Integrity, trustworthy, and wise strategy
I contacted Tom immediately when the need arose. From the very first counsel for handling the initial situation, throughout the whole process, his guidance was clear, ethical, and wise. Due to his wise counsel, the false charges brought against me were eventually completely dismissed. He not only saved my family from experiencing a difficult trial, including substantial legal fees, he also preserved my reputation from patently false accusations. I wouldn't even begin to hesitate to recommend Tom Kidd to anyone. He has my utmost respect and gratitude!

DUI case
Mr. Kidd worked around my schedule and was very accommodating. He let me know what to expect every step of the way which really helped to relieve tensions at a stressful time. I received driving privileges for work and child care during my suspension. I hope to never need his services again but would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Thomas Kidd was a fantastic help to me!
Myself and a handful of others were in a difficult legal situation having our first amendment rights violated and being charged with fabricated misdemeanor charges. Mr. Kidd was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in representing us. We were completely vindicated thanks in large part to his efforts.

Thomas Kidd is the epitome of excellence in the practice of law. He went "above and beyond" to procure justice. As a result, my case was expunged. I know I could trust Tom because he is respected by many adjudicating authorities. Most importantly, Tom Kidd is a Christian whose values are measured by the standards of Scripture. I would highly recommend Mr. Kidd to anyone who needs a legal representative, because he has the experience, respect, and the vehemence to win your case.

Defense Lawyer
A few years ago the police matched the license plate of one of my cars to the description of a jewelry theft at a nearby swimming pool. The victim claimed that the thief was a young woman. The license plate was a partial match and my son had the car that evening. But because of the partial match and the fact that we lived in the neighborhood, the police accused my daughter of the theft. The police began to harass my family and my daughter in particular. I knew my daughter could not have committed the crime because she was with me at the time of the crime and the car was with my son. I enlisted Mr. Kidd to represent my daughter and the harassment stopped immediately. I have used Mr. Kidd's legal services for other issues since then and they have always produced results beyond my expectations. I highly recommend him.

A great lawyer who does his homework.
Tom spent the time to listen and deal with several problems I was facing over the last five years. One was a civil case over money and work performance and the other was a property dispute with the state of Ohio. I was well pleased with both results because of Toms legal skills shined in the courtroom.
