On company values: A word from the boss
Hi, I’m Neil Woods. Someone once told me they “don’t want to work at a stuffy old law firm.” Everyone has heard at least one horror story about working for lawyers. They’re moody, rude, greedy, yell at their staff, and worse.
Not at my law firm. When you walk through my law firm you’ll see the staff smiling. I genuinely think we have made work about as much fun as you can (while still getting lots accomplished!). We all spend way too much time at work to hate our jobs.
You probably imagine a law firm of lawyers in suits. Nope. I have never worn a suit to work and you won’t have to either. Woods and Woods has a very laid-back atmosphere. We wear jeans and T-shirts. More people at my office wear a Snuggie at their desk than a suit. I’m not necessarily proud of the Snuggie wearing, but it’s true.
Our entire staff is dedicated to serving disabled veterans who are fighting the VA for benefits. This isn’t a job where you just push papers around–you get to change people’s lives. Fighting for those that served our country means you can have a meaningful career.
I understand why you come to work every day: to support your family. Woods and Woods is extremely family-friendly. As you’ll see below in the perks section, I try to give my staff a lot of flexibility with their schedules and lots of vacation days. Some positions even have four-day work weeks – seriously! I encourage my staff to travel, schedule week-long vacations, and go experience life. We do not exist just to go to work.
My absolute favorite perk? An all-expense paid vacation to Hawaii every five years for every employee and one person of their choice. This perk isn’t reserved for top-level executives. This perk is given to everyone including my receptionists, cleaning staff, administrative assistants, you name it–everyone from the CEO to the janitor is important. Why a free trip to Hawaii, you ask? Because it’s something most people would never do for themselves if I just handed them another bonus check.
If you’re a happy and hardworking, person I fully encourage you to apply for a job at my law firm. I promise you will be treated with nothing but respect. There’s a reason why so many of my staff members have stuck around for ten, fifteen, and even twenty years. If your current boss is disrespectful, if your current job is unfulfilling, if you’re unhappy with your career, I can offer you something different.
Come join my team of more than 100 awesome people.

- No weekends required: You will never be required to work on the weekends, so go do something new. Try kayaking instead. Maybe read a good book. Your weekend, your choice!

The Fun Committee
Yes, you read that right. The Fun Committee at Woods and Woods is responsible for, well, making fun. They run activities like field day at the office, Christmas parties, winery trips on coach buses, birthday parties, family day at an Otter’s baseball game, family night at Bob Walther’s Golf n’ Fun, office Bingo, and many other fun events. These activities help you get to know your co-workers and their families… and let off a little steam every once in a while!
The Old Jail in downtown Evansville
You’re probably wondering, how is the office building a perk? When you visit us you’ll understand. The Old Jail is a historic building in downtown Evansville and it’s a really unique place to work. Our staff members love walking to Main Street for lunch. If the weather is nice, you can stroll along the riverfront or bike down the Greenway. You can also easily head over the YMCA downtown during your lunch break.
Our hiring process
Step one: Telephone interview and pre-employment testing
The first step in our hiring process is a screening interview with our HR director to discuss your employment history and career goals. Our clients are nationwide, so it’s important to have good phone communication skills.
During this phase, you may be asked to complete some basic online testing to make sure you’re a fit for the job. We consider your proficiency with typing, written communication, and logical reasoning, as well as your personality profile.
Step two: On-site interview and paid job preview
After phase one, we will schedule an interview in person with our HR team and the hiring manager to further discuss your qualifications and fit for the job. We’ll discuss what you can expect from the job and give you the opportunity to ask questions about working at the firm.
You’ll also get an opportunity to shadow someone currently working in the position you have applied for. We know your time is valuable, so you will be paid for completing the job preview.
Step three: Past employment verification
We will reach out to your former employers and check your employment dates. It would be helpful if you included their phone numbers on your resume.
Step four: Job offer
If you reach this step, congratulations! You have a new career that you’re going to love. I promise that my family and staff will treat you well.
