Houston Criminal Law Attorney

The Law Firm of R. Todd Bennett, P.C.

When you hire the law firm of R. Todd Bennett, P.C., to represent you in a criminal case, you will get me. I am the law firm. For the past 20 years, I have defended individuals and business entities under investigation or charged with crimes in Harris County and throughout Texas in both state and federal courts.

My Background

I am a lifelong Houston resident. I come from a family of lawyers who practice in Texas and throughout the country. I graduated from the Houston public school system and Texas A&M University. I am an honors graduate of South Texas College of Law. While in law school, I was recruited by the Harris County District Attorney's Office to work as a prosecutor. Upon graduation, I did just that. For four years, I successfully prosecuted many cases, ranging from DWI and drug charges to rape, robbery and murder. In 1995, I left the Harris County District Attorney's Office to pursue a career as a Houston criminal law attorney.

My Practice

I handle all types of state court criminal defense cases, including:

  • DWI
  • Intoxicated manslaughter
  • Drug crimes
  • Domestic assault and family violence
  • Sex crimes
  • Theft charges
  • Robbery
  • Homicide

In federal court, I represent people and companies charged with offenses such as:

  • Bank and mortgage fraud
  • Health care fraud
  • Identity theft
  • Immigration fraud
  • Wire fraud
  • Mail fraud
  • Drug crimes
  • Money laundering
  • Environmental crimes
  • Conspiracy

If you need a divorce or if you have been injured through someone's negligence, I can't help you. I can send you to some of the best lawyers on the planet, but I do not practice in those areas of the law. All I do is represent people and business entities charged with crimes.
