Chad Lee & Jerry Wood, Experienced Texas Defense Attorneys
Our Texas criminal defense law firm combines the work of two attorneys, Chad Lee and Jerry Wood. Both lawyers have known each other for over a decade as professionals and friends. They are respected in the legal community and dedicated to the highest standards of ethics and professional practice.
Chad Lee is a former prosecutor and an experienced defense attorney who knows criminal law from both sides of the courtroom. He knows what prosecutors are thinking, and uses his perspective to build strong and effective defenses for his clients. Over the course of his career, Chad has handled numerous trials as a prosecutor and a criminal defense attorney. Experience has taught him that no two cases are identical, even when the charges are the same.
Jerry Wood has been practicing law for nearly 35 years. He has dedicated his entire career to criminal defense work, including taking over 100 criminal cases to trial. Jerry is familiar with the criminal procedures and courts in many areas outside of the western Fort Worth metro area, including Weatherford, Cleburne, Decatur, Graham, Mineral Wells, Granbury, Stephenville and Jacksboro.
Dedicated Exclusively to Criminal Defense
Many law firms—especially in the western Fort Worth metro—represent people in criminal cases, as well as practicing many other kinds of law. Criminal defense is only a small portion of their practices. That is not the case at Lee & Wood. Our law practice is focused exclusively on criminal defense. It’s all that we do.
Our exclusive focus means that we have built in-depth knowledge of the law. We know the criminal procedures, laws and players that can affect a criminal case. We use our knowledge to counsel our clients regarding the most effective approaches to resolving their cases. Our focus is always on achieving the best possible results.
Experience and focus allow us to handle even the most serious felonies, but we take cases of all types. We handle misdemeanors, felonies and juvenile offenses, from drunk driving offenses to violent crimes and theft offenses. We also help people explore their options in pretrial diversion programs and clear their criminal records through expunction or nondisclosure.
