Respected – Responsive – Results

During her distinguished early career as a Harris County District Attorney, Ms. DeBorde was, at one point, responsible for prosecuting police officers and politicians.

Her well-known reputation for thoroughness and aggressiveness has followed her into her successful private practice.

When a dedicated practitioner makes their mark on a profession as quickly as Nicole DeBorde has, word gets around. She serves as legal analyst for national TV networks such as Fox News, CNN, MSNBC and Court TV. She has appeared to share her legal insights on programs like “The O’Reilly Factor” and “Nancy Grace.”

Locally and statewide, Ms. DeBorde has been named one of Houston’s top lawyers by several publications. This includes “H Magazine” and “Houston Magazine”. She is one of the city’s most dynamic women by the magazine “Houston Modern Luxury.” She was a recipient of the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Presidential Award in 2007.


Our law firm’s founder has also been a lecturer for the Texas Justice Court Training Center and the Top Gun DWI Seminar here in Houston. DeBorde also coordinated a seminar entitled “Defending Sex Crimes Against Children.” At those seminars, she shared her knowledge of a variety of criminal law topics with judges and other legal professionals. She has written and lectured extensively on topics like jury selection, warrants and probable cause.

In short, Nicole DeBorde is esteemed both among her fellow lawyers and fellow Texans. She is admired in her own community and respected in her work.
