About me

I am J. Gordon Dees, a native Houstonian and a Lawyer.  I advocate for people and their families when they are confronted with criminal charges.  A criminal charge may put one's liberty at stake and can easily amount to an event that redefines your life.  I am committed to seeing you and your family through this difficult time.  


I am licensed to practice throughout the State of Texas; U.S. District Courts for the Southern, Northern, Eastern & Western Districts of Texas; U.S. Court of Apeals, 5th Circuit; and the United States Supreme Court.


It is my goal to provide the highest quality legal services to my individual and corporate clients and I have the resources to do so.  Thank you.  Gordon

  • Robert James Fickman

    Gordon Dees is an outstanding lawyer who cares about his clients. Gordon is a former chief Felony Prosecutor and the Chair of the Criminal law and Procedure Section of the Houston Bar Association. Gordon and I represented co-defendants charged in with Felony Theft in Fort Bend County. Our clients were accused of manipulating Hewlett Packard's Website to purchase computers for next to nothing. Gordon and I fought side by side for years and finally we both won our client's cases. Gordon is a fine lawyer and a true gentleman.
