Excellent Service. 10/10 would hire again
Geoffrey and Justin and all of the folks at Coffer and Connelly took great care of me and my case. I was wrongfully accused of criminal trespassing, criminal mischief, and there was a threat of charging me with assaulting a police officer. The day that these alleged crimes occurred was the worst day of my life. I was tased (twice), beaten, and zip tied by APD in my own front yard. When I was alerted to the potential of a warrant being issued for my arrest, I consulted and then hired Geoffrey and the Coffer Connelly team. Under Geoffrey and Justins guidance, we allowed my warrant to go through so that Geoffrey and Justin could work with the prosecution to prove my innocence. ( I was nervous about this strategy, but I had faith in their experience) The lead detective on the case was adamant that I was the one who committed the criminal trespass and criminal mischief. Ultimately- Geoffrey and Justin handled everything. I didn’t have a single conversation with any of the APD staff, even when they continued to call me and attempted to incriminate me over the phone. Geoffrey and Justin managed to prove that I was in fact, not- the criminal who committed those crimes, by way of my facial hair. (The other guy that the prosecuting team had a photo of, didn’t have the sweet facial hair that I have) The charges were dropped and the firm is currently working to have the charges completely expunged from my record. When sh*t happens and you need an understanding lawyer that treats the law “like art and less of a science”- hire this firm. Justin (the ex-APD chief (I think)) did an amazing job consolidating the facts to ease the process of having the charges dropped. Geoffrey and Justin were very understanding of my terrible experience and supported me along the way. We even had a few laughs over zoom! Justin even allowed me to personally call him a few times for guidance when APD wouldn’t leave me alone. Having Justin on the team is a real ace in hand. His experience and connections with APD made him incredibly valuable throughout the process. While I don’t intend to get wrapped up in any other criminal nonsense, if I did- I wouldn’t think twice about calling Geoffrey and Justin and the team at Coffer and Connelly. I highly recommend this firm. 10/10. Do recommend. So what are you waiting for? Better get that retainer in before they have too many clients to take you on!

Great service
Mr. Puryear answered my first phone call to him while he was in the airport. He called me back that evening just as promised. He was kind, understanding, and knowledgeable. Our issue was resolved completely and professionally. We would highly recommend him.

THE BEST OF THE BEST
My experience with Mr. Puryear and his team of dedicated professionals was exceptional from start to finish. I strongly recommended anyone looking for legal representation to contact his office for a consultation. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!! Geoffrey and his associates were so helpful in my legal battle, I KNOW they would serve anyone they represent with the same diligence and integrity. A huge THANK YOU to Mr. Puryear and his firm! Again, if you are looking for legal help, you would be doing yourself a disservice by not calling this office. Contact Geoffrey and his team, you will not regret it!

Pure Professionalism and Positive Result
I was blindsided by false accusations that flipped my world upside down. I was completely lost and the best thing I did in that moment was contact Geoffrey . He listened to everything I had to say and shared his professional experience dealing with my same dilemma for countless others. Everyone involved with my case from that day forward were extremely experienced and professional. Thankfully my name was cleared and my life restored this service was invaluable. Make the right decision and choose Geoffrey you will not be disappointed.

Best group around!
Mr. Puryear is a brilliant attorney, and I heartily endorse him to anyone who needs one for anything from simple legal matters to serious criminal charges. Words cannot express how drastically this man's hiring affected my life in less than three months. I had a previous lawyer for three years, but he accomplished nothing. Once I fired my former lawyer, I discovered Mr. Puryear, and I am grateful that I did. Regardless of your allegation, Mr. Puryear will treat you with bravery and respect. He is someone I suggest whether your family member is a juvenile or an adult. Mr. Puryear was very courteous and talked to my family at my request to calm their fears. It takes a very exceptional individual with a thorough understanding of his background and profession to obtain a deposition in my first-degree criminal case in such a short amount of time. Mr. Puryear will fight for you and undoubtedly go above and beyond, as I could tell in my case. I was accused in the first degree, and he was able to get me a Differed sentence as long as I complete my probation. I'm still astonished at how swiftly he settled my dispute. He has a team of investigators, a mitigation specialist, and an excellent office staff to deal with. Please know that Mr. Puryear and his team will strive to get the best outcome if you need assistance with anything that concerns the law. As the procedure progressed, he kept me informed. He preserved my future, my career, and my life. I appreciate that, Mr. Puryear.

Great work
Both Geoffrey and Rick were great with handling my case. They were always willing to answer questions and offer advice. They were able to have my case dropped in the investigation phase which was by far the best result possible. I will definitely be recommending then to anyone who would be in need of their services.

One of the best choices I ever made
When I found out my son's ex girlfriend accused me of sexually assaulting her while they were both in bed asleep, I was at my wits end. I have seen in my life many times, good men get destroyed by the allegations of treacherous women and felt I was going to one as well. Not knowing what to do or how to approach this properly, I researched and researched law firms and finally made my decision with Geoffrey and his firm. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made as I thought about going in a whole different way and possibly incriminating myself without even knowing. My family and I knew this girl was obsessed with our son and sprung many other deceits and attempt to get him or punish him, and I was at a loss and feeling very down about having to go through this as I started a brand new job and this would end it before it began. The team, Geoffrey, Justin, and Camille, were highly attentive and supportive with any questions or concerns and the process that they suggested as the best course of action... Which was different than what I thought was going to be the best course and going to speak with the investigators to plead my innocence and figure out what's going on. They collaborated with law enforcement and D.A. on my behalf and constantly kept me in the loop. I was able to contact any of the three day or night and get a prompt response which made me feel a lot better as well. They had a plan A, b, and c for each situation. My father became greatly ill and in the ICU right around my grand jury appearance in court. The grand jury ended up no billing my case with the assistance of my attorneys providing sworn affidavits and testimonies to the DA. If it was not for them, I would not be able to see my father in the hospital. If I were detained, come to find out they had plans b&c in the waitings to make sure that I would be able to go see him. When I walked into the hospital room, my father began to tear up in happiness to see me which made me tear up and thank God, I had this trifecta legal team backing my every move. This lawyer and his team dig deep and true to get to the bottom of the case. This Trinity of Law & Order are the perfect unit to help someone who feels lost and beaten down without hope. They will pick you up from the ashes and show you the light at the end of the tunnel of darkness. I am forever and their debt and cannot stress enough how much of an advantage I had by making the faithful decision to acquire their services.

THE BEST OF THE BEST
Our son found himself in some legal trouble as a freshman at Texas Tech University. After much research we hired Geoffrey Puryear. Mr. Puryear was relatable, professional, honest and easy to work with. We our so thankful to him for all of his hard work with our sons cases! He was able to get all of our sons charges dismissed. His assistant Camila is wonderful! She explained things in detail every step of the way. She was patient and answered so many of our questions. She was so supportive and listened to all of our concerns as we navigated this very unsettling time. We talked so much I feel as though she is a friend. She is kind, caring and supportive. We could not have asked for anything more!

Knowledgeable, thoughtful, and supportive!
Being accused of a crime is something I never would’ve imagined could happen to me. Geoffrey and Justin at Cofer and Connelly were there for me every step of the way. They were incredibly professional, thorough, and kind. Justin, the lead investigator on my case, used his many years of experience in law enforcement to support me. Having never dealt with anything like this before, Justin took time to help me understand the process, helped me organize my information, provided me with frequent updates, and always treated me with the utmost respect. He also went above and beyond to help make my family and I feel safe throughout this ordeal. The team at Cofer and Connelly is incredible and I can’t thank them enough for helping me beat this wrongful accusation!

Truly Amazing
I could not be happier with Cofer & Connelly. Simply the best criminal defense team in Austin. Jeoffrey and his superb team consistently provided updates, and quickly responded to all my calls and emails. I felt there was no way to improve the probable outcome of my case. I took a chance on Jeoffrey. I would say getting all my charges dismissed is an improvement. TRULY AMAZING! I would not hesitate to recommend Cofer & Connelly to my family and friends. Jeoffrey, I truly appreciate all that you and your team accomplished!

Saved My Life
I was badly in need of a lawyer. After researching multiple people I came across Geoffrey Puryear and was sold by his long list of credentials. This was the best decision I could have ever made. Geoffrey and Sarah were there every step of the way to help make the case as easy and stress free as possible. They were able to get the charges against me completely dropped, and allow me to go back to my life with open opportunities. I will forever be grateful to them for their help and kindness.

Awesome Attorney
Last year while visiting Amarillo my husband was arrested on various serious charges in Pottery county. I was distraught, while searching for attorney’s in other cities I stumbled across Geoerffy. I can’t explain how grateful I am to Geoerffy. While representing my husband, He was very professional, honest, up front with pros/cons in the situation, He was professional very aggressive yet strategic against the DA. Honestly one of Best Decision, I ever made in Texas you can’t go wrong with Mr. Puryear.

5-Star Attorney
I hired Geoffrey Puryear to represent me in a criminal case. I was arrested for a felony and was looking at possible prison time. I was really worried but Mr. Puryear calmed me down. Within a few weeks, he had worked a deal with the DA so the charge against me would be dismissed. I didn’t even have to go to a court date. I’m so happy with how my case was resolved. I always felt like he was going to make sure everything was going to be ok. He was a great attorney.

Pound 4 Pound Best Defense Attorney
Outstanding individual who exemplifies grandiose respect and responsibility willing to cross examine all aspects of my charges to serve justice thoroughly for me the Plantiff. My efforts in its entiritey where few to none on my part, partly while an unplanned jail sentence was about a week in duration before extending my court date and having the entire case dropped due to irregular reporting and otherminute material that payed off hugely for myself. Ensure this organization reads back clear cut expectations on your part as I found my entire process to begin and end with ease and literally 5 charges dropped. I am convinced that his acts deem worthy returns and that a natural order ought to follow one's charism and it will be on each client to ensure authentic approaches and conclusions are carried to ensure such surety in bonds as well as allegiance in service and protection as all. Best, Nicholas

Endorse Geoffrey
Criminal defense Attorney | Mar 01
Relationship: Co-worker
"Geoffrey is a remarkable lawyer. He is patient, thorough, and works diligently to achieve the best outcome for every client. He is also a former judge with experience few lawyers have. I highly endorse him for any criminal case."
Criminal defense Attorney | Mar 17
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have known Judge Puryear for well a decade. He is an exceptional attorney and experienced courtroom advocate. Lots of lawyers talk about trial skills, but Geoffrey is the real deal. He has tried some of the most complex and important criminal cases in the State of Texas. He has a tremendous record of success and knows how to win in the courtroom. Additionally, Geoffrey is a man of great integrity and principle. He upholds the highest ethical standards of our profession. It is with great enthusiasm I endorse Judge Puryear."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jan 07
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I have known Mr. Puryear for the duration of his career. I have worked on cases with him and against him and I know him to be a dedicated and skilled trial attorney. He knows the law and knows how to get great results in the courtroom. His clients are lucky to have him by their side. His litigation skills are definitely a benefit to his clients."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jan 05
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"You'll have a hard time finding an attorney with a wider range of criminal law experience than Geoffrey. From simple DWIs to complex felonies, from fine-only offenses to those carrying a possible life sentence, he can handle any criminal matter a client may be facing. Unlike the vast majority of defense attorneys, he possesses a unique ability to analyze a case from the perspective of a prosecutor, a defense attorney, and also a judge, because he's been all three. He also understands that being an effective defense attorney is more than just knowledge of the law and a powerful courtroom presence, it also requires thoughful consideration of each client's situation and tailoring his representation to address individual needs. I wholeheartedly endorse Geoffrey and would recommend him to anyone currently entagled in the legal system."
