"I have over 40 years of criminal law experience, first as a prosecutor and then as a defense attorney. I've continuously been 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 your case. It is as unique as you are, and I believe the harder we work together to discover a defense, the better the results can be." - Paul Schiffer, Senior Attorney
