Graham Norris, a highly respected North Texas trial attorney, is launching a new boutique Criminal Defense firm based in Fort Worth. Norris Legal Group, led by the former prosecutor-turned-award-winning defense attorney, will be based in downtown Fort Worth, and has leased space in the Wells Fargo Tower.

Graham Norris most recently represented Michael Miller in a highly publicized murder trial in Taylor County. The jury found Mr. Miller Not Guilty. “We were incredibly relieved that the jury saw the truth and did the right thing. Michael got his life back,” Norris explained.

Norris Legal Group will focus on criminal defense, including those accused of federal and state felonies and misdemeanors. “If you’ve been accused of a crime, we can help,” Norris said.

Norris was born and raised in Fort Worth, and received a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Dallas Baptist University, before returning to Fort Worth to pursue law school at Texas A&M School of Law (Formerly owned by Texas Wesleyan University). During law school, Graham served as President of the Federalist Society, and won national awards in Mock Trial and Alternative Dispute Resolution. He served as President and CEO of the Board of Advocates, and upon graduation, was named to the National Order of Barristers in recognition of his skill and achievement in advocacy.

After law school, Norris served as an Assistant District Attorney in Tarrant County, prosecuting both misdemeanor and felony crimes, including: DWI, Theft, Drug possession, Aggravated Assault, Aggravated Robbery, Sexual Assault of a Child, Murder, and many more.

After transitioning to private practice, Norris built a reputation as a skilled trial attorney and effective negotiator. Having made countless arguments before both judge and jury, Norris has achieved incredible results for his clients such as dismissals and not guilty verdicts at all levels, including multiple murder cases.

Norris was appointed by Former Mayor Betsy Price to serve on the Ethics Review Commission for the City of Fort Worth, and served on the city’s Redistricting Task Force.

Norris currently sits on the Board of Directors for the non-profit LVTRise, working to uplift the Las Vegas Trail community in west Fort Worth. Norris has been honored as the National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 attorneys for criminal law, a Texas Super Lawyers Rising Star, and has been named one of Fort Worth Magazine’s Top Attorneys.
