An excellent criminal defense attorney
We interviewed 6 attorneys before hiring Mr. Cox to defend a possession of marijuana case. From the moment we met and spoke with him, we were confident that Mr. Cox was the right choice. He took the time to realistically explain the potential outcomes of the case, both best and worst case scenarios, and answered all of our questions, on numerous occasions, even before we hired him. Mr. Cox has a direct and "straight up" manner and demonstrated genuine care and integrity in his interactions with us. He is well known and respected in the judicial and legal community in Fort Bend County---we saw this ourselves when we appeared in court with Mr. Cox. Through Mr.Cox's work and handling of our case we were fortunate to have had the best possible outcome of my son's case. Even without this great outcome, we would unreservedly recommend Lee Cox as legal counsel---he did a fantastic job for us and was a true pleasure to work with.

Excellent attorney!
Lee is very knowledgable and excellent at what he does!!! I went thought 2 attorneys before getting him through his buddy Mark Thiessen which I must say is also a great attorney! If you want excellent representation I would definitely recommend Lee. Always on time, courteous, and guided me the whole way like I was family. Looking forward to getting early termination on my probation and I will definitely have Lee represent me! Thanks Lee for all your help!!!

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Cox did a great job in my case. He was professional, courteous and is knowledgeable. He always returned my call and emails. He helped guide me through the process. He did all he could to help make sure this would not stay on my record long term. I would definitely use him again and appreciate all he did for me.

Great
I do not plan on getting in trouble with the police again but god forbid if I did I would only hire Mr. Cox in Fort Bend. I hired Mr. Cox for 3 charges on 2 separate incidents and there was nothing else he could’ve done better. I had 1 felony and 1 misdemeanor charge on same instance which resulted in the dismissal of the felony. I had to take the misdeamor charge as guilty but I was more than happy with that as it doesn’t affect my future as much as the felony would’ve. My second incident I hire Mr. Cox was amazing and quite frankly I was amazed that it’s getting dismissed by the 2nd court date only. He’s awesome perhaps the best in Fort Bend in my opinion. 100% recommend him to everyone. He will get you the best outcome possible. But my genuine advice would be, just don’t get arrested because that sucks.

Excellent defense
I hired Mr. Cox to defend me when I was accused of felony tampering with evidence during a traffic stop. He provided extremely professional and competent defense and charged a very fair price for his services. He was very personable in the courtroom and always kept me up to date with my case. Ultimately, the felony charge I was facing was dismissed without a trial. I thank Mr. Cox and his colleagues for their professionalism and punctuality in handling my legal issues and will contact him first if I ever need legal defense or advice in the future.

Wonderful Lawyer
Lee handled my son's case and he was a true professional that was able to get the case dismissed! From our first meeting which was after hours as he waited for my son to be released we knew he was the right person for us. He showed a genuine interest in our situation, was easy to work with and laid out a detailed course of action which indicated he was very experienced in this type of matter. We will be forever grateful to Lee and his staff and highly recommend them.

Best Choice For Legal Representation
Attorney Lee Cox is an exceptional attorney that would be an ideal choice of representation for anyone needing help with legal issues. From the most complex cases down to the most minimal of needs, Mr. Cox has demonstrated to be an expert in his field who conducts himself in a professional and respectful manner. I have had the pleasure on two separate occasions to work with Mr. Cox and both times my expectations were exceeded, ultimately resulting in the dismissal of my case. He utilizes his many years of experience in law as well as his abundant professional connections and resources to ensure his clients receive the results they are looking for with as little chaos as possible. He was able to essentially erase a terrible mistake I made from my personal record that could have otherwise caused major problems professionally and personally. I would recommend Lee without hesitation to anyone who has the unfortunate circumstance of needing legal representation.

Case Dismissed! Terrific Fort Bend County defense attorney
I had a tough and tricky case which could have negatively affected my future. After consulting with several lawyers, I was shown a range of suggestions and outcomes, most of which were unfavorable or even frightening. Lee Cox shared strategies that demonstrated his intention to fight for the best outcome possible, and the choice to hire him was the easiest part of my case. Lee is a seasoned, honest, intelligent, and a genuinely personable attorney who quickly produced a remarkable result for me. It is obvious that he is highly regarded in Fort Bend County as both a first-rate trial lawyer and well-liked member of the legal community. Having Lee represent me was easily one of the best decisions of my life. If you find yourself in any kind of trouble in Fort Bend County, I would wholeheartedly recommend that you retain the services of Lee Cox immediately. Thank you Lee!

Great Lawyer!!!!!
Mr. Cox handled my case with professionalism and understanding. He fought hard for me when most lawyers would have given up. I will forever be indebted to him for the job he did. Case dismissed!!!!

Great Attorney
Dear Mr. Cox, It is with great privilege that I send this small note to thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping my son in rightfully having his case dismissed for possession. For months, as his mother, I felt as if I had been under water, trying to swim to the top. I can finally breathe a big sigh of relief knowing that my son, an honor student, and one who struggles with anxiety, will not have to worry any more over this issue. I commend you on your professionalism, and dedication to his case. I will gladly recommend you to anyone who is in need of a great lawyer.

Thank you Mr. Cox
Mr. Cox really knows his stuff. He helped my son with a MIP charge. My son was only present at the alleged incident and did not have access to the items the officer stated he had in his possession. Thanks again for your quick work.
