As the principal of the Law Offices of Charles T. Ganz, with office locations in Houston and Coldspring, Texas, Charles T. Ganz focuses his practice on criminal defense, representing clients throughout the state. In addition to general criminal defense matters, Mr. Ganz devotes a substantial amount of his time to defending clients who have been charged with intoxication offenses such as Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), Driving Under the Influence (DUI), Boating While Intoxicated (BWI), Intoxication Assault, and Intoxication Manslaughter. Another substantial amount of time is defending drug offenses from simple possession to possession with intent to deliver.
Over the course of his career, Mr. Ganz has practiced law in excess of 50 different counties throughout the State of Texas, primarily in the southeastern Texas counties of Harris, Galveston, Montgomery, Chambers, Matagorda, Brazoria, Fort Bend, Waller, Austin, Colorado, Grimes, Brazos, Fayette, Washington, Walker, San Jacinto, Liberty, and Jefferson. Mr. Ganz has traveled as far north to Parker County, as far west to Kerr County, and as far South to Cameron County. For the right client, there is not a county in Texas too far to defend the freedom of someone in need. The primary law office is located in Houston. Mr. Ganz also has an office in San Jacinto County on the family ranch. Mr. Ganz enjoys spending a considerable amount of his time on the Ranch and took advantage of it by opening an office to practice law in the surrounding counties such as San Jacinto, Montgomery, Polk, Trinity, Liberty, Walker, and Madison counties.
Mr. Ganz received his Bachelor of Business Administration in business administration and management from Texas A&M University in 2001. After studying abroad in that same year, he received a Certificate in International Business from the Lowry Mays College & Graduate School of Business, now known as Mays Business School. Mr. Ganz then attended South Texas College of Law and was awarded his Juris Doctor in 2004. Admitted to practice in Texas in 2004, he spent more than eight years as a criminal defense lawyer at the Houston-based law firm, Trichter & Murphy, P.C. before opening the Law Offices of Charles T. Ganz in 2013.
Mr. Ganz is a member of the National College for DUI Defense, Inc., the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, the Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Beginning in 2008, Mr. Ganz was recognized as a ‘Texas Rising Star’ as published in Texas Monthly Magazine Super Lawyer’s edition.
