Nida Wood

Litigation Manager

Nida Chaudhri WoodNida Wood always wanted to have a career where she could make a difference and help individuals, so she decided law school was the best route in order to achieve this goal.

“Family law takes this a step further since all issues in family law are so personal and emotional for each individual,” Ms. Wood said. “Issues in family law can affect a person’s life forever. The opportunity to help people in potentially life-lasting issues is very rewarding.”

“It is a tough road, but it is imperative that clients are completely honest with their attorney, whether the facts are favorable or unfavorable, so that the attorney can represent their client to the fullest,” she said.
