Get the Right Kind of Experience
The complex criminal justice system was established to maintain individual rights and protect public order. An amazing number of steps occur in the arrest to sentence process.
If you face criminal charges, it is a significant advantage to be represented by an attorney who has extensive experience in a number of key positions within the criminal justice system. I am attorney Thomas M. Henderson, P.C., a Houston, Texas, criminal defense lawyer who worked as a special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and also served as an assistant district attorney for the Harris County District Attorney's Office before entering private practice.
Put my experience to work for you. Schedule an initial consultation with me by calling 713-364-0697 or toll free at 800-842-6905. You should also feel free to email me to schedule an appointment.
The insight gained from my previous work experience is a great asset in my current role defending individuals against everything from drunk driving charges to felonies and federal crimes. Among other things, it allows me to educate my clients regarding the complex tactics that are used at all stages of the criminal justice process.
My work as an FBI agent provides me valuable insights into the investigative methods used to arrest and convict criminals. I immediately recognize if evidence has been obtained illegally and can prevent it from being used in court; I'm able to anticipate further investigative measures that may be used; and I know how to conduct my own investigations and interview witnesses to build a strong defense.
As a former prosecutor, I have a thorough understanding of what is required to cross the threshold from arrest to conviction. This helps me identify weaknesses in the state's case and allows me to negotiate with prosecutors from a position of strength.
You Can Benefit From My Understanding of the Criminal Justice System
In addition to my unique qualifications, my clients have stated that they appreciate my open and honest communication style. My main objective is to minimize the impact of criminal charges on your life. At the same time, I help my clients set realistic expectations early in the process. It is a disservice to anyone facing criminal charges for a lawyer to knowingly overpromise an expected outcome.
My entire legal team is highly responsive to each client's needs, from the initial consultation through the resolution of a case. I place an emphasis on clear, concise communication delivered in a timely fashion, and I keep clients fully informed on the options available to them.
Whenever possible, I work to negotiate a settlement and avoid a trial. If a fair agreement cannot be reached, however, I am an experienced litigator who is always prepared to advocate for you in court.
