About me

I currently meet weekly with a group of young fathers at a local high school as a mentor, offering myself as a resource as a lawyer, father, student and husband.  We have very candid discussions regarding their roles as a high school student and as a new father, and in some instances, as a husband.  It is very rewarding to me to be able to help these young men in any manner I can.


2009-2010 also marked my first attempt as a politician when I ran for a judicial position in Harris County in the 2010 primary elections.  It was a great experience and it energized me to begin my new solo practice.

  • Daniel Amando Ruiz

    I endorse this lawyer. I met Javier in the Houston area while working against him on a matter. I later found out we knew many of the same attorneys and friends and that we were from the same home town. Javier is a skillful yet practical attorney who can help you find the best solution despite any obstacles presented, all while staying focused on his clients' best interests.
