Highly recommend
Lane supported our injury case for my husband during a very difficult time, he was rear ended in a hit and run and had severe injury to his shoulder. Lane was incredible, walked us through every step of the process as this was our first time doing this, and he kept us informed regularly and abreast of every milestone. Lane went above and beyond and got us a high end settlement out of court. We could tell he truly cared about my husband and our family well being. He called regularly and checked on David’s treatment and healing process. We are grateful to have been referred to Lane and highly recommend him!

Fully Satisfied
I had known Rhett professionally for years and could not have been more pleased with his handling of my car accident case. My first inclination was to let it go and not hire an attorney, but when the MRI found three herniated discs I was glad I had Rhett on my side. He got me a fair settlement that made me whole, thanks Rhett!

Knowledgeable and skillful
I knew, I could fight myself to big insurance company for my auto injury. So, I discussed with a friend who referred me to Rhett. Rhett listened to me with patience and proceeded carefully to the insurance company. He had to fight hard but did not give up. Finally I got positive outcome. Thanks to Rhett and his team. I will always refer to Rhett to anyone.

Rhett is an Outstanding Lawyer!
Rhett Hoestenbach is a talented, caring and highly professional attorney. He discovers the relevant facts, knows the applicable law and negotiates on your behalf from a position of strength. I have referred several friends and clients to Rhett for help and they have all been very satisfied. There is no bragging or puffing when you deal with Rhett. Just quick, positive results and the knowledge that he truly had your best interests in mind rather than his own. Rhett's ethics, in addition, are beyond reproach.

Rhett is awesome
I hired Rhett in my personal injury case. He was great! Even when I was ready to give up, he kept fighting and I received twice the amount of money I was ready to settle for.

Personal Injury - Auto wreck
When I had a no-fault head-on wreck, I needed a lawyer but didn't know one. I was referred to Rhett by another firm. I wasn't looking for an "ambulance chaser" or someone who would work to screw the other driver. I needed my rights represented and Rhett couldn't have done a better job on my behalf. He called me almost weekly to update me on the proceedings, and he acted very professionally and competently in all ways. He kept the process moving forward and the case was settled in under one year. I highly recommend Rhett to anyone in similar circumstances to my own, and I have.

Glad I called...
I called Rhett for some friendly advice after my Mom and Aunt were in a pretty bad car accident. With both having to visit the ER and spending a few night in the hospital the bills started to pile up and worry started to set in. Rhett took the case and took care of any issues or concerns that came up. He and Lane did a great job of keeping us informed which was appreciated. Thanks for taking care of us!

Rhett Lane Hoestenbach
Lane and Rhett took care of things in a timely fashion. They were extremely knowledgeable and made us aware of things of which we had no prior knowledge and therefore would have missed out on financially. They were pleasant and prompt. If, by chance, they were unavailable when we called., it would be only a short time before they returned our call. They "took care of business" always making sure we were on board. No procrastination.

If you need someone with a backbone to fight for you
Rhett is a professional! He is sympathetic, has empathy and he is genuinely concern for his clients well being and health. He keeps you inform with open communication and stands up for your right. I am please to have had his attending and helping me during my car accident. I was 8 months pregnant and he made sure I and my unborn child were well taken care of.

Excellent attorney
After experiencing a rear collision we contacted our insurance company. We were not satisfied with the settlement that the ins company gave us so we contracted Rhett to represent us with the ins company. He and his firm did a fantastic job for us. We were extremely satisfied with the settlement he was able to negotiate with the ins company. I would most definitely recommend Rhett and his firm.

He's there when you need him!
Rhett helped me in 2013 when I got hit not once but twice within 4 weeks. He never gave up and made sure everything was taken care of. I was young and afraid but having a great attorney made everything seem not so bad.

Best in the West (Lake area)
Rhett and his team were so great through the entirety of my case. Any time I had a question on my case I knew a quick phone call to Rhett would clear up any confusion I had. Through all of Rhett's hard work I got much more on my case than I ever expected. Thanks for taking care of us Rhett!

Best Austin Lawyer
I can't thank Rhett Hoestenbach enough for helping me with my case. I was feeling hopeless and Rhett not only worked diligently to help me, but calmed my nerves and got me more than I could have hoped for. He is really a top notch attorney and I would recommend him to anyone that asked. If you need representation, Rhett is definitely the best there is. Thank you Rhett!
