Fort Worth Criminal Lawyer Brandon Fulgham

WHY MORE PEOPLE IN AND AROUND TARRANT COUNTY SHOULD CHOOSE THE FULGHAM LAW FIRM

There’s no other way to say it: being arrested or charged with a crime in Texas is scary. It can throw your whole life into disarray and make you feel like there is no way out. Like there is no hope.

Finding a way to beat your charges has to be your number one priority, which means choosing the right lawyer. How do you do that?

Look for someone with the right kind of experience. Obviously, you want a Fort Worth criminal defense attorney. Someone who has been practicing law for several years. Brandon Fulgham’s experience goes beyond this though.

One of the main reasons that people choose Brandon to represent them is the fact that he has an uncanny knack at understanding how prosecutors think – because he used to be one.

Before becoming a Tarrant County criminal lawyer, he was a Tarrant County prosecutor. His job was to put together solid arguments designed to get people convicted. Now he uses that very knowledge to anticipate and prepare for the strategy that prosecutors are likely to use against his clients.

Fort Worth Criminal Attorney

The state of Texas is tough on crime, and nowhere is that more true than in Tarrant County. If you are charged in or around Fort Worth, you can be sure that law enforcement officials and prosecutors will do everything in their power to secure a conviction and punish you to the full extent of the law. Depending on the specific crime or crimes you are charged with, this could mean facing years in prison, high fines, the loss of professional licenses, and restrictions on your rights, such as not being able to vote or own a gun.

The consequences do not stop there either. A criminal conviction may mean the loss of your job. It can tear your family apart. It can destroy your reputation and your ability to live a normal life – even after you have paid your debt to society.

Many people think it is not worth fighting less serious charges, but this is a mistake. Even misdemeanors can have serious negative consequences that make your life harder. Moreover, if you ever find yourself on the wrong side of the law again, having a previous conviction on your record – “minor” or not – will likely mean facing additional penalties.

You need a criminal attorney on your side who understands how things work in Tarrant County and knows how to mount an aggressive defense. Someone who has the experience and skill needed to give you the best chance at a positive outcome, and who will give you the attention you need and deserve. Because you are not just a case – you are a person.

CHARGES FORT WORTH DEFENSE ATTORNEY BRANDON FULGHAM CAN HELP YOU FIGHT – AND BEAT

When searching for a defense attorney to help you protect your rights and battle against your charges, it is vital that you pick someone who not only possesses a general track record of success, but also has success handling the specific crime or crimes of which you have been accused.

Why? Because Texas criminal law is complex and nuanced. There are a number of defense strategies that may work well against assault charges, but they will do nothing to help you avoid a fraud conviction.

Do not make the mistake of selecting someone with too narrow a focus though, because often during the judicial process, further investigation can lead to additional charges.

For example, you may initially be arrested for a DWI, but when law enforcement officials start poking around, they discover illegal drugs, unregistered weapons, or stolen goods in your vehicle. Those are separate charges that a lawyer who specializes only in DWI may not know how to help you with.

Because of this, your best bet is to work with someone who focuses on criminal law in your area, so they possess both the depth and breadth of knowledge you need. BRANDON FULGHAM HAS SUCCESSFULLY HANDLED ALL KINDS OF CRIMINAL CASES IN TEXAS.

Look for someone well-respected. Brandon Fulgham has an Avvo rating of 10/10 and is considered a Top Attorney in Criminal Defense. The National Trial Lawyers has named him to both their list of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers and to the Top 40 Under 40. Fort Worth Magazine has named him to their Top 100 Attorneys list. This type of recognition matters because it tells you that Mr. Fulgham’s peers in the legal community believe he is doing an outstanding job.

The most important recognition to Brandon Fulgham, though, comes from his clients, who have left glowing reviews of his work all over the web.

Look for someone with a winning track record. Ultimately, this is what it comes down to. When your life and your future are on the line, you want someone who has proven they can get the job done. One look at Mr. Fulgham’s track record makes it clear that he knows how to get his clients the best possible outcome and finds ways to get charges dismissed, dropped, or reduced.

Of course, there is one more important thing that you absolutely need from your criminal lawyer:
experience specific to your situation.

CONTACT FULGHAM LAW FIRM

The biggest mistake you can make? Waiting to hire a good lawyer.

Simply put: the more time your defense attorney has to craft your strategy, the more likely you are to end up with a positive outcome. If you delay, you not only give the prosecution more of a head start, but it is possible that you may lose out on certain kinds of evidence that are time-sensitive.

Do not take that risk. Get in contact with our Fort Worth office right now to set up a free initial consultation with Mr. Fulgham.

Fort Worth DWI Attorneys That Get Results!

What Should I Do If I Have Been Charged With A DWI?

This is the number one question we receive from people regarding DWI charges. There are several important pieces of information you must be aware of so that you can make good choices to protect yourself from the negative consequences that can come from a DWI conviction in Texas.  To start, you must decide to take action to start defending your DWI case IMMEDIATELY! Choosing to do nothing will only result in a suspended driver’s license, large fines, and lost time and leverage in negotiating that your DWI attorney could have used to put you in a better spot to resolve your DWI case.

How Do I Defend My DWI Case?

It is important to know that a DWI case in Texas must be defended based upon two main concerns:

  1. Your Texas Driver’s License
  2. Your DWI Criminal Case

15 Day Deadline To Save Your Driver’s License!

Regarding your Texas Driver’s License – under Texas law, you have 15 days from the date of your arrest to request a hearing to save your driver’s license from being suspended. This hearing is known as an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing. This is not a criminal proceeding. Under Texas law, this hearing is conducted in an administrative court and the primary purpose of the inquiry is to determine the following:

  1. Reasonable Suspicion for the DWI Traffic Stop – if the police did not have reasonable suspicion to pull you over for a traffic stop that led to your DWI arrest, your license will not be suspended under Texas law.
  2. Was The DWI Statutory Warning Form Properly Administered – did the police administer the warning forms to you and give you an opportunity to consent or reject a breath, blood, or urine test? If you did consent to the test, can they prove that you had a blood alcohol level of 0.08 or higher? If not, your license will not be suspended under Texas law.

Remember, you only have 15 days to make the request for a hearing or your license will automatically be suspended 40 days after the date of your arrest! By calling an experienced DWI lawyer, a request can be made for the hearing and extend out the date of the license hearing for a period of four to six months.

How To Choose The Best DWI Attorney In Fort Worth?

What does it mean to be the “best?” There are multiple criteria that can be evaluated when determining if you are hiring the best DWI lawyer in Fort Worth.

How Much Experience Does Your DWI Attorney Have?

At The Fulgham Law Firm, you will have a team of DWI attorneys that will work together to defend you. We have a team of 5 Former Prosecutors that have over 75 years of experience analyzing and defending DWI cases. Each DWI attorney in our office has handled hundreds of DWI cases and has the experience of prosecuting and defending over 75 DWI jury trials each. The Fulgham Law Firm has over 350 DWI jury trials that it has argued before the juries of Tarrant County, Texas.

The Fulgham Law Firm has the distinction of every attorney employed within the office has worked as a prosecutor. Why does this matter? In any negotiation, it is critical to know your opponent’s next move. We know how the prosecutor on your case has been trained and what their next move will be. This is critical when negotiating your DWI because most DWI cases are resolved by a plea deal. The critical component of any plea deal is your DWI lawyer’s ability to negotiate and the relationships they have with the judges and prosecutors. Our DWI attorneys have established relationships with the judges, the prosecutors, the probation department, and all parties involved in the DWI court process.

How Much Training Does Your DWI Lawyer Have?

Every DWI lawyer at The Fulgham Law Firm has extensive and ongoing training in DWI analysis, trial tactics, suppression of evidence issues, blood and breath testing protocols and other critical aspects of Texas DWI law that can affect the outcome of your case.

Courtney Miller, one of our experienced and aggressive DWI attorneys at The Fulgham Law Firm, has been recognized as an authority in DWI knowledge. So much so that she regularly speaks at continuing legal education events where specialized DWI lawyers train other attorneys how to effectively negotiate and defend citizens in a DWI jury trial.

Does Your DWI Lawyer Have A Commanding Presence and Personal Touch With You?

Finally, your DWI lawyer may be knowledgeable and experienced in a courtroom but if they don’t have the ability to communicate with you and take the time to apply a personal touch to your DWI case, you will not receive the legal representation that you deserve.

At The Fulgham Law Firm, we make it a firm policy that we allow our clients to review all their DWI evidence, including police reports, DWI videos, Field Sobriety Test scoring sheets, lab reports and other evidence. We believe it is critical that our DWI clients are invested in their DWI defense. We were not at the scene when the police officer pulled you over. For us to provide you the best defense, we need your perspective and make it a practice to answer all your questions so that you are informed and know what to expect with your legal defense moving forward.

DWI First In Texas?

Is this your first DWI arrest? Are you worried about what the consequences might be when you resolve your DWI case? Let’s answer a few common questions frequently asked:

  1. Is jail mandatory for a first DWI arrest in Texas? If it is your first DWI arrest, an experienced and aggressive DWI lawyer should be able to negotiate your case in a manner that avoids jail time. However, it is critical that your DWI attorney tear apart the evidence and compare the police reports to the DWI videos and establish reasonable doubt regarding the elements of DWI, as provided under the Texas Penal Code. The more doubt that can be established by your attorney, the more leverage you will have to negotiate a favorable result to your DWI case.
  2. How long is probation for a first DWI in Texas? Under Texas law, the maximum term of probation for a first DWI in Texas is two years. However, if your DWI lawyer pushes the prosecutor in the negotiation, even the worst of DWI cases can many times be negotiated for a much shorter term of probation than 2 years. Additionally, your DWI attorney must work to lower the fines for a first DWI. Under Texas law, you can receive a fine of up to $2,000, not including court costs and probation fees.
  3. Can you get a DWI dismissed in Texas? Although it is possible to get a DWI dismissed in Texas, it is rare. Very few DWI cases are dismissed in Texas. Common reasons why a prosecutor may dismiss a DWI case: death of a necessary witness, improper blood draw, arresting police officer subsequently arrested for a DWI offense or other felony offense.Although it is rare that a DWI is dismissed in Texas, there are other strategies by which your DWI attorney can achieve a similar result. If it is determined that your DWI traffic stop was illegal, your DWI lawyer can file a motion to suppress the evidence and the DWI could be thrown out by the judge. If your blood draw was taken improperly or the search warrant affidavit was defective, your blood evidence may be excluded, which could lead to a much more favorable result that could keep the DWI arrest off your criminal record. If the Field Sobriety Tests were improperly administered, there may not be probable cause for a DWI arrest and your DWI attorney may be able to file a motion challenging the arrest, which could result in your DWI being thrown out by a judge.
  1. Does a DWI stay on your record in Texas? Until recently, a plea to a DWI in Texas would always result in a conviction on your criminal record. However, Texas DWI law now provides deferred adjudication as an alternative to straight probation under certain circumstances. Texas has also recently enacted DWI legislation that provides for the possibility of having a non-disclosure of all records if you resolve a first DWI case under a probation sentence. However, the rules for getting a DWI off your criminal record are nuanced and require the attention of an experienced DWI lawyer that regularly handles these matters. For example, depending upon how you resolve your DWI case, there may be a 2 year or 5 year waiting period before you will be eligible for a non-disclosure for a DWI case.
  2. How long does a DWI case take in Texas? Each county in Texas has different procedures for how they handle DWI cases Generally, larger counties in Texas have more cases and large dockets. As a result, it can take significantly longer to resolve a DWI case in a large county than in a smaller county. For example, in Tarrant County, there are many pending DWI cases in the county criminal courts The average time frame to resolve a misdemeanor DWI in Tarrant County can range from 6 months to 1 year. On rare occasions, a DWI case can take up to 2 years to resolve for a favorable result If you are charged with a felony DWI in Tarrant County, Texas, it is not uncommon for the court system to take 12 months to 18 months to resolve. This further emphasizes the importance of having an aggressive DWI attorney willing to push the prosecutor as far as necessary to ensure you receive a favorable result.
