– Our History –

In 1971, Arthur V. Woodward, Esq. founded the first law firm on Marco Island, Florida which emphasized the importance of a superior work ethic, collegiality and respect among our peers, and a social conscience that commands participation in opportunities for the good of the public. These guiding principles formed the tradition of excellence that the attorneys and staff at WPL work hard to uphold today.
