John Walker Wood is actively licensed to practice law in Washington State and Tennessee. To the extent that a legal matter requires the actual practice of law in another state, the Wood Law Firm complies with all rules, including, as an example, the association with local counsel who is licensed to practice in the other state and the division of any attorney's fee with the local counsel at no increase in total attorney's fee charged to the client. This website does not mean to suggest that John Walker Wood is actively licensed to practice law in any state other than Washington State and Tennessee.

The Supreme Court of Washington does not recognize certification of specialties in the practice of law. Being named one of Seattle's 2010 "Top Lawyers" in Labor and Employment Law by Seattle Metropolitan Magazine and a 2006 Mid-South "Super Lawyer" in the field of Employee Benefits by Law & Politics Magazine are certainly not required to practice law in Washington State or Tennessee in general or in those areas of law in particular.
