I was faulty accused of a serious crime, and Brian fought to clear my name. Other lawyers wanted to charge me more, and advised me to plea bargain despite the fact that I was innocent. Brian fought for me and won while charging me a fee that I could afford. If you are an innocent person facing a criminal charge in Travis county Brian Tillman is the best lawyer you can get.

I got myself into a pickle with a DWI when I wasn't technically driving the vehicle but had set the alarm off while sitting in the passenger seat rolling down the windows waiting on my driver. The driver was inside the recording studio. I had stayed in the car so I wouldn't disturb their recording. But when the car alarm started I couldn't figure out how to turn it off, so I stupidly went to the drivers seat to move the car across the parking lot away from the studio. A man with his kids asked me if I needed help and I was stressed out and yelled some rude things so he called the APD on me. When APD arrived I wasn't in the car but the witness did see me in the vehicle and this was included in the police report along with the very rude name I shouted at him. As you will learn in your DWI classes, keys of the ignition still qualifies as a DWI, and someone did see me move the car to the other side of the parking lot. I have been working in legal for several years and seeking admittance to law school with goals of a government position. I knew this was bad news for my future even if I wasn't deliberately weaving down Mopac. Brian took the time to know me and communicated with me constantly, met me outside of all my court dates and did his best to keep me calm. He recommended that I go ahead and get all my classes and alcohol counseling done as soon as possible. I ended up in an alcohol awareness class on my birthday but it was so very much worth it. When we finally got ahold of the tape almost 6 months later, it was bad news too. Clearly I was excited and did a dance because I had walked a straight line, but the officer never turned on the mic on his lapel so whatever absurd things I said were not recorded. The only thing you could hear was me crying when they threw me in the back of the car. This was not good but also not bad. Brian was able to get me deferred for 2 years after we reached an agreement with the county and thus far I have been good and nothing has come up on my record. I did have to install the interlock in my car for 9 months but it has been totally worth it. Its amazing how your car wont start when you have had one drink or even Listerine but still an eye-opener for sure. Tillman is kind, professional and at times can make you smile in uncomfortable situations when you need it the most. He went above and beyond to help me out and was worth every penny I could scrape up to pay him. As long as I stay out of trouble this stupid mistake on my part shouldn't come back to haunt me and I should still have an excellent future in my chosen fields. Thanks Brian!

Brian is the epitome of professionalism and courtesy!! A friend of mine had a DWI and explained how impressed she was with Brian and recommended him. I had numerous issues that needed to be addressed and he bent over backwards to provide me all the resources and information necessary to move forward with peace of mind. We had a few decisions that had to be made. Brian explained the the entirety of all options, giving a clear understanding of exactly what the best next steps should be. Needless to say, everything was resolved as promised. I truly believe Mr. Tillman cares for his clients and will do everything in his power to assist in resolving whatever situation you find yourself in!
