Our DWI attorneys are experienced in litigating every type of intoxication offense from complete refusals and breath test cases to blood cases that involve alcohol, drugs, prescription medication and serious injury or death. Fort Worth DWI Attorneys

WHITE COLLAR CRIME DEFENSE

Two of our partners are former federal prosecutors and three are Board Certified in Criminal Law. Our attorneys are uniquely equipped to handle allegations of white collar crimes from our experience handle these cases – both as federal prosecutors and now as federal defense attorneys. Following the money trail is key to white collar prosecutions and finding weaknesses in the money trial is often a central component to overcoming these charges. White Collar Crime Defense

SEXUAL ASSAULT DEFENSE

Allegations of sexual assault, almost more than any other allegation, are devastating. Prison time and registration as a sex offender suddenly become a very real possibility. Unfortunately it has become very easy to make a false accusation and for that allegation to have consequences that jeopardize families, careers, and freedom. We understand how serious these allegations are and have decades of experience handling these cases. Fort Worth Sexual Assault Defense

ASSAULT DEFENSE

Assault charges can range from Misdemeanor Assaults including Family Violence cases to Aggravated Assault with Deadly Weapons charges that could carry sentences of up to twenty years in prison. Assault Attorneys

FEDERAL CRIMINAL DEFENSE | FORMER FEDERAL PROSECUTORS

Federal criminal cases are very different than state cases. The system favors the government, and there are many pitfalls that a state criminal defense attorney may not be prepared for. The partners at our firm include two former federal prosecutors and three Board Certified Criminal Law Specialists. You will be hard-pressed to find any firm in Texas that brings so much experience to the table. Federal Criminal Defense

HOMICIDE DEFENSE

There are few attorneys who have heard the words, “Not Guilty” from a jury for a client charged with Capital Murder. We have. Our attorneys have defended cases ranging from Manslaughter and Intoxication Manslaughter to Murder and Capital Murder.

Copy of CRIMINAL AND CIVIL ASSET FORFEITURE DEFENSE

State and federal law enforcement agents can seize property even if you are not guilty of a crime and shift the burden to you to prove that you were an innocent owner. Asset forfeitures can happen administratively, civilly, or criminally. It is important to understand the differences and how to handle each. Few lawyers understand how asset forfeitures work or how to defend against them. Steve Jumes is one of the nation’s leading asset forfeiture attorneys and has successfully recovered millions of dollars of assets for our clients. Asset Forfeiture Defense

FEDERAL CRIMINAL RESTITUTION

Federal sentences often involve restitution orders. This means that once a person has served their time in federal prison they have to get out, reestablish their lives, while having restitution payments, often in the millions, to repay the federal government. Our attorneys assist with reducing restitution obligations on the front end, setting up payment terms, and re-negotiating restitution agreements. Federal Restitution Defense
