I am a Criminal Defense Lawyer Anywhere in Texas

Many Lawyers Like to Practice Law Only in Their Hometown, But I am an Attorney Anywhere in Texas

Today I went to a case in Fort Bend County, which is about a 45 minute drive from downtown Houston.  A lot of Houston lawyers practice down there, but a lot of Houston lawyers refuse to leave downtown Houston.  I get asked a ton, where do I practice law, so I figured I would answer that question here.

Bottom line, I practice law in Texas.  I will do a case anywhere.  Now realize, if you call me with a case in El Paso, I will quote you, but you probably are not going to like my fee.  I would have to account for multiple airline fees, hotels, meals, rental cars, hours out of the office, etc.  But I have worked all over Texas.

My main practice is Harris County.  I am there on average 4-5 days a week.

Outside of Harris County

Other than Harris, generally, I practice most often in the following counties:

  • Fort Bend County
  • Brazoria County
  • Montgomery County
  • Galveston County
  • Chambers County
  • Liberty County

I also make it out to the following counties maybe a couple of times a year:

  • Jefferson County
  • San Jacinto County
  • Polk County
  • Walker County
  • Grimes County
  • Brazos County
  • Washington County
  • Austin County
  • Waller County
  • Colorado County
  • Wharton County
  • Matagorda County

Those are the most common counties that I get cases from.  And it makes sense if you look at a county map, as those are the counties that are closest to Harris County.  But I do get cases everywhere, so do not be afraid to call me and ask.  For example, this past year I was successful in cases in San Antonio, Tyler, and Corpus Christi, so I will and do travel.

Klegberg County, Born and Raised

The last place that is close to my heart is Kingsville, TX.  I was born and raised in Kingsville, TX which is Kleberg County, so I tend to get a lot of phone calls from there.  And I find myself working as a criminal defense attorney in Kleberg County quite often.  So if anyone ever needs a criminal defense lawyer in Kingsville,TX feel free to call me.  My fees tend to be reasonable as I have family I can stay with, and I don’t typically charge my full travel amount as I can use the trip as an excuse to see my friends and family.  It is always good to go back home, and I enjoy walking into the local courthouse that I drove past for 18 years.

So if you find yourself needing a lawyer in Texas call me at 713-222-2828.  If I cannot help you I am sure that I can find someone in your area that can!
