On this site, people typically find me one of two ways: I direct them here or someone else does. The profile is here for obvious reasons: I want your business. That’s not the question. The question is why I want your business. Moreover, why should you trust me with your business?

 

I’m not a politician. I’m not a salesman. I’m not a carnival barker. I’m not a soothsayer. I’m not a clergyman. And I’m not a magician.

 

I’m a man. Full of the humanity and mistakes that too-often seem to be included in the box of Life; instead of instructions. I have fallen. I have made mistakes. I have stared down the barrel of loss. I have endured the blow and the shock of that loss—three times. I have endured the struggle to rebuild. I have fallen to my knees. I have gotten back up. I have had bad times. I have fought against the urge to live in the past. I’m a man.

 

I spent nearly 15 years working inside the Texas Department of Corrections—the prison system—listening to convicts tell their stories. I learned how to listen for and hear the truth.

 

I was once a young man who knew a change was needed. As a younger man, I sought that change. I surrounded myself with those proverbial “movers of mountains” by a series of simple pauses and objections, all the time preparing myself; then I went to law school. I took with me the pain of my youth and the experience of my previous profession. It was there, in law school, that I began to learn to dress all the stories I have heard in the garment of the law.

 

I learned how to tell my story. That has taught me how to understand yours. How to tell your story as though it were my own. To crawl into the skin of your story and see it through your eyes, and speak it in my voice.

 

So if that is the kind of representative you seek, reach out... let us begin.

Trinidad you're the Man
Isn't the best way to know someone, but being referred to Trinidad was a blessing. You might doubt for a minute when you see his eccentricity but I can assure you from my own experience, there's no one more qualified to represent you. Thank you for your excellent service Trinidad and his para-legal Gloria

"I worked with Trinidad when I was an Assistant District Attorney and he always fought very hard for his clients. I highly recommend him"
Criminal defense Attorney | Mar 02
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"There are three things I respect about Trinidad. First, he is a warrior. The truth is folks, no amount of $$ given to an attorney will make that attorney "fight" more. Either the attorney is a fighter or he is not. Second, I respect Trinidad because he actually cares about his clients. If our clients know we really, no shit, care about them, then we have given them a piece of mind that no one else can give them. Our clients deserve this. Finally, I respect Trinidad because he works his cases from the very beginning. Working cases early gets good results, most commonly dismissals. Trinidad's record of dismissals is absolutely outstanding for an attorney with his years. There are too many attorneys who don't explore all avenues, and let a case get all the way to trial, thinking they can go in and "wing it." Trinidad is a perfect example of "zealous" advocacy, an ideal that all lawyers should aspire to. I am honored to be his friend and colleague."
Criminal defense Attorney | Nov 27
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Trinidad is a top-notch lawyer who fights relentlessly. He is known in Harris County for his professionalism and high grade work product. If you want someone who will zealously advocate for you, Trinidad is the right pick."
DUI and DWI Attorney | Oct 13
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community

Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 21
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Trinidad is a tenacious lawyer with a unique combination of book smarts and street smarts that make him a top notch criminal defense attorney. With Trinidad on your side, you can rest assured knowing that you have a crafty fighter in your corner!"
Criminal defense Attorney | Feb 11
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Big bad Trinidad! Trinidad is a great attorney who cares about his clients and puts their needs first. He will zealously advocate and make sure that justice prevails. I would highly recommend this attorney for any criminal defense matters."

"Trinidad Zamora is a no nonsense lawyer! He is one of the guys that you go to when you want to get your stuff taking care of and taking care of correctly! If Trinidad is your lawyer you can rest easy you are in good hands! I am also proud to call Trinidad my good fiend!"
Criminal defense Attorney | Jan 25
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Trinidad Zamora is someone I am proud to call a friend and colleague. He's a person of strong character and good integrity. He's a determined investigator, and he brings that same detail-minded way of practice to every case he defends. Trinidad is the kind of attorney who comes to court prepared for every conceivable angle that the prosecutor can try, and he too has many a trick up his own sleeve. He's got the keen mind of a scholar combined with the heart of a warrior. And it shows in his courtroom presence and skilled advocacy in front of juries. I don't just know Trinidad; I respect him."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jan 06
