Alex Woodyard, Attorney at Law
Alex Woodyard was born in Charlotte, North Carolina but raised in Union County. Interestingly enough, Mr. Woodyard’s first time visiting a law office was as a former client of William Goldfarb’s in a personal injury matter back in 2000. Alex was so impressed with Mr. Goldfarb’s skills as a lawyer and his passion for helping his clients that he sought employment as an Associate Attorney with Mr. Goldfarb upon his admission to the North Carolina State Bar.
Alex graduated Magna Cum Laude from the North Carolina Central University School of Law where he graduated in the top 10% of his class and received scholarships for his outstanding academic achievements. While in law school, Mr. Woodyard served as an Executive Officer for the law school’s Trial Advocacy Board, and was a member and trial team competitor for the American Association for Justice Trial Team.
Before law school, Alex graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a degree in criminal justice and a minor in biology. Alex was a member of the National Honor Society, and a Student Justice on the Student Government Judicial Board. During his undergraduate studies, Alex obtained an EMT certification. His biology and EMT background, in conjunction with his outstanding performance in law school, and wide range of experience are excellent ingredients for an associate in the realm of civil litigation.
Like Mr. Goldfarb, Alex is a trial lawyer. Alex has gained experience litigating cases involving civil rights violations, medical malpractice, injured workers, personal injury, Social Security Disability, landlord-tenant disputes, contract disputes, family law disputes, and criminal defense and prosecution. Mr. Woodyard has successfully tried many cases throughout NC courts.
Mr. Woodyard’s familiarity with the law and personal injury can be traced back to his experiences with his family. Alex comes from a family of attorneys and healthcare professionals. His desire to represent injured plaintiffs stems from his personal experiences with his father. A victim of physician carelessness, Alex’s father is now permanently confined to a wheelchair. Alex and his family learned first-hand, from the plaintiffs’ perspective, the difficulties faced when dealing with insurance companies and the court system. This experience left a burning desire in Alex to help the injured, which ultimately led him to pursue a career doing injured plaintiffs’ work.
Alex is happily married to his beautiful wife, Susan Castillo Woodyard. Together they have two dogs, Buddy and Bailey. Alex is an avid weightlifter. Both he and Susan thoroughly enjoy spending their free-time working out and participating in other sporting events. Alex began taking martial arts at the age of six, and taught Tae Kwon Do as a martial arts instructor in Charlotte, NC for six years. Alex believes in remaining goal oriented, and maintaining a healthy life style. He is proud to serve his community and friends.
