Christopher Gisentaner joined J.D. Silva & Associates in 2022, continuing to focus his practice on criminal defense and personal injury. He is licensed to practice law in all state courts in Texas. He has worked in the legal industry since 2014, working in private practice handling criminal defense cases for over six years and previously worked at the Brazoria County District Attorney’s Office prosecuting criminal matters.

His extensive trial experience on the prosecution side gives him unique insight into how the government prepares charges and handles cases against the accused. He now brings this substantial strategic advantage to bear for his criminal defense and personal injury clients. What’s most important to Christopher’s criminal practice is fighting for those that have been victimized by the criminal justice system. He also brings that passion to fight for his clients who have been injured due to the negligence of others.

Christopher graduated from University of Houston with a Bachelor of Science in Political Science in 2003, with honors. He earned his law degree from Texas Southern University Thurgood Marshall School of Law in 2014, cum laude.  During law school, he participated in mock trial and served as the Parliamentarian for the Black Law Students Association.

Christopher is a member of the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, the DUI Defense Lawyers Association, and the State Bar of Texas. He was honored to be included among the Top Lawyers for Criminal Defense by Houstonia magazine for multiple years. He was born in Houston and graduated from Elkins High School in Missouri City, Texas.
