Frank Sellers is a trial and appellate attorney, who focuses on representing citizens and businesses in criminal investigations and prosecutions. Mr. Sellers maintains an active criminal trial practice, with a heavy emphasis on helping citizens accused of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). When accused of DWI, citizens face a steep uphill battle, usually because of a breath or blood test that is over the legal limit. Mr. Sellers has convinced juries on multiple occasions to disregard high breath or blood tests, resulting in acquittals for his clients. Because of that Mr. Sellers has earned a reputation as a knowledgeable, skilled DWI trial lawyer. But Mr. Sellers has also tried numerous other types of felony and misdemeanor jury trials to verdict, most of which the jury agreed his clients were “Not Guilty.” In addition to trial work, Mr. Sellers focuses a smaller portion of his practice on criminal appeals and writs of habeas corpus. He enjoys helping those that have been wrongfully convicted regain their freedom.
Because of his early success, Mr. Sellers has been asked to speak to other criminal defense lawyers and judges around the state about various trial and appellate issues. He routinely is rated as one of the top speakers at every seminar where he is asked to speak. Mr. Sellers has also been elected by his local peers as the President-Elect of the Lubbock Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Association. And on a statewide level, he was recently selected to serve on the Board of Directors of the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Association, as one of the youngest Board members in the organization’s history.
Personally, Mr. Sellers was raised in Richardson, Texas. After graduating high school, he earned his degree in Economics from Texas A&M University. While at Texas A&M, Mr. Sellers was on the executive council for the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity (SAE), he was selected as one of the top 25 undergraduate SAEs in the country, and selected as the Texas A&M Greek Man of the Year. Mr. Sellers was also chosen by his peers to be the Chief Justice of the Interfraternity Council.
Mr. Sellers then went onto earn his law degree from Texas Tech University School of Law in 2011. While at Tech, Mr. Sellers was an editor on the Law Review, a member of the Board of Barristers, selected for numerous national mock trial teams, and was the president of the Texas Aggie Bar Association. He also received the CALI Award for the top grade in legal research and writing.
After clerking for the Firm in law school, Mr. Sellers began his career as an associate criminal defense attorney at Hurley & Guinn under the mentorship of well-known West Texas defense attorneys Dan Hurley and David Guinn. Within two years, the Firm was re-named when he became a partner in Hurley, Guinn & Sellers.
