After earning a reputation as an aggressive, talented, and innovative prosecutor, Brian Poe decided to utilize those same attributes and legal skills, which he honed for over 10 years as a state and federal prosecutor, to representing those accused of state and federal crimes. Brian is a graduate of Texas A&M University and Southern Methodist University School of Law. Brian started his legal career as an Assistant District Attorney at the Dallas County District Attorney's Office, and quickly became one of the office's "rising stars" and go-to attorneys. Brian quickly promoted through the ranks as he gained experience trying cases ranging from DWI to Capital Murder. After successfully trying over 100 jury trials in state court, Brian was hired as a federal prosecutor at the United States Attorney's Office in the Northern District of Texas.

Initially, Brian prosecuted federal offenses throughout the entire district, appearing in federal court in Amarillo, Abilene, Dallas, Fort Worth, Lubbock, and Wichita Falls, but his primary duty stations were Dallas and Fort Worth. As an Assistant United States Attorney, Brian continued to prosecute violent crime and large scale drug organizations; however, Brian spent the majority of his time handling complex investigations involving a multitude of financial cybercrimes, including computer intrusion, theft of trade secrets, tax fraud, mail/wire fraud, bank fraud, money laundering, and violations of the Bank Secrecy Act.

Due to Brian's success in handling some of the most difficult cases in the district, Brian was frequently asked to give lectures for several law enforcement agencies or organizations, including the FBI, IRS, Homeland Security, and DEA on topics such as money laundering, asset forfeiture, Bank Secrecy Act investigations, synthetic drug cases, and prosecuting Hobbs Act robbery cases. After serving as a state and federal prosecutor for over a decade, and successfully trying approximately 150 trials, Brian now advises and represents individuals, companies, and organizations relating to issues involving state and federal criminal offenses.
