When I found myself in need of a lawyer, I was referred to Jerry Tidwell. I am grateful for his help and expertise.

After deciding to take my case to jury trial, the DA decided to make a deal, and anything related to alcohol was dropped from my charges. After successful probation, I will have nothing in regards to a DUI/DWI on my record. AND I don’t have to go to trial after! A huge Relief!
