The Importance of Your Criminal Defense Attorney’s Positive Reputation

Choosing a criminal defense attorney to defend you against criminal charges can be nerve-wracking. After all, your freedom can be adversely affected and you could face a litany of other serious consequences for years to come—or even over the span of a lifetime. Moreover, a criminal conviction can leave you unable to obtain a job, take out a student loan, possess a firearm, obtain a professional license, work with children or hold public office—and this is only the beginning of the long-term consequences.

Legal firms which have positive reputations have earned those reputations over time. They have defended hundreds or thousands of clients just like you. Those clients—just like you—likely called a law firm when they were in trouble. They were also probably scared, anxious and facing an uncertain future. The law firms with positive reputations not only have the best legal minds, they have the resources necessary to engage the services of experts and specialists to help defend you against the criminal charges you are facing. Mr. Fulgham has this positive reputation.

Brandon Fulgham is a former Tarrant County and Collin County Prosecutor. As such, he held the following positions: felony prosecutor, grand jury prosecutor, misdemeanor prosecutor and misdemeanor court chief prosecutor (Collin County). While employed at the Tarrant County and Collin County District Attorney’s office Mr. Fulgham tried over 75 jury trials in both district and county courts. Mr. Fulgham has also tried numerous cases to a judge, and presented hundreds of cases to the grand jury. At The Fulgham Law Firm P.C. you will find a criminal lawyer who is aggressive and experienced in handling criminal cases.

What to Do Once You’ve Been Arrested

If you’ve been arrested for a criminal offense—or suspect that you will be arrested—perhaps one of the most important things you can remember is that talking to the police is rarely in your best interests. Of course you will provide the basic information such as your name and address, but before you answer any further questions, it is highly advised that you ask to speak with an attorney first. Meaning, you invoke your right to remain silent and to obtain legal counsel. Specifically, the Miranda Warnings exist for a very good reason, so remain calm and politely decline to answer any further questions until you have had a chance to consult with your attorney. Police officers and prosecutors are trained to gather evidence which as you are already aware, will later be used against you. In many cases rules may be bent or broken in this quest to gain a statement or “break the case.” You may make an entirely innocent comment which is then taken out of context and used to convict you.

Stages of a Criminal Prosecution (Understanding the process)

An investigation is generally mounted when the police have sufficient reason to believe you have committed a criminal offense. Facts are assessed, witness interviews are conducted and evidence is collected against you. A warrant will be issued for your arrest and you will be taken before a judge to enter a plea. The judge will set a bond and the amount will depend on the severity of the charges and the facts of the case.

When it is time for your preliminary hearing, the prosecutor will claim that there is sufficient evidence against you to proceed to trial. Your case may have a few pre-trial settings to make sure all of the evidence is obtained. At this point, should probable cause be established, we will confer with you to determine whether a plea bargain is in your best interests or if you should fight the charges before a jury. It is your decision whether you enter into a plea bargain, but we will make sure you fully understand the alternatives as well as the consequences of the plea.
