Litigation is a scary thing… but KNOWLEDGE is POWER over fear! I provide knowledge, based on MORE THAN 29 YEARS of experience in family law matters, including divorce, time sharing, alimony and/or child support. My experience includes handling cases from beginning to end for hundreds of individuals that experienced problems just like YOURS.
If a fight is necessary, you have one best chance to present your case to a judge. You need an experienced, knowledgeable and aggressive lawyer to guide you through the case and to fight for your rights.
However, not every case involves a courtroom battle. Cases often settle before seeing a judge. Cases often settle in mediation. In those matters, you need an attorney that will explain to you the value of settling your case, and to help you evaluate when a settlement offer is a good one or a bad one for you.

Mr. Woodward came highly recommended and I was very impressed with his knowledge, compassionate demeanor , and professionalism. He is well respected by fellow attorneys and judges. I hired Ric to handle a difficult child custody/child support case for my son, in which, there was never a marriage. The state of Florida has complicated laws when concerning child custody concerns when individuals are not married. Mr. Woodward not only put my son at ease, he was also able to do that for my grandchild's mother. Ric was able to bring this case to a conclusion that was in the best interest of all parties involved. If you are looking for an honest, fairly priced attorney, Ric Woodward is the man for you.
I had some legal matters in the last year that Ric helped me resolve. He did an outstanding job as my legal consultant and the issues were resolved in a timely and efficient manner. He kept me up to date on all issues, timings and rulings and I appreciate his expertise and knowledge of the law. I will definitely use him again if the need should arise. Thank you Ric and team for all of your help. Sincerely Tom C
Mr. Woodward represented me in my divorce. He was always available when I had questions through phone or email.The retainer was reasonable and what I really liked is that he sent me a detailed itemized bill each month. This went through mediation and went very smoothly. He thoroughly reviewed all of my financial documents for completeness and accuracy. Hopefully I Never have to do this again but if I do, I would definitely Use Mr. Woodward.

I had a difficult divorce case with a foreign national. Ric was able to get me out rather quickly and inexpensively.
Hired Rick when my wife decided to divorce me and I was lost. He gave me some direction into what was going on and helped me through a stressful hard time. Thank You Ric, Bruce
Although not able to help me directly due to my case being in another state.... I was contacted immediately and given the best advice that I could get. Honest and straightforward. Thank you sir.
Ric uses his years of service and experience to deliver the highest quality of attention, organization and knowledge to each case. He made me feel as if he was fighting for his own family and children as he stood up for my rights as a father. He did this showcasing the utmost level of professionalism and walking in integrity, though I once believed to be impossible if I was to ever deal with an attorney. Ric made sure to maximize the use my finances and I never felt in the dark or not communicated with. Divorce is definitely an unfortunate outcome, but if you have to go through what I did, I strongly recommend giving his office a call.
Ric Woodward is a very good attorney. He took over my case right before my divorce trial. With his legal expertise and experience, he successfully represented me at trial and handled post-trial matters well also. His billing is detailed oriented and he is a very kind person.
Ric has helped me so much since 2018! He guided me through every step in the process of my divorce and custody plan. He is extremely responsive and always offers knowledge on how he thinks you’ll get the best results. I immediately went back to Ric when I needed to modify my time sharing plan, and again he was nothing shy of amazing. Everything is done in a timely manner and explained thoroughly. I cannot recommend Ric enough!
