When it comes to high-profile federal litigation and complex white collar crimes, our Houston criminal defense attorneys provide unparalleled legal counsel through every stage of our clients’ cases. Founded by Dan Cogdell, an attorney known by his peers as a “Texas trial legend” who has tried such renowned cases as the Enron litigation (where he secured a “not guilty” verdict for his client), our firm is positioned to deliver results. In fact, we often solve problems other lawyers can’t. It’s what we do.

Our entire team is focused on securing the best result for every client we represent. Because we coordinate in such a manner as to allocate our resources and optimize our workflow, we can effectively handle criminal cases ranging from DWI all the way to nationally-publicized government fraud. Dan Cogdell typically applies his unique skill set to federal white collar cases and we will work together as needed to provide the highest quality counsel.
