Ocean kayaking can be challenging but for Gary Woodfield it is just one of many challenges he enjoys whether helping a client with a complex case, or helping those in need as a board member of the Palm Beach County Food Bank.
A former prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York, Gary practices in the area of general civil, commercial and probate litigation in both state and federal courts throughout the country. He has tried more than 50 jury and non-jury trials in a wide range of cases including a matter involving investors in the Madoff Ponzi scheme.
Gary has handled disputes involving probate and trust litigation, removal and surcharge of trustees, securities fraud, defamation, insurance matters, and much more. He is proud of the work he has done for his clients and prouder still of what the firm brings to clients. “We are a unique, small, highly skilled, diverse, full-service law firm,” says Gary. “We provide service in a holistic way, and not many firms can do that.”
A former Captain in the United States Army Reserve, Gary, an avid reader of biography and history books, says one of his favorite books is the Seven Pillars of Wisdom, the autobiographical account of British soldier T.E. Lawrence.
