The go to attorney for deense!
Brian was quick to respond to my questions, extremely knoledgeable, courteous and professional. Having been a former prosecuter, he knows what to expect from defense attorneys, district attorneys and the like. Very reasonable fees! I highly recommend him for your defense needs. Even got my charge dismissed! Above all he is honest and his integrity unquestionable!

I had a drug case in Tarrant county and contacted Brian hoellers office for representation. After talking with Lindsay truly I decided to hire them. They were hands down the best representation I've ever had. Lindsay was great to work with. Any time I needed to get a hold of her she she was available, and if she wasn't she got back to me Immediately. She helped me put my case together from the other side of the country and did an amazing job. I was looking at between two and ten years in prison, and thanks to their hard work they got me a deal that had me back home with my family in a month. It was a better outcome than I thought was possible. So many thanks to Brian and Lindsay

Bryan Hoeller is a great lawyer. I hired him to help a loved one. He is very knowledgeable on what he does and i couldn't have asked for anyone else. I love the way he personally contacted me when something new came up. He also visited my loved one in jail to discuss the case. Wonderful lawyer! I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Bryan represented me with the compassion and professionalism one expects. He was extremely thorough in communicating and explaining issues for my second DWI arrest. I received the best possible final disposition. I recommend him and would hire him again if needed.

Best Attorney
I would recommend Mr Hoeller to anyone. When I first met with him, he listened to what I had to say and was very sincere. He took my felony case with no hesitation and got right to work and was able to get my entire case dropped. If you are looking for an attorney that truly cares and will get the job done then I recommend you hire Attorney Brian Hoeller cause he's the best!

Perfect Outcome!!
When I was arrested and charged with a second degree felony, I lost all hope. Until I met with Mr. Hoeller. Now, I've had lawyers in the past and, none of them seemed to care or even show any interest in the case. Bryan, however, was genuine and professional. He CARED!! May not be that important but, when your facing up to 20 years in prison, it gives you a piece of mind knowing that your legal counsel actual cares about the outcome. Well, long story short, Bryan went to bat, with full force. And the case was dropped by the prosecution. If you need a lawyer as well as a friend you can count on Bryan Hoeller. Trust me on this. He will do any and everything in his power to make sure your properly defended. Thanks Bryan. You truly are a God Send.

Incredible Lawyer
I have never met a more professional and understanding lawyer who helped us every step of our legal process. I recommend him to everyone he is a well spoken honest man who actually cares for his clients.

One of the Best!
Attorney Bryan P. Hoeller has been an absolute blessing to our family. Unfortunately, our son got arrested on a felony charge and was put in jail. I contacted Bryan based on his resume and good standing with the State Bar of Texas. Bryan immediately met with our son, the judge, and the prosecutor. A hearing was set and our son was released on a lessor charge (no bail) within 3 days. Knowing our son was in jail for over 2 weeks waiting on a public defender to visit him, you can imagine that he was excited to finally get out. We were impressed with Bryan’s professionalism, excellent communication skills, and willingness to jump in and work with us on such short notice. There have been angels in our lives… and Bryan is one of them. We will certainly pay it forward -Thank you for making a difference in our lives!

Attorney Bryan Hoeller " A Blessing "
Attorney Bryan Hoeller was appointed to us in Tarrant County to represent our loved one, because we did not have the funds at that time to hire a lawyer, he was honest, trustworthy, and knowledgeable in all aspects of our case, and he informed us of the the worst and best case scenarios that could happen. Bryan visited our loved one to prepare the case, and kept him encouraged. Bryan kept us informed from the time that we walked into the courtroom until our loved one came out in front of the judge. After our loved one was sentenced, Bryan sympathized with us, showed us concern of our feelings, stayed with us, consoled us, until we were able to drive home. Our case was an organized crime case, where our loved one was facing 7 to 20 years in prison, Attorney Bryan Hoeller had it reduced to 5 years and with the back time accumulated, our loved one would do a fourth of the 5 years. After Attorney Hoeller represented him with the prison time, we hired Bryan to represent us with other charges that he was facing. Our loved one, also had charges in two other counties, he had one that was a misdemeanor, that he was on probation for , Bryan had it dismissed completely, and the other county was going to bench warrant our loved one back, and Bryan had that resolved, and the warrant was removed. Bryan has communicated with us in every process, through everything that he has done, and made sure that we understood all of the legal processes. I feel that we have actually became friends. Attorney Bryan Hoeller has truly been a blessing to our loved one and our family. I will recommend Attorney Bryan Hoeller to anyone that is facing trials and tribulations in their family, if they are looking for an honest, fair and sincere lawyer. I feel that Bryan Hoeller is a blessing to us from God. I would highly recommend him, if you are looking for someone who is honest, will help you to the best of his ability, and will be dedicated to your situation. May God continue to Bless you, Bryan.

Look no further!!
Mr. Hoeller is a consummate professional! He took the time to listen to me, communicated promptly with me throughout the entire process, and ultimately went above and beyond to get the best result possible. He also took the time to answer all of my questions(and I had many), and made sure I understood what to expect the entire time. I cannot recommend him highly enough!
