The purpose of this scholarship is to incentivize students who are interested in criminal law to continue their education, whether they are college students entering law school, or law students in their first, second, or third year of studies.

Mr. Woods and Max had solid communication with us. They also can get their point across without being hateful. As a lawyer, you have the ability to help people in need. While being lawyer allows you to seek justice for people, it also provides you with emotional rewards. Mr. Woods and his team Fizwoods went above and beyond for my family. He knew that we were traveling very far for court, he even met us at his establishment on a Sunday. I don’t know any lawyer that works on a Sunday. We was out of state on vacation. We had carried a hand gun in our vehicle. A simple traffic stop for speeding turned into a mess. We didn’t not know the law in Maryland was so strict, against guns. We are from Kentucky where hand gun laws are totally different. Mr. Woods worked hard on our case, and made it where we only had to make one trip from our home, which was 10 hours away. He literally went above and beyond, to instruct us of all of our rights, and all of the scenarios that could take place. If at anytime we are in need of a lawyer in the future, I would not hesitate to reach out to his Law firm. He is highly recommended from our family to yours. I have no doubt that at the end of your case with him you or Max you will have better peace of mind, and be at ease at the end of your case.
