  • Mark W. Bennett

    Tyrone Moncriffe is among the very best criminal defense lawyers in Texas. We tried a murder case together last year (representing codefendants) for a very satisfactory resolution to both our clients. When I am going to trial on a major felony case, there's nobody I'd rather have sitting at the counsel table with me than Tyrone Moncriffe.

  • Matthew Allen Skillern

    Tyrone is one of the best. He is a go-to lawyer and a fixture down at the criminal courthouse. I have seen Tyrone in action, in court and lecturing. He is phenomenal. I strongly endorse this lawyer.
