Justia Lawyer Rating for Jose NoriegaUnderstanding. Knowledgeable. Accessible. Unafraid. These are the pillars upon which Jose Noriega has built his highly successful criminal defense practice.

A native Texan, Jose graduated from Texas Tech University with degrees in psychology and political science before attending law school at Western Michigan, where he earned his Juris Doctorate in 2009. After stints with the Dallas City Attorney’s Office, the Dallas District Attorney’s Office, and the Dallas County Public Defender’s Office, Jose opened his private practice in Plano in 2010. He joined Guest & Gray as a senior associate in 2018, with 95 percent of his practice concentrated on defending those accused of misdemeanor and felony offenses. Half Hispanic, Jose Noriega is bilingual in English and Spanish.

Aggressive at trial and laid-back but effective during negotiations, Jose has taken numerous criminal cases to trial with successful results and mitigated the punishment in countless more, saving his clients the stress and expense of trial. While he concedes that nothing beats a “not guilty” verdict, Jose is committed to getting the best possible deal for each individual he represents and ensuring that every client receives the inalienable right of presumed innocence, particularly in a conservative county like Kaufman. He is especially passionate about protecting the records of youth, who have their entire lives ahead of them.

Upfront and responsive, Jose believes communication is key, and his natural ability to put his clients at ease and effectively communicate convoluted legal terminology and processes empowers and educates each person he represents. A testament to his professionalism and expertise, Jose has consistently been rated a Super Lawyer by his clients and peers for consecutive years beginning in 2014.

Jose Noriega is a board member of the Dallas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, and is a member of the Dallas Bar Association, National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, DUI Defense Lawyers Association, Dallas Criminal Bar Association, State Bar of Texas Criminal Justice Section, Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Dallas Association of Young Lawyers, Kaufman County Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, and the Human Rights Campaign Federal Club, which advocates for the LGBTQ community.

A diehard Dallas Cowboys fan, Jose lives with his wife and two dogs in Plano.

Client Reviews
Guest and Gray law firm is wonderful. I have had the chance to work with three of the lawyers and they all have been wonderful. They will tell you when you need a lawyer and when you don't. They actually try to save you money. They respond very fast to questions and try to help you understand what is going on. They are caring and are really judgment free. If I needed a lawyer again I would use this firm in a second and recommend them. K.K.
I used Guest and Gray to deal with my ex wife's accusations of child neglect.I dealt with Robert Guest and Tracy Gray. Both were excellent attorneys and surpassed every expectation I had in fighting the false accusations. We Won ! M.B.
I used Guest & Gray for a child custody case and they were great. I was really nervous about the case but they took care of everything and answered all my questions. I would recommend their services to anyone. J.R.
I can highly recommend Guest and Gray. I have worked on a number of cases with Robert Guest and and Scott Gray and find it amazing how MOTIVATED they are to do everything they can for their clients, not to mention that there superior knowledge, etc. In criminal cases supportive relatives always want to know "what can I do" to help. Hire Guest and Gray. C.S.
