Best lawyer around
Hired him because of a disorderly conduct. Showed up at his office, told me he could get it dismissed, and he followed thru. Other lawyers around were talking long term trial. He’s the only one intent on getting it thrown out instead of looking forward the trial. He’ll be my go to if I ever need him and I’ll be recommending him. He’s also the only one that replied to my requests for legal assistance. The other lawyers around here in Austin ignored my emails.

Experienced Attorney
Jason answered my call in the middle of the night, met promptly with our family, laid out a strategy and was very responsive via email and texts whenever we had questions. He’s very knowledgeable to a scientific degree at times and that’s ok! He got the job done and got us the results we were looking for. As someone else mentioned, he does not sugarcoat but don’t let that dissuade you, he’s going to represent you very well!

Thank you!
I highly recommend Jason Trumpler for anyone in need of legal representation. He demonstrated exceptional dedication and skill in handling my case, resulting in the dismissal of all charges against me. One aspect that set him apart was his availability. He was always accessible, ready to assist me day or night. This level of dedication eased my worries and allowed me to trust that my case was in competent hands. Throughout the entire process, Jason maintained regular communication with me. He kept me informed about the progress of my case, providing updates and answering any questions I had. This open line of communication further established a strong attorney-client relationship and made me feel supported. Additionally, I greatly appreciated that Jason personally attended court proceedings on my behalf. This saved me valuable time and allowed me to focus on other aspects of my life, knowing that Jason was diligently fighting for my rights. Overall, my experience with Jason was exceptional. His ability to get all charges against me dismissed and his constant support and communication reassured me during a difficult time. I highly recommend Jason for anyone seeking reliable and effective legal representation.

Amazing lawyer
Now I have not been in this situation before so while I don't have much to compare this experience to, I URGE that you read this if you are in a situation that was similar to mine, and are in desperate need of an attorney to represent you. I was charged with a second degree felony for possession of a controlled substance. Jason was super professional and treated me with the utmost respect through the entire process. He was also very honest about the nature of the situation and that the charges would potentially have implications on my future. We explored the different opportunities of the situation and I ultimately allowed Jason to handle the situation in the way that he saw was proper. This resulted in my charges being dropped. Get Jason, he makes for a great lawyer who really cares about you and your future.

Jason is AMAZING!!!
Jason & his assistant Alex are amazing. Jason will tell you how it is and won’t give you false hopes on what he can do for you. Jason went above and beyond for me on my DWI charge and unlawful carrying of a weapon.

Competent, Assertive and Effective
Jason is an experienced attorney who is a cut above the rest. He and his team were prompt to respond and made communication easy. Jason immediately filed the necessary paperwork and took the burden off me. I felt confident in his handling of my case and the fee was worth it for the stress reduction alone! Ultimately, Jason's perseverance, knowledge and negotiation skills resulted in the dismissal of my case. If you're debating whether to hire an attorney and reading this, I have your answer — hire him.

Best Lawyer
Trumpler got me dismissed from a family violence. He charges the cheapest among all the lawyers we have called in Austin and he knows about his job the best! Trumpler knows how to communicate with the prosecutors very well! I was so worrying about my case. But just by following what Attorney Trumpler told me to do, I got dismissed from the State in less than 5 months. He and his secretary Mia are very helpful!! I will definitely go back to Trumpler for expauging and I would definitely recommend him to anyone- handles the cases so well and charges the cheapest!

He answered all of our questions during the consultation and was very honest. After we hired him he sent someone out to see my son that same day. Both him and his staff were very helpful, personable, and knowledgeable. I have already referred others to him.

On top of everything
Mr. Trumpler was available anytime I had questions and responded immediately. I did extensive research on lawyers and I was impressed with his extensive experience but also that he was a DA, wrote policy and now does defense...which means he knows the intricate details of the system and knows how and when to intervene. I was shocked to find his legal fee to be the lowest of all the other lawyers I called for quotes and knowing what I know now about him, I would have payed twice as much. My case was tried for a DUI but because he is so knowledgeable, I received an "Abandoned Vehicle" charge. I have unsupervised probation which means I pay the state money and send emails each month for 15 months. Because of his skill, I will not loose my job and will be able to go to grad school next fall because there is no DUI on my record. Thank you Mr. Trumpler!!

Best damn attorney in Texas!!
I'm rolling through life and make it to 40 without a criminal history, and BAM – DWI. To say I was scared is an understatement. I had basically zero knowledge of the system and knew I needed help. Man, did I make the right phone call to Jason! He was so kind and patient with me and ALL my gazillion questions from the time I woke him up with the call from jail through the entire 10-month process, and always kept me informed. I had messed up pretty bad here and had limited options legally. Once I overcame my entitled self, I was able to take heed to Jason's advice and let him be the expert, which led to the charges being dismissed!! He is such an intelligent man and really cares for his clients, without an ounce of judgment. He is a fabulous person, has a big heart, and knows exactly what needs to be done, and when. Jason is the man!!
