Landlord Tennant Dispute
Maverick responded very quickly and was able to draft documents needed for a corporate landlord tenant dispute. Hopefully he will not be needed but I would hire him again if the need arrises.

Dopest Lawyer
Maverick ray is the most humblest dude I have ever met. He is very knowledgeable in the court room and we’ll known that will play out in your favor. Even with all the evidence pointing toward me in my case he was able to get it dismissed through hard work and persuasion he is honestly the beat and this is coming from a person who had the worst in mind he gave me my life back. He never gives up

Humble but Aggressive Attorney
I was harassed by an overzealous police officer and was arrested for a ridiculous charge while on parole. Maverick went the extra mile and got me an outright dismissal. He’s a young lawyer that’s still and up and coming, the sky’s the limit for him. He personally responds to any questions or issues you may have concerning your case. On top of being a great attorney, he’s a down to earth cool person. I would definitely recommend his services.

I hired Maverick to represent my son who was out on an agg robbery charge when he picked up another case for criminal trespassing. Wait did I mention he was on a 2 years deferred when he picked up both theses cases. Maverick got him bonds people said would be impossible to get given the situation. This man is the real deal and to only be 2 years into his career I can only imagine what the future holds for him. I would refer Maverick to any one he's the best Texas has to offer if you ask me and reasonable and affordable he doesn't BS around.

Possession Controlled Substance Not Guilty!
I hired Mr. Maverick to represent my brother back around June or July. My brother had a court appointed attorney that hadn't been working for him for a couple months. Mr. Maverick got him a bond on the first court setting and then when the state would only come at him with 14 years because they were usin his priors my brother and Mr Maverick took it to trial. The state came down some more years but my brother knew Mr Maverick could beat it. They eneded up in trial and even though the wrecker driver saw my brother hit the other car head on and the laws said they seen cocaine and marijuana in my brothers pockets and found some crack and scales and more baggies in his car Mr maverick worked his magic and got my brother off. If i ever have any trouble again I know who i am gonna call Mr Maverick.

Dismissed My Drug Charge
A few months back, the police entered my apartment with a search warrant and arrested me and some of my friends. They confiscated all of our weapons, and large amounts of marijuana and pills. A few weeks later, I hired Mr. Maverick and he was the BEST! He was always at court on time, he always sat and explained everything to me and always made me feel at ease after court. We ended up setting my case for trial because Mr. Maverick said time served and a fine wasn't good enough. A week before trial I got the best call, it was Mr. Maverick telling me that my case was dismissed! I always try and recommend everyone I know to hire Mr. Maverick and will use him in any future cases.

I got charged with a DWI coming home from a bar near the Woodlands. I had been drinking, but did not believe I was unfit to drive. I was pulled over and immediately asked to perform different tests on the side of the highway. I felt that I was doing my best, but the tests were pretty difficult. The office wanted me to do a breath test there too but I didn't want to. I ended up getting arrested for DWI and resisting arrest and they took my blood. The whole time the prosecutors kept wanting me to either go to jail or do a probation. Maverick not only made me feel completely at ease everytime I went to court, but he was took the time to sit down with me and go over the police report, blood results, DWI video, and the video of them taking my blood. I would always wake up extremely anxious for court, but by the time I walked out I realized Maverick would take care of me. He always returned my calls timely and showed up to court on time. We eventually went to trial and the case was dismissed after the trial started. I highly recommend this lawyer to anyone who is charged with a DWI.

Very Persistent
I found Mr. Ray by chance and I was blessed to cross paths. From day one he was very informative and responsive to my questions and concerns. He was able answer all my questions no matter how big or small and at all times of the day. Not only did he respond by phone but also by text and or email. He was very persistent in getting charges against my brother dropped by being persistent and believing in an innocence man . When I tell my accounts of Mr. Ray’s actions people or amazed, that there are good attorneys such as Mr. Ray. He is very professional at all times and I felt that he loved his job and wanted to truly help my brother and not just take money. If you want a lawyer who would fight for your rights, than Maverick Ray is your guy.

The best attorney ever
I hired Maverick a month ago I was very depressed & didn't know what to do I had violated my probation by catching a new case after my meeting with Maverick I felt so relieved although he didn't make any promises he assured me that he would do everything in his power to get me the best outcome. Normally you don't get a bond for violating felony probation he got me one after being in jail for only 1 week. He was very knowledgeable every question I asked he had an answer.. Every time I called him he answered the phone no matter how many times I called & he was always pleasant & reluctant to answer my questions over the years I have worked with plenty lawyers & none got me the results that Maverick has.. Although my case haven't been disposed yet I know for a fact that he will get me the outcome I'm looking for. I will definitely use him every time I get in trouble and refer him to friends family or anyone else.. If you're seeking an attorney that's dedicated & that will work hard on your case as if you we're his own family he's your guy

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!! THEY DO NOT COMMUNICATE PROPERLY!!! (Elizabeth) They will take your funds first and then act as if the service is done properly! She deliberately had an attitude with my husband as he was trying to thoroughly explain where her communication went wrong! They will not provide proper paper work for policy or payments!!!

Unknown Attorney | Jan 12

DUI and DWI Attorney | Mar 21
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Maverick is a fearless advocate who never backs down. He has amassed an incredible amount of victories in his young career. Anyone who hires him is lucky to have him!"
Criminal defense Attorney | Jun 28
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Maverick is certainly an up and coming rising star. But, I just have to set the record straight: he never beat me. What Phil is referring to is that he beat Silverman. I certainly appreciate the compliment, but I can't ever include Maverick in the select few that got lucky and beat me :) Now, is Maverick the next Top Gun? Absolutely! This guy was gunning for me and he was the Harris County District Attorney bright and shining star before he went out on his own. I am happy to have him as a brother in criminal defense and not to have ever had to "switch to guns" against him in a trial. Any client would be lucky to hire Maverick. The sky is the limit for Maverick. Better hire him while he is affordable. I look forward to watching this talented lawyer work his magic. You can be MY wingman anytime."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jun 13
Relationship: Supervised lawyer
"Mark my words. Maverick Ray is one of Houston's criminal defense attorney rising stars. I supervised him when I was a prosecutor at the Harris County District Attorney's Office. He was my intern. I sent him to trial against one of the city's top DWI lawyers, Mark Theissen. I watched Maverick prepare tirelessly for that case. And after a hard-fought courtroom showdown, Maverick earned the distinction of one of only a handful I can think of to have beaten Thiessen in court over the last few years. Mr. Ray is sure to find himself among the distinguished trial lawyers in town. I endorse him without reservation."
