About Brian

Learn Brian’s areas of practice.

Whether it is a DWI or a Murder, Narcotics or Shoplifting, Family Violence, Child Abuse, or Robbery, State or Federal Court, my clients have a criminal lawyer of the highest standards of the profession, a BOARD CERTIFIED Criminal Law specialist. I was a high level prosecutor for a decade before dedicating myself to protecting the freedom and welfare of individuals which gives me an insider's understanding of the criminal justice system. I seek the best outcome possible for my clients in all types of criminal cases, but I WILL NEVER mislead you about your case or tell you what you want to hear to get your money. You deserve honesty above all.

Very few criminal lawyers during my nearly 20-year career have tried the vast number and types of criminal cases that I have tried with nearly 200 jury trials, let alone had my level of success in getting Not Guilties, Dismissals, or, where appropriate, favorable plea deals in all manner of criminal cases. Even fewer have tried 18 murder cases. Put this experience to work for you. Check out my reviews and learn what it is like to have me as your advocate.

Stop Looking, Call Brian TODAY
I was charged and tried for aggravated sexual assault of my 4 yr old daughter in Rockwall County. My first lawyer told me my life was ruined. Then I retained Brian! I gave him emails and texts from my daughters mom, which I thought showed she was behind all the accusations and charges. Brian took that knowledge and then scrutinized the ex's statements and counselor reports. Every witness the state brought, Brian SHOWED how the information was tainted. I sat in amazement as he dismantled the state's case. NOT by trickery! BUT by facts that he had uncovered in his preparation! To say I owe my life to Brian is an understatement! But of coarse I'm biased. BUT 12 jurors of Rockwall County are not! AND Brian convinced ALL 12 that I was NOT Guilty! In Rockwall County with a child testifying that's unheard of! I owe Brain a debt that money can't buy! But my life is a testimony to job Brian did!

Thank you, Chad. The case never made sense from the beginning. I am glad the jury saw the truth. You are now a free man!

Best criminal attorney ever
There is no way to thank Brian for the job he did for my son. The hard work and dedication he put in (almost 4 years) really paid off. Brian was able to tear apart the prosecution's case and get a not guilty verdict. If you need a great criminal defense attorney, Brian Corrigan is the best!
Response from Brian Corrigan November 16, 2017
Thank you, Jeff. It was an honor to defend your son and represent your family. I believed in your son's innocence from the beginning. I wish it didn't take 4 years, but thank God the jury did the right thing after all this time!

Hire Brian C
Please hire Brian C. For many reasons, but most importantly - he will work with you to ensure that you get the best possible legal outcome along with working on changing your life to make sure what ever happened doesn’t happen again. This means, you need to work with him as well and on your self. You do that, he will ensure the results are met. I got into legal trouble, but end of the day - there is no complaint filed, and records are expunged. This is the best outcome one can expect. I didn’t have to appear in court even once. Thanks to Brian.

An Impeccable, Irreplaceable Advisor
If you are reading this it means you were probably having the worst day of your life. But now that you've found Brian that's all about to change. I don't know about you, but when I hear the word "attorney" it never used to bring up happy thoughts. After hiring Brian to represent me and getting the best possible outcome, now I smile and feel immense gratitude whenever I hear someone way "lawyer" or "Brian." Do whatever it takes to get Brian to agree to represent you. Listen to every word he says, and do everything he asks of you. Don't bother second guessing him. He knows these streets like the back of his hand so let him drive and watch your life go from bad to better to best possible life. He is such an impeccable, intelligent, dependable, trustworthy, empathetic and forgiving person. I really can't think of a better person to have by your side, no matter what challenges you are facing right now.

Hire Brian Corrigan!
I highly recommend Brian Corrigan! Our 17 year old son was arrested for manufacturing and delivery of weed on a Thursday evening in December around 9:30 PM. My husband and I went home numb and shocked by the events that had just taken place. I never expected to be in the position of having to watch an officer arrest and take my son away. We were immediately referred to Brian Corrigan and were able to secure an appointment with him the following day around 1:00 pm. We had no idea how to get our son out of this mess! Brian put our fears to rest and told us what to expect - worst/best case scenarios. Our son’s outcome was better than the best case scenario as his charges were dropped in time to have a great Mother’s Day! Our son joined a gym, got in shape, found a job, has a beautiful girlfriend and is enjoying his senior year in high school. Brian was there when we needed him most and we are so glad we chose him! Call Brian! You will be glad you did!

Outstanding Representation
Brian and his team are beyond extraordinary. My husband and I was charged with a felony (Injury to a child, from spanking our 13yr old daughter), and a CPS case without a proper investigation. Brian and his team work day and night on our case. They kept us updated throughout the entire process on what to expect. Thanks to God, Brian and his team we won both cases. With their experience and expertise justice was served. Every call we made, every question we had, every appearance we may virtually or in court Brian and his team was there to represent us. They have become more than just our team of lawyers they have become our family. If you need a criminal lawyer or a Family Court lawyer please make them your 1st choice. They know the law and made strategic decisions throughout the case. If I had to rate them on a scale from 1 to 5, with 5 being highly satisfied. I would rate them a 10. They definitely went over and beyond the call of duty during COVID-19. They are truly a Blessing.

Review for Brian Corrigan
From our initial meeting, Brian was clear, concise, and candid. For those of us not familiar with the law, he patiently articulated the details of my case in terms of the prosecution bearing the burden of proof. Knowledgeable not only because of meticulous attention to detail and extensive research, Brian began his career as DA; in other words, he's able to think like the prosecution, which is critical to crafting an effective defense. Accessible communication and prompt feedback characterize Brian's professional demeanor, in addition to a diligent work ethic. Most importantly, Brian is determined to fight for justice, truly embodying the most seminal tenant of due process: innocent until proven guilty. Oftentimes this notion seems like mere lip service for criminal defense. However, Brian Corrigan is empirical evidence that both de facto and de jure justice still endure in our legal system.

Brian Corriagan: Unrelenting, Compassionate and Successful
Attorney, Brian Corrigan has your back and you can count on him through thick or thin. I was at one of the lowest times of my life, and at that point, Brian's confidence and calm demeanor uplifted me up personally and spiritually. The gravity of situation was addressed with genuine care and the utmost professionalism. He never gave up and the result was an unexpected blessing. I am now honored to have my attorney also as my friend.

Assault case
I am just a normal person who has a job and family. I never dreamed I would have to hire an attorney for being assaulted in my own backyard. Brian was very professional, prompt and discussed the case in language that I could understand. He presented the case to the D.A. office and the case was dismissed. He was familiar with the D.A. and the court rulings. Awesome job Brian. Thank you!

Great Lawyer!
Brian helped me through what has been by far the most challenging time in my life. He was extremely responsive, had great follow through. He did everything he said he was going to do when he said he would do it. He was the complete opposite of my first lawyer I fired who was full of BS and only told me what I wanted to hear. Brian is straight forward, and will tell you how it is, not just want you want to hear which I found to be critical. I also really liked that I dealt with him directly on everything, never passed off to someone else or an assistant. He really knows his stuff and he to always made time to talk me through things, answer my questions and inform me of all options and things to think about or do which helped ease my mind. Whenever talking to him I always felt as if I was his most important client and never rushed. I have nothing but great things to say about Brian and would never consider using anyone else. If you need great representation, stop searching and call Brian.

Brian Corrigan
Brian Corrigan is professional, experienced and compassionate. Mr. Corrigan’s knowledge is worth any amount that he could have charged. However, his fee was more than reasonable. He explained every step and made me comfortable through a very difficult process.
