I have worked with Ms. Woodall dating back to the early 90’s when she was a state prosecutor and I was a public defender. We had trials together. She went on to become a federal prosecutor and later in private practice. She is a person with highest integrity and vast legal knowledge amassed over 20 years in various roles within the criminal justice system.
