Tommy Hull is a native Texan who was raised in the Texas hill country. A class of 1999 graduate from Llano High School, he attended the University of Texas at San Antonio with his high school sweetheart and eventual wife, Brittany. Tommy and Brittany have three children that keep them both busy while at home. During college, Tommy gained valuable real world experience and knowledge by completing several internships with private law firms, some specializing in criminal defense, as well as working in the prosecutor’s office of the City of San Antonio.
He graduated from college in 2004 with honors and the distinction of an academic all-American, along with several other prestigious academic accolades. During college Tommy was able to balance a double major course load while also working in the legal field, ultimately earning bachelor degrees in both Political Science and Criminal Justice with a minor in Legal Studies. He was the vice president of his local chapter of Phi Alpha Delta, the largest and oldest law fraternity in the United States, as well as a member of multiple honor societies. He maintained his status on the Dean’s List each and every semester of his collegiate career.
After receiving multiple scholarship offers from both in-state and out-of-state law schools from literally coast to coast, Tommy accepted a full academic scholarship from the Texas Tech School of Law. Throughout law school he continued to gain not only knowledge from the classroom, but valuable experience working at various criminal defense and litigation firms throughout the Lubbock area. Tommy graduated from law school in 2007 and upon passing the state bar exam the first time he took it became licensed to practice law by the State Bar of Texas.
After graduation, he accepted employment with the Midland County District Attorney’s office as a misdemeanor prosecutor. Within a month Tommy tried and won his first jury trial; the first of many. In less than a year he was promoted to a felony prosecutor and later promoted to a trial team chief felony prosecutor. During his time as a prosecutor he was responsible for supervising all aspects of preparing and trying misdemeanor and felony criminal cases.
He has extensive experience conducting jury trials in everything from a Class “C” misdemeanor to first degree felony murder and almost everything in between. Chances are good that if you are accused of a crime then Tommy has most likely handled that exact type of case. Over the years, these experiences provided him with a unique insight into prosecuting crimes and the criminal justice system in its entirety, while forging strong relationships within the west Texas legal community. Tommy is a battle tested and proven criminal trial attorney.
As a former felony chief prosecutor for the state of Texas and an experienced criminal defense attorney that has immense courtroom experience, Tommy understands that just because someone is charged with a crime does not make them a bad person. It fact, being charged with a crime does not even make someone guilty of anything. It is the state’s responsibility and burden to prove guilt in every criminal case and there are many obstacles and areas of weakness that may be discovered and attacked by an aggressive criminal defense lawyer seeking to protect your rights. Tommy would like nothing more than the opportunity to use his exceptional courtroom experience and skills to protect your rights.
