Meet Your Attorney

Dan-Phi V. Nguyen

Dan-Phi V. Nguyen is a native Houstonian who was born and raised in Sharpstown and Sugar Land, Texas in his younger years. He graduated from Houston Baptist University in February 2004 with a Bachelor degree in Business Administration and Finance. After working a few years in commercial property management and real estate, he decided to pursue a legal career and attended Thurgood Marshall School of Law (TMSL) where he earned his Juris Doctorate degree, and graduated in May 2010. During his tenure there, he took every opportunity to participate in trial simulation events, mock trials, and moot court competitions. Dan-Phi fell in love with the courtroom since his internship with the Harris County Attorney’s Office (Child Protective Division) and developed many meaningful relationships with his mentors where he was offered a job as an Assistant County Attorney two weeks after his admission with the Texas State Bar. For eight years, he tirelessly maintained his position as a civil prosecutor representing the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS), otherwise knows as Children’s Protective Services (CPS). He has experience in CPS and family law litigation in both the family courts and juvenile courts of Harris County, Fort Bend County, Montgomery County, and Galveston in the counties. He was very active with TMSL Board of Advocates and has been invited every year to act as presiding judge over the mock trial competitions for TMSL’s rising lawyers in training.

I Will Fight To Protect Your Legal Rights As A Parent Or Guardian, So That You Can Protect The Best Interest Of Your Children

“In July 2014, our lives changed.  We had just become empty nesters after raising our 3 sons.  My niece had given birth to my great niece, Brooklynn, in December 2013.  She made some very poor decisions during her pregnancy and after her delivery.  Brooklynn suffered with many issues due to the poor decisions made.  Some of her issues included: a feeding disorder, a sleep disorder, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, development delays, physical abuse and exposure to drugs.  CPS had removed Brooklynn from her, so we obtained our foster care license so that we could be the full time foster parents and guardians of Brooklynn.  We went through multiple CPS case works, had CASA workers, hired our own attorney, an ad litem attorney and there was Dan-Phi Nguyen, the Assistant County Attorney.  
For 18 months we went through the process of termination and adoption.  We were so thankful that Mr. Nguyen was there to fight for the truth and fight for the child that deserved a chance. He did his research, he talked to the parties, he asked the questions in court that brought out the truth.  He FOUGHT for Brooklynn.  He was there from the beginning all the way to the end when her biological mother and father’s rights were terminated until the Adoption!! 
We are so thankful that Mr. Nguyen cared and loved what he did!  It was very apparent that it wasn’t just a job.  Today we have a happy, healthy 6 1/2 year old girl with 3 adult brothers, a sister-in-law and she is now an Aunt “B” to 2 nieces and 1 on the way.  We will never forget what Mr. Nguyen did for our family.  WE ARE FOREVER GRATEFUL!!” – SANDY PEARSON

“I cannot be more grateful for Dan-Phi’s help reuniting me with my baby son. My case was complex plus highly contested, and I could not have done it without him. He kept me informed every step of the way, and genuinely worked on achieving the most positive outcome possible for me with integrity. I finally have my child back and my world is right again.” – NGAN KIM PHAN
