How to Choose the Best Houston Criminal Defense Lawyer
If you or a family member faces a criminal charge, you should know how to choose the right criminal defense attorney in Houston to represent you and protect your legal rights.
Are you or a loved one being investigated for a crime, or have you already been charged?
First, you should understand exactly what kind of criminal charge you face.
For instance, is it a criminal charge for child pornography, a child sex crime, online solicitation or family violence? Also, is the charge a misdemeanor or a felony, with a felony being more serious? Regardless, you want the defense attorney who has the skill, knowledge and experience in dealing with your charge.
Here are the top qualities and services you should look for when hiring the best criminal defense attorney in Houston possible for your case:
Experience and Expertise
When it comes to lawyers, not all experience is the same. Our law firm has experience for all of the criminal charges we mentioned above, as well as others. We have years of hands-on work dealing with a variety of such cases.
Here at the Neal Davis Law Firm, we have a proven track record — as evidenced by our success in resolving our clients’ criminal cases. We frequently have cases dismissed, and are passionate about trying cases when necessary.
Ample Awards & Honors
The Neal Davis Law Firm has been awarded a Tier 1 ranking in 2019 as one of the best law firms in the Houston area by the Best Lawyers in America.

Comfortable Law Firm Offices
You also may want to consider a law firm’s offices to understand the work and client environment. We have learned that clients do not like the impersonal nature of downtown office buildings or the hassle with downtown parking. Neither do we. That’s why we bought our own office in the Houston’s scenic Heights district, at 1545 Heights Boulevard. From there, we serve clients who live in Houston, Harris County, Fort Bend County and Montgomery County. We are just a few minutes from downtown in an area where there are several smaller law firms.
At our law office you will find a friendly and helpful staff ready to assist you — and to put you first when it comes to your case.
Strong Communication Skills
Take time to get to know your potential lawyer. What are their awards? Are they Board Certified? What do their peers say about them? What do their clients say? What types of cases have they handled? What has been their success in handling them? How many cases HAVE THEY ACTUALLY TRIED?
