I recently found myself in a terrifying criminal legal situation and David saved me. I was referred to him by an attorney friend of mine that I have known since grade school, who also happens to be a judge. He was unable to help me because of the county where I was charged, so he referred me to David. He spoke very highly of him and gave me his contact information. Because I trust this man dearly, I immediately called David for help. I now know why my friend referred me to David without hesitation and with such a high recommendation. David was an angel from the get go. He returned my first call immediately and assured me that I would be okay; that I would get through this matter. I was scared, actually frantic. He calmed me down with his soothing, nonjudgmental demeanor. He felt like a friend, though I hadn’t even met him in person yet. He walked me through what was going to happen and what I needed to do. He defended me and I got through it. The charges were dropped. I am BEYOND HAPPY with the outcome and I HIGHLY recommend David Kiatta. I am so glad to have found him.
Two years ago I was charged with a felony crime out of state that could have caused me a significant amount of jail time David Kiatta's knowledge prepared me for every aspect of my case he was always direct and to the point with what I needed to do and how he was going to prepare my defense. I am not going to lie it was very stressful for me not knowing how the case would turn out and I was worried up until the final moment of sentencing but David did an outstanding job defending me and I ended with probation and no jail time. One thing to know us it is not cheap to have a great attorney fight for your freedom but he was worth every dollar I had to spend.
David defended me in a highly personal criminal matter. From the very beginning he made time in a moments notice to meet with me and discuss my case. The false charges leveled against me were serious in nature and challenged my personal integrity. From that first meeting on David assured me time and time again that he believed I was telling the truth about not commenting this crime. David's professional integrity and knowledge of the law was outstanding throughout the whole process. David personally walked me through each step. Beginning with the interview with the police, the polygraph interview, the grand jury proceedings and how they operate, turning myself in to the sheriffs office after the incitement and what I needed to do there after. David was there, ready and willing to plead my case at each and every pre-trial hearing. He relentlessly pursued my case with the DA's office pointing out inconsistency of the interviews of my accuser. This eventually lead the assistant DA to interview the accuser them self, which they then realized the inconsistency of the accusations. This all lead to the charges being totaly dismissed during the pre-trial process.
Mr. Kiatta has helped me so much even after the court matters were finalized. He has helped me additionally with issues that need to be approved via the court for my probation. He is one of the best lawyers you could have on your side. I highly recommend him if you are in need of an exceptional lawyer that will stand by you.
I highly recommend Mr. Kiatta. He is well versed in the law and will do an excellent job for you. He kept me updated and responded promptly to all of my questions. He is worth every penny that I paid him. I couldn't have found a better lawyer. Roger.
I found myself in a devastating situation where I needed to hire a criminal defense attorney. Not knowing, nor understanding what was before me and my family, David guided my wife and I through the process; from what to expect to how to handle it to teaching us patience. David immediately handled the arrest by bringing a level of calm yet decisive / clear action oriented attention to a very stressful and unknown situation for us. When the issue of the bond came up, he recommended an outstanding, respectful and experienced bondsman who made the situation very manageable. When a private investigator was needed for the case, he once again provided an excellent recommendation who managed the case with the same level dedication as David. But the uniqueness of David started from my first meeting. David listened to me and took an interest in my situation. Legally, his experience from both sides of the court room gives David a unique perspective and insight which became unquestionably clear as more facts of the case became available. It is this experience that helped make the process much less painful, efficient and smooth. David worked very hard to keep me posted and advising me / explaining the next steps (how the slow wheels of justice work) which helped maintain a level of calmness and still assuring we were on the right path. David cleared my name both in the criminal and civil courts with a decisiveness and dedication that made it feel like he was personally putting everything on the line. However, David’s personal quality was just as impressive as his legal expertise. Personally, David’s compassion took a personal connection (and still maintains that personal connection) to help me recover from the demons that devastated me for years. He provided references of individuals that held the same high values and moral standards David does to help me back to recovery. In today’s age, what an incredible and unique quality to have. I’m not only cleared from a legal perspective but I’m cleared and maintaining the clearness from the demons that haunted me for years. David help put me on that path. I highly recommend David for not only his legal expertise / level of professionalism but because he cares about his clients with a uniqueness of compassion which is rarely found.
David was able to handle multiple matters for me in three different Texas jurisdictions. He is very professional and capable of handling complex cases. He always kept me up to date and informed as to the status of the cases. David is very aggressive/persistent in plea negotiations and I was pleased with all of his work in my cases. I recommend him to anyone living in South Texas.
David did an excellent job of handling my sons case. David was compassionate and kept my sons best interest in mind as he worked with him to come up with a solution to the issues he was dealing with. I believe that the case was handled professionally and David did a great job of wotking with my son to the best possible relolution to the charges he was facing. I would highly recommed David's services.
I referred a client to David Kiatta and he handled the case flawlessly. Would not hesitate to refer a client to Mr.Kiatta.
I was facing my second DWI charge in Harris County when I met David Kiatta. I was looking at jail time and other severe punishment for my actions. Mr. Kiatta knew I needed help. He took it upon himself to get me into a rehabilitation facility. This was only the first step of many that David Kiatta took to help me. He convinced the judge that treatment was the best option for me and I was allowed to leave the state for three months. When I was finished with my treatment, Mr. Kiatta once again went above and beyond. My final sentencing in Harris County for DWI 2nd was time served and court fees. NO jail time, and NO probation.There is NO WAY I would be where I am today without David Kiatta. He will fight for your rights and he will work to get you what you deserve. He is an incredible attorney, mentor, and friend. He is still, to this day, an important part of my continuing recovery.
