Wood Jackson PLLC handles complex litigation and other sensitive matters for businesses and individuals.

We have achieved public recognition for providing sound legal advice and counseling, as well as for our strong track record of trying and winning cases.

We also believe lawyers are called upon to give back to their communities and we devote a significant amount of our time to pro bono representation and other public service.
