Practice areas

I run and operate The Law Practice of Shamim Ebrahimi ("LPSE"), my Houston-based Criminal Defense Firm. Fundamentally, my practice is dedicated to helping make better the lives of individuals facing criminal charges. I use my knowledge and skills to fight to ensure that neither the police nor the prosecution deprive individuals of their legal rights.


My life-goal has been to help people redeem themselves. Looking back on my life, I have been blessed with the opportunity to learn from my mistakes and the mistakes of others. I have also been blessed with meeting some exceptionally great people who have influenced me for the better. However, relatively speaking, not everyone is as fortunate as his or her neighbor, but this does not mean we should turn our backs. Rather, it is my humble opinion that we should do our part help our neighbors. Whether a neighbor is fortunate or less fortunate does not change the fact that that person is nonetheless our neighbor.

Best Criminal defense lawyer!
I hired Shamim in November to help me with my case of domestic violence. He was able to get my case dismissed and I will now be hiring him to clear this off my record. He is very flexible, and available throughout the week. He answered all my questions honestly and always stayed ahead of everything. From the get go the outcome he had predicted and the steps he said the prosecutors would take all happened. If you are in need of a Criminal defense lawyer Shamim is your man.

Best Houston Expunction Lawyer
I thought my arrest record would clear once my case was dismissed, but that's not the case. I learned that you have to file paperwork to clear your criminal record. After calling a handful of Houston expunction lawyers and learning the average cost of an expunction in Houston is about $1200, it was nice only having to pay $700 for Shamim to clear my arrest record. He is talked me through the process and gave me a final packet as proof of expunction. He's quality.

Best Criminal Defense Lawyer in Houston
Finding Shamim was like fate. An appointed attorney put me on deferred for my theft charge. I was afraid of the system and all the conditions that came along with deferred like checking in, UAs and taking the classes and courses, and so I never went back after leaving the pre-trial department. I finished all the courses and classes and paid all the fees, but was violated for failing to appear and picking up a DWLI. Shamim charged me a really reasonable fee and then worked his magic. He got the failure to appear overturned and theft case dismissed in two settings. Best part, the judge started off by saying he'd give me time-served on the theft case and dismiss the DWLI, but Shamim wasn't having it. Shamim then argued to the judge to dismiss the theft case and give a time served on the DWLI. It was great to watch. Then as Shamim was explaining to me the judge's offer, the judge called out to Shamim that he'd dismiss the theft case and rake time-served on the DWLI. I don't think any other Houston criminal defense attorney would have openly fought that had for such a low fee. Finding Shamim and hiring him was definitely fate. He's an awesome attorney.

Best Houston Marijuana Lawyer and Drug Charge Attorney
I researched a lot of Houston criminal defense lawyers. Shamim was the only one who talked to me personally from beginning to end. It didn't bother him that ask a lot of questions, and he walked me through my marijuana charge from beginning to end. He was really fair with his pricing and even offered a payment plan. I'm glad I ended up hiring Shamim Ebrahimi as my marijuana charge lawyer because he ended up getting my drug charge dismissed. He also helped me get it expunged like it never happened. He's smart, reasonably priced, and really good at walking you through the process.

The right buy for the job!
Other attorneys either quoted me a really high price or didn’t make feel comfortable, but not Shamim. He helped me out big time, for a fair price, and let me pay in installments. It was cool because a lot of court people knew him by his first name. From the get go, he listened and informed. The police stopped me illegally and Shamim fought to make that clear. Thank you!

Great, respectable lawyer
At a time in my life when I needed the law to be on my side, it wasn't, but ShamimEbrahimi was. He made sure that my rights weren't taken advantage of and that I received the justice my family and I deserved. Shamim was concerned and empathetic and he made sure I understood everything, every step of the way.

Great Lawyer
Thanks to Houston Criminal Defense Lawyer,Shamim Ebrahimi and the Law Practice of Shamim Ebrahimi, I can focus on getting my life back on track. Hanging around the wrong people got me caught up, but Shamim was able to preserve my innocence by showing the prosecution they were charging the wrong guy. Also , thanks for price break, now i can get an expunction.

Shamim The BEST
There came a time in my life when I had to delegate the handling of a particular situation to a trustworthy representative of the Law, whom was Shamim Ebrahimi. I want to THANK YOU so much for your time, your patience, and your understanding of the situation. Shamim Ebrahimi, is professional, knowledgeable and treat my case with the up most concern. He was not settling for less, he fought to the end. His communication is key, he made sure I understood exactly what was going on, he sent weekly, and monthly reminders that court is coming up soon. Shamim all around is a great and amazing person, he is down to earth and allows you feel comfortable. I would recommend him to anyone. For all that you have done Shamim, I do highly appreciate you. Thank You

Response from Shamim Ebrahimi August 6, 2014
Despite the circumstances, it was nonetheless a pleasure getting to know you. Just like Mike Tyson needed Constantine "Cus" D'Amato to become a champion, I needed you. Without you, I'm just a guy with a piece of paper arguably worth about $150k. With you, well...I'm a winner. A tip of the hat to you, C.
