  • Wesley Thomas Bray

    I endorse this lawyer. Ms. Lyons is an experienced and seasoned criminal defense attorney. She has handled a wide rage of serious felony cases with sometimes less than desirable charges and reached great results. As a former member of the PD's Office, her appointed clients rarely appreciated the hard work and time invested by Ms. Lyons as the reviews reflect. Ms. Lyons experience will serve you well.
