What Our Clients Say

Reviews & Testimonials

Austin Hagee is understanding, skilled, patient, and non-judgmental. Since the very first day I met with him he gave me a sense of immediate peace. The process was long but Austin was always there. Anytime I felt uneasy, a quick call to him would put my mind at ease again. He is always available for his clients. You will not regret hiring him. If you want someone who fights for you and is actually there for you, hire him. I’ve encountered multiple attorneys this past year and only one made us feel cared for and SAFE, look no further. Thank you so much Austin! Like


Austin is a caring, dedicated, and skilled lawyer, and I would highly recommend him. I had a case for 3 ½ years, and I finally decided to change lawyers. I hired Austin, and he went above and beyond to help my case. We went to trial, and he helped me to get acquitted of all charges. Throughout the process, Austin was reliable and responsive. If I had any questions or concerns, I could call him at any time, and he would pick up and answer my questions. He made it a priority to give me the time, and he made me feel heard. My family and I owe him everything; because of him, I have my life back. If you are looking for an outstanding lawyer, Austin is the guy to work with. Thank you, Austin!


Austin Hagee is my husband's attorney and made the most stressful time of our live so much easier to handle. He went out of his way to call me on multiple occasions and explain everything happening in my husband's case in great detail and in a way I could fully understand. He is always there when you need him and as someone who has never dealt with this I was definitely taking up a lot of his time but he never made me feel bad for being confused or upset. He made me feel safe and I could always trust my husband was in good hands.


Austin Hagee is a great criminal defense lawyer and he helped me with a very difficult case. He was able to help me avoid convictions and got one of my cases dropped! He and his staff were so kind and compassionate with me throughout the process. Highly recommend his firm!


Austin Hagee helped me through a hard time. He helped me handled three serious felonies and avoid becoming convicted. He got two charges dismissed! He helped me every step of the way and always was available to communicate every detail with me. I highly recommend his law firm.


He is a good and professional attorney and kept my best interests in mind. He was really able to ease my troubled mind with his in-depth knowledge of the law and even replying back when it was already late after hours. Kept his word. I recommend giving him a call. Thank you.


Austin Hagee is an awesome attorney. He’s very thorough and punctual! He communicates very well and will keep you in the loop. I showed up to court and walked out with case dismissed within 20 minutes of Mr. Hagee walking in. I highly recommend!!!

WOW, CASE DISSMISSED! What an amazing law firm!

Austin's expertise and commitment were instrumental in helping navigate through challenging Assault (physical contact family) cases.


The Austin Hagee Law Firm treated us like family instead of just another number. Their insight and representation exceeded our expectations. Every person we interacted with was professional, authentic, and attentive to our specific needs. Thank you Austin and Kyra for providing sincere and straight forward legal counsel.

Catherine G. SAN ANTONIO, TX

Austin Hagee always answered his phone and on the off chance he didn't, he always called back within 30 minutes. He was there not only for me but also my family when we were dealing with the stress of court and never knowing what would happen next.
