Saved my family and my life
I needed help. My freedom and family were at stake. Frank came in and believed in me and my case. He worked so hard and did everything he could to help my son and I. He was so professional and helped me to understand what was going on every step of the way. For almost two years I felt like I was his only client. I had never had to deal with lawyers or court proceedings until this. But I am so thankful that Frank was there for my family and I. Today my son and I are happy and living our lives to the fullest thanks to Frank. My family, and I, especially will be forever grateful to Frank Sellers and his team for what they did for me. Thank you Frank for believing in me and my case.

Brilliant lawyer with such a gift
We hired Frank to represent our son for a criminal offense. His verdict is not guilty! Frank did an excellent job. He is very knowledgeable about the law and is very good at examining and cross examining witnesses. He was prepared for trial everyday. He is a very caring man and helped our son feel so much better. He definitely has a gift!

BEST LAWYER AND TEAM HANDS DOWN
The search for your Lawyer should start and end here. My dad and I visited the Westfall Sellers office to meet with Frank Sellers and had no idea what to expect because I’ve simply never been in trouble and have never had the need for a lawyer. But I promise you both my dad and I knew within minutes of meeting with Frank, that he was the right fit. We didn’t feel the need to go visit with other Lawyers because we believed that Frank said enough in our first 15 minute meeting that he was the man for the job. My case was a DWI. I was arrested in May of this year and had a high blow. Over double the leagle limit. But frank assured me that he would do everything in his power to give us the best possible chance to win this case. It’s easy for someone to say that; but it’s another for them to actually put their foot down and do it, and that’s exactly what Frank and his team did. From day one until my case was found NOT GUILTY, they were with me and my family every step of the way. They are truly there to help you with any questions and to remind you to relax and leave the legal side of things up to them. My family and I could not be more grateful. This was the toughest part of my young life, but Frank and his team made sure that I would see the light at the end of the tunnel! And that’s why I’m here making sure if you need a lawyer, don’t even second guess and start right here! Thank you again Frank and the entire team at Westfall Sellers.

Charges Dismissed!
I was charged with a felony and misdemeanor on top of priors and Frank was able to get both charges dismissed. I have used two other criminal defense lawyers in Lubbock and I would definitely recommend Frank over anyone else.

Frank Sellers protected my rights from the day I hired him. I was wrongfully investigated for a crime I never commit, and Frank was very effective in the defense during the process. He literally saved my career, my reputation, my life. He is the best attorney in Texas!

Outstanding Attorney
I hired Mr. Sellers for my case in Tarrant County. I have had many charges sad to say, but Mr. Sellers took my case on and did a outstanding job at keeping me on probation. I was looking at prison time and he kept me calm and focused. He has a strong work ethic and is very focused on his clients. I am not proud of the situation I put myself in, but I am very proud to say I had Frank Sellers as my attorney.

Domestic Assault
Frank was very compassionate and understanding the first day I met him. He heard my side of the story and assured me we could win this case. With his assistant he was able to keep our family intact while getting my case dismissed. I was recommended to his firm by a close friend and he was everything advertised

Awesome lawyer! Couldn't recommend him enough!
Frank has handled several of my cases, and always came out on top. He's extremely professional, quick to action and always on top of things. Have recommended him to several family members and friends, and they agree he's a top notch lawyer.

Straight business
Greg Westfall took on my case and was straight forward with everything. He made sure he communicated with me on everything. If you need an attorney who will get it done then I highly recommend Greg Westfall

Best law firm
I just want to say that I’m so grateful with the attorney, taking my case ; his work ethic was amazing not to mention he was there through the entire process. The attorney was always finding ways to make sure I felt comfortable with everything, used multiple resources to get the message across to me from explain every detail down the road. He made sure that I had a translator at all times so I would be aware of every decision taken. Most importantly he didn’t language be a barrier for us to communicate.

Frank was great when unexpected things happen to good people and they need help. Very comfortable, straight forward and realistic but assertive and courageous. I am sure he has a large fan club out there!

Dustin Hoffman and Frank Sellers are OUTSTANDING! 5 Stars!!!
I highly recommend Dustin Hoffman at Westfall Sellers as a top-tier attorney. I received a DWI for the first time, and of course, was scared out of my mind. Dustin educated and prepared me for the process, and then walked me through every step of the way. He listened to my concerns and desired results, informed me of my options, and worked diligently to get me the outcome in which I hoped. I couldn't believe he got me an even better outcome with the prosecutors and judge than what I had imagined! My case is being dismissed! I wholeheartedly trust Dustin and his legal advice. Dustin Hoffman, Frank Sellers, and the rest of their team at Westfall Sellers eased my worried mind, provided above and beyond customer service, utmost professionalism, and most importantly, got the job done with complete satisfaction. The words in this review do not do justice to how grateful I am to have had such a strong attorney. If you have any legal issue needing defense, Dustin Hoffman is the man for the job!

Amazing legal prowess!
I am amazed and grateful at how Mr. Sellers knows what to do, how and when to do it. He makes jurors feel at ease so he can present a factual story showing the flip side of what the state would like you to believe. The facts speak volumes and Mr. Sellers is simply the conduit to deliver them in an eloquent manner.

The best defense attorney I could have asked for.
I was referred to Frank Sellers by another highly respected attorney after getting charged with DWI. Frank and his team went above and beyond to defend me and make sure I was protected, both personally and professionally, throughout this ordeal. They worked tirelessly on my defense and have always been available to answer questions promptly. If you find yourself in a similar situation I highly recommend Frank and his team.

Would hire again
Mr.Sellers and his team made me feel confident when handling my case. I live out of state now and the concerns I had; they made me feel at ease. This can be a scary time and Mr. Sellers showed compassion and patience when on calls. His team kept me informed and updated regularly and I appreciate their hard efforts in resolving the matter.

Best of the Best
I hired Frank Sellers to represent my son in a Juvenile case in which he was wrongly accused and charged with two felonies in Tarrant County. Frank worked tirelessly to prove my sons innocence on both charges that were ultimately dismissed. I would recommend Frank and his staff to anyone who needs help with similar matters.
