The PDO offers an array of services to members of the private bar, for both appointed and hired cases. We want to improve the quality of the defense bar for every accused person, not just our own clients.

We offer trial support from our appellate division, immigration advice regarding consequences of guilty pleas, and more.

Feel free to come by the office in person or call (713) 368-6700 if you need assistance. We are here to help.

I want to thank PD’s office for their tremendous help in my murder trial this week. They rode to the rescue on two separate issues and provided valuable input and case law. Thank you so much.

The office maintains an online database of professional witnesses frequently used by the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, for purposes of trial preparation and impeachment of state witnesses.

"Call Appellate"

When an Assistant District Attorney gets in a bind and needs assistance about the law, they "call appellate."

Now all defense attorneys have our own way to "call appellate." Call the main line, (713) 274-6700, and say you need assistance. Appellate lawyers will do their best to help.
