Whenever someone is looking at potential criminal charges, the course of their life could hang in the balance, meaning whoever is being trusted to defend them has a critical job on their hands. Criminal law proceedings are not very forgiving nor merciful to those who are accused.

Even in cases where the information available may be flawed, convictions can still occur. Apart from the penalties the defendant is made to deal with, there are other effects such as employment challenges, alienation, and more. The judge, the assistant district attorney, etc., are not concerned with these things.

Sparks Law Firm is concerned, however, which is why the criminal defense team goes above and beyond, taking a proactive approach to strongly defending its clients. Why not schedule a free consultation today? Call (817) 334-0300 to do so!

Justin was my lawyer for a case I had with Tarrant County. He was very responsive, professional, and helped us sooo much! I ended up having everything dismissed. Definitely highly recommend!

It isn't always easy, but a Fort Worth DWI lawyer can have the case thrown out or have the sentence reduced in some DWI cases. Below are some of the arguments that DWI attorneys often use to defend DWI cases.


Convictions in the Texas legal system are not foolproof. It's not uncommon nor unheard of for the prosecutor, judge, jury, or even the initial trial attorney of the accused to make mistakes or errors. In these situations, appeals are allowed.

However, they must be handled precisely and carefully, and this is only possible with top-tier criminal defense lawyers. Such attorneys will ensure that the notice of appeal is filed quickly, as is the written brief that must follow it.


The Sparks Law Firm team is here to make sure that appeals for criminal cases are handled in the most optimal way possible.

Evading Arrest

The penalties here can be very severe, especially in cases where the person fleeing may be doing so because they have illegal substances. It's often true that the punishment is worse than what it would have been to be caught with the said substances.

This kind of charge can fall under either the felony or misdemeanor umbrellas, and the difference maker here is the presence of a motor vehicle.

Intentionally fleeing on foot is a misdemeanor and comes with a fine of up to $4,000 and jail time of up to a year. When there is a motor vehicle involved in the attempted escape, this becomes a state jail felony with a punishment of up to two years in jail and a fine of up to $10,000.


Things get worse if there is any injury or killing caused by the person trying to escape. While the fines may not be different, there is the potential for prison time going up to 20 years.

Federal Crimes

These are crimes that the government of the United States has classified as illegal. Proceedings surrounding these offenses are extensive and may include dealing with a U.S. attorney and a federal grand jury.

Crimes falling under this category include money laundering, tax evasion, and drug trafficking. Here, the burden of proof will lie with the federal government, meaning they must be able to prove guilt beyond the shadow of a doubt.

A good defense lawyer is here to protect the client from any less-than-solid cases.

Juvenile Crimes

Juvenile offenses are especially scary to be on the wrong side of as children tend to not be mentally prepared to handle legal proceedings. Who could blame them? Of course, the parents are also left to be worried since the outcome of the matter could see their children being taken away from the safety of the home.

In criminal law, Texas tries people 17 years old and older as adults. Therefore, those between the ages of 10 and 16 are treated as juveniles.

From the potential for arrest to the penalties that will be faced and how the case will be treated in court, there are many variables to consider. It's up to an experienced and passionate criminal defense lawyer to provide the greatest measure of protection to those accused.

White Collar Crimes

These are nonviolent crimes that will typically happen in the world of business where there is some element of dishonesty, deception, or misrepresentation where the intention is to get some kind of financial gain.

The party being accused could be a person or a company. In either case, the government tends to have special investigators and prosecutors for these kinds of matters, which makes the defense process that much more complex.

Title IX

Title IX matters focus on the maintenance of an environment of fairness in places such as schools and companies. respecting the rights of all is non-negotiable, and that also applies to the rights of those who require legal services to defend against these kinds of cases.


DWI/DUI cases in Texas are treated with extreme scrutiny. Even someone who is only guilty of a first offense could be looking at some dire consequences as well as hefty fines. Jail time, high expenses, and a suspended license are just some of the problems that may be faced here. Things get even worse when there is a child passenger to consider.


It takes a skilled and experienced DWI attorney to help clients navigate these kinds of charges by putting together solid defenses that can stand up in legal proceedings.

Crimes Against Children

Like a DWI, this is another class of charge that is treated harshly. Of course, this time it has more to do with the vulnerable nature of children. Those dealing with charges for such a criminal offense are advised to speak to a qualified defense lawyer in the shortest possible order.

The kinds of charges here tend to fall under the categories of child endangerment/abandonment or injury to a child.

Defenses tend to include proving that the injury was not caused by the defendant, insufficient evidence, false accusations, or the fact that the injury was minor and reasonable in the course of discipline by a person with the authority to do so.


Criminal records can be a nightmare in certain situations such as trying to get gainful employment. However, there are some cases in which a record nondisclosure or expungement may be possible. This is usually because of a positive outcome.

The availability of these records to the general public is the norm in many cases, and this can make it difficult to lead a normal life.

Should there be eligibility, it's generally recommended to reach out to a Texas expungement lawyer such as those at Sparks Law Firm to help protect your future and good name by getting your criminal history taken care of.

Firearms Crimes

Texas is an open carry state, but this does not mean there is no attempt at firearm control. It is quite the contrary. The recommendation is that those interested in firearms take the time to understand the different regulations and laws that apply to carrying them.

Gun crimes in the state may include unlawful carrying, discharge, possession, or trafficking of firearms. Murder and aggravated assault also fall under this category. Additionally, don't make the mistake of thinking that a licensed firearm holder is immune. Even they must respect the laws of the state that govern how they are allowed to carry.

Theft Crimes

Theft crimes include a lot of considerations in Texas. What is the value of the property that was stolen? What kind of theft was it? Does the offense count as a felony or a misdemeanor? Are there previous offenses? What does this mean for the penalties that are being faced?

Defending a case of theft typically includes proving that there was no intent to steal or that there was some kind of entitlement to the property in question. In some cases, it is just a matter of misunderstanding or erroneous accusations, and a criminal defense lawyer from Sparks Law Firm is ready, willing, and able to ensure that clients are not convicted for faulty cases.

Violent Crimes

Assault is the categorization of several occurrences in Texas. As is expected, it speaks to the reckless or purposeful offense committed by one person to another that may result in some kind of physical injury. However, it also speaks to threatening someone with imminent harm or even making some kind of physical contact with the person while knowing it will be seen as offensive.

Like some of the other matters highlighted above, the circumstances surrounding the assault can see it being tried as a misdemeanor or a felony offense. There are also Texas-specific assault charges that exist, which is yet another reason to retain the services of a legal professional who understands the laws well.
