I am Laura Anderson Wood, For 23 years, I have been a fierce advocate for those I represent. First it was children when I spent five years working for the Department of Children of Families in Florida. Next it was victims of crime as an Assistant District Attorney for 16 years. I bring that advocacy and 21 years of courtroom skills to representing those who are going through some of the toughest experiences of their lives.
I am a Valodsta native. I am married to Brian and we have 5 children between us. As someone who has been through divorce and child custody actions personally, I bring a compassion and perspective that not many other attorneys can. Because of my experience with the victims of child abuse, I am also particularly conscious of the effects of divorce and custody fights on children.
Now in private practice, my knowledge, skills and practical trial experience can help you in your case. Having worked as a prosecutor, I know the methods and angles the opposing party will likely use, and I put that valuable insight to use for my clients.
My practice areas include personal injury, general litigation, guardianship of minors or incapacitated adults, divorce, child custody, and criminal defense, and my office is located in Valdosta, Georgia. I accept clients from Georgia and Florida.
