I retained Mr. Tyson this past spring to defend me on a criminal mischief charge. After reviewing my case, Mr. Tyson explained the legal process to me and what he would be doing. He also provided me up-to-date statistics on his trial and dismissal records. They were excellent. I told him that my goal was to have the charge completely dismissed. He assured me that there was no need to take any kind of deal with my case because outright dismissal should be doable. In order to do that, he explained, we may have to keep going to court until we got the desired outcome but that this was all included in the retainer -- the only additional cost would be if the case had to be tried.
He did explain to me that there was a possibility the case would have to be tried if he couldn't get the prosecutor to drop the case otherwise and that this would be an additional expense. "Some cases just have to be tried." That being said, I was confident that had the case gone to trial, Mr. Tyson would have provided the best representation available to me. Now I am working with him to have this charge expunged from my record.
All in all I would recommend you at least have your case reviewed by Mr. Tyson.
This is an amazing person and a GREAT attorney. I have known George for a while. He helped me get a bogus DWI case dismissed. I would recommend this attorney to anyone who has criminal charges.
I had a brush with the law a few months ago while visiting Houston and was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol. It was a pretty terrible experience, as I knew very little about the city. I called a few attorneys and spoke with them - all of them seemed competent and promising - however, after speaking with Mr. Tyson I felt like "this is who I need to use if I really want the NO BS, take care of this now kind of dwi attorney." (As an out of state guy, the DIVERT programs, etc., where not an option that locals have, so - and it probably really wan't like this - but I felt like it was all or nothing.)
Mr. Tyson was able to get the case dismissed before going to trial based on a lack of evidence. I can't thank you enough for all of your help! Truly an excellent defense attorney.
IF I EVER HAD TO HIRE A CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER AGAIN, HOPE TO GOD, I WOULD HIRE MR. TYSON ANYWHERE IN TEXAS. I CANNOT IMAGINE A MORE COMPASIONATE, CARING AND COMPETENT LAWYER.
We hired Mr. Tyson to defend our son. He gave us a clear explanation of what we could expect of the legal system and kept us informed during each step of the process. Mr. Tyson answered all of our questions clearly and concisely and gave us excellent advice regarding our sonâ€™s case. During the course of the case, we learned that he is well respected in the Texas legal/judicial community. It is our feeling that the outcome of our sonâ€™s case would not have been as fortuitous with a less knowledgeable attorney.
I had an altercation with a subcontractor when I was building a house. The short of the matter was George Tyson helped me stay out of a court situation by giving me good sound advise and coaching me as to what to say to the law enforcement personel who were investigating the case. He difinately kept me out of trouble and saved me alot of time, money, and grief! Glad he was around! I definately will use him again if the need arises.
