My son was facing 25 to life and was set for jury trial. I had little faith in the lawyer I had paid to represent him. I began to research other lawyers and felt drawn to Mr. Moncriffe. I called him on a Friday morning and he told me to call his office and set an appointment for Sunday. I was surprised to find that he answered his own phone and even more surprised to find that he would make time for an appointment on the weekend. My family and I went to the appointment on Sunday and knew instantly that Mr. Moncriffe was the man we wanted to represent our son. He spent alot of time getting to know our son and our family. We met often on weekends to discuss the details of my son's case. I was amazed at Mr. Moncriffe's honesty. If he said he would call, he would. If I texted him, he would reply, if he told me he would go and see my son, he would go. He did not make any false promises but told us to let him "work." We let him "work" and received the best call of all. Mr. Moncriffe personally called to tell me that he was able to get my son's sentence reduced to 9 months!
We will forever be thankful for Mr. Moncriffe's hard work, for his honesty and for his dedication. Without hesitation, I would recommend Mr. Moncriffe to anyone seeking the best possible criminal defense.

Tyrone Moncriffe track record speaks for itself... Mr. Moncriffe presence in the court room is felt the moment he steps in. This Man demands respect and he gets it! He did a magnificent job in my trial. I know longer have that burden on me anymore. Moncriffe was able to connect with the Jury and give them a visual perspective of how i was falsely accused and the jury found me NOT GUILTY!

I was charged with theft and to me it meant big problems involving getting into college and finding a job. Mr. Moncriffe is an extraordinary lawyer that fought and stuck with me through the trial, and I am now under a PTD because of him! Mr. Moncriffe is an amazing attorney, and anyone would be lucky to have him as their lawyer!

After I experienced what I still deem as my "worst nightmare" my only prayer was to get a lawyer who would fight for me. At the very first meeting with Mr. Moncriffe he assured me that he would get the case dismissed and never once changed his stance. Even before my meeting with him he listened to what I had to say as the case involved my husband who wanted both of us to meet with Mr. Moncriffe and I didn't. He was very empathetic and gave me courage that it would be over with quickly. I was amazed when he scheduled the appointment for a Saturday afternoon which worked perfectly. This man is a man of God as I felt it in my spirit after I left his office. He answers his phone almost all the time and if not, you can rest assure he will return your call before the day is over. He talked to my husband almost like a father would to man who was treating his daughter unfairly. I believe that Mr. Moncriffe stepping out of the "lawyer's role" & into a "father's role" put some sense in my husband's head as he realized that I had someone who was ready to give him the battle of his life. Though it may have been a few words, the message resonated with my husband. I watched Mr. Moncriffe in court and he was just confident, calm & collective. The DA didn't speak to him in the manner that I watched her speak to some of the other attorneys. I watched other attorneys of different races, shake his hand and greet him with such high level of respect. My family would get anxious at times about the case but I'd always assure them that I trusted Mr. Moncriffe and didn't have any doubt that he would do as promised. He got the case dismissed at our 3rd court appearance and it seemed almost effortless. He went confidently to the DA & presented what he had and asked her to dismiss it and without any hesitation, it was done. This man has established himself in the justice system as a respectful and confident attorney and I would recommend him to anyone who needs a good legal representation. May God continue to bless Mr. Moncriffe & give him the "wisdom of Solomon" as he fights for those who seek to be vindicated.

I was charged with 2 misds and to me it meant big problems with Immigration and no job in medical field ever again. Mr Moncriffe fought for me for over 7 months and how happy I was when he got both cases dismissed!!!! He is a great lawyer and he also was very understanding to my difficult financial situation. Many many thank you's!!!!!!

A very fine christian lawyer, reminds me of Job in the bible. He stays in touch w/ you the client and your family. He speaks with you straight forward and ask you to do one thing , be patient and let him work. He hears you out and then goes into battle for you. He dots every i and crosses every t. He even makes a b line and rechecks the District Attorney's work. And even reviews the officer's credibilty and their official report. He's a genuine bull-dog, and walks softly and carrys a big stick. But more than anything a "God fearing man". With that defense how can you possibly go wrong? Top of the line, cool,calm and collective. 2 second degree felonies. Must I say more?

When I first met Tyrone Moncriffe I was scared , preparing my self to be in prison for at least the next ten years ,with two prior convictions , other lawyers told me I could be facing 25-life . From the first day Mr Moncriffe put me at ease . He didn't treat me like a client , he treated me like family. He indeed got me off the hook. Today I'm here at home with my family not finding the words to express my gratitude towards him . I'm grateful that I was represented by Mr Mon criffe , I recommend him for anyone no matter how big or small your case . If you value your freedom , look no further.

I was charged with a misd class A Assault for slapping and punching the administrator at my former job and am a nurse. l hired one lawyer and he would not return my phones for a month. l fired him and started interviewing different lawyers. l searched on this website and finally had a list of 10 good lawyers. l called Mr.Moncriffe and l met with him and interviewed him and l also interviewed a lawyer who was a former prosecutor for 28 years in Criminal courts.
l was teriffied at the thought of having bad lawyer because it meant that l was going to loose my nursing license , apartment and face deportation because l have a green card. l chose Mr. Moncriffe to represent me and we went started working on the case. Every step he would ask me how do l feel and what do l think. l was very informed and we were in constant communication including Saturday and Sunday we were having meetings, we had to constantly assess if we needed to change or adjust anything and everything. The most intimidating part was coming to court and sitting in front of court and being the DEFEDANT!
The second most intimidating part was being constantly watched by the jury and the everybody else in court. The way l talked and walked in the hallway was constantly being watched by the other people and that meant l was not roaming outside during lunch. For people who will read this and they have been charged by the criminal court l would say to them having an excellent lawyer who believes in you and you are working as a team makes a mountain of a difference. l found that in Mr. Moncriffe the lawyer who defended me. The prosecutor had 5 witnesses and 1 police officer and 1 Major assaults and violence detective.
On my side- the defendant l had 1 witness and 1 character witness. As you can see l was outnumbered from the start. This is what makes Mr. Moncriffe an excellent lawyer, the way he asked the questions made the case! Every witness the case was building up and l was feeling nervous and more nervous. at the end l was given a verdict of NOT GUITLY!!! l thanked the lawyer for fighting for me so hard and l stood my ground to fight for what l believed was right. l am forever grateful to the jurors.
The lessons l learned from this experience are 1. if you want to fight your case, fight with a super lawyer by your side Mr. Moncriffe. 2. Dont fight anybody. 3. if you are not sure about your surroundings something is probably not Right and you should get out of there quickly. 4. if your lawyer is not returning your phone calls within 24-48 hours fire him. 5. Always be willing to change your lawyer until you have the right fit! 6. Would you fight for what you believe in with a weak or a strong person? 7. Tell the truth. 8. dont ever lie to your lawyer. 9. Have your facts/ evidence together. 10. There is no price tag am not willing to pay for my freedom.
Court cases are money pits here and there and not to forget time spent is alot going to court as well as planning and constant regrouping. Now that the case is over, l can apply for my citizenship, go back to nursing school and live where l want to live as well as work thanks to this excellent lawyer. Mr. Moncriffe is trustworthy, keeps you informed and he listens to what you need from him. l am so happy and grateful words cannot describe how glad l am that this is over and we WON!!

I want to say that, the day i met attorney Moncriffe, i was over whelmed by the way he treated me. My husband was arested and sent to jail Aug.28th 2012, he had a very high bond and a serious charge. When his court appointed lawyer told me that it would most likely take eight and a half months before a pretrail we panicked. I didnt know what to do, so i called my daughter and was telling her what the lawyer said and she was very upset,she went on the internet to super lawyers and that's where she found attorney Moncriffe. She read to me his credenials and how superb he is, and i was very impressed but sad because i told her that their is no way he'll take us on. She said mom just call and see what he 'll say even if he won't do it maybe he can reccommend another attorney. It took me about 20 minutes before i could get up the nerve to call, then i thought it would be his secretary that i would talk to. W hen i dialed the number and he answered i almost hung up. I told him the situation then i helded my breath and i could'nt believe my ears when he said Maam! i'll do it., i think my heart skipped some beats. When i finnally got to meet him in person at court , he was so pleasant, kind, understanding and reasuring. He is PRICELESS. He got my husband bail down low enough that he was out to see the new year come in at home. I thank god for this attorney. To be continue.....

Attorney Moncriffe has done an exceptional job in my case! He was recommended by a friend of mine. It was the best move that I ever made! I had my doubts and inhibitions, but Mr. Moncriffe assured me that everything would be fine. It was like being in a small sailboat and stuck out in the middle of the ocean with a storm approaching. Things looked gloomy and dark, but the attorney worked his magic and calmed the seas and made the sun appear again. During my case, Mr. Moncriffe was always cool and calm, and never got upset. He solved my case, and got the case dismissed. He is an excellent negotiator with the DA and other attorneys. I highly recommend him, and I will always, always be grateful.

This was our first experience with a criminal defense lawyer. This attorney showed empathy for the plight we were experiencing. We were not treated as if we were guilty before being provided a trial. Mr. Moncriffe was professional at all times. He addressed our questions and concerns regarding the process. He offered information he thought we needed to know. We felt that our case was managed with a very high level of proficiency. He seemed attentive throughout the case. He never left the impression that other cases were more pressing. His presentation of self during our trial was exceptional. He respected us, the court and the overall process. On a scale of 1-10, he rates 10.

About ten months ago, I was arrested by the HPD on a felony charge for brutally assaulting my ex-wife. While I was in jail, my family called several lawyers but nobody wanted to take my case because one it was two felonies, and second the charges were not coming from Harris county; they were coming from a whole different county in Texas, Hidalgo County, about 6 to 7 hours away from Houston, and third it was a couple of days before Thanksgiving. Since the charges were coming from a different county, the Harris county jail couldnt do anything with me but wait until Hidalgo county would come to pick me up. I was in jail for nine days hoping Hidalgo county would arrive to take me to back were the charges were originally from, but I had lost my hope since it was about to be Thanksgiving, it was more than common sence they would come until after the break. By this point my family and I were hopeless; nobody wanted to help me out, until my family went to Mr. Moncriffe. With just ONE phone call that he made, ONE day before Thanksgiving, he got Hidalgo county to drive 6 hours down to Harris county just to pick me up, not only that on Thanksgiving I was bonded out, all thanks to Mr. Moncriffe for IMMEDIATELY working on case as soon as my family went to him.
I knew this case had to go to trial to fight and prove my innocence. Although it was in a different county, Mr. Moncriffe traveled to fight this case for me. During trial, my ex-wife had enough evidence to convict me, and I had no evicence to prove my innocence, all I had was my testimony. He represented me very well in the court, he was was very clear and to point, and help me prove my innocence. He fought and WON this war for me, I dont know how I will ever repay him back for EVERYTHING he did for me and my family, words cant even describe how much I appreciate this man. All I can say is that this man was a true blessing to my life, God knows why he puts certain persons in other peoples path, all I can say is that I am very thankful and blessed for having this man in my life.
P.S. I strongly recommend this man sent from heaven for any trial cases, this is the type of lawyer you do not want to go against with in the court room.

Our son was involved with gang activity and drug distribution. It was his first crime. The prosecutor tacked on a whole bunch of charges that would have sent him away for decades.
Tyronne did a great job and got the charges reduced to a short prison sentence and probation.
Hopefully this will be a learning lesson for my son and he will change himself.

Earlier this year in March of 2012, my son was the victim of a home invasion in which he almost lost his life defending himself. In the aftermath of this my son found himself charged with 2 felony charges. After seeking the services of several attorneys, God led me to Attorney Tyrone Moncriffe. Mr. Moncriffe and his staff was a God send for my son and I. Mr. Moncriffe was very professional. He along with his staff kept us informed. Due to my financial situation, I knew that I couldn't exactly afford to pay Mr Moncriffe always on time. Inspite of that, this Top Notch Attorney dilligently worked my son's case. Today in less than 6 months.... DISMISSED! From the first phone call to Mr. Moncriffe via cellular phone, my calls have never gone unanswered. Polly was there whenever I was discouraged or just needed to talk.
Many thanks and GOD's Blessings upon Attorney Tyrone Moncriffe and his assistant Polly!
Today my son walks free. Our sincere Thanks!
Angel and son

After researching the best attonerys in Texas I hired Mr. Moncriffe to defend me. My case was and still is extremly emotional dealing with the death of my mother. I cannot be more thankful to have found such a blessing under the circumstances. Mr. Moncriffe is a professional and protected me from any added undue stress the D.A. was trying to give. Mr. Moncriffe assured me that the case would be dismissed and it was.
Thank you, Mr. Moncriffe (my attorney for life).

My son had two felony drug cases and one misdemeanor at once, I hired Attorney Tyrone Moncriffe and he was able to get my son deferred adjudication for the two felonies and the one misdemeanor charge was dismissed.

Absolutely one of the Greatest Attorney's in the state of Texas and he is extremely economically reasonable compared to a lot of attorneys, he's truly the BEST!

He is definately a man who's word is his bond!

Mr. Moncriffe is one of the best lawyers out there, my husband was charged with murder and Mr. Moncriffe put his heart into the case. He always kept us informed and was always honest, good or bad news. Mr.
Moncriffe's actions showed us he made this case personal and we thank him from the
bottom of our hearts for all his hard work I would highly recommend Mr. Moncriffe to
anyone for any case. God bless you Mr. Moncriffe.

Mr. Moncriffe is very clear and to the point with what needs to be done to get the case dismissed.
He will guide you in the right direction and when he sees the window to dismiss the case he moves fast.
Did not know what to expect at first, but after he gets his mind set in a direction he executes flawlessly.
Give him room when he is on your defense and you will be pleased.
You do not want to be against him in a courtroom.

Tyrone handled my assault charge in a business-like fashion (the other lawyers I worked with were on civil matters). He understood the facts, protected me from things in the file that would have escalated my anxiety. And, in the end, he convinced the state they did not have a case and it was dismissed. Which is what should have happened -- he never asked me to consider a plea. Thanks, Tyrone.

My experience with Attny Moncriffe was exceptional, I have never been in any trouble, he saved my life! He fought for me like no other and during my trial I really felt like he truly believed in was he was fighting for, he believed that I was innocent and fought for me. I would say he is a GREAT trial lawyer!! And I would recommend him to anyone.

Attorney Moncriffe represented me some years ago, and I still remember how impressed I was with his professional behavior and sense of urgency. In person he's a big guy with big strong hands, and has a father-figure appearance that exudes competence. When he speaks at trial you really feel protected by him as he easily pokes holes into the prosecutor's caseand overshadows the court room. Even the Judge respects him! Attorney Moncriffe is very respectable.

When you have a family member that gets tangled in the criminal justice system you want to be sure you can find an Attorney that you can trust, believe in and has their clients best interest. I began my search when I realized that my daughter could actually go to jail for a very long time. I made a call to Attorney Moncriffe, I gave him the facts of the case. He was attentive to my questions and expressed genuine concern. He was not pushy which gained my respect. I began to seriously consider hiring him to represent my daughter. My greatest concern was could I afford him, I was already obligated. Mind you I am from another state and I had never met the man. No one wants to hire an attorney that they have not had the opportunity to meet. However after having a clear conversation with him I realized that this was the attorney I needed to represent my daughter. I was able to meet him in person and spend time at his office and needless to say I was extrmely impressed by his experience and his directness with my daughter pertaining to her case. He kept the relationship professional. She was able to experince client attorney privleage and he moved the case to resolution qucikly. I would highly recommend this attorney and it has been a privelage to know that he is respected by the judicial community.

In my own words, I am extremely delighted to recommend Attorney Moncriffe. Above all else, he displayed a wealth of understanding and used sound judgment to get my case DISMISSED.

I'm very thankful Mr. Moncriffe was referred to me, to help me fight criminal charges brought upon me. He went above and beyond by always having his doors open for me at home and in the office. He treated me and my family as part of his own family. I would highly recommend Mr. Moncriffe because he works to the extreme and he's very dedicated in helping people with law problems. Because of him, I was found NOT guilty. I am now able to carry on with my life by continuing to work, spend time with my family, and move on. I will never forget him. Thank you Mr. Moncriffe!

Tyrone Moncriffe is someone you can depend on. I was charged with a felony several months ago. I knew that it was imperative that I located an attorney who could represent me fairly while honestly caring about the upcoming decisions that would affect my life for the next several years. I knew I was innocent, but the problem would come in convincing the State of Texas that I wasn’t guilty.
I must say that I had called several lawyers but didn’t get the response I needed or felt comfortable with. Although, I needed to secure someone to represent me immediately I knew that the decision I made could be positive or work adversely against me. After two days of calling and waiting on someone to return my phone calls, I went to a computer and looked up SuperLawyers in Houston and found Tyrone Moncriffe among the list of names offered. He stuck out amidst all of them. I say it was where God placed my hand. I’ll never forget calling about 4:45 p.m. that Friday evening knowing that I had nothing to lose. I received a call on Saturday but had stepped away from my phone. Returning about 5 minutes later I discovered a missed call and retrieved the message left. To my surprise it was Attorney Moncriffe’s office. His receptionist left his cell phone number and directed me to call it at my convenience.
Needless to say, I called immediately. I explained the urgency of having someone that would be dedicated to my case and prayed that he’d respond favorably. Somehow, Attorney Moncriffe seemed to have heard the deep cry of pain that not only I felt but also the sense of uncertainly as to how this all could have happened. He listened intently and said I’d be welcome to come to his office. I knew that he was different from the start and I came to find out even more so upon my first visit.
Attorney Moncriffe is serious about his work. He enjoys what he does because he sees a great need to serve others who desperately need representation, guidance, assurance and a truthful attorney willing to fight for his clients. He was at all times confident and assured me from the beginning that he sensed my sincerity and would fight to have the felony charge dismissed. I can’t even begin to describe the feeling I had after hearing the words that Attorney Moncriffe said he’d fight to get months ago, “CASE DISMISSED”.
I can’t begin to thank God enough for leading me to an attorney who felt that it was a privilege to serve me and to do it with honesty, integrity and a dedication beyond belief. Tyrone Moncriffe is beyond superb, he is REMARKABLY AMAZING.
