I have argued a case in front of the Texas Supreme Court. I recently won a case affecting DWI cases across the State in front of the Court of Criminal Appeals. I’ve handled literally hundreds of criminal cases. I trust juries. I go into every case my firm takes on assuming we will have to try the case to a jury. This preparation very frequently leads to dismissal of the case. I have tried over 60 jury trials, with the vast majority leading to a not guilty verdict for my client. In 2017, I tried 17 jury trials, leading to 13 verdicts of not guilty or the case ending in a mistrial due to errors on behalf of the State. It will be difficult to find an attorney more driven or dedicated to their clients  

When I'm not in court, you will frequently find me fishing, boating, and spending time with friends and family in the Galveston area.

Excellent attorney
He and his staff went the extra mile on my case which resulted in a dismissal. Hope I never need him again but I’d hire again in a heartbeat.

Hands down best lawyer in the area
Extremely Professional and up front about it all. Spent 2 1/2 years on my case and not once did Mr. Krieger budge or venture from the desired outcome of winning my case. We were offered a terrible deal and he immediately turned it down and kept fighting and at the end of it we won. If you want a lawyer who is reasonable, personable and just hands down good at what he does then this is your lawyer. The other thing I took note of was when he walked in the court room other attorneys sought him out to speak with him or discuss different things, in my book that speaks volumes to Mr. Krieger’s character and professionalism. If you want to win then choose Dan Krieger!!

Professional and dependable
Attorney Dan Krieger was very professional and dependable. He was also very knowledgeable about the laws and regulations pertaining to my case. Mr Krieger was unbelievably aggressive towards the judges and prosecutors, challenging every piece of evidence that they presented against me. He remained persistent and consistent throughout my case. He communicated with me every step of the way, texting and emailing me way more often than I expected. Mr. Krieger showed me a true example of exemplary service!

lawyers with integrity are hard to find
I am so hard to deal with from all the demands I fight. I have mental problems, anxiety, PTSD, alcoholism I've even had mental relapses that ended me up in the mental ward. Dan has empathy, I just want the world to have more empathy. I'm working on being a step in the direction of empathy.

The best there is for sure!!
Dan is definitely the BEST there is! He’s amazing at what he does and guides you through every step and takes the time to answer any questions you have. Very knowledgeable. I had a panic attack one day and he literally walked me through it and calmed me down. I hate being in trouble EVER and I was wrongly accused of something. I literally don’t even have a speeding ticket on my record. I will always and forever use him if I ever need him and recommend him to anyone and everyone that needs a lawyer! Very professional and knows his stuff!

Daniel Krieger
Mr Kreiger and his staff did an excellent job representing my brother in-law. He had three charges against him. Mr. Krieger was able to get two of them dropped and made a deal on the remaining one, without going to trial. The DA didn't have a chance! I highly recommend him and his firm.

Great lawyer and staff
Dan and his folks did a great job with my assault case. My ex claimed I had injured her. I hadn’t. I felt like the whole system was set up to bury me. Dan got me out of trouble and showed what a liar she was. Highly recommend him

Awesome Lawyer and staff
I had a wonderful experience with Dan and his staff. They were caring and compassionate. I got charged with aggravated assault with deadly weapon and he got it DISMISSED!!!! This was a difficult situation in my life and he and his staff helped me through it. I would highly recommend hiring Dan to anyone.

Exceeded my expectations
Dan and his staff pulled a miracle off with my cases. I was charged with two felony cases, scared, and afraid I was going to lose everything. It took some time and a lot of work, but both of my cases were totally dismissed. He fights for his clients.
Posted by Joseph | February 22, 2013
Did a great job on my case
I researched several attorneys before going with Dan. I'm glad I met with him. Within 5 minutes of meeting him, he had asked more questions than most of the other lawyers that I had met with. His experience and calmness made me far more at ease. His approach to the case was detailed and he was able to get it dismissed, which was far different than what I thought was going to happen.

Great lawyer
I would highly recommend Dan on either a family or criminal case. He listened carefully to me and was able to pick out issues that I hadn't considered. He was able to get my case dismissed and fix a messy divorce situation. Thanks Dan!

Dan was very helpful and responsive to our case. He was easy to talk to and able to bring our case to a positive resolution. I'd recommend him.

Needs to work on his own issues or focus on clients
Seems the attention to detail for the firm is gone. Spends more time in the bars now in and around Texas City, League City and Kemah than in court. Not just alcohol thats the problem. Stories of meeting young ladies daily behind his wifes back that detract from the case that should be their focus. Divorce cases with them wouldnt seem right, neither would DUI’s You kind of get what you pay for I guess though here

Criminal defense Attorney | Apr 14
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Dan is an amazing criminal defense attorney. I've experienced first-hand his commitment to clients and passion in representing them. Additionally, he works hard and sacrifices his time in the development of other criminal defense attorneys."
Unknown Attorney | Mar 19
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"An excellent lawyer who treats clients with patience, care, understanding, and utmost professionalism - an even better person and I wholeheartedly recommend for future services."
DUI and DWI Attorney | Oct 06

"I endorse this lawyer."
Criminal defense Attorney | Apr 18
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer without reservation. I have known Dan since I was a prosecutor and we handled cases on opposite sides. Dan is very smart and compassionate. He really cares about his cases, and the countless positive outcomes reflect both his skill in the court room and relationships with his clients, DA's, judges and court staff. Dan is a true asset to the defense bar."
Criminal defense Attorney | Mar 15
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"Dan Krieger is an outstanding attorney in the areas of both criminal defense and family law. Mr. Krieger's experience is incredibly diverse: he served our community as a police officer, then as a prosecutor, and now in private practice. When I was a prosecutor, I dreaded cases against Mr. Krieger because of his unique insight into the law, both theoretically and practically. He just understands how the law works. He is unparalleled in weakening the State's cases, and this skill is matched only by his abilities in trial. Juries and judges alike trust his accurate representations of the law. I have the pleasure of now working for Mr. Krieger, and every day I learn something new. He also was the only attorney to attend a recent blood chemistry seminar. This assisted our firm in acquiring several dismissals for our clients' DWI cases. His family law advocacy is equally prolific: we handle everything from adoptions to divorces. I whole-heartedly recommend Mr. Krieger."
Criminal defense Attorney | Mar 15
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"It's hard to do justice to Dan Krieger with mere words. The first thing you need to know is that his excellence is unparalleled in the area of client customer service. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of criminal law, having served as both a certified peace officer and as an excellent attorney. He knows criminal procedure inside and out, and maintains good relationships with both prosecutors and fellow defense attorneys. Unlike many lawyers, he isn't afraid to put the State to its burden and try a case, if that is what is in the client's best interest. Simply put, if I had the misfortune to find myself needing a criminal defense attorney for myself, Dan Krieger would be my first and last call."

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Dan Krieger and I worked together when I was a prosecutor with the Galveston Co District Attorney's Office. Mr. Krieger was employed as a peace officer with the League City Police Department. With drive and dedication, Mr.Krieger worked his way through law school. As a natural & trusted leader, Mr. Krieger was elected president of his class. Upon graduation, Mr. Krieger was employed with the Harris County District Attorney's office before striking out on his own. Today, Mr. Krieger owns and operates two successful law offices in Galveston Co, representing clients/citizens in both family cases and criminal defense. It is with great honor that I endorse Mr. Krieger as a well-respected, highly skilled and competitive lawyer. A true asset to our community."

"I endorse this lawyer. Dan is a tireless advocate for his clients. Shaped by an incredible history of service to the community, both as a former police officer and paramedic, Dan possesses intimate knowledge of the legal system. His knowledge is only matched by his great ability to communicate with anyone - a quality that serves both he and his clients very well when speaking to jurors. Dan is a true litigator and is steadfast in his commitment to provide his clients with the best possible representation."
Criminal defense Attorney | Sep 13
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Dan has spent his entire professional life helping people, first as a paramedic, then as a police officer, and now as a lawyer. His experience--both before and after law school--create an unbeatable combination. You will not find a lawyer who is more dedicated to you and your case than Dan Krieger."
Criminal defense Attorney | Feb 23
