Born and raised in Houston, I am dedicated to defending the criminally accused in my local community. Before entering into private practice, I served as an assistant district attorney with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. This experience gave me an invaluable understanding of the trial process and the strategies used by prosecutors, which now helps me build comprehensive and effective defenses for my clients.
I am committed to providing my clients with outstanding representation and aggressively defending their rights no matter what charges they face. I was honored to be selected for H Texas Magazine's list of Houston's Top Lawyers for 2011, 2012, and 2013, and I also received the Avvo Clients' Choice Award for 2012.
I proudly represent clients in Sugar Land and the greater Houston area, and offer a free case evaluation to potential clients. Visit my website to learn more: www.khawajalaw.com.
