I had to hire an attorney after 29 years of marriage. I had never needed an attorney before this matter. I Was not sure what to expect. Ric was very straightforward upon meeting him for the first time. I felt comfortable with him. He walked me through the process, and explained everything thoroughly along the way. He was very attentive, and always responded to any, and all of my questions in a very timely manner. Often quicker than I would have expected. The end results could not have turned out better. (Thanks Ric ) God forbid, I ever need a family lawyer again, but if I did I would not hesitate to contact. Ric Woodward attorney again !
