I am glad someone finally caught up with her!! I believe that her husband Stephen Woods also knew she was doing this and probably participated until they got in too deep. It is my opinion that the whole lost it at sea is a hoax, for the insurance money if they had any? If not just so that he would not be involved with the situation. Leaving Deborah to carry the weight. Which is nothing new for him.

I was so sad to read of what happened to Debbie Woods. In my darkest days as a domestic violence survivor, Stephen and Debbie helped me get my life back by being my voice in court. I will never forget the kindness of this family and the amount of pain Debbie must feel at the loss of her husband who was a wonderful man. I did not have a lot of money, but they helped me and my children just the same. I felt that they cared so much about my situation at a time when I had little support. I will hold this family and Deborah in my prayers every day.

What goes around comes around, karma wise.
Atty. Stephen Woods was crooked and got away with it. He stole thousands of dollars ( in interest accrued ) from my mothers account, which was held up in probate for years. Apparently, he married his ilk.

While Stephen Woods represented me, Debbie was always rude on the telephone. Neither one returned phone calls and it was a chasing game to try to find them to return a call. Once, it affcted my court case as Stephen did not bother to get information from me before a hearing and it affected my case poorly. the whole boating "accident"??? I personally think Steve Woods was tossed oveboard, and that's why it was not reported for 5 days. Better chance of not finding him at that point. I always thought the boating thing was very odd. Too many loopholes.
