Mr. Wood was born and raised in hot and sunny Merced, California, in the San Joaquin Valley. As a youth Mr. Wood could be found at the 23rd Street Pool every summer or riding his bike along Bear Creek. Mr. Wood was an avid basketball player and claim he could have gone pro if he had not stopped growing when he was 16 years old. After three ankle injuries and knee surgery to replace an ACL Mr. Wood’s basketball career is over. Mr. Wood’s first job was taking out the trash and mowing his parents’ lawn each week among other chores around the house. His first job outside of home was as a paperboy for the Merced Sunstar. Mr. Wood then had the honor of working for minimum wage ($4.25 an hour at that time) as dishwasher at Happy Steak, a local buffet and steakhouse in Merced while he attended Merced High School. Mr. Wood has also been employed as a line cook, barista at Starbucks, executive assistant, package handler for UPS, accounts payable receivable clerk and a law clerk. Today, you may find Mr. Wood still riding his bike or hiking all around the Bay Area.

Mr. Wood’s experience includes managing the San Francisco and San Jose offices of one of the largest consumer bankruptcy law firms in the United States. Mr. Wood then served as the Staff Counsel for David Burchard, the Chapter 13 Trustee for the Santa Rosa and San Francisco Divisions of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California. As Staff Counsel for Mr. Burchard, Mr. Wood administered Section 341 meeting of the creditors, confirmation hearings and litigated abuses of the bankruptcy process. There are few consumer bankruptcy lawyers in Union City or the Bay Area with this experience. Mr. Wood also has experience with collection lawsuits, preference defense, reclamation claims and adversary proceedings.
