"If you want to stay out of prison, call Tom Lochry."

Practice Areas

Domestic & Family violence

The consequences of a family violence conviction can be far reaching and include loss of firearms rights, loss of custody or visitation rights and felony enhancement.

Assault & Road Rage

All too often petty disputes turn physical. Many times incidents can be justified by the proper use of the laws of self defense, necessity or mistake of fact.

Sex Crimes

Sex crimes are the most difficult to defend against. Society and the law seemingly favor the victim and the possibility of life time registration is a devastating consequence for the accused.

Juvenile Crime

The juvenile justice system can be a pipeline to prison or a timely wake up call. As a former juvenile caseworker and probation supervisor Tom Lochry can help your family navigate the system.


Many families know the pain of addiction caused by substance abuse. These offenses are better handled with treatment instead of incarceration. Many diversion programs are available.

Criminal Record

Mistakes made years ago can have long term effects on employment and credit. Expunctions and non-disclosures are remedies that may remove or lessen the stigma of a criminal history.

About Our Values

“We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

The above words from our country’s Declaration of Independence ring  even more true today than when Thomas Jefferson first wrote then over 200 years ago.  They are the foundation for our Bill of Rights and the basis for our criminal justice system’s presumption of innocence and proof beyond a reasonable doubt.

Forty years after graduating from law school Tom Lochry still believes in those values and strives to zealously advocate with integrity and transparency for your right to a fair trial.  He is board certified in criminal law by the Texas Bar of Legal Specialization and a member in good standing with the Better Business Bureau.

"My family has hired the Law Office of Thomas Lochry several times. The last time detectives put charges on me they tried to make me a snitch. When I refused they added more charges and tried to get me to sign for prison time. Mr. Lochry set the case for trial and got the search thrown out. He sued the city and even got them to pay me back for some of the stuff they stole. If you want to stay out of prison give him a call. He is well worth the money."

"Thomas did an amazing job coming out to the center where they had accused me of child neglect. He talked with every single one of my witnesses making sure he left no rocks un-turned. It was very important to me that he show me how important the case was to him. He went above and beyond getting me in front of the Grand Jury, coaching me on how it would be and last but not least, getting me NO BILLED! I'm thankful to the day for Thomas Lochry! I still have my JOB because of him."

"Mr. Lochry was very important in the favorable outcome of my case. Not only from the build up of the defense and the way he articulated it, but the way he organized his argument. He tied it all together at the end. It is apparent that he was extremely knowledgeable in the law, by the way he sequenced the event, profiled the jury and built his argument....I would definitely recommend Tom Lochry to anybody in need of a lawyer."

"Mr. Lochry represented me better than I could ever have imagined. My opinions were valued and my doubts were always assured. Mr. Lochry went above and beyond and did everything he could to ensure a great outcome. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. Thank you Mr. Lochry.

My husband and I hired Mr. Lochry to defend our 12 year old daughter. Other lawyers told me that it was not worth it to fight the case…. I am so glad that I was referred to Mr. Lochry. After our initial consultation with him we left his office feeling like everything was going to be fine. He worked hard and stood up for my daughter. Her case was ultimately dismissed at trial. Our family really appreciated the efforts of Mr. Lochry and his staff. The best thing to come out of this situation is that my daughter learned to fight for herself and always seek representation. If we ever need representation again, we’re calling Tom Lochry.”
First of all, thank you Mr. Lochry and his assistant Mary Perez for all that you guys did to get my case dismissed. Mary Perez has to win the secretary of the year award because it seemed every time I sent an email or documents, I received a confirmation that my documents received or she responded to my question within an hour. We finished my case a month earlier than we expected and it’s only because I knew exactly what I needed to do to please the courts and I knew exactly what the courts were requesting of me. If you want someone to fight for you and not just push your case through the system to move on to the next case hire Attorney Thomas Lochry. My case was dismissed now let Mr. Lochry do the same for you!
We had a difficult family situation involving our daughter forging our personal checks. She had two felony arrest warrants. We asked Mr. Lochry to achieve the most favorable outcome he could. He presented our case to the grand jury and got the case dismissed. Now my daughter won’t have a felony record and she has learned her lesson.
Straight forward, courteous and quick acting. Definitely will use this office again if I need legal assistance.
