All Fort Worth Criminal Charges Demand a Skilled Fort Worth Criminal Defense Attorney

Fort Worth Criminal Defense

Being arrested or charged with a crime in Tarrant County and surrounding areas can be a paralyzing experience. You may have all kinds of emotions racing through your brain – anger, embarrassment, confusion, sadness – but you do not know how to act on them or what is going to happen to you.

Will you lose your job? Will your spouse leave you? Are your kids going to be taken away? Can you still get into college? How are you going to pay for all of this? Do you have to go to prison? Depending on the specific crimes you are being accused of and the charges you face, any of those fears may be valid concerns.

There are three ways that people tend to react to facing criminal consequences. The first is that they shrug them off. They decide that their charges are “minor” and that it is not worth their time to bother fighting them. The second possible reaction is that people lose hope and feel like there is no point in contesting the charges. Either the system is rigged against them, or they believe that the case the prosecution has is too good.

Do not let yourself get mired in having one of those reactions. They are traps, and falling into either of them is exactly what law enforcement officials and prosecutors want to happen. It makes their job a whole lot easier if you just lie down and take whatever punishment they decide to give you.

Pick the third option: protect your rights by reaching out to an experienced Fort Worth defense lawyer like Jeff Hampton.

Charges do not seem serious enough? Being convicted of anything can make your life a lot harder by reducing your rights, hurting your reputation, and limiting your ability to do seemingly easy things, such as get a job, find a place to live, and more.

Convinced you will not be able to win anyway? Who says? One of the founding principles of our country is that someone is innocent until proven guilty. You do not even have to prove your innocence – just cast enough doubt so that your guilt is not certain. The burden of proof is on the prosecution.

This may not seem like a big thing, but when your life and your future are on the line, it matters a lot. Over the years, Mr. Hampton has taken on a number of supposedly “hopeless” cases and helped his clients clear their names – or at least greatly reduce their charges and penalties.

Charges That Tarrant County Defense Attorney Jeff Hampton Can Help You Fight

When you are trying to choose a criminal lawyer to represent you, one of the most important things to do is see if they are experienced in handling your specific charge. You would not head to a brain surgeon for a broken arm, and you cannot expect that an attorney will know how to help you with your charges just because they passed the bar.

However, be wary of selecting someone with too narrow a focus. Unlike some other defenders who concentrate solely on one criminal act, such as DUI, Jeff Hampton prides himself on having both a depth and breadth of knowledge when it comes to Texas criminal law.

Why is this important? Because all too often, one charge leads to another. You may initially be brought in on that DUI, but if officers find drugs on your person or stolen goods in your vehicle, you can bet you will soon be facing charges for those alleged offenses as well.

Diving into evidence gathering. The right evidence can make or break your case. Because of this, you need someone on your side who is experienced at locating and collecting evidence.

On the one hand, this means choosing a lawyer who understands the necessity to act quickly and efficiently, because some types of evidence cannot be collected after a certain amount of time has passed.

Understanding the other side. A big part of the reason why Jeff Hampton has had so much success as a Tarrant County defense attorney is due to the fact that he intimately understands how prosecutors and law enforcement officials think. Why? Because he used to be a prosecutor. He used to spend his days putting together strategies designed to get people convicted.
