Naomi Howard is a dedicated advocate who calmly navigates crises and fearlessly challenges injustice. For Naomi’s clients, these skills bring results that include pretrial dismissal of charges, deferred adjudication and appellate victories. Naomi’s practice focuses on investigations and criminal defense matters in Texas and federal courts. She has represented elected officials, professional athletes, corporate officers and students, all of whom faced life-altering criminal charges or investigations. Though Naomi’s public victories have drawn acclaim — such as when the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals declared a law facially unconstitutional based on her appellate work — Naomi is equally proud of the discreet ways she has helped innocent clients avoid charges or trial.
