“Innocent Until Proven Guilty”
A principle at the heart of our justice system
In a world where criminal justice can sometimes feel skewed, where the innocent can be overwhelmed by forces beyond their control, you need someone who will not only fight for you but fight with you.
Law-abiding Americans are facing alarming challenges. Entrapment, intimidation, and the sheer force of state power can push individuals to confess to crimes they didn’t commit or financially paralyze those who dare to stand against unfounded charges.
For over 25 years , Neal has been that unwavering advocate for his clients. From arguing landmark cases before the U.S. Supreme Court to defending those falsely accused, he understands that justice is about more than laws and regulations. It’s about compassion, fairness, and fighting to make sure that the principle of “innocent until proven guilty” is more than just a slogan.
Based in Houston, Texas, the Neal Davis Law Firm handles all types of criminal cases across Harris County and statewide.
Neal Davis founded his defense law firm after more than a decade of working with legendary criminal defense attorney Dick DeGuerin.

A Criminal Defense Lawyer You Can Trust
More than a conviction, it’s a life sentence
Even without a conviction, a Texas criminal record can dramatically and negatively reshape your life. It’s more than a blot on your record—it’s a domino effect that may upset your life in ways you hadn’t imagined:
Many employers may hesitate to hire you, regardless of your qualifications.
The dream of adopting a child may become overly complex or impossible.
Your right to possess firearms could be denied indefinitely.
Any subsequent offenses can trigger significantly harsher penalties.
With a record, you may find yourself barred from obtaining a healthcare license, such as a nurse license — even a misdemeanor conviction can block your path.
Your chances to secure or maintain custody of your children could be at risk.
Your driving freedom could be removed, hindering mobility.
Your immigration status may be endangered, potentially leading to deportation.
Your aspirations for higher education might be cut short as institutions may reject your application.
Prospective landlords may turn you away, and searching for a home can be incredibly challenging.
