Luis Baez is an experienced trial attorney and courtroom advocate. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Luis focuses his criminal defense and personal injury practice in Harris and surrounding counties.

Prior to doing defense work, Luis was a felony-level prosecutor at the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office where he was responsible for prosecuting serious felony offenses like aggravated assault, manufacture and delivery of controlled substances, and cases involving physical and sexual abuse of children. From the early stages of a criminal investigation all the way through trial or sentencing, Luis knows the ins and outs of the life of every type of criminal case.

He was also a part of the District Attorney’s “Vehicular Crimes” division where he investigated and prosecuted intoxication assault and intoxication manslaughter cases involving dangerous combinations of motor vehicles, drugs or alcohol use, and serious bodily injury or death. During his time with the District Attorney’s office, he was able to try over 30 cases in front of either judge or jury. He also spent time training and teaching newer prosecutors the skills necessary to ethically prosecute misdemeanor cases, including driving while intoxicated and domestic abuse cases.

Luis also has significant experience litigating different types of civil cases. His first job after graduating law school from Michigan State University in 2014 was at a law firm in Houston, Texas. While there, he represented both plaintiffs and defendants in commercial litigation cases and employment-related claims in both state and federal court. He also represented victims in personal injury cases involving workplace injuries and injuries caused commercial vehicles like delivery trucks and 18-wheelers. He also has trial experience when it comes to personal injury cases and plaintiffs’ work.

Luis discovered his passion for the courtroom and advocacy while he was a high-school student at J. Frank Dobie in the Houston area. He was a member of the speech and debate team and also became the national president of the Health Occupations Students of America. In undergrad at Texas State University, Luis was the president of the speech and debate team, competed in debate tournaments across the country, and was selected to attend an annual debate tournament at Oxford University in Oxford, England.

During law school, Luis continued to work on his advocacy with the mock trial team and his research and writing skills as an articles editor with the Michigan State Law Review. He also was a teaching assistant for Professor Adam Candeub’s Administrative Law course. He has had several articles published in different academic journals and has also written legal articles related to competitive e-sports and the trading card industry.

Luis works to zealously represent his clients charged with criminal offenses and clients who have been injured or wronged through the negligence or fraud of others. He is an active member of the Montgomery County and Harris County Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Association and the Texas Trial Lawyers Association.

Case dismissed!!
My sister needed an attorney who can understand her background and situation! We found it with Mr Luis who is partner with Mr Foley. They listened and worked with her! Communication is key. She followed Mr Luis expert advice and her case was DISMISSED within 3 months!! He updated us where we’re at in the process. He was honest and very professional by not giving her false hope but tirelessly working to get her case dismissed! Goal was achieved!!!

Luis went above and beyond to assist me with multiple cases I had put on me. With dealing with the legal system for the first time in my life he made me feel comfortable about the whole situation and worked diligently on my case and I genuinely felt like he cared.

Willing to Try what other Attorneys refused
I was accused of electronic harassment after trying to collect a debt from a dead beat. As a licensed Professional being arrested would ruin my career but every Law Firm I contacted said the same thing, " They wouldn't help me unless I submitted to arrest EXCEPT for Mr. Baez. Mr Baez made several attempts to have the charges dismissed before I had to go through the embarrassment of being arrest for the first time at age 60. Mr Baez did everything I ask but the DA wouldn't budge. Eventually Mr Baez and the,Webb Firm attorneys were able to get my case dismissed and eventually I will have this incident expunged from my record. The firm did everything I requested and even when I misunderstood what was covered in my contract, they were patient enough to explain the services I had paid for. Mr Baez has a great understanding of the DA's. Office because if his past experience and in the court room he was able to get me in and out of the pretrial procedures quickly because of his experience. This ordeal will be behind me soon and it was handled with dignity that I am not sure I would have gotten with other firms in the local area.

Case Dismissed
Luis was appointed to represent me by the court. Although court appointed lawyers are known to have a bad rap, Luis was a professional and took his job serious. Luis got my case dismissed for a charge that carried a maximum sentence of 2 years. Highly recommended.

Luis Baez
I would recommend Luis Baez for any of your criminal defense needs. He was Upfront, honest and continued to communicate the best needs for my defense. Most importantly, he had the charges dropped after a lengthy court process. Thank you Luis for your integrity and being there when I needed you.

Best man for the job!
I couldn't have chosen a better attorney. Contentious, diligent, knowledgeable, and communicative is how I describe the defense I was provided.

Car accident representation
My husband was hurt in a car accident. Our daughter referred Luis to us because he successfully represented her after she was injured in a car accident. From the moment we contacted Luis he informed us about what to expect and we knew we hired the right attorney to handle this matter. He was always very professional, always took his time to answer all of our questions, always kept us updated and referred us to the right medical professionals to insure that my husband got the right treatment for his injuries. We would definitely use Luis in the future and gladly refer him!
