Houston Criminal Defense Attorney

Texas Criminal Law Lawyer
Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization

Jane Scott Vara Criminal Defense AttorneyI am Jane Scott Vara and I am a criminal defense lawyer. In my Houston law office, I offer over 15 years of criminal law experience to people throughout the Houston area. Before opening my criminal defense practice, I was a prosecutor for almost 10 years in both Walker County and Harris County. I handled criminal prosecutions in Walker County for over 2 years and in Harris County for over 7 years. I have prepared countless criminal prosecutions and know how the State prepares criminal cases. I can anticipate their strategy and tactics and I know how to present the best case to obtain a dismissal or acquittal in your case. I am skilled, experienced, and dedicated to getting you the best result possible.

My Practice

My practice is solely devoted to defending adults and juveniles accused of committing a criminal offense. I handle all types of criminal cases in both State and Federal Court including: 

  • Drugs. I defend people charged with drug possession, trafficking, manufacturing or conspiracy in cases involving all types of controlled substances, such as marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines, heroin and prescription drugs.
  • DWI. I defend people charged with drinking and driving, whether it's your first offense or you have been charged before. I will use my knowledge and experience to evaluate your case beginning with a determination of whether or not the State had probable cause for stopping you and to ensure that all of your Constitutional rights are protected.
  • Assault. I represent individuals charged with offenses including assault by threat, assault of a family member, and aggravated assault. 
  • Sexual Assault. I handle the defense of a wide range of sex crimes, including rape, sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault of a child, indecency with a child, child pornography, and Internet solicitation of a minor.

Skilled, Experienced, Dedicated to Obtaining the Best Result
