Jessica J. Wood

, Principal

Jessica Wood is one of the top 100 Super Lawyers™ in Georgia.  She has won all of her trials, including two directed verdicts.  However, most cases do not go to trial: clients need to control costs, outcome, and the time expenditure of key executives.  Jessica is known for achieving outstanding results for her clients without going to trial, including pre-suit resolutions, summary judgment dismissals after suit is filed, and defense settlements for no payment.  Her practice areas include breach of fiduciary duty, contracts, employment, fraud, tortious interference with business relations, and trade secrets.
Jessica is active in the legal community.  She serves on the Atlanta Bar Association’s Board of Directors and on advisory boards for Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Inc. and Good Thinking, Inc., a non-profit that creates communications strategies for other non-profits.  She created Water Cooler Office Hours, an innovative mentoring program that allows law students to find role models and champions in an informal environment.   In addition, Jessica is a frequent lecturer at law schools and continuing legal education classes for attorneys on a wide range of topics, including contract drafting, mindfulness in the practice of law, networking, pro bono work, and trial techniques.
