Suffering a serious injury or losing a loved one can be a tragic time for you and your family. Don’t be surprised when personal injury law firms try their hardest to represent you during this time. Sometimes, attorneys catch wind of your situation and try to contact you just hours after the incident occured. As quick as they may be, it doesn’t mean that they’re the right lawyer for you.

Given your situation, I know that you’re probably in talks with several attorneys in an attempt to find which one is best for your case. I absolutely encourage you to research and shop around because there’s nothing like having confidence in the attorney you hire. That said, the information you find here will help inform you of myself — Aaron Woods — and my firm,  Woods Law KC. I hope the information you find helps you make the right decision.

My Philosophy

There are seven core values I believe in that shape what I do as an attorney and how I represent you:

  1. I believe in the American civil justice system, including the right to trial by jury.
  2. I believe that by holding wrongdoers accountable we can help make our roadways, our products, and our medical care safer for everyone.
  3. I believe that regular people are entitled to justice every bit as much as corporations, insurance companies, and doctors.
  4. I believe that the contingency-fee system is the only means of allowing regular people the necessary access to the court system.
  5. I believe everyone should have the right to have their disputes resolved by a jury if they are unable to resolve them outside of court.
  6. I believe you should be represented by a lawyer that you are comfortable with and who genuinely cares about you as a person.
  7. I believe that everyone who has been injured or lost a loved one because of the wrongdoing of another is entitled to aggressive, ethical, and compassionate representation.

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; defend the rights of all those who have nothing. Proverbs 31:8 (NCV)


Trial Lawyer, Appellate Attorney

As a trial lawyer, I have successfully represented clients against some of the largest corporations in the country. My practice has resulted in significant recoveries against well-known companies like The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, American Family Insurance, The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company, State Farm Insurance companies, General Motors, Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, and more.

I’m also an experienced appellate advocate, and I have handled appeals in the Supreme Courts and the Courts of Appeal in Missouri and Kansas. I have also appeared in appeals in the U.S. Courts of Appeal for the Second and Tenth Circuits.
