Houston Criminal Defense Attorneys


After a defendant chooses our law firm, our objective is to investigate the case thoroughly and advise the client of the result of the investigation. We have been helping clients throughout all stages of the criminal defense process for more than 30 years, including:


• During a criminal investigation
• After arrested
• At bail hearings
• At trial
• During sentencing
• Throughout the appeals process


In our criminal trial cases, our first objective is to get the case dismissed. We want the client to know all of the facts so that the client can make an informed decision as to what the client wants to do with the case. If the client wants a trial, jury trial, or bench trial, then that is the route that is taken. If the client feels that a plea bargain might be in his/her best interests, then that is the route that is taken.

We assist clients in a wide range of criminal defense cases, from misdemeanors to felonies, including:


Violent crimes, including charges of assault and battery, aggravated assault, manslaughter, murder.


Domestic violence, such as accusations of physical violence against family members or significant others, as well as emotional abuse, threats and harassment, sexual assault, false imprisonment and kidnapping.


Drug crimes, including charges of drug possession and drug trafficking.


DWI/DUI, which includes accusations of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.


Juvenile crimes, which can include many different offenses a minor has been accused of, from drug possession to shoplifting and more.


Probation violations, such as failing a drug test, not performing community service, new criminal charges, failing to pay fines, and not reporting to probation officials.


Theft crimes, ranging from misdemeanor shoplifting to felony burglary and robbery.


Appeals, in which we will pursue the reversal of a conviction.


Federal crimes, which stem from criminal cases that fall under the jurisdiction of the federal government and can include drug crimes, tax fraud, terrorism and white collar crimes.


Sex crimes, including rape sexual assault, indecent exposure, possession or distribution of child pornography and more.


Weapons charges, which can include accusations of unlawfully carrying a weapon, violations of concealed handgun license, assault with a deadly weapon, felon in possession of a firearm, illegal weapons sales, using a weapon in self-defense, and using a weapon in a threatening way.


White collar crimes, such as embezzlement, money laundering, extortion, mortgage fraud, tax evasion, public corruption and similar crimes fall under the category of white collar crime.


We have represented clients in hundreds of jury trials. In the criminal cases, many of our clients have been found “NOT GUILTY” in jury trial in all types of cases.
