Attorney Brandon Shane Sims

Fort Bend County Criminal Defense Attorney

When it comes to criminal charges, who you choose as your ally and advocate could make all the difference. Turn to a Fort Bend County attorney who combines genuine passion with legal knowledge: Attorney Brandon Shane Sims. Brandon began his career as a prosecutor with the District Attorney’s Office in 2007.

In May 2013 he left the District Attorney's office and began working at a prominent criminal defense firm in the Greater Houston Area. It was here that he utilized all of his knowledge, understanding, and experience in the criminal justice system to defend individuals accused of criminal activity. Brandon found that he could be a zealous advocate for people going through the toughest circumstances of their lifetime.

Since his move from prosecutor to criminal defense lawyer, Brandon has protected the rights of hundreds of individuals accused of all types of crimes. He has become extensively experienced in criminal defense for everything from misdemeanors to serious felony charges. He founded The Sims Law Firm, PLLC in 2014 where he utilizes his experience and passion. His firm is solely dedicated to defending the accused, making sure their voices and rights are protected in court.

Dedicated to Presenting Your Story

If there’s one thing Brandon understands, it’s that the law is uninterested in the nuances of your story. Crime is not a simple equation—people who are charged with crimes are complex individuals caught in difficult circumstances, sometimes facing difficult choices and making mistakes. We fully understand this and make it our mission to ensure your story is heard.

More importantly, we fight to investigate every aspect of your case in order to prove your innocence. The Texas criminal justice system is notorious for being harsh on criminals—our job is to present the truth: that you are more than your accusations may represent. Our team of investigators, led by our Fort Bend County criminal defense lawyer, gathers every bit of evidence that is relevant and beneficial to your case. In this way, we relentlessly fight to outwork and outclass the prosecution.

Our attorney's investigative work includes:

  • Issuing subpoenas
  • Requesting video and audio records
  • Reading relevant written records
  • Contacting witnesses who can help your defense
  • Conducting all necessary and thorough legal research

As a criminal defense firm, we know that each of our clients are depending on us to preserve their freedom. We do not take our role lightly, and we approach every case with the stakes in mind. As a result, we defend our clients vigorously and aggressively, seeking out every possible avenue to build an airtight defense.
