On September 13, 2017, Texas Governor Greg Abbott appointed McClees & Guiney partner Kristin Guiney to the 232nd Judicial District Court. This move has been widely praised by the local criminal bar. Kristin is Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. She is a former chief prosecutor at the Harris County District Attorney's office where she tried virtually every type of crime imaginable. Kristin previously served as judge of the 179th Judicial District in Harris County, where she routinely received among the highest marks from the Houston Bar Association's Judicial Poll. During her career, Kristin has tried over 80 cases to verdict as lead counsel. Kristin is an alumna of Emory University in Atlanta and received her law degree from the University of Houston Law Center.
As a result of this good news, McClees & Guiney, PLLC is now changing its name to the McClees Law Firm, PLLC. We will continue our standard of excellence in all cases that we handle.
