After graduating from Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law and spending a decade handling complex child custody, child welfare, mental health, substance abuse, and criminal cases, Mr. Woodnick founded his firm in 2010 with a pointed interest in helping clients not only solve their current legal challenges, but also minimize the possibility of needing his services ever again.
“While Gregg’s cases run the gamut from simple street crime to complicated family dissolutions,” said one colleague, “his approach to every case is remarkably consistent. He weighs the psychological and sociological factors that most lawyers ignore, and that empowers him to negotiate healthy results for his clients. His insight and focus on all aspects of his cases gives him an advantage in the courtroom when trial is necessary.”
A staunch proponent of same-sex rights, a cooperating counsel for the ACLU, a guest instructor at Midwestern College of Osteopathic Medicine, and an adjunct professor at the Phoenix School of Law, Mr. Woodnick has provided legal commentary for NBC News and consulting services to attorneys handling maltreatment-of-children and sentence-mitigation cases.
In his free time, Mr. Woodnick enjoys spending time with his family and indulging one of his vices: Lifetime TV shows and original movies.
“For my birthday,” he recalled, “my wife got me the Lifetime channel package-- you know, Television for Women -- for only six dollars per month. And my life hasn’t been the same since.”
Better or worse?
“So, so, SO much better,” he said.
