Brandon Fulgham

The Law Firm You Can Trust with Your Fort Worth Criminal Charges

Choosing a defense attorney to help you deal with criminal charges in and around Tarrant County is a huge decision. Fort Worth law enforcement officials – and our great state of Texas in general – take crimes very seriously. Depending on the specific charges you face, a conviction could come with truly severe consequences.

Years behind bars. Ridiculously high fines that you struggle to pay. Restrictions on driving and where you can live. The removal of your gun rights. These penalties and others can have a huge negative impact on your life, making it harder to do things that most people take for granted.

The only thing that stands between you and a conviction? Your lawyer.

At Fulgham Hampton Criminal Defense Attorneys, we know just how important it is to choose the right criminal attorney to defend you in your case. Pick someone who does not really understand the nuances of your particular charge and they might end up missing something vital that could lead to a more positive outcome. Work with a lawyer who takes on too many cases and they will not be able to give you the attention you deserve.

So how do you know that a particular Fort Worth defense attorney is the right one for you? It comes down to their track record.
