How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I became involved in bankruptcy law early in my career through a senior partner in the firm. I enjoyed the practice and the people I worked for and with. I decided it was a great area of law in which to concentrate.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I strongly encourage clients to educate themselves on the legal issues they face.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am always willing to review clients' documents.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

Our local court rules limit our involvement in cases where we are not actually representing the debtor. I do participate in local free legal clinics where I can give direction to individuals who choose to represent themselves.

William A. Woodrow

I was admitted to practice law in 1976 and have been a member of the Adams & Woodrow firm ever since.

I have practiced law for over 35 years in my hometown area, so my strong legal background is combined with my familiarity of the clients I serve and their economic circumstances.

I am extremely sensitive to the individual needs of my clients and enjoy a good reputation with my peers in the local community. I insist that clients have my personal attention throughout the entire bankruptcy process.

Personal interests:

Spending time with my family, reading, and outdoor activities.
