Highly recommend! Colin thank you so much for your dedication. Thank you for actually wanting to sincerely help and give us the best outcome we can get. You are by far one of the best. You helped my bf reschedule a court date after it was missed and was able to give him the same plea deal. Thank you again Colin.

Absolutely wonderful! Collin was fantastic. He really fought for me and I am very happy with the outcome of my case. He really fought for my case to have a positive outcome and was supportive, easy to get ahold of when needed and walked me through everything. I would definitely recommend him to anyone and everyone!!

I would highly recommend Hoeller McLaughlin. They helped my husband on a probation violation case and did an excellent job. Dustin Trammel was our attorney and he communicated with us and was supportive and helpful throughout the process. Very good legal service and would recommend this firm.

Colin by far has been one of the BEST attorneys in Ft. Worth. His dedication and attentiveness really shows not only in court but with the client and family. Great communication, easy web portal and friendly staff. 5 stars are NOT enough. Thank you Colin

Stephanie Alvarado

I can not say enough about how grateful I am that Dustin Trammel was my attorney! Having no experience with court proceedings, Dustin explained everything and stayed in touch with me the entire time. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney! Very highly recommend!!

If you have been arrested and charged with a misdemeanor or felony theft charge, then you will likely be ordered by the Court to complete a Theft Intervention Programs, or TIPS.

Here is useful information on where you can complete a Court-ordered Theft Intervention Program (TIPS). Classes are offered throughout the Dallas Fort Worth area. For additional questions, please consult one of our experienced criminal defense lawyers.


As a condition of probation, you are many times required to complete a Theft Intervention Program or TIPS Class.

CSCD (Probation) typically requires all TIPS courses meet minimum requirements: 1.) They must be 10 total hours of counseling, 8 in a group setting and one-hour intake and exit sessions; 2.) Group sessions can meet one or two times weekly, for a total 4 or 8 weeks.

NOTE: “Fast-Track” programs (“Short TIPS”) such as one or two day programs are generally not approved; check with your officer or your attorney before signing up for any program. Completing a program not approved may result in you having to complete an additional approved program.

Make sure upon completion that you provide a Certificate of Completion to your Supervising Officer, or, if applicable, to your Dallas Fort Worth criminal defense lawyer. Here are locations throughout Dallas & Tarrant County (Fort Worth, Arlington, Dallas, Grand Prairie, Plano):
