About Coleman & Woodward Attorneys at Law
Coleman & Woodward Law offices take a unique stance on legal representation. We strive to remain in lockstep with our clients. This means that the process is collaborative and transparent. The goals of our clients, a strategy most likely to achieve those goals, and managing any impasses that arise along the way together is the fundamental approach.
We are Personal Injury Lawyers, Divorce Lawyers, and also practice an extensive amount of Probate and Estate Planning, Real Estate Law, as well as Business and Contract Law. The beauty of these practice areas is that we can often synthesize representation. For instance, we have handled a Probate, Wrongful Death Act Personal Injury Matter, and Custody Matter for one client before, because one representation flowed naturally into the next and we were able to advocate for her in all three areas simultaneously and seamlessly.
