Attorney Profile

The owner of his eponymous law firm, Justin T. Surginer focuses his practice exclusively on criminal defense matters. Located in Houston, Texas, he provides effective advocacy for clients throughout the greater metropolitan area. Admitted to practice before all Texas state courts since 2009, Mr. Surginer is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas.

Mr. Surginer's client base consists of people who have been accused by the state or federal government with having committed misdemeanor or felony offenses, and he tailors his defense strategy based upon the particular set of circumstances surrounding the charge and keeps his clients informed through all stages of their cases. During his career, he has been called upon to defend a variety of charges. They have included driving under the influence of alcohol, homicide, weapons violations, sex crimes, drug possession and distribution, child abuse, theft, disorderly conduct, juvenile offenses, stalking, insider trading, embezzlement, fraud, solicitation of prostitution, kidnapping, violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, domestic violence, assault, and internet crimes such as online impersonation. Mr. Surginer has been able to obtain positive results for many of his clients, whether through dismissals, acquittals, or the negotiation of favorable plea agreements with the prosecution. He also helps people who have already been convicted and who are seeking to have their criminal records expunged.

Majoring in marketing, Mr. Surginer attended the University of Houston as an undergraduate, and he received a Bachelor of Business Administration in 2006. He then went on to pursue his legal education at the Thurgood Marshall School of Law, part of Texas Southern University, and he was awarded his Juris Doctor in 2009.
