Criminal Attorney Jeff Hampton

Fort Worth Charges Are Serious – Get a Serious Criminal Attorney

If you or someone you love is facing a criminal charge, finding a good lawyer may not be the first thing on your mind. Most likely, it is all you can do to process the situation. Will there be jail or prison time? How are you going to afford bail and other fines? Will your career survive? Your family?

Unfortunately, this state of fear and confusion is exactly where law enforcement officials and prosecutors want you. Because it will be easier to get you to tell them what they want to hear, so they can secure a conviction.

How do you prevent this from happening? By getting an experienced, knowledgeable professional on your side who can keep the wolves at bay and guide you through this process.

A skilled Tarrant County defense attorney will ensure the police and other officials respect your rights and adhere to their own rules and restrictions. A good attorney will also work with you to understand the facts of your case and build a strategy specific to your situation.

Jeff Hampton has been helping his clients in and around Fort Worth to do just that for years, and he can do it for you as well. Choosing Mr. Hampton to represent you means gaining a compassionate advocate willing to really listen and take you seriously – as well as a bulldog who will aggressively fight against those trying to take your life and freedom away.

Why You Should Choose Tarrant County Defense Lawyer Jeff Hampton to Fight Your Charges

Why do so many people in the Fort Worth area select Jeff Hampton and the Hampton Law Firm to protect their future and freedom?

Reputation and Recognition. If you really want to know whether or not a particular criminal attorney is good at what they do, ask other lawyers. Talk to the prosecutors they go up against. The judges to whom they must present their arguments.

Jeff Hampton is well-respected amongst his peers as a professional with an unparalleled knowledge of the law who excels in litigation and possesses comfort and skill in the court room.

Perhaps that is why he has received so much recognition over the course of his career, including:

 

 

Experience and Background. Awards and recognition are one thing, but you also need to make sure the lawyer you choose has the right background and the type of experience needed to handle your case.

Jeff Hampton has not only handled all kinds of charges both in and out of the court room as a defense attorney, he also worked in the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office as a prosecutor as well. Specifically, he has served as a:

  • Felony Prosecutor (CDC4, CDC1)
  • Misdemeanor Prosecutor (CCC9, CCC1, CCC3)
  • Grand Jury Prosecutor
  • Special Prosecutor (Johnson County)

This matters for several different reasons.

The first is that he has firsthand knowledge of how prosecutors think and what goes into building their case against you. This allows him to anticipate their arguments and prepare countermeasures designed to cast doubt and poke holes in their case.

Secondly, working as a prosecutor provided him with something else that a lot of other defense attorneys do not have a whole lot of: trial experience.

During his time in those positions, he was able to present hundreds of cases to the grand jury (everything from DWI to murder) and litigate numerous cases before a judge. This means that Jeff Hampton is not going to be frightened into taking a subpar deal by the threat of having to go to trial.

While he is often able to work out favorable deals for his clients without the need of a trial, he thrives in the court room and will not hesitate to argue your case in front of a judge or jury if he believes it will earn you a better outcome.

Finally, while working at the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office, Mr. Hampton received extensive training and continuing education in all areas of criminal law. In the area of DWI alone, he has undergone specialized training in the investigation and litigation of Intoxication Manslaughter, Intoxication Assault, Standardized Field Sobriety Testing, and both alcohol and drug-related DWI cases.

Speaking of education, he learned the law right here in Texas at the University of Houston Law Center, and he has kept himself up-to-date on legal matters by joining numerous legal associations, including:

  • National College Of DUI Defense
  • State Bar of Texas
  • Tarrant County Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Association
  • Tarrant County Bar Association
  • Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Association
  • Texas District and County Attorney’s Association (Former Member 2005 – 2010)

Results. In the end, results are what matter. Is a lawyer able to get his or her clients the best possible outcome? With Jeff Hampton, the answer is clear. He and his team possess a stellar track record of being able to get their clients’ charges dismissed, earn them a “no bill” or a not guilty verdict, or get their charges reduced.
