What others have said about Hon. Gregory H. Woods


Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 24065
Judge Woods is an intelligent, thorough, and very even handed jurist. He holds Plaintiffs and Defendants to the fire. He is generous with extensions provided that you have good cause for them. His legal decisions are very well thought out and his analysis is thorough even with regard to minute details.

He is fair, impartial, and committed to justice and I truly believe he will be headed to the Second Circuit rather quickly.

As an Obama appointee, he is a relatively young jurist, which means his turnaround time for motion practice is fairly quick.

I have the highest regard for Judge Woods. This is based on extensive proceedings before him in a civil case, which included multiple pretrial conferences and rulings, a one-week jury trial, and a comprehensive post-trial motion. He is smart, even-handed, dedicated, decisive, reasoned, efficient and effective.

Judge Woods is a star, and will likely be elevated to the Second Circuit before too long. He is extremely smart, practical, hard-working and fair.
