BALDEMAR (VAL) ZUNIGA
I have experience in every aspect of criminal defense, because I started from the bottom and worked my way up. I never knew how that experience would allow me to understand the needs of clients and be compassionate to their requests, where other attorneys sometimes take clients for granted. I work hard to receive favorable results for my clients, and I make myself available 24 hours a day. 713DRUGLAW is not a marketing gimmick, it is a way of life!
I am a native Texan, born in Corpus Christi. I moved to Houston in 1998 and graduated Cum Laude from the University of Houston – Downtown, where I earned a Bachelor's degree in English. Before moving to Houston in August 1998, I worked as a legal assistant and investigator with a team of criminal defense attorneys in Corpus Christi. I continued to assist with trials ranging from Driving While Intoxicated to Capital Murder.
I obtained my Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Houston Law Center, and I began work as a Criminal Defense attorney immediately upon passing the Bar. By the grace of God, I have been able to assist thousands of clients over my legal career, and have participated in trial in a wide variety of criminal cases.
In February of 2008, I ventured out on my own and formed Zuniga Law Offices, P.C., where I worked as a solo practitioner until forming Zuniga, Carter, Morales, McCalla, P.C. in January 2009. My calling now is to continue to provide the best representation for criminal defendants in the Houston area and throughout the State of Texas. I am licensed to practice law in all Texas State Courts as well as the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas and Western District of Texas. I am also licensed to practice law in The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
I enjoy giving back to the community and my colleagues through my service as a Board Member for the National Minority Lawyers and Legal Assistants Association.
