We consider ourselves kindred spirits. Two women, a generation apart, with such similar views and interests that forming a partnership was little more than a legal document. So after almost eight years of working together that is exactly what we did. Our vision continues to grow and so does our story; for now, here is how it all started.
After graduating from Widener University School of Law in 1995, Michele began her legal career at Schmittinger & Rodriguez, P.A. in Dover. She went on to obtain her Master of Laws in Taxation & Estate Planning from Villanova University of Law and to practice at George B. Smith Attorneys at Law in Georgetown, which later became Smith, O'Donnell, Procino & Berl, LLP after Michele became partner in 2000. It was in 2005 that Michele opened her own firm in Seaford known as Procino-Wells & Woodland, LLC.
About a year later, Amber B. Woodland joined the firm as a part-time intern, while attaining her Bachelor of Arts Degree from Flagler College. With law school in mind, Amber immersed herself in learning all facets of the firm's practice areas. Once in attendance at Regent University School of Law, she continued her part-time work with the firm, but then as a law clerk. Over the course of those years, Michele forged ahead with her practice and commitment to the local community.
In 2010, after earning her law degree, Amber joined Procino-Wells & Woodland, LLC as an associate attorney. It is noteworthy to mention that Amber was admitted to the Delaware Bar on the exact same day as Michele, fifteen years later.
Today, Procino-Wells & Woodland, LLC is located in a charming old house in downtown Seaford that was renovated by Michele in 2006. The rich history of the home is also personal for Michele as her oldest son, Joshua, attended preschool in the same building and was a member of its last graduating class. In the fall of 2014, Michele and Amber will open a second office in Lewes.
The attorneys of Procino-Wells & Woodland, LLC are supported by a staff of ten, each of whom is dedicated to one of the firm's dedicated practice areas. The team prides themselves in offering quality, expert legal services in a personable way. Having worked hard to become a "boutique" firm concentrating in only certain areas of the law, Procino-Wells & Woodland, LLC strives to maintain a small-town, comfortable and welcoming office atmosphere. The combination of legal expertise with the highest quality of personal attention makes Procino-Wells & Woodland, LLC a real gem among law firms.
