About Colin

Learn Colin’s areas of practice.

As a former prosecutor, I have significant trial experience in all forms of criminal cases including DWI, Marijuana, Controlled Substances, and cases involving persons facing charges for crimes relating to various forms of sexual misconduct. 

The type of case I have the most experience with, however, are cases involving allegations of family violence, including: Assault, Aggravated Assault, Terroristic Threat, Unlawful Restraint, Strangulation, and Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.  During my time as a prosecutor I was a chief of the Family Violence unit in my office and as part of my duties, I trained police officers how to properly investigate these allegations.  As such, who better to know exactly how an officer failed to properly investigate these allegations and use that to your benefit in trial.

For our clients with immigration issues, we've got you covered.  You won't need to hire a separate immigration attorney to make sure that you know how a criminal conviction might effect your immigration status because we include that information as part of our representation

This unique experience as a prosecutor means that you'll have an attorney with incredible trial experience under his belt negotiating and fighting for you who knows exactly what types of tricks to expect from government.

If you need a lawyer who is ready to fight for you in court, call me today for your free consultation.

Best lawyer ever!!!
I hired Mr.Hobbs for my speeding tickets and it was probably the best decision I’ve made in a long time haha. On my first one he researched and talked to the court about what i needed to do and ended up getting that one dropped really quickly. The last ticket was more complicated but the outcome was in my favor. I highly recommend him if you’re in need of any type of legal assistance.

HOW I RECOVERED ALL MY FUNDS
Need you’ll to know COINWALLETRECOUP DOT COM, they’re the Best Crypto Recovery firm out there. i was scammed by a forex website Tradestation to be precise to the tune 0f $153,700. was firstly informed that ill be able to withdraw 11.5% roi weekly from the second month of membership and if i invest more, the roi could be increased by 4.5%. i later invested $17,300 to make it a total of $170,000. After the whole investment, i was only able to make a withdrawal for the first week, then after was told  to invest more to withdraw more but told them that i wasnt interested and wanted to continue with the current roi plan but was told that i wouldnt be able to withdrawal till i invest that was when i saw the red flag and told them i wasnt interested anymore but not surprised by their act i couldnt make any withdrawal again. I told a friend and he referred me to Coinwalletrecoup dot com and withing a week of our contact i was able to withdraw all my funds in addition to my roi for the whole planned duration of 9 months advance payment. I cant still believe that this happened, all thanks to Coinwalletrecoup dot com, you can get in touch with them if you need any of this services, they’re the best out there. COINWALLETRECOUP DOT COM.

Great Attorney - Responsive/Knowledgeable/Effective/Good Staff
In August, 2020, I contacted Colin Hobbs based on a recommendation from a lawyer I respect. A teenage grandchild of mine had gotten two speeding tickets (one was for going at high speeds) and she was considering not seeking the services of a lawyer. I asked for his advice as to the best way to handle the tickets and whether he would consider representing her. Colin provided me with excellent advice and advised he would be willing to represent her. He emphasized that he would be HER lawyer and that he would explain to her the court process regarding traffic tickets as well as the lifetime consequences of being convicted of driving at a high rate of speed. Colin became her lawyer and he helped her realize that a guilty verdict would negatively affect her life as well as future employment opportunities. He patiently explained his fees to her and what his recommendations were. She "connected" with him and she listened to his advice. Because of Covid, most court proceedings were delayed during this period. He stayed on top of her tickets and was able to get court dates delayed. Upon his advice, she took defensive driving and got the lesser ticket dismissed. In November 2021, the high speed ticket was also dismissed by the court. This was due in part to Mr. Hobbs representation and due diligence. Throughout this fifteen month period, Colin and his staff were quick to return calls, provide advice, and take action. His fees were fair & reasonable & he stuck to his quoted prices. And the end results were even better than we had hoped for. I highly recommend Colin Hobbs as an effective, knowledgeable, & responsive attorney who provides over & above service. I am very thankful that he agreed to represent my granddaughter. Thank you, Colin!

Went the extra mile
Colin helped me deal with a Blanco County judge that was overstepping his authority. Ihad recieved a speeding ticket in Blanco and the speed limit was 5 mph over what the ticket said, so we tried for differed adjudication. The judge not only required drivers Ed to get differed adjudication, he required that you write an essay! Colin went to exceptional effort to pressure this judge to get my case cleared, due to the unnecessary requirements. He did it mostly out of a sense of justice. Today, I even asked him about another case in Lampasas that was five years old and still on the books. Colin gave me some good advice as his to handle that and offered his services, should I need them, even though it was in Lampasas. Exeptional effort!

Lawyer
If you are in need of a lawyer Mr. Colin Hobbs is man you need to find. I highly recommend him he knows what he’s doing. He knows the court system very well. I was facing 3yrs in prison, I got 3yrs probation. Listen to what he asks of you, like taking classes so on so forth whatever your case may be, me I was on a felony(3rd DWI). I highly recommended him. He will not tell you any B.S. for example he said I should look into going to in-patient rehab, so I did and look wear I am today at home. Mr. Colin Hobbs I want to say again THANK YOU!

A good attorney
Mr Hobbs really surprised me. He was sincere as well as knowledgeable and went well out of his way to help me. I was arrested again while out on bond and he surprised me by showing up at an auxiliary court to get me out on time served. Was very grateful for that surprise. If you get in trouble, better Be Callin' Hobbs!

HIGHLY recommend Mr Hobbs
I am beyond grateful to Mr Hobbs. This was the most humiliating experience of my life. Mr Hobbs represented me in such a manner that helped me keep my dignity in tact. He was compassionate and professional. Not usually the adjectives used to describe an attorney. He was accessible whenever I called and patiently explained the process I was about to face. I am extremely grateful and HIGHLY recommend his service. Lastly, he followed up with me almost a year later with information that could potentially help me expunge my case. I'm so grateful to you Mr Hobbs. You helped me through an extremely trying time. Bless you.

Colin Hobbs
Mr. Hobbs represented me in a DWI case. He kept me informed about all of my options along the way. He was diligent in finding every legal avenue available to help me understand each step of the process and was attentive to all of my questions. Although each case is different, he was able to use his knowledge of the other counselors and the flaws in my arrest to secure a satisfactory result for me. I would recommend this attorney to anyone facing a similar charge.

If you need a lawyer,Mr. Hobbs is the Man.
The situation was not looking good for my family member. Attorney Hobbs went beyond the call of duty to investigate a case which occurred 31 years ago. He is precise, professional and swift. I was very impressed with his abilities; His honesty, compassion and fairness demonstrated the greatness of this man, it was an honor to speak with him. If I ever needed an attorney he would be the Lawyer for me. In my opinion he is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

Had an issue at school with Daughter
Colin is professional and very helpful!! We had a consultation meeting and he received all my informationthat I had available to give him concerning our issue. He looked over everything and gave his honest opinion on my daughters options. He is not out to make money he genuinely cares about what the out come would be and if we are wasting our time. I have not decided if I'm going to pursue the matter but if I do, I definitely would hire Mr. Hobbs.

Successfully Dismissed Case
Colin handled my case with an exceptional level of professionalism from the moment I first spoke to him on the phone. I was initially not very optimistic about my case on account of having prior un-related, and unfavorable legal encounters that could have worked against me. But my experience with Colin was different. He lucidly explained every facet of my case and engineered a well thought-out legal strategy that he put into motion right away. The level of service I received from Colin and his team was exceptional. Once his strategy was in place, the only encounter I ever had with the court was to show up to announce my name in attendance - the rest was all Colin. It was really that simple. I highly recommend Colin and his team. Thank you for all your hard work Colin.

My attorney
Hobbs is an amazing attorney. Due to some stupid mistakes I made years ago and a senseless probation violation I found myself in need of a defense attorney for multiple counties. Hobbs has fought for me every step of the way. Sitting in court watching the defense attorney/prosecutor negotiations for both myself and other defendants I have seen a huge difference between the way that hobbs has fought relentlessly for me versus the way the other attorneys have pleaded for their clients. I have even been asked by several other defendants in the court room who my attorney was because they wanted to hire him because he fought for me so much harder than their attorneys did for them. He has believed in me from the start and has worked so hard to keep me from going to jail. It’s very difficult when you hire an attorney to know if you are going to find somebody who takes a true interest in your case and your future or if you will end up with somebody who just wants to take your money and make empty promises (had that in the past) I am so blessed that hobbs was the one I chose. He has traveled to multiple counties and multiple appearances and has never let me down. I will never be able to thank him enough.

Assault - Dismissed
I hired Mr. Colin for an assault case a while back. I was really scared because I'd never been arrested before but a friend gave me his phone number and said he knew his stuff. He asked me a lot of questions, explained the process and helped me gather evidence against the other which convinced the DA to dismiss the case because I was just defending myself!

Fantastic Attorney
Last year I was charged with DWI with a breath test of .18 - at first the prosecutor wasn't willing to offer anything less than 2 years probation on a DWI based on my criminal history and the breath test results. Mr Hobbs convinced the prosecutor to watch the video there in court while I was in the courtroom. He managed to get a 6 month deferred probation offer on a Class B Obstruction of a Highway which is MUCH better than a DWI and eventually will get dismissed. Since I won't have a conviction I was able to keep my job and while I hope I don't need him again, he'll be my first call if I do!
