Former State Prosecutor
Heath Hyde is a prominent trial lawyer and distinguished former prosecutor. With thousands of successful prosecutions and hundreds of trials under his belt, Heath offers clients a unique litigation skillset gained from significant experience in both state and federal criminal courts.
Trial Expertise. Trying hundreds of cases has taught Heath that prevailing in court requires an ability to persuade the decision-maker, either a judge or jury, by translating complicated legal matters into understandable, relatable situations. This is an especially valuable tool in complex federal white collar criminal litigation, and Heath has the unique experience of having been one of only a handful of attorneys who defended the largest federal health care fraud case ever tried in the United States. Peers and clients alike admire Heath’s litigation style, especially his knack for securing favorable results.
Former Prosecutor. In his role as prosecutor, Heath has handled over 5,000 felony prosecutions, including conspiracies, organized crimes, money laundering, drug offenses, domestic violence, aggravated assault, terrorism, and kidnapping. Having spent more than a decade as an Assistant District Attorney, Heath has valuable insight into the mind of a prosecutor and can lend those insights when tailoring an appropriate defense strategy.
Criminal Defense. Heath represents clients in all stages of federal investigations, from initial notice to trial and appeal. Most clients approach Heath in times of crisis, typically after being notified of a criminal investigation or an indictment. He has represented over 3000 criminal defendants and has tried over 350 jury trials. Heath understands that for professionals, criminal exposure means not just risking freedom, but also possibly losing a license and livelihood. No situation is too hopeless and no case is too complex. Heath has defended numerous health care fraud and corporate fraud cases throughout the United States, which resulted in securing dismissals, non-prosecution agreements, or similarly-favorable outcomes for his clients.
Heath is a member of the Texas state bar.
