Jerry L. WoodJerry_Wood_Weatherford_Criminal_Defense_Attorney

In 37 years as a criminal defense attorney I have represented clients accused of virtually every crime contained in the Texas Penal Code ranging from traffic violations and DWI’s to aggravated robbery and murder.  I have tried more than 100 DWI jury trials in more than 10 separate counties with effective results.  Every client and every case is unique and requires individual attention.  At Lee and Wood we understand that good people sometimes make bad choices. Our passion is working for a successful resolution of their particular problem.
