OWNER & FOUNDER

Michael L. Wood

Mike Wood is lead attorney at the Law Office of Michael L. Wood. Mike was born and raised just north of Atlanta in Gainesville, Georgia. He began his college career at the University of North Georgia on an academic scholarship and graduated with honors. From there, he pursued his law degree at the University of Tulsa where he received the highest award for trial practice and also served as the student body president.

Mike Wood is an experienced, qualified trial attorney. Mike's legal career began in private practice where he would spend the next four years representing clients in criminal, bankruptcy, family and personal injury matters. During that time, Mike's desire to be in the courtroom and to focus on his trial skills continued to grow.

Mike Wood joined the Lincoln County Prosecuting Attorney's office to focus on his trial practice.

There, he served as the felony domestic violence prosecutor and also represented the Family Support Division where he pursued actions for paternity, child support and foreign judgments. Mike then moved to the St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney's office where he prosecuted hundreds of driving while intoxicated (DWI) and drug-related offenses.

Mike likes to say: "Trial experience matters."

Mike now focuses his practice on criminal and family law, where he was recently named a “Rising Star” two years in a row by Super Lawyers Magazine in 2016 and 2017, an honor reserved for those who exhibit excellence in practice. Mike represents clients in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Lincoln County and Warren County where he also serves as a guardian ad litem.

Super Lawyers magazine named Mike Wood a "Rising Star" in 2016 & 2017

When Mike's not busy in the courtroom, he enjoys fishing, Cardinal baseball, and spending time with his family."
