About me

Brandon Shane Sims is an experienced criminal defense attorney serving the Greater Houston area, where he spent six years prosecuting a broad range of serious misdemeanor and felony cases.

Brandon left the District Attorney’s Office in May 2013 and began his criminal defense practice with a prominent criminal defense firm in the Greater Houston area.

Since making the transition from prosecutor to criminal defense attorney, Brandon has vigorously defended individuals facing criminal charges. In 2014, Brandon established his own law firm, The Sims Law Firm PLLC, where the law practice is completely dedicated to defending those accused of Municipal, State, and Federal criminal charges.

Upon retaining our legal representation we promise to immediately search for the truth in your case, which is often different from what the Government believes the facts to be.

We are committed to outworking the prosecution by thoroughly investigating the facts of the case from its inception.

This means we immediately begin to conduct our own thorough investigation of your case by issuing subpoenas for relevant records, videos, audio tapes, etc. and contacting witnesses that may be able to aid us in your defense. We will conduct legal research regarding all relevant matters that have arisen or may arise in your pending criminal matter.

Upon determination of all the relevant facts in your case, we will provide an objective analysis of your criminal case and make a recommendation as to the best course of action.

No matter what course of action you elect to take, we will passionately defend you against the pending criminal charges until the conclusion of the case.

Our law firm recognizes that there is no greater responsibility than representing an individual whose freedom is hanging in the balance. We do not take this lightly.

We understand that facing criminal charges can be frightening, but as an experienced trial lawyer and tireless advocate he will guide you through the criminal justice system towards obtaining a favorable result.
