Jacqueline Michelle Woodward



Jackie was raised with her younger sister in a small town in Maryland outside of Baltimore, where her mother was a school teacher and her father was a surgeon. Jackie graduated from Wellesley College in 1991 and Northeastern Law school in 1994. Jackie was hired by the Miami Dade Public Defenders office where her primary training was in traffic criminal defense. Upon leaving the Public Defenders office, Jackie worked at a local criminal defense firm until she formed Woodward and Reizenstein with her husband Phil Reizenstein in 2001.

From sexual battery to DUI, from drug trafficking to traffic cases, Jackie brings her vast experience in the State courts of Florida to help defend every client.

Jackie represents nightclubs and restaurants and advises them on security procedures that helps them avoid situations in which employees or patrons could be arrested. When there is an incident, Jackie has in the past successfully defended security personnel who were arrested. In this area of her practice Jackie concentrates on the quick and discrete resolution of the incident which helps reduce the civil liability of the establishment.

Most clients who speak with Jackie come away feeling that she truly cares about them as a person and will work for the best outcome in their case.

Many clients come to see Jackie after having been arrested and in jail for the first time in their life. Jackie knows how frightening that experience can be. Jackie also knows that the process of trying to find the right lawyer can be both bewildering and frustrating.

Jackie likes to tell clients "I want to give you as much information as possible. Knowledge is power. When I help a client learn about the legal issues in their case, together we can make the best strategic decisions to get the best results."
