3 Dismissals of 5 charges
Tristan is 100% the best!. I experienced first hand others with identical charges getting crapped on by the courts. I had spent nearly 40 days in Harris County, kept getting charge after charge. He kept me from having to stay in jail longer than I should of, got 3 dismissals and always, always set realistic expectations - His integrity is impecable. He does not sugar coat it or set false hope. If he says something about your case believe him. Tristan LeGrande is my attorney for life. I can see from a mile away Tristan was made to be a criminal defense attorney. I felt he owned my case as if the charges were his own. I am very thankful to of had such a great attorney.

Efficient, Effective, and Exceptional.
Tristan provided a very clear outline of the process and his experience in the field showed as he was able to provide an accurate timeline and contact at every step of the process. From my end I had an easy phone call to set up a single meeting. From there he took care of the rest. Takes time to answer questions and really made me comfortable. I appreciate his work and highly recommend he be your first call.

Diligence and success
Tristan assisted me with a very strenuous case. He communicated and instructed every step of the way. The case went all the way up to 4 days before trial and it was dismissed. The court knew with the confidence and information Tristan provided throughout the pretrial they would not win. If you would like to win, hire Tristan! Thanks again bud!

My hero
I had TWO charges that were completely unjustified but could’ve seriously impacted my life!! Not ONLY did this man put up with my anxiety, thinking I knew what was best and not making things easy on him. I was worried for a second he might drop me. Want to know what this man Tristan did (I’m getting goose bumps) got them BOTH dismissed!!! I left an attorney charging me twice as much for not even CLOSE to what Tristan did for me! I truly wish I was rich enough to tip him BIG but I’m not so this review will have to suffice. Thanks again buddy, your the man!!!

Got felony charges dismissed
I wanted to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude to my lawyer, Tristan Legrande, for his unwavering support and exceptional legal representation throughout my case. I hired Mr Tristan for my felony charges (Money Laundering and Money Service Violation) and from the very first meeting, I knew I was in good hands. He was knowledgeable, compassionate, and reassuring, always taking the time to explain the legal process and my options. He fought tirelessly for my rights and worked tirelessly to get the best possible outcome for my case. Thanks to his hard work and dedication, I was able to secure a favorable plea deal that got my case dismissed, which has allowed me to put this difficult chapter behind me and move forward with my life. Tristan went above and beyond his duties as my lawyer. He was always available to answer my questions and provide guidance, no matter how busy his schedule was. He was always professional, respectful, and treated me with dignity and understanding. I cannot express enough how grateful I am to have had Tristan on my side throughout this difficult time. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal representation, as his expertise, dedication, and unwavering commitment to his clients is unmatched. Thank you, Tristan, for everything. Your hard work and dedication will always be remembered and appreciated.

Excellent Attorney
When I got my dwi my whole world collapsed in, but Tristan walked me through what would and could happen with his expert knowledge. When I was scared that I was going to lose my career because of the charge Tristan was still there walking me through reminding me to take everything one day at a time. When the time came and my case was resolved, Tristan was still there helping me through each step of the way. I truly appreciate his professionalism and patience with me through the process. The peace of mind and knowledge he brought were well worth the money spent. Thank you Tristan!

Contract Drafting and More
Mr. Legrande has assisted me and my business with putting together contracts that will protect us in the long run from lawsuits and/or chargebacks. Very professional at what he does, thats why I’ve been a returning customer for over 15 years. If anyone needs any attorney advice I always send them to Legrande as I know he will definitely take care of them, and he certainly has done so. He will answer the many questions I ask and take care of all concerns. Extremely satisfied with his work

Great Attorney!
Tristan Legrande by far is the best man for the job for any criminal case. I highly recommend Mr. Legrande. The felony that I caught was the second one of its nature,and of course I was scared out of my mind,he eased my mind about the whole process. Great customer service and very professional. He is a amazing attorney. He’ll work with you so he’s very affordable. I am grateful for the help I received. When it was all said and done,he was able to get my felony case (family violence) dismissed. I am referring him to all my friends and family.

Family Assault Charge
I got myself in a situation I never dreamt possible spending my first time in jail in a situation I had no idea whether I even needed an attorney. It really was the most miserable time of my life and I wanted this whole experience just to be taken care off as soon as possible so I could focus on going back to running my business and enjoying family life! Tristen was referred to me by a friend also an attorney telling me I need to contract this guy to defend me. Even though months of my life seemed to be on hold and very stressful at times, hiring Tristan relieved me of more distress than I could handled if I had tried to defend myself. Tristan knew exactly how to handle my case in a time of Covid which was a whole nother level. His knowledge and professionalism made his law firm an easy choice helping me in a time of need about an industry I knew Zero about. I have no regrets spending the money having a professional like Tristan made me feel comfortable he was going to get the right results we discussed and indeed his advise and professionalism worked in my favor. Thanks again Tristan for making my nightmare situation bearable.
