Board Certified Criminal Defense Lawyer Harris County
Representing the Accused Throughout Houston & Statewide
The Law Offices of Jed Silverman is a criminal defense law firm representing accused people in the Houston area, in Harris County, and throughout Texas. Led by attorney Jed Silverman – a Board Certified Criminal Law Specialist by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization – our firm is knowledgeable, aggressive, and possesses a sophisticated understanding of criminal law. We strive for success in every case we handle, including the full range of state and federal crimes.
Through the more than 3,000 cases our firm has handled, we are committed to going above and beyond for our clients. When we investigate a case, we intensely scrutinize the facts and have come to understand that the information contained in police reports is often quite different from what actually happened at the scene of an alleged crime. Once we uncover the truth, we work hard to put together strategic legal defenses based on the evidence. When necessary, we call upon the services of forensic evidence specialists, private investigators, and other professionals to support a case and challenge the version of events presented by the prosecutor. We leave no stone unturned in pursuing the best results possible for our clients.

What Does It Mean to Work With a Board Certified Specialist?
When criminal allegations put your freedom and future on the line, you want to be sure the lawyer you choose has the experience and skill to make the difference in your case.

Board certification is an achievement held by a select group of lawyers.
