A five star rating for a five star criminal lawyer
I am glad I found Mr. Patrick L. Hancock to represent me when the sky was falling on me for the catastrophic drug charges that had been made against me. He is an above average well-seasoned and highly cultured criminal lawyer and above all, he is a decent individual. He has my highest admirations and I recommend his services without hesitancy.

Very professional! Responded promptly and took the time to explain in detail the judicial system and how it pertained specifically to me and my loved one.

Expert lawyering kept me out of jail
The best decision of my life was hiring Pat Hancock to represent me. He saved my life. Without him I would have gone to prison for as long as 10 years. Instead, I'm a free person. It was 3 and 1/2 years between the time I hired Pat and when I went to trial. He worked hard on my case from the beginning. If you want a lawyer who will be there for you 24/7, that's Pat Hancock. He protected & encouraged me so I could get through the horrifying ordeal. Through countless hours of preparation, Pat developed an effective defense strategy for my case. He also located a superb expert witness who was indispensable to winning the case. Pat knows the law and outclasses the prosecutors in the court room. Pat's partner, David Christian, and his entire legal staff are outstanding. It's no surprise to me Pat is rated as one of the top lawyers in Texas.

Whats the plan?
Mr. Hancock represented my son in a criminal case. There was much disappointment as my son and I did not feel like Mr. Hancock was actually fighting for him throughout the process. There was alot to be desired from Mr. Hancock during the process. Mr Hancock used the states investigative findings instead of doing his own investigation to fight for my son. He made a statement to me on a couple of occasionas that I wasn't a rich woman in regards to paying for an investigation for my son. I was told by another attorney, that the state would have covered the cost of an investigation for my son that was not done by this attorney. Mr Hancock used the states slanted data instead of collecting his own. My son has been in jail/prison for about 6 years now. I just wish that Mr. Hancock would have cared more about his client, my son. I don't understand how the lawyer, Mr. Hancock, kept asking the client, "what's the plan?" I may be wrong, but I thought the attorney should formulate the plan? If we were familiar with the law, we wouldn't need an attorney. My son's case could have turned out differently, if the one that represented him,did more on his behalf. My heart is broken!

"I recommend Mr. Hancock based upon several factors. First, I supervised him during his tenure as an Assistant District Attorney. He was thoughtful and diligent as a prosecutor. Second, when he became a defense attorney, he used his wealth of prosecution experience to pick apart flaws in the prosecution’s case. Finally, he has the courage, passion, and commitment to challenge the State when defending his clients."
