Briny Woods is an experienced litigator and has successfully represented numerous clients throughout the State of California.

Mr. Woods has also been on both sides of the litigation, representing plaintiffs and defendants. For numerous years he represented insurance companies in defense cases, which has given him the knowledge of what their strategies may include. In the defense field, Mr. Woods was selected by a major insurance company to train insurance adjusters on how to handle litigation cases and was further responsible to train adjusters on handling premises liability cases, which typically involved slips, trips, and falls.

Mr. Woods has effectively litigated cases as "simple" as minimal impact rear-end auto accidents to complex major crashes involving big rigs where clients suffering serious bodily injuries. By working on both sides of the spectrum, he knows and combats the fact that insurance companies will attempt to pay as little as they can.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
