I was arrested for a misdemeanour Operating while Intoxicated and he was able to have it reduced to Operating While Impaired. He listened and was faithful to the information I gave him, he answered all my Qurstions and advised me. It was obvious that the Judge respected him. What he informed me as what to expect was factual. I felt he was very direct yet empathised with my concerns. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Mr. Lykins is a very experience and skilled attorney along with his entire team. Unfortunately, I do not make a lot of money working Non-Profit, but Mr. Lykins worked with me and set up a very reasonable payment plan. He informed me of the entire process and what would happen along with my options. He was very proactive in the case as well and had my best interest at heart. Mr. Lykins made me feel very comfortable during this entire process and he had my back. Obviously, I made a mistake in life , but that does not make me a bad person. I would very highly recommend Mr. Lykin if you want a great attorney and great team in your corner helping you. He was very professional and was easy to communicate with him whether calling office, cell or even TEXTING him. You knew what to expect before walking into the court room and what was going on. If I ever need an attorney again I'd hire him and his team. Mr. Lykins is not to be taken lightly he knows his material and laws. If you want a great defense, attorney who is there for you with your best interest at heart he and his team are the one to hire. Affordable with great results. Even if his price was higher than another attorney I'd pay the difference because I know he the rest of the West Michigan Defense Team are worth the results. They are very courteous, empathetic, honest, straight forward, and care about their clients.

I was refered to Mr. Lykins. I was told he was the best, and they were right. Mr Lykins is very knowledgeable. He is upfront, and explained the whole court proess. Told us the options, and what he wanted to do. He kept me updated the whole time. In my opion he went above and beyond. He worked very hard and many hours to save my family and my son's future. I can't thank him enough. There is no one better than Mr. Lykins. I thank him again for not only saving my famly, but saving my son's future. Thank You.

The very first consultation I had with Mr. Lykins , he explained how the court system worked, all my options, and all possible outcomes. He was very understanding, but also very clear about his concerns regarding my case and what I needed to do next step by step. I received 3 different charges: DUI, possession of Marijuana, and open container. I was looking at possible 93 days in jail and many other consequences. Jerry made a deal with the prosecutor that they would drop the drug and open container charges and settle with only the OWI. I was extremely satisfied with the outcome. If it wasn’t for Jerry I would be sitting in jail today. I would defiantly turn to Jerry or recommend his wisdom to anyone.
Also, I have had many friends applaud Jerry, and recommend him as a lawyer. Every single friend said the same thing. He is intelligent, kind, and he will do his best to help out someone in need.

I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer than Jerry to handle my case. Anytime I had questions or concerns he was there to help. The duration of my entire court process was extremely stressful for me because I had never been in trouble with the law before but Jerry was always there to boost my spirits up and reduce my anxiety level. What makes Jerry a superb attorney is not only his excellent understanding of the law and vast experience with the law but he is also one of the best and most caring individuals I've ever met - Jerry is way more than just a Lawyer. I highly recommend Gerald R. Lykins to anyone in need.

I called Jerry the day after I was charged with possession of marijuana. Right away he put me in the right direction and guided me through the whole process, he knows what he is doing, and he does it well. Jerry ended up talking to the prosecutor and the judge on my second court date, and ended up getting my case dropped down to a traffic ticket. I would recommend Jerry to anyone that needs legal help he exceeded my expectations!

Gerald Lykins and his team defended me after a recent DUI arrest. From the beginning he cared about my case and the best defense and result possible for me. He worked hard on my behalf, always communicating to me what was going on and how best to move forward. We worked out a plea that was fair, and I appreciate his advice on this case and on how to live going forward so I wouldn't be in this position again. I definitely recommend Gerald and his team to others who find themselves in the same position I was in.

Jerry was extremely professional and straight to the point. He told you exactly the steps that needed to be followed and guided you through all options available to help you along the way. I had lost my restricted license with Interlock for over a year. You only get to appeal for a license once a year. I recommend you have a lawyer present for that. You may think you have all your "ducks in a row" but without a lawyer you risk losing your one chance. Jerry instructed me on what needed to be accomplished to receive my restricted license back and following his lead... I got it. He is extremely skilled at what he does. I will be calling him again a year from now in the hopes of getting my full drivers license back. YOU ONLY GET ONE SHOT! Thank you Jerry.

I found Jerry Lykins on this website and called him shortly thereafter to see if he could help me. I had been arrested by the police and charged with drunk driving, possession of marijuana and open alcohol. Jerry immediately answered my call and made me feel that he not only understood the law but he would actually would care about me as a person. I trusted Jerry and hired him after meeting him in person. Jerry completely lived upon to all my expectations and more! He got the drunk driving case changed to Impaired driving and both the other charges dropped. Then at my plea and sentencing date he was able to convince the judge not to put me in jail even though the judge told us he wanted to because I had 5 prior misdemeanor cases. I am cannot tell you how happy I was to have someone like Jerry handle my case. I will refer Jerry to all my friends and anyone I ever meet who might have a case. Do not hesitate to call Jerry he is the best!

I am an attorney with over 20 years of experience. A close friend was charged with high blood alcohol level ("Super Drunk"). She hired an attorney that made several attempts to explain the mitigating circumstances, but failed to get the prosecutor to change his position. He recommended that she take the very poor offer. When she told me the story, I immediately called Jerry to get his opinion.
I reached out to Jerry and he immediately saw some issues and facts that justified mitigation. Within a week, Jerry presented his position to the prosecutor. The result, the prosecutor offered a reduced charge and very reasonable penalties. Needless to say, she took it.
What is impossible for some attorneys is within reach for Jerry. I definitely recommend him for any aspect or level of criminal defense work and will continue to refer clients and friends to him.
