Brian Chavez graduated from Harvard University in 1993 and from the Texas Tech University School of Law in 1996, becoming a certified attorney on November 1, 1996. He returned to Odessa to practice with his dad (a United States Army veteran, former police officer, and former Ector County district attorney). Brian has been of counsel of the Hoestenbach Law Group since 2016.

Brian has handled numerous cases throughout his legal career and likes to say that he handles “anything from a parking ticket to a murder” in criminal courts across Texas and the United States. Brian is well respected in the legal community and renowned for knowing his clients’ cases inside and out, which has resulted in numerous “not guilty” verdicts and dismissals throughout his legal career.

Brian was featured in the New York Times best-selling book and Academy Award-winning Hollywood movie “Friday Night Lights.”
