Reputation and Experience Matter


When hiring a criminal lawyer, one of the most important considerations you must research is the reputation of the criminal attorney among prosecutors, judges and fellow attorneys. Choosing a criminal lawyer that is respected by judges and prosecutors can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case. It is important that your criminal attorney is known and respected in the courtroom. At The Hampton Law Firm, both of our attorney’s are former Tarrant County Prosecutors with more than a combined 10 years of experience at the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office and over 20 years of trial experience dedicated solely to criminal trial practice before the juries of Tarrant County. At The Hampton Law Firm, you will find that Jeff Hampton and his trial team have tried over 150 jury trials in Tarrant County and have a reputation for getting results in negotiations with prosecutors, judges and probation officers in Tarrant County.


The Hampton Law Firm is a law firm that specializes in criminal defense trial litigation. The number one priority of The Hampton Law Firm is to ensure that every client’s rights are protected. I take pride in formulating a defense strategy that is specific to each individual client’s unique circumstances. If you have been accused, charged, or are under investigation for a criminal offense in Tarrant County, Fort Worth, Arlington, Euless, Bedford, Mansfield or surrounding areas, it is of the utmost importance that you hire a competent criminal lawyer that will represent you in an effective manner. A common complaint from clients at criminal defense law firms is that they meet with one attorney at the consultation and are transferred over to another attorney upon retaining the law firm. At The Hampton Law Firm, that’s not how we do business. I will personally handle your case and ensure that you receive the best legal representation that effectively places an emphasis on one-on-one personal contact.




Upon completing my  law degree at the University of Houston Law Center, I began working as a prosecutor with the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office. As a former prosecutor with the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office, I have held the following positions:

  • Felony Prosecutor (Criminal District Court Number Four, Criminal District Court Number One)
  • Misdemeanor Prosecutor (County Criminal Court Number Nine, County Criminal Court Number One, County Criminal Court Number Three)
  • Grand Jury Prosecutor
  • Special Prosecutor appointed in Johnson County


When hiring a criminal lawyer, trial experience is a must. During my tenure at the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office and as a criminal defense attorney, I had the opportunity to litigate a number of criminal jury trials for cases ranging from driving while intoxicated to murder. In the area of DWI, I have tried cases ranging from breath and blood test refusal cases to test cases and drug DWI cases. I have also made hundreds of grand jury presentations and successfully had my client’s cases no-billed and reduced by a grand jury.


I have received and continue to receive extensive training and continuing education in all areas of the criminal law of Texas. In the area of DWI alone, I have received specialized training in the investigation and litigation of Intoxication Manslaughter, Intoxication Assault, Standardized Field Sobriety Testing, and both alcohol and drug-related DWI cases.
