Wood devotes his practice to the areas of construction law, banking law, education law, non-profit law, real estate transactions and representing charter schools and related businesses. He also handles complex commercial litigation, business law and business transactions, and occasionally handles adoption matters.

Wood has provided counsel and legal representation to various non-profits in the State of Florida for many years and has participated and assisted in the formation of several non-profits from their inception. His experience and understanding of both federal and state regulations provides excellent value to his clients. Wood has also conducted and administered board member governance training for non-profit compliance for Florida charter schools, adoption agencies, and other non-profits.

Wood has served as a board member of the Florida Consortium of Public Charter Schools since its inception and provides legal advice and counsel to that association, which is comprised of over 500 Florida charter schools. Notably, Wood served as a member of the charter school committee charged with drafting a model agreement for use in Florida, which became a Florida Department of Education rule in November 2014. Wood has served on the FCPCS Quality Authorizers Task Force since 2012 which helps set a cooperative legislative agenda with the authorizers and charter school leaders in Florida. Wood is a frequent presenter at various conferences on multiple non- profit issues. Wood has also been active within the Florida ice hockey community, and has served as President of the Statewide Amateur Hockey Association of Florida (SAHOF) from 2008 to present. He also serves as General Counsel to SAHOF and is a member of the SAHOF Executive Committee.
