Attorney Profile

 I have over 40 years of criminal law experience, first as a prosecutor and then as a defense attorney. Recognized by Houston's legal community for my comprehensive approach to criminal defense and my trial advocacy skills, I work tirelessly to defend every client. My office thoroughly investigates each case, and if a trial is necessary, I utilize my skill in the courtroom to present a vigorous defense. 

Since each person asking me for help is unique, there is no "cookie-cutter" approach to his or her case. Your case is as unique as you are, and I believe the harder we work together to discover a defense, the better the results can be. 

Your criminal defense effort should begin the first moment you learn you are under investigation. If you are the target of an investigation, or you have been arrested, do not talk to the police without first consulting an attorney. 

At the Law Office of Paul Schiffer, our philosophy is simple. We believe in thorough case preparation and aggressive advocacy at every stage of the legal process. If you have a serious problem, you should you get a serious lawyer. Our firm will defend you every step of the way.
