Daniel S. Woodrum is an attorney with Prior, Daniel & Wiltshire who proudly represents persons and businesses throughout the state of Georgia and the southeastern United States. He has focused his practice on helping clients, big and small, address the many personal and professional challenges which life presents. With his experience and training, Daniel is able to guide clients to effectively avoid hazards and efficiently resolve problems when they do arise.
Daniel is a native of the town of Millen in Jenkins County, Georgia. As a third generation attorney raised on the family’s farm, he became familiar with the law and hard work at a young age. His willingness to commit focus and effort to his personal growth and education led him to graduate first in his class from Bulloch Academy in Statesboro, Georgia while being a two-sport athlete. A lifelong “Dawg”, Daniel was thrilled to be accepted to the University of Georgia. Daniel went on to focus his studies in Athens on business. Daniel graduated with honors from the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business receiving a Bachelor’s of Business Administration in Marketing. After graduating from college, Daniel attended the University Of Georgia School Of Law and earned a Juris Doctorate.
Following the completion of his undergraduate degree, Daniel entered the University of Georgia’s School of Law. While in law school, he sought out opportunities to prepare himself for the practice of law. Knowing he wanted to center his practice on serving the needs of clients, he studied a set of subjects aimed to develop knowledge and skills to use in practice. The focus of his coursework made him adept at navigating the practice and procedure of the courts of the State of Georgia and the courts of the United States of America. He also familiarized himself with the functions of both state and federal bodies.
By adding a Juris Doctor from the University of Georgia’s School of Law to his University of Georgia Bachelor’s of Business Administration, Daniel became a “Double Dawg.”
After graduating law school, Daniel had the great privilege of being mentored by one of the top trial attorneys in the State. Being mentored by a great attorney allowed Daniel to immediately study and develop the skills necessary to be a truly effective attorney. Daniel has gone on to use those skills to effectively represent clients in every level of trial court in the State of Georgia as well as federal Court.
While representing individuals and businesses in private practice, Daniel was also called to duty to serve his hometown. He was honored to serve as the Solicitor for the City of Millen, Georgia, and performed prosecutorial duties for the City until he joined Prior, Daniel, & Wiltshire in 2014.
Since joining Prior, Daniel & Wiltshire, Daniel has served as a key member of the firm representing many of the firm’s individual and business clients.
In his time away from the office, Daniel enjoys being active with his hands and feet. On a weekend or holiday, it would not be unusual to find him tending to his family’s farm. When the farm labor is done, Daniel turns to woodworking and other “hands-on” projects. Daniel also enjoys tennis, basketball, and running. He has run in the Peachtree Road Race for the previous six years.
