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, leveling charges against alleged criminals for nearly six years.
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 on his experience and his 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

on us to preserve their freedom. We do not take our role lightly, and
