The Texas Law Hawk Is The Internet’s New Favorite Lawyer

Fort Worth defense attorney Bryan Wilson lands a body blow in his quest to claim the ”most ridiculous lawyer in Texas” crown.

There are a lot of ways to find a good criminal defense attorney. You could ask for a referral from a friend or family member. You could Google them. If you really want to do your due diligence (it is your legal future, after all) you could call a number of lawyers to find one that you’re confident entrusting with complicated issues that could affect your life.

Or you could watch some late night TV ads and pick the loudest, most absurd one. And if that’s your approach, congratulations! We’ve found your guy.

The championship belt for “most ridiculous lawyer in Texas” has long been held by Austin’s Adam “Bulletproof” Reposa (whose registration with the State Bar includes the nickname, obviously), who most recently made headlines after claiming credit for the “whites only” anti-gentrification stickers posted on East Austin businesses. But though we declared in 2012 that Reposa had “the most over-the-top ads for a lawyer you’ll ever see,” Fort Worth criminal defense attorney Bryan Wilson (not the one who was in the Beach Boys) has taught us that superlatives are dangerous when it comes to a Texan’s ability to top being over-the-top.

Take a look at what Wilson, otherwise known as the “Texas Law Hawk,” has to offer in the “ridiculous lawyer ad” category:

It’s a bit all over the place. One minute he’s riding a dirt bike past a giant American flag emblazoned with the Constitution, the next there are random explosions and hawks, and then he’s donned a luchador mask for some reason. Because, sure.

This isn’t the first video from the Texas Law Hawk to land on the Internet, of course. Back in May, Wilson uploaded his initial attempt to be the Internet’s lawyer, in which he catches a fish with his bare hands and jumps out of a moving car.

The first video is titled simply “Bryan Wilson – TEXAS LAW HAWK,” and the most recent upload is “Bryan Wilson, The Texas Law Hawk: Commercial 3,” which does lead to an important question: Where is commercial two? Until we’ve seen the full Texas Law Hawk trilogy, the debate over who Texas’s most ridiculous lawyer truly is will rage on between Wilson, Reposa, and any other attorneys who wish to throw their hats in the ring. All you need is some pyrotechnics, weird ideas, and a total lack of interest in appearing dignified.

    As a licensed attorney, I can safely say that my top favorite lawyers are Lincoln, Bonham, Darrow, and BRYAN WILSON – TEXAS LAW HAWK.

    • URKiddinMee

      I presume you are referring to James Butler Bonham who is also one of my personal favorites? There are more than a few ambulance chasers to whom I wish one could administer a “good cane whuppin” a la James Bonham! 😉

        That is the one!

    As if lawyers as a group do not already have a bad enough reputation.

  • Mark Coopers

    I love how no one in the background of the public shots even bats an eye at Bryan Wilson screaming “BRYAN WILSON – LAW HAWK!”. I guess we Texans have indeed seen it all.
    .
    I will gladly admit that I laughed my butt off at these commercials. A definite tip of the hat to Mr. Wilson for sheer fun and chutzpah.

    I didn’t look for or see #1 or 2 after watching 3…Is he drunk?

  • motorcity555

    keep this embicile where you guys are, please.

    • URKiddinMee

      We’ll keep him down here if YOU promise to stay your ass in Detroit, and maybe learn to SPELL.

      • motorcity555

        hey this is like jeopardy……you get my drift no matter my spelling….every woman I’ve met from texas wish the men down there were half as clever and smooth as we detroit brothers are….so me staying in detroit just only assures your worry that you don’t have to fear our dominance if were were in that redneck state

        • URKiddinMee

          Dream on, Mofo, dream on.

    Actually this might surprise you but Mr. Wilson is one bright young man and dedicated to his profession. If you watch his commercials you can see him laugh. You can see his sense of humor. Plus you are discounting how he is reaching his target demographic. His ads are brilliant when you take that into consideration.
    He dated my daughter in high school and I have seen him develop. Again he is very bright. He knows exactly what he is doing. We went by his office one night at 10PM and he was till there working.
    I think you suffer from contempt prior to investigation. At the minimum your missing the point of his ads and the reasoning behind them.

    Anybody got a good lawyer joke to share?
