If you are searching for an attorney to help you with child support in Shreveport or Bossier City, Woody Nesbitt would be pleased to offer his experience to help you get the outcome you deserve and expect. Woody also take cases for grandparent visitation in Bossier City, Shreveport, and the surrounding area.
He takes his sizable litigation experience earned from criminal prosecutions, injury and death claim litigation, family law litigation, criminal defense, and what he’s learned from handling between 10,000 and 12,000 family law cases through the years as a lawyer and as a family court judge, and blend that with his philosophy of keeping a client OUT OF contested litigation if at all possible. Woody tries to resolve each and every family law case, if at all possible, outside of the courtroom.
Woody also uses his experience as a certified family law mediator, and his eight years of experience as a family court judge in a jurisdiction of 225,000 folks, where I try to get cases resolved.
Woody Nesbitt has been called upon to prosecute 23 murder cases in his prosecution days. He never lost one and met the “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard. In his 60 felony criminal prosecutions undertaken through the years, he had one “not guilty” verdict.
If Woody has to try a case, he prepares each and every one like it is a criminal prosecution, just as he’s done in the civil jury cases The result being that Woody has been fortunate enough to have never lost one. ALL family law matter are presented to a judge only, never a jury.
Woody believes you get your best compromise/consent agreement resolutions by preparing thoroughly, i.e., coming to the battlefield with all your weapons and ready to use them…when both sides see what the other side has got, both are motivated to seriously try to resolve the matter without the risks of battle.
Woody likened litigation, from where the client sits, to being a patient in a surgery procedure where you are semi-conscious. You can hear, you can see, but you cannot talk! That’s the reality of litigation if you are in the client’s chair. I try to keep my clients out of it if at all possible.
