Reviews

"On a five-star scale, I would rate my overall experience with Jon Csuka as a five.  Jon was very good at explaining the various ways to look at an issue in a way that made me think more constructively about my case. He advocated for what I wanted and did a great job at getting me to see different aspects of my case and how they could potentially affect me in a way that I couldn’t have on my own.  I would recommend Woodruff Family Law Group to someone else."

"Adam Furr was very laid back, so it wasn’t like talking to a lawyer, it was just like, you know, having a normal conversation about the situation; he definitely put me at ease.  He let me read over all the paperwork which was in lawyer form, and I was kind of lost.  Then he would explain, and kind of simplify it if you will, in the easiest way possible.  I think his timeliness in responding to questions was one of his biggest strength, he immediately replied to e-mails and my questions were answered quickly.  When I first walked in, I was a little taken aback just because I’d never had to talk to a lawyer or anything, but the gentleman at the front desk, Josh, he’s very welcoming. And then everyone I talked to said hello, was very friendly, so it was very welcoming. Everything went smooth, and everyone was very helpful.  Woodruff Family Law Group made it easy for me."

Jessica Bullock is knowledgeable and professional. She has a “no nonsense” demeanor; I appreciated her level-headed advice, and her cool, calm attitude. I was very happy with my overall experience at Woodruff Family Law Group. Stephanie Griffin always returned my calls promptly. Leesa Poag also responded promptly to let me know that my e-mails had been received and would be answered soon. Everyone there is friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful.”

Adam Furr made sure I understood what he was saying, no ‘legalese.’  He only wanted to keep me informed. The communication was “5-star;” I got voicemails, e-mails…Anyone answering the phone would give me an answer if they could – I wasn’t left in the dark.  Sometimes we couldn’t get an answer right away, you know, and the staff would have to get back to us – I understand that, but we weren’t left in the dark, they would go to another lawyer [at the firm] if Adam wasn’t available and get back to us.  The atmosphere of Woodruff Family Law Group was friendly.  We were well-treated; everyone was nice when they answered the phone, much less when we came in.  I really have been very impressed. Woodruff Family Law Group, y’all got your stuff together.”

Carolyn Woodruff is great, hands down.  We felt Carolyn generally wanted us to win the case and her efforts reflected that. The creative thinking she demonstrated--looking at things from a different perspective-- is something we feel was crucial to our outcome.* We cannot begin to express the gratitude we have for the entire staff at Woodruff Family Law. We felt that our questions were answered in a reasonable time and, more importantly, we felt everyone we came in contact with were both skilled and knowledgeable. Jennifer Crissman was fantastic to work with. Very kind, considerate, and supportive. I don’t think we could have made it through the last 15 minutes when the judge was giving his ruling without her support. We know there are so many others at the office who played important roles in our case and we feel just as grateful to the unsung heroes as well. We know we were not their only case but we always felt like we were. We are Woodruff Family Law Group’s biggest fans.”

“On a scale of 1-5, I would give Adam Furr a “5-star” rating.  He was good to work with.  He is to the point, and he lays out the pros and cons in a realistic way.  Adam definitely advocated for my goals and outcome—he even pointed out things I hadn’t thought of.  The firm itself was great; I was taken care of every time I came in – from welcoming me to seating me.  The overall quality of service was great.  I’ve already recommended Adam and Woodruff Family Law Group to others!”

“Love the atmosphere at Woodruff Family Law Group; Friendly, welcoming….I know one day I came at an odd time, and I was offered lunch, which was just very thoughtful. That initial meeting- I liked having Carolyn Woodruff and Steve Coggin both in there. Steve made a lot of eye contact with me and asked a lot of questions; Steve was engaged with me a little more, whereas Carolyn was studying-- she was really into what was in front of her. I think that was a wonderful balance with the two of them. Also, Carolyn looks into the facts of the case—beyond the emotion; she’s not out to just fight or just to win for wins sake.  It’s about trying to do what is fair and that’s a good quality. I would recommend Woodruff Family Law Group, they were great.”

I think Taylor Clay is very personable, which is important especially when you’re going through a divorce.  I think that the communication was very good; I would say she was responsive to what was going on.  If I ever had a question, I felt comfortable reaching out. Understanding that with the court system, I know that nothing runs quickly; as far as procedural steps along the way I thought it moved along very well; occasionally something would occur, but I would say anything that was within her control, the process went smoothly. Overall, I felt comfortable with Taylor, she tried to get as fair an outcome as she could, and I felt that everybody on staff was a member of the Woodruff Team to assist and guide me.

I was very pleased with how Taylor Clay processed my case. She was very well organized, especially during my court hearing. In the courtroom, she was aggressive when she needed to be, yet always calm and polite to the judge and the opposing party. She was quick with responses during my court hearing and was obviously very knowledgeable. She was prompt in returning emails, and/or phone calls and good at breaking down some of the legal terms into things that were more understandable to the average layman. She was good at keeping expectations reasonable, yet fought very hard for my goals, and we were able to achieve a very good outcome.  I would most definitely recommend Taylor and Woodruff Family Law Group to others.

Carolyn Woodruff is very strong with the numbers and overall strategy.  She has very good macro business valuation skills.  She can also look forward to a likely final result.  Carolyn was also good at pushing my matter forward.  My matter was pretty complex...She knows what is important and what are meaningless diversions.  Carolyn advocated as hard as she could for me but always told me privately what was realistic. Steve Coggin is also good with numbers, but he is better at reminding clients not to sweat the small stuff and keep focused on the end result.”

"Jessica Bullock responded really well to all of my questions, and I didn’t have to wait to get responses. It was really nice, the mode of communication. She was really knowledgeable.  You kind of have to give and take—I already knew there’s going to be some negotiation--she helped me through that. I think she was awesome and I was very, very happy with the outcome. The staff was very friendly as well; the firm was very welcoming."

"I thought Jon Csuka was very understanding.  He was definitely reassuring, but without making any guarantees or promises, that he couldn’t necessarily keep, you know.  When I first walked into Jon’s office, I was pretty much like…lost, you know, I didn’t know what to do. I was in a tough situation and just wanted to keep my kids safe. I got a lot of good advice and ultimately got the result that I wanted."

"Carolyn Woodruff was very professional and very helpful, since this is my first time having to do anything like this, she put me at ease.  What I liked the MOST about this is she told me what to expect, what could happen and then we went through the options. I opted for one of them, and she suggested we ought to think about it a little.  We talked some more and I went with the option she suggested and that’s the one that worked the best.  She was very helpful.  Carolyn was very pleasant and put my wife and myself at ease the very first time we talked to her."

"I know that sometimes that things occur that are out of our control, but for those items within grasp, Adam Furr was appropriate with his efficiency.  Not only did Adam communicate both concisely and timely, but he was also thorough and methodical in his approach.  He advocated for me, absolutely."

"I liked Jon Csuka’s candor, intuition, and overall knowledge of the court system.  He was strong with communication, particularly in following up.  Also, I appreciated his willingness to be flexible.  Jon knew that I was on a time crunch, and made sure to have a quick turnaround; his timeliness was spot on.  He strategized to minimize the negative effects of my situation and absolutely advocated for me.  Jon was fantastic."

"Both Carolyn Woodruff and her paralegal, Steve Coggin, are unique.  Carolyn is bright, crafty, razor sharp, and Steve Coggin isn’t far behind.  Both of them are very intelligent and are excellent."

"Adam Furr was very well-prepared for our conversations; he did his research and gave me very clear guidance and direction.  Adam is personable and seemed to be genuine about his care of my case and situation.  For example, he could tell that I was not trying to be aggressive in the case and was just trying to do the right thing.  I felt like he acknowledged and supported that.  He gave me options that aligned with what I wanted to do.  Adam advocated for me."

"My unique set of needs and circumstances were very well addressed by Carolyn Woodruff.  Her knowledge of multiple facets of the law, including family, business, and tax law, made it obvious that she has been in this market for a very long time.  The entire staff of Woodruff Family Law Group is extremely nice.  Despite their dealings in a not real happy business, they did a good job of trying to make clients feel at ease and comfortable."  

"I had a really good experience working with Adam Furr.  Obviously, mine was an unfortunate circumstance, but I believed he handled it really well.  His strength is in getting his client’s desired outcome and pushing for what is in their best interest.  As someone who had not gone through a divorce before, I felt like a sheep being herded.  But, Adam was really good about advising me on my rights.  He is knowledgeable which is refreshing and was much needed.  I would recommend the firm in general, but Adam specifically.  He did a great job."

"When working with Adam Furr, everything worked out a lot better than I thought it was going to.  He is very thorough with his job.  He had the tedious task of going through so many financial spreadsheets, but he was able to work through it all and give a great argument on my behalf.  If I needed to talk to him, I could.  The lines of communication were always there and open.  I didn’t know how I was going to get through this, but he worked with me, and I appreciate that.  The overall quality of my experience was excellent."

"Taylor Clay is always there, always available, and always ready to do what needs to be done.  We worked well together on formulating what our plan was and on how to get my case resolved in the easiest manner possible.  Taylor always had a lot of different ideas and was very good at advising me on probability.  For example, “If this happens, then this may happen.”  I was left with a good idea as to what was feasible and how the court process worked.  Being in the situation I was in, it was nice working with someone who had that knowledge.  The law is the law, and she knows  the law.  Taylor is a great person, and I would definitely use her again if something came up again.  She protected me and my kids."

"Jessica Bullock is top star.  Her follow up is incredible.  She always went the extra mile with every bit of information I gave her.  Jessica is patient, understanding, and always seemed to care.  She was on our side. To anyone with family law issues, I would recommend both Jessica Bullock and Woodruff Family Law Group." 

"Carolyn Woodruff is both brilliant and tenacious.  Her background in finance and accounting is all-together amazing.  Especially when in combination with the experience of Steve Coggin, one of the firm’s paralegals, Carolyn made sure the whole picture was brought to light.  I never doubted her ability to stand her ground and remain in control; she had my back and went above & beyond to keep my best interest at heart.  Considering the circumstances, my time with Woodruff Family Law Group was the best experience I could have hoped for; they helped me to stay sane." 

"Taylor Clay provided really fast feedback.  If I sent an email, I got an email back, usually within a few hours, but definitely within 24 hours.  We had to contact my wife’s attorney too, and Taylor was pretty good about getting updates from them.  As her client, I felt that Taylor was fighting for me.  She had enough professionalism to fight on my behalf.  In regard to Woodruff Family Law Group, itself, I really like their system of documentation.  I don’t have to worry where the hours are going; it’s pretty nice." 

"One thing that particularly stood out when working with Adam Furr was how thorough he was.  He went the extra mile to ensure we had everything we needed and were prepared for anything else.  This leads me to believe that being correctly prepared is a standard for him.  Aside from being extremely thorough, he came across in court as very confident.  He was sure about where we stood and were asking for.  Communication was one of the best parts of the experience.  If Adam was not available, someone else was, and they would get him the message; he would then get back to me quickly.  Everyone at Woodruff Family Law Group has been really great."

"Both Carolyn Woodruff and Steve Coggin were about their business; we love that about them.  Carolyn’s wisdom (it’s more than just knowledge) of the law was a big comfort to us.  Steve, similarly, was laid back and gave valuable guidance.  We appreciate the attention to detail given to the case and were reassured that the firm was there for us.  There was one incident regarding an emergency with one of the children, and I was directed to get a form to my attorney.  I waited at Woodruff Family Law Group for them to open, and was greeted by one of the staff.  They ushered us in and offered us a room and beverages until Carolyn arrived.  Everyone is friendly, and the firm is comfortable.  In the future, I would refer people to the firm."

"Jessica Bullock has a real grasp and depth of understanding of Family Law. She is professional, yet personable and empathetic, in dealing with a situation.  Her strengths are her undeniable knowledge of family law and her willingness to negotiate from an aggressive position.  Jessica also has an excellent ability to communicate. She is direct, straightforward, and clear in communicating the issues at hand for comprehension of what is being done, in addition to how they apply to the rule of law and the court. Also, If Jessica was out of town for any reason she had someone in the office to whom I could communicate.  I thought the quality of the paperwork, order of work, and the command of pleadings was excellent.  There is no doubt that Jessica was a strong and competent advocate for our needs and situation.

"Taylor Clay has a really good grasp of the way things work.  She knows the process well, is level-headed, and knows how to keep our emotions in check.  During the case, our appetite, sleep, and stress levels were out of sync, but once we got Taylor, that all went away.  You can’t put a price on that.  Taylor was mindful of time-sensitive correspondence and had a quick turnaround when responding to the opposing counsel, as well as to our own questions.  Taylor is fantastic; on a scale from 1-10, 10!" 

"The value for my money Is one of the reasons I came back to Woodruff Family Law Group.  My experience far exceeded my expectations.  Working with Jon Csuka, in particular, was great.  He was consistent in both attitude and approach, as well as professional and thorough, with great attention to detail.  He was always fair, something he maintained when negotiating with the opposing counsel.  I was always contacted right away with any critical information and was included in the decision-making process.  When making recommendations to others, Woodruff is always the first name out of my mouth, and Jon is the guy I tell them to contact."

"After realizing I wasn’t able to handle my case by myself, I sought out Woodruff Family Law Group.  My attorney, Taylor Clay, was able to take a frustrating situation and provide an entirely different way of approaching it.  From the beginning, she was on board and genuinely concerned about the situation.  She remained confident and reassured me that the case was fixable.  While she made no guarantee of results, I was made very clear of what to expect.  Prior to this experience, television was my only indicator of how the court process worked.  Yet, Taylor guided me to ensure I knew what was going on.  Just like something you would see on NFL reel highlights, Taylor’s closing statements in court were ridiculous.  She is a rock star and always gave an incredible performance; I could not be happier."

"I would recommend Jessica Bullock and Woodruff Family Law Group.  The firm staff was always super nice, and when they asked how I was doing, they seemed genuinely concerned about my well-being.  Jessica was extremely professional and helpful.  She remained calm and collected, even if I was panicking.  I appreciated her ability to listen well, but also to maintain a matter-of-fact, to the point communication style.  Jessica used her experience to come to a fair agreement* with the opposing counsel.  I appreciate all that Jessica and the firm did for me."

"In family law, it is pretty important to understand not only the law, but also people.  Jonathan Csuka has this experience.  He understands what motivates people and the type of thinking behind a person’s decisions and requests.  Whether it was through phone, email, or in-person, Jon was easy to communicate with and explained things well.  He ensured I felt prepared before going into mediations, which helped me to adjust my expectations and feel more at ease.  Jon is hard-working and good at what he does.  I have recommended friends to contact the firm."  

"I chose Woodruff Family Law Group for both their good online reviews and readily available appointments.  Ultimately, I’m glad I did; despite my circumstance of dealing with a child custody case, I had a pleasant experience.  Each time I came into the firm, I felt as though the staff was ready for me.  I was greeted politely, sat in a family-friendly room, and was treated in a professional and courteous manner.  My attorney, Jonathan Csuka, knew the law, was ethical, and did not tell me just what I wanted to hear.  As alarming as some of the details seemed to be at the time, I always appreciated his candid approach and efforts to find new solutions.  Both Jon and Jennifer Crissman, Jon’s assistant attorney, were caring and empathetic.  They were both very responsive to my needs and communicated with me in an excellent manner."  

"Off the bat, I was really impressed with Adam Furr.  He exuded confidence and gave great advice during our initial consultation.  My gut feeling? He is the kind of attorney I wanted representing me.  Furthermore, the support staff went through the hiring paperwork very well, to the point that I clearly understood what my obligation was as a client, and Adam’s was as my attorney.  My wife and I had drafted a separation agreement before hiring Adam.  He showed great concern and acted as my advocate to ensure that the agreement was finalized in such a way that protected me.  Despite it being a difficult one, I have been very happy with the process."

"To me, it is important to have an attorney who is knowledgeable and knows what they’re talking about; Jonathan Csuka never failed this standard.  I knew the degree of Jon’s expertise from day one when he did not have to “get back to me” about any of my questions; he knew right away.  All of my needs were met, and I felt supported.  Even when it came to billing, the business manager, Stephanie Griffin, always responded to my questions promptly and was patient.  I stand by the idea that you get what you pay for, and that is mirrored in the value of my experience with Woodruff Family Law Group."

“Our case involved custody, and it was complicated. We did considerable research in determining what North Carolina law firm might be best. We needed to protect our grandchild and our daughter. Woodruff Family Law Group’s team worked in full harmony and synchronization. Carolyn Woodruff gave us clear direction on what needed to happen. I found Woodruff to be knowledgeable and caring.”

“My case involved equitable distribution, child support and child custody, divorce and separation, and spousal support (alimony). Jessica Bullock was compassionate and effective. Her communication with me was on a human level. Woodruff Family Law Group was a wise investment in not only my future, but the future of my children.”

“Woodruff Family Law Group has a friendly, hospitable environment. I was comfortable from the beginning. Taylor Clay had determination, passion, and work ethic that was great. I recommend Taylor and Woodruff Family Law Group.”

Carolyn Woodruff, Taylor Clay, and Steve Coggin (North Carolina Certified Paralegal) were terrific in handling my case. Carolyn was thorough on drafting the legal documents; Taylor kept me at ease, and Steve crunched numbers. This is a strong team when it comes to divorce, custody, and property division.”

"Carolyn Woodruff is a caring bulldog.”

"Carolyn Woodruff’s patience, understanding, and compassion led to my satisfaction in working with her and her firm. There is never any doubt that she knows what she is doing. The staff and atmosphere at the Woodruff Family Law office were very welcoming and made me feel right at home. I was largely pleased with the service quality."

"I walked into the Woodruff Family Law Office with a huge mess, a few years in the making. Carolyn Woodruff was able to make sense of my file and build a strong case in my support. When she is involved, there is no question of timeliness and efficiency. Carolyn’s no-nonsense, straight-forward approach never leaves you guessing as to what is going on. She listens well, is smart, and runs a law firm full of support and hospitality."

"I had a great experience working with Woodruff Family Law Group and would recommend them wholly. Despite having a case that seemed to have no resolution in sight, Carolyn Woodruff was able to resolve my case in four months*. In Carolyn’s words “we are going to bring it home for you.” And she did. The hospitality of the firm, in general, is great; I am always greeted by name and attended to promptly. Carolyn Woodruff’s evident ability to communicate with both her clients and other attorneys makes me confident that she will get something done when she says it will be."
