About Me

Terri Wood started practicing law in 1982 as a public defender in the Florida Keys. There she won her first murder trial during her first year of practice. Before becoming a lawyer, Ms. Wood worked as an award-winning journalist for the New York Times chain Florida newspapers.

She moved to Eugene, Oregon, in 1988, and soon won her first murder trial here. A few years later she defended paroled double-murderer Russell Obremski on child sex abuse charges, winning “not guilty” verdicts on all counts. Between 1992 and 1998, Ms. Wood devoted much of her practice to death penalty litigation, where she acquired extensive experience in the forensic sciences, and in police investigation and interrogation techniques.

Over the years, she has lectured on criminal defense topics at legal seminars and at the University of Oregon. Selected by fellow attorneys for demonstrated legal excellence in criminal defense, Ms. Wood is listed in The Best Lawyers in America .

Since 1998, Ms. Woods practice has focused on defending people accused of major felony crimes in federal and state courts, including many drug trafficking and conspiracy cases. She continues to successfully defend clients throughout Oregon, and remains “AV” listed in Martindale Hubble, the highest rank in this attorney peer-review rating system.

She is a member of the American Trial Lawyers Association, and continues to be ranked by her peers as an Oregon "Super Lawyer".
