Frank Woodson joined our firm in 2001. He was a former partner in the general litigation firm of Turner, Onderdonk, Kimbrough & Howell in Mobile, Ala., where his practice focused on litigation, both Plaintiff and Defense. Since coming with us, Frank’s practice has focused on Mass Torts related to pharmaceuticals. His primary efforts have been on behalf of clients who suffer from severe injury to their shoulder joint as a result of the use of a pain pump after shoulder surgery. Frank is working with lawyers in Oregon who discovered the problems with these pain pumps.
Frank was also very active in the Vioxx litigation. Beginning in 2005, he served as the Vice Chairman of the sales and marketing committee for the Vioxx MDL in New Orleans. Frank participated in several of our firm’s Vioxx trials. He led a team of lawyers who prepared video deposition cuts for several Vioxx trials as well as other aspects of a Vioxx MDL trial package.
Frank has handled several cases that were not classified as mass torts. He is investigating claims involving drugs that cause Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS), having successfully resolved claims for two clients who were blinded by SJS. In late 2008, he worked to resolve a claim for a child who required a liver transplant after ingestion of an antibiotic and in 2009 resolved the claim of a family of another child who died from liver failure after ingestion of an antibiotic.
Frank currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Alabama Association for Justice. He also serves on the board for St. James School. Frank is married to the former Marti Glaze of Tuscaloosa, Ala., and they have four children. They are active members of Frazer United Methodist Church, where Frank serves on the Board of Stewards. He also is a member of the Harbor Light Sunday School class and serves as an usher in the contemporary service. Frank, a very good lawyer, fights very hard for his clients. He is very well-respected in the Mass Torts arena. We are fortunate to have him with the firm.
