Why Choose a Board Certified Trial Attorney?
The Dedicated Legal Counsel You Deserve
We know there are many difficult hardships associated with personal injury and wrongful death. When you have suffered a serious injury or lost a loved one due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another, you must have the best attorney on your side. There are a number of credentials that many lawyers around the nation will boast, but very few of them can proudly say that they are a Board Certified Trial Lawyer.
James Wood is a Board Certified Civil Law Trial Specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. He is also a Board Certified Personal Injury Lawyer by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Becoming a Board Certified Trial Lawyer requires trying as lead counsel a significant number of jury trials, passing a rigorous written examination, and being peer-reviewed every five years by judges and other attorneys practicing in the same field of law. This goes to show that he is not only respected and esteemed by his clients, but also by his peers as well. This specialized training has set him apart from the rest and could be very beneficial to have when filing your personal injury claim.
Let his experience, training & skills work for you!
This is just one accolade in a long list of prestigious accomplishments. In addition to having a Board Certified Trial Lawyer on your legal team, James Wood has over 20 years of experience. He is a member of the Million Dollar Advocate's Forum. He has also been voted one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers of New Mexico by the National Trial Lawyers Association in 2011 and 2012. Some of his large monetary wins include: a $10.8 million jury verdict against a meatpacker in federal court (reversed on appeal), a $2 million settlement against a meatpacker, a $1.9 million settlement against an oil company, a $1.5 million settlement against a doctor and hospital, a $1.25 settlement against a railroad, and $1.2 million settlement against a hospital. Attorney Wood is not afraid to go up against even the largest corporations and medical centers, but he will relentlessly pursue justice for his clients.
Some of Mr. Wood's proudest wins, however, resulted in verdicts or settlements of far less than $1 million. He has helped hundreds of families, representing children, elderly, and single mothers stand up to powerful corporate interests, insurance companies, hospital chains, and nursing homes.
