Houston Criminal Defense Lawyer

Also Serving the Accused Pasadena, Jersey Village, & Missouri City

If you have been accused of a crime in the state of Texas, aggressive legal representation from an attorney who genuinely cares about your rights, your freedom, and your future is your best bet in navigating the legal system. Criminal arrests and charges are serious matters that can have drastic repercussions to your reputation, your job, your family, and more as well as your ability to move forward in life without a criminal record obstructing future opportunities.

As a Houston criminal defense attorney, Alex Houthuijzen handles various criminal cases from local and state criminal charges to federal misdemeanors or felonies. Alex has a proven record of successfully defending defendants accused of all types of crimes, ranging from DWIs to domestic violence, and more. Alex is well-versed in the intricacies of both state and federal crimes, their respective criminal justice systems, and the steps needed to be taken to devise a legal strategy pursuing an optimum outcome. 


Aggressively Defending State & Federal Crimes

Both state and federal crimes include misdemeanors as well as felonies. However, the Texas criminal justice system differs from the federal criminal justice system in how charges are prosecuted. That means that, if you are charged at the federal level, you will need an attorney who is licensed to practice in federal court and who can stand up to aggressive and tough federal prosecutors. 

Whether you have been accused of a state or federal crime, Alex will stand by your side throughout all the stages of the process, providing you with advice and counsel, ensuring your Constitutional rights are protected, that you are not subjected to unfair or underhanded treatment, and that you have the best possible defense.
