Embarking on his legal journey nearly three decades ago, David Kiatta initiated his career as a prosecutor for the Harris County District Attorney’s Office in Houston. After seven years of dedicated service, he transitioned to private practice as a criminal defense lawyer, establishing his presence in Sugar Land, Fort Bend County. Notably, David holds Board Certification in Criminal Law from the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
David’s criminal defense experience spans United States Federal matters as well as Texas State criminal cases for individuals and corporations. With a track record of successfully getting cases dismissed and a wealth of trial experience, he specializes in handling extreme, serious, and complex criminal cases in Fort Bend County and across the Houston area, including Wharton County.
David’s motivation to become a criminal defense attorney sprouted during his tenure as a prosecutor in Harris County. Feeling the responsibility of representing the often marginalized “little guy,” he shifted his focus to fight for individuals facing circumstances beyond their control. This shift allowed him to work closely with those in unfortunate situations in the greater Houston area, becoming their dedicated criminal defense attorney.
Setting him apart, David brings a deep devotion to family into his work. Committed to aiding those charged with any crime, he boasts extensive criminal courtroom trial experience from both defense and prosecution perspectives. This dual experience equips him with valuable insight into how the state operates, responds, and evaluates legal cases.
David Kiatta is affiliated with prestigious legal associations, including the Fort Bend County Criminal Defense Lawyers Association (former president, vice president, secretary, and current bail bond board rep.), Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association (former board member), Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. His former memberships include the Houston Bar Association and the National College for DUI Defense, Inc. These affiliations offer him opportunities for continuous learning, legal advice, and seminars to enhance his ability to serve his clients.
Inspired by Ephesians 6:10-13, David draws strength from the Lord to face the challenges of criminal defense. He sees his role as not just a legal advocate but also as a warrior for his clients. With the belief that the Lord is in charge of their future, David is devoted to providing the highest quality representation, ensuring his clients receive the best possible outcomes in their criminal cases.
Beyond the courtroom, David Kiatta is a devoted family man, husband to his wife, Jennifer, proud father to nine children, and grandfather to two perfect little girls. In his leisure moments, he indulges in the art of bourbon, displaying both connoisseurship and a penchant for collecting. An avid hunter and outdoorsman, David finds solace in nature’s embrace. Adding to the family dynamic, David and Jennifer share their home with two beloved English Cream retrievers, further enriching their lives with companionship and joy. This multifaceted aspect of David’s life underscores his commitment not only to the legal realm but also to the values of family, recreation, and the beauty found in the simple pleasures of life.
