He'll fight for you
I had a well deserved felony DWI, there was no doubt I did it. The focus from the beginning was mitigating the consequences. Tom fought hard for me, and his actions and persistence saved me and my business. I do have to do a little time-about a month-but then I'm on probation and although it it strict I can continue to run my business. Hiring Mr Locke is a decision you won't regret.

Grateful and Totally Impressed
These words may sound harsh at first; I never expected a fair deal for my case- and it’s entirely possible I would have been screwed, but Mr Locke DID HIS THING! Case dismissed. I’m so thankful!

Best Attorney
Tom fought my criminal case. He explain the process and helped me answer my questions and all my concerns of everything. I felt taken care of as he will help you, explain, and will defend your case. He cares about your time and knows how the case is affecting you. I am very grateful to him as the case was dismissed before going to trail.

Dismissed felony case
Mr. Tom is the best defense attorney money can buy. Very patient and intelligent, does not pressure you into plea bargains, and offers a sense of security knowing you've got him in your corner. Highly recommend.

Excellent attorney
Thomas Locke handled my criminal case. He was very thorough with explaining the process, listening to my questions/concerns and answering them in detail. He always took the time to give me updates on my case regularly and informed me immediately when I received a “no bill” from the grand jury. He is trustworthy and individualizes your case specific to your needs. I felt that he is a fair priced attorney that actually cares about your time and how your case is affecting you. He fought for justice in my case and all charges were dropped before going to trial. Excellent attorney!

Hands-down, THE best attorney!
Was recommended to Tom by Jim Medley's office since my case was filed in Brazoria county. As a first-time defendant facing a felony charge, it was a scary and uncertain experience going through the motions of the criminal justice system. However, Tom and Elizabeth were by my side the whole way through, and gave some peace of mind by explaining the entire process and providing straightforward advice. Anytime I had concerns, they were there to provide guidance, day or night. Tom was in my corner every step of the way, and was even willing to fight the charge in trial. End result = CASE DISMISSED! I cannot be more grateful for their utmost dedication, professionalism, and outcome in handling my case. The resulting peace of mind is priceless, and his counsel is worth its weight in gold. Would highly recommend him, again and again!

Locke Law Firm... It doesn't get an better!
My wife and I hired Tom Locke with Locke Law Firm to represent our son who was absolutely falsely charged. We got what we paid for with a dismissal. Tom has a largely diverse knowledge of criminal law. We were extremely impressed with his concern for our family, professional attitude, constant communication, and persistence with the district attorney's office. We are grateful that we hired Tom to represent our son.

Excellent Attorney!
Tom is an excellent attorney. I cannot thank him enough for all he did for us. After the initial consultation, we knew then and there that we needed him on our side. He is very upfront about the process and any potential outcomes. He will fight for you and will work hard to get the very best results. Communication is excellent and any and every question we had were promptly answered. The both of them were extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Our case was dismissed and lifted a very heavy burden we were facing. Thank you both! Highly recommended!!

Not to be underestimated
This law firm has been my sanity through the roughest year of my life. Tom works hard for the best outcome and doesn't take less than what he believes you deserve. His staff (wife) answers all the calls and helped talk me through the rough patches. Really glad to have had them on my side and finally able to move on with the rest of my life with my innocence in tack.

Tom Locke is your best defense!!!
Tom stated from the beginning that he strives to ensure justice is served, even if that means going the full 9 yards for a dismissal as opposed to an expeditious plea strategy that some attorneys use to generate volume clients as opposed to quality representation. He did EXACTLY that and in my case, justice prevailed and it was expeditiously dismissed. I can only imagine the beast he would have been for me and I know he is in court! If I could give 10 stars I would but unfortunately the site only allows for 5. Thanks again for everything, Tom!

Absolutely Amazing
Tom Locke is honestly the best at what he does. He is an amazing Attorney and an even better human being. He cares about your case as if you’re part of his family. Particularly with my case, I was very anxious and always worrying but Mr. Locke always kept me calm and telling me not to worry and in the end, I wasn’t charged with any crime. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone in the Greater Houston Area. I wouldn’t trust any other Attorney to do the same job Tom Locke did. Truly a splendid human being. When I was being investigated, I was very scared and didn’t know what the process was going to be and I sat down with Mr. Locke. After I left that first meeting, I knew that I picked the best attorney in Houston. His demeanor is very hard working and he explained the whole process and how everything would work out. He told me not to worry and that he would take care of it all. I do not have enough words to describe how great he is at what he does and how great of a human being he is. He is very passionate about his career and doesn’t not take the easy way out. This is truly the only attorney I would ever trust with my life.

Thomas is the maaaan ...
I first observed Tom Locke at the courthouse interact very friendly with the lawyers and the judge. I was facing a DWI and had just finished speaking with the prosecutor. It is overwhelming and knew I was not going to be able to do this alone. I am a resident of America and if I knew if I was found guilty I was possibly going to be deported. We spoke briefly outside and exchanged some courtesies. I had a hunch feeling about him and man am I glad I went with my hunch. The way he cares about your case is undescribable, it's like he is representing someone in his own family. He not only is dedicated, very meticulous and detail oriented but he genuinely cares about you and your family. Hopefully you never have to go through this type of ordeal but if you want the best of the best, look no further and call Thomas Locke already. It will be the best decision you will ever make, I guarantee it!

NOT GUILTY
While sitting the in DA's office trying to get information on how to handle my case I met this great guy who happened to be an even better attorney. He stopped what he was doing and voluntereed information at no cost or obligation. Now I was curious! When I was finally advised I needed an attorney I literally hunted Tom down in the courthouse. It was one of the best decisons I've made. Tom's practice handled my case professionally and was excellent at communication. I was never in the dark about anything regarding my case. I can not reccomend him enough! Thank you for your hard work and seeing my trial end with a BIG NOT GUILTY!

Best in the Business
Mr. Locke and his staff were absolutely wonderful and courteous throughout the entire process. I have heard some stories of lawyers from people in the past that tried to get you to settle for what the court offers and that is definitely not the case with Mr. Locke. He battled for me for as long as it took to get what we deserved which was a complete dismissal of my case! Thanks to him and his staff, I do not have the burden of having a felony on my record. I will be forever grateful! Thank you for being GREAT!!!

This guy is incredible
If you want someone who cares about you and will work hard, Mr. Locke is the man for you. He got my case dismissed on my first court appearance, which I didn’t believe was possible. Incredible lawyer but he’s an even better person.
