"I never thought I would need TMPA or an attorney for an IA investigation like this by my own department. However, I realized very early in this investigation that things were not being done correctly. I am thankful you and TMPA were there for me (and my guys who were involved)."

"Our board and membership was really happy with the outcome of this year's contract. Halfway through our contract meetings, Mike [Zellers] was leading the majority of the negations, using tactics and knowledge that left the city's bargaining team impressed and submissive."
With the quality of legal representation TMPA has, I cannot imagine why any police officer would seek representation elsewhere. I am forever indebted. Thank you.
Noel and Ashlie helped me out at the last moment and we were able to teach the class with no issues and get TCOLE credit for it. They both helped us out of a bad situation with no hesitation, and I just wanted to give a huge thanks to them and TMPA for the assist.
With this letter is a cashier's check with the amount of $246 [that] I collected at my school. I hope my donation will help you support the men and women who help us.
[Atty.] Lance [Wyatt] helped me through the whole process and was patient and compassionate about the incident. Without him or the fine organization of TMPA, I don't know what I would have done. THANK Y'ALL.
"I [donate to the PAC fun], not because I am wealthy or even an easy touch, but rather a believer in the cause for which you triumph. I know when it comes to legislation benefiting the worker, much bigger pockets are willing to spend what it takes to table or kill the proposed bill."
"I just want to say thank you for impressing upon me years ago the importance of joining an organization that would represent my best interest in a time of need. Paul Aman and his associates did a great job of responding quickly and getting me through a tough time."
"As a 19 year member of TMPA, I realize it’s the caring unselfish people within the organization that make it so great. Thank you again, to all the staff of TMPA for the efforts you put forth daily in serving Law Enforcement across the Great State of Texas."
I am very pleased with Chris Hesse and would recommend his services to anyone who asks.
Mr. Hesse was and is very professional. He cares deeply for his clients.
I hope and pray I never have to go through a situation like that again but it’s comforting to know that if I do, I have TMPA and Greg Cagle there to take care of me! Thanks again and keep up the good work!
"[I] work for the Lubbock Police department. Myself and my partner recently switched from Cleat to TMPA when we were put in a bad spot by our department. Tray Payne and HL O'neal were the attorneys given to us by TMPA. I feel these two guys worked extremely hard for us. They worked like we paid them a million dollars."
"I cannot express how grateful my family and I are to have TMPA in our corner...thank you to your team of professionals for their expeditious support and assistance."
I would like to express my respect and gratitude to Tiger Hanner who represented me after I was terminated from my position as a police officer which I had held for more than five years. I strongly recommend him to any police officer, he can work out a great deal faster than you can change your clothes!
"I have never witnessed or been a part of an organization who cares so much about their officers AND their families...Recently, I have spoken with both Mitch and David from TMPA, and both men were beyond kind, compassionate, and understanding. Both of them went above and beyond anything I could have ever imagined in order to ensure our needs were met."
I would like to take a moment to tell TMPA thank you for your service. I was recently involved in an officer involved shooting, and Lance Wyatt responded and performed flawlessly... thank you for what TMPA is and stands for.
"TMPA, Lance, and you truly embody the mission to protect the rights and interests of Texas law enforcement officers. This has been proven countless times as you all provide the very best legal assistance."
"Thank you TMPA for what you do and thank you for providing the professionals that you do in a time where we feel alone. Attorneys like Brett definitely goes above and beyond."
“Thank you TMPA for all your help when I was in a shooting and also thank you for the great customer service.”
I would like to thank you all for giving me an A+ attorney to represent me during this very difficult time. I cannot say enough to explain in words how grateful I truly am. Again, thank you.
The process was long and strenuous at many points, but TMPA showed why they are the best out there... To the directors, local representatives, and especially to the finest legal team, my family and I thank you for the steadfast dedication to bringing out the truth.
"Again...I can't thank you enough for the work you [Greg Cagle] did....and the interesting stories we shared during our nail biting moments waiting for the Grand Jury."
Like some officers, I didn't believe I would ever need TMPA representation. I failed to recognize that need when it was presented to me. I should have realized that almost everything a law enforcement officer encounters on the streets, in an investigation, or in training has some sort of litigation aspect to it.
I look forward to my remaining years in law enforcement as a loyal member of TMPA.
I would highly recommend Bob [Gorsky] to anyone seeking counsel.
"I am very happy and pleased at how effectively you [David Donahue] and Mr. [Paul] Aman worked on my case. Thank you again for your time and your work. It was greatly appreciated."
"Over the past 9 years, through sponsors like you, we have been able to donate over $225,000 to assist the Make-A-Wish Foundation of North Texas grant wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions, and support the charities of the I.P.A.B."
"Prior to attending this course [New Supervisor School], I was already a supervisor, but I just did what I thought a supervisor should be doing. I was unaware of so many of the aspects and key points to being a successful supervisor…"
"Thank you for being there when I needed assistance, I hope this will be the only time I go through this, and can finish out my career without further incident, but I will always remain a member of TMPA, just in case."
"This course [New Supervisor School] has opened my mind up to different aspects of being a supervisor…I will develop myself to become what my department needs."
I would like to thank you for selecting me as a 2014 scholarship recipient. I appreciate the financial assistance very much. This award is very important to me as my dad has been a police officer for a long time. I am very proud and honored to accept such a generous award.
Moving forward, I now know what great legal representation looks like. I have always been a TMPA member since I started my career, and I will be a TMPA member for life. Whenever I mentor a rookie, I always impress upon them the importance of having an advocate. For me, this means the TMPA.
"The combination of TMPA and our affiliate attorneys are as formidable a team as we could hope for, and all of us as members are fortunate to have you on our side.
"...having TMPA on my side makes me confident that I have the best team backing me up should I ever need you all again."
"I would like to say thanks to you, TMPA, and Attorney Greg Cagle and his staff. If it had not been for Cagle's great first stand, the arbitration, none of the following would have been possible."
"I attended [an Officer Rights] class and thought it was super and well presented. Thank you."
"I wish to thank the TMPA for the support provided in the days after the loss of UHCL Officer Joe Segovia. The quick check was an act of kindness that made Mrs. Segovia know that as the wife of a police officer she is part of a larger family."
"I want to thank you for representing me during my shooting – you made the entire process simple and pain free."
"This money will go a long way in helping to support this team and the efforts to bring joy to these children. Your support has allowed them to buy uniforms for the whole team! This was the first year that they were able to wear a uniform like all of the other competing teams and where able show that they are a unified team."
She walked me though everything and went out of her way, day and night, from day one. After a long month of this, everything has worked out because of her and all the hard work she has done. I just want to say thank you for having an attorney for TMPA that will work day and night for her clients.
"For our 2nd year, with your donation, we were able to raise more than $3,500. This money will go a long way in helping to support this team and the efforts to bring joy to these children."
"Thank you for [donating] to the 2013 Coppell PD Motorcycle Competition...Each year, between 140 and 160 officers are killed in the line of duty, and their families and co-workers are left to cope with the loss. Your generous donation will help this endeavor."
"I’ve known Robert for many years. It was comforting to have a friend and attorney at the same time during the most difficult time of my career. Noel was great as well. I called him and he returned my call immediately and was very supportive."
"We had two officers that did not make training and were placed in jail. The city did not want to pay them for the sick leave that they had accrued. Once Randy Doubrava supplied us with the case law, the city saw it our way and paid them for the sick time.
Last year, when I went through a shooting, the amount of support I received [from TMPA] was incredible. My attorney [Paul Aman] came to the hospital and didn't leave my side. I got calls of support from all over Texas. I tell everyone, especially new officers, about y'all and let them know that this is money well spent. The experience I had with y'all is priceless! The services were beyond what I expected!
"Over the years TMPA has represented me in three shootings and two employment issues. Words cannot say enough of how grateful I am to be a member. I always say to anyone who listens that I would not work one minute out there in law enforcement without being a member of TMPA."
"I just wanted to commend the TMPA staff, along with Robert McCabe, who recently provided me with assistance through a critical incident…Robert provided me with valuable information and assured me that he would assist me throughout the whole process."
"I want to thank you for the work you are doing to better the conditions for police officers all over Texas...I was so impressed with the organization, I joined and spread the word throughout my 99% CLEAT department."
Without the support that the LPPA has received from Dick, Brandon and John, we would never have been able to accomplish our goal. TMPA is a class act organization and I am proud to be a member of it.
"Because of your support and donation, the banquet and after party were an overwhelming success. All monies raised will be used to support FPOA Charities. Again, we thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you in the community."
I will be eternally grateful for all TMPA and John Snider did for me in my time of crisis.
"I cannot tell you how much it means to me and the team to have your support. As a reminder, you've helped six different charities that help injured police and fire personnel as well as the families of the fallen. "
I'm a longtime TMPA member and a retired Garland PD officer. I always go straight to your editorial in IN SERVICE. This month's (September-October 2016 issue) magazine was excellent as always.
"I just wanted to drop a line and say Thank You to TMPA for supporting our first ever car show. We raised enough money to provide four $1000.00 scholarships to deserving Seniors...God bless you and your staff for all y'all do for all of us."
"As you can imagine it shook our department, knowing that one day you are side by side with a fellow officer and the next day he is gone. As soon as TMPA got the word Leighton Guarnere was quick to respond with the offers of help for the department and the deceased officers family...It’s a good feeling to know you have all of these good people ready to help you out when you’re down."
"Thank you for for awarding me the generous TMPA scholarship. Your office has not simply given away money; you have given me a chance at nearly debt-free education. I will be forever grateful to you and your associates."
Thank you for recognizing the injustice in this law and joining us to be a voice for our officers who no longer have one! You all are a tremendous blessing in the lives of Texas survivors.
I will never be able to completely express in words my appreciation for what you did for me and what you do for police in some of the most awful times in their careers. The men and women who put on a badge take an oath and choose to go to work and uphold the law as always.
I wouldn't work a day in law enforcement without the backing of such an important and effective organization. I have never questioned the commitment of TMPA to protect the interests of its members...John [Snider] is an asset that represented TMPA well and I recommend him without reservation.
On behalf of the Coppell-Grapevine Association, we would like to thank you for your donation to our 2015 Police Motorcycle Skills Competition. Your generous support makes it possible for our organization to exist and make a difference in people’s lives.
The knowledge that was passed onto our organization by Mr. DeLord and Mr. Lawrence was instrumental in achieving our goals. Both of them were tenacious in their efforts to negotiate on our behalf.
I am writing to thank you and your organization for helping us with collective bargaining. We were able to secure a 10% raise on a two-year contract and got rid of the 43-hour work week.
"I want you to know that your organization works Sir, your organization does care Sir, and your organization gave me hope after I lost my freedom, my job, and so much more."
"On Christmas Eve a horrific event changed our lives more then you will ever know. But in the midst of the most awful day, TMPA stood by our side. We extend our most sincere THANK YOU to each of you at TMPA and the great organization that you are."
