Lanny Begley attended Austin Peay State University in Tennessee for his undergrad, where he was involved in Kappa Sigma Fraternity and the Honors Program. In 2008 Lanny received a BA in Political Science and a minor in English Language and Literature. From there he went to Baylor University School of Law, was active in Phi Alpha Delta, and also the Order of Barristers. He received his J.D. in 2011, and sworn in to practice law in Texas in 2012. Mr. Begley has worked in both civil and administrative law before starting at the Coffey Firm. When not working, he and his wife try to fill time with travel and live music.
Lanny has also suffered the stressful process of a DWI arrest. He knows what our clients have gone through, and therefore wants to lessen the confusion and fear of the court system. Fighting for our clients is of the utmost importance to Lanny, especially after experiencing it all from their perspective.
“When I first met Lanny in his interview, I was struck with his forthrightness. He reminded me a bit of myself. He is a very serious scholar. I am so grateful to have Lanny at the firm and enjoy mentoring him. He has masterful control of his temperament and exudes professionalism in any and every setting. Lanny initially worked in our Dallas location. This was a great experience for him as Dallas County is far larger, and many things are done differently there. Lanny has quickly earned the respected position of arguing motions and handling appeals, in addition to daily court docket settings. Recently, he was published in the Voice of the Defense (statewide) critically analyzing a Court of Criminal Appeals decision which is frequently used out of context in DWI motions to suppress. Lanny has served on the board of the Arlington Young Lawyers Association for the past several years. He enjoys giving back to local community needs through the volunteer work of this group. His dedication to helping others charitably represents the kind of noble character we value at the Coffey Firm. When asked to describe how he felt about helping others at the Coffey Firm, he responded “The presumption of innocence is one of the most important rights people have in our country, and I am happy to work every day to make sure our clients are afforded it.” Thank you Lanny for all you do for the Coffey Firm and our community. It is privilege to have you on our team.”
