If you're facing criminal charges in Texas, you can't afford to hire an overworked public defender, nor do you want to leave your fate in the hands of a young attorney who is fresh out of law school. You need a seasoned legal advocate. As the founder of the Law Office of A. Oliver Hassibi, and with over a decade of experience practicing in the state and federal courts of Texas, I know the criminal justice system inside and out.
As my client, you can expect:
While any criminal charge can threaten your career, liberty, and future, a criminal charge in Texas can be life-ruining. It's no secret that Texas has some of the harshest criminal laws in the nation. This means that if you're ultimately convicted of a crime, whether you actually committed it or not, you may very well get a graver punishment than someone convicted of the SAME crime in a neighboring state.
Let me give you a couple basic examples. In Texas, if you're convicted of possessing a mere 2 ounces of marijuana, you are considered guilty of a misdemeanor offense. You could face 6 months in jail and pay $2,000 in fines. In contrast, if you're convicted of possessing 1 to 2 ounces of marijuana in Colorado (consumption can't be public), it's merely a petty offense, with no jail time and you'll only get slapped with a $100 fine.
Let's take a look at a simple DWI for a minute. Now this is one of the most common offenses that people get arrested for every day across America. For your first DWI offense in Texas, you can be fined up to $2,000, you can spend up to 6 months in jail, you can expect to lose your driver's license for 1 year, and you will have to pay an annual fee of $1,000 or $2,000 for three years to retain your driver's license!
Whatever your situation, I know that once law enforcement and the prosecutor have shifted their focus to you, you're backed in a corner. This is especially true if you're an alien who could be facing deportation or the denial of U.S. citizenship. When you're up against the Texas criminal justice system, this is serious business. I understand what is at stake for you, and I am equipped to help you defend your future.
You're basically in a lot of trouble if you're facing any criminal charges in Fort Worth or anywhere else in Tarrant County. What sets me apart from the other criminal lawyers out there? First off, I will treat you with the respect and decency you deserve no matter what criminal charges you are facing. I won't hold your hand, take your money, and stand by your side as you quietly accept your punishment – that is NOT my style!
I am a highly skilled negotiator and a formidable adversary in the courtroom. Over the years, my dedication has yielded favorable results for numerous people. I know you may lose your license, your right to bear arms, your dignity, and your family: you need a hard-hitting pit bull fighting in your corner. In all of my cases, I buckle down and invest long hours into evaluating a case and finding every possible error made by law enforcement, every possible hole in a case that may exonerate my client.
As a passionate attorney, I represent the criminally accused against state and federal charges. From domestic violence or a simple DWI, to drug charges, white collar crimes and murder – I can defend you! Don’t hesitate to discover your possible defense strategies.
