BRIAN K. TILLMAN is a Texas native who returned to Vermont practice in 2021, joining the firm as Of Counsel. He is a 1994 graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, and earned a Juris Doctorate from Vermont Law School in 1998. He is currently licensed in both Texas and Vermont, where he focuses on general civil litigation, real estate, and plaintiff's side workers compensation and personal injury.
Brian was admitted to the Vermont Bar in 1999, and spent nearly five years practicing criminal law at the Law Office of Nicholas Hadden in St. Albans. He gained substantial trial experience as a contract public defender in Franklin County, was admitted to the United States District Court, District of Vermont, and became a member and board member of the Vermont Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. In addition, he attended the 2002 Western Trial Advocacy Institute in Laramie, Wyoming, which further shaped the way he views and handles jury trial cases.
In 2004, Brian returned to Austin and was admitted to practice by the Supreme Court of Texas. He joined Texas' largest criminal firm and continued honing his trial skills before going into solo practice in 2006. In 2009 he formed Tillman Braniff, PLLC, a highly-regarded criminal firm, and has been a member of the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, the Austin Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, and the NORML Legal Committee. Brian takes immense personal satisfaction in helping people through some of their most difficult situations, and will go fishing if you turn your back on him for more than a few minutes.
