Our Houston Office



As the fourth largest city in the United States, Houston and the surrounding metropolitan area boast a population of just over6 million people. Houston is an incredibly diverse city. It also houses both the Texas Medical Center (the largest of its kind in the world) and the NASA Space Center. In addition to its expansive medical and aeronautics industries, Houston has also been dubbed the “energy capital of the world”. Many prominent oil and gas companies including Halliburton, Marathon Oil, Schlumberger, and Citgo have set up their headquarters here. The city of Houston is also a hub for tourism and the arts. Popular destinations include the Houston Zoo, Downtown Aquarium, Discovery Green Park, the Galleria Mall, and the famous museum district, which attracts more than 7 million visitors each year.

Our Houston office is located in one of the city’s most diverse districts, the Bellaire area. By vehicle, most tourist spots are easily accessible from our office through Beltway 8 or Highway 59 (Southwest Freeway).
