John Eastland

Founder and Sole Practitioner

I went to school at Andy Woods Elementary, Hubbard Middle School and Robert E. Lee High School. Then I went to Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas (but Tyler’s always been home) and received a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Marketing. I then went to law school in Houston at South Texas College of Law where I majored in Criminal Law and received a Doctorate of Jurisprudence.

I returned home to practice law and for the last 28 years have been practicing Criminal Defense. The last five years I have practiced exclusively DWI/DUI defense. I really enjoy my profession.

It is my goal in practicing law to put my clients first and do my very best to achieve their most favorable results. I often see an advertisement for a Criminal Defense Lawyer which says ‘Former Prosecutor’ or ‘Former Assistant District Attorney’. It makes me think of the novel, ‘Dr. Jeckel and Mr. Hyde’…a man switching from one to the other without notice. I have never been a prosecutor…I have always fought for the Accused Citizen! In elementary, middle and high school I would occasionally get in fights. Not because I was a pugilist, a fighter, but because I would be compelled to get between a bully and a weaker student…I guess I still do that today!
