It is clear that Tony Lidgett cares deeply about his job. He is nice, professional, thorough, and gives honest advice. He did not rush us at our consultation, knowing we would more than likely not be able to afford to hire his team. He and his team are definitely worth the money if you’ve got it. I would recommend Mr. Lidgett to anyone.
Mr. Lidgett helped my son when no one else wanted to. He fought hard for my boy. He is very, very professional. He tells you like it is. He is a great lawyer and person. I don't know where my son would be today if Mr.Lidgett were not on his side. I highly recommend Mr. Lidgett to anyone that is in need of a lawyer willing to fight for you.

Absolutely hands down the very BEST there is. The very end of last June, I walked into his office within a few hours of myHusband calling him on the same day I learned I was being charged with two felonies and a misdemeanor, scared of what these charges exactly meant or what possibleoutcomes I could be looking at. From the very start I knew I was in the best hands possible hands. Because of Tony, I never was formally arrested, spent a penny on bail or a second in handcuffs or jail. He never over promised, he always over delivered. He and his team responded to every text within minutes,I never once felt like I didn’t know what was going on or where things currently stood, and I always felt my situation and myself were very much cared for. I will never have the right words for how much I appreciate Tony, Bob and Todd. As of today, all charges are DISMISSED. Mr.Lidgett and his team will always have my unending gratitude and respect. If you find yourself in need of good representation and an attorney with a team who goes above and beyond, I promise calling the Law office of Tony Lidgett will be the BEST decision you could make. Thank you again Tony, you are by far absolutely worth what I could purchased a used Toyota for😝 and so much more. I am forever grateful.

Mr. Lidgett is a superb attorney. My public defender was offering 7 years for an aggravated assault that was in reality was self defense. Mr. Lidgett believed in my case and fought rigorously in my defense and got my case fully dismissed. A huge weight was alleviated off my shoulders and that is priceless.

If you want an attorney that really wants to help you, go with Tony . he was recommend to me by a friend who also has hired tony and I'm so glad I listened and got him as well . I had 2 separate gun charges and 4 other felony charges and ended up after my case was over with two misdemeanor charges and court probation and he was still willing to try to get me less if i wanted to proceed . I hardly write reviews, unless they are deserved! tony and todd are awesome ! Blessed to have met them both. if I'm ever in trouble again I know who to call. These men went out of their ways to help me and make me feel safe and comfortable ! Best attorney and side kick in town !! Thank you both so much!! And god bless you . it was a pleasure
