Ft Worth Gun & Firearm Charges

The second amendment of the US constitution establishes our right to bear arms. Firearms charges need to be taken seriously.  The consequences for such a charge can be severe and having an experienced Fort Worth firearms attorney on your side can make all the difference in order to have a positive outcome.  For example, how the weapon was discovered by a law officer is a very crucial piece of information in a defense case.  Call the Sparks Law Firm today to set up a free consultation.


Punishments for drunk driving convictions are increasingly harsh in Tarrant County and the rest of the DFW metroplex. If you are found guilty the consequences could affect the rest of your life.  Setting aside the facts of your case, you need an experienced and prepared Fort Worth DWI attorney to investigate.  Texas has relied heavily on breath tests, blood tests and field tests to determine your level of sobriety. Your DWI  attorney may be able to challenge the validity of any chemical tests performed.  Another issue is whether the police had probable cause to stop your vehicle.  Fort Worth DWI lawyer Justin Sparks will be a zealous advocate for your rights.

Federal Criminal Defense

Federal crimes are generally more serious than crimes charged in state courts.  Although there are numerous amounts of crimes that can be charged in federal courts, prosecutors generally focus on larger scale drug offenses, and large scale frauds.  If you have been contacted by a federal agent, you need to hire a criminal defense attorney before taking any further steps.  Fort Worth criminal attorney Justin Sparks will help you better understand your options and rights, and with attention to detail and a steadfast commitment, you can anticipate the best outcome possible under the circumstances.

WesleyDomestic Violence Charges (Fort Worth, TX)

Respectful Lawyer Saved Me

Justin Sparks is a lifesaver! I was caught in a situation in which I knew I was innocent, but the cops just threw everyone in jail just because they could. Mr. Sparks took care of everything and was able to get me off free and clear. If it had went the other way, my professional career would be gone and I would be in an unsatisfying position. I was listened to and treated with respect. There are not a lot of people out there who will still do that. I suggest you see if he can help you out if you get into a bad situation.
