When you are arrested or charged Fort Worth or the surrounding cities in Tarrant County, Texas, it can feel like you have no control over your life. One minute you are living normally and the next minute the police are slapping handcuffs on you or placing you in a holding cell. The police will tell you that you have to talk to them. They will tell you that things will go better for you if you simply admit to the alleged crimes. They will tell you that your life is in their hands. They are the only ones who can help you. Do not fall for this.
The experience of being arrested and charged tends to feel surreal and confusing to a lot of people. It can seem like the police or prosecutors are on your side, but this is the opposite of the truth. Always remember that it is their job to secure a conviction, and they are more than willing to use half-truths and even outright lies to accomplish that goal.
If you find yourself or a loved one facing this type of situation, what you need is an advocate. An experienced, knowledgeable, dogged criminal attorney who can help you make sense of everything and shield you from those who do not have your best interests at heart. At the Hampton Law Firm, P.L.L.C., we take those responsibilities seriously.
