“Cody had us at hello. My daughter was facing very serious charges due to an unfortunate accident. We visited with 3 lawyers before coming to see Cody. He returned my daughter’s call immediately. Upon meeting with Cody there was a sense of total trust, knowledge, and responsiveness. Cody and his team fought in her defense 110 percent.

CRIMINAL CASES WE HANDLE

The criminal cases typically handled by our defense attorneys are clients accused of harming family members or loved ones. In Fort Worth, we defend mainly against domestic violence, child abuse, child neglect, misdemeanor and aggravated assault. While we do handle many other types of criminal cases, the three found below are areas that our criminal defense attorneys specialize in.

Were you arrested or accused of a crime in Fort Worth or Tarrant County?

REMAIN SILENT! Remaining silent does not mean that you refuse to answer any questions asked by law enforcement. Instead, politely say to the officer, “I want a lawyer,” and contact one of our criminal defense lawyers immediately at 817.810.9395. You should know that police officers are trained to investigate and gather evidence to build a criminal case against you. In their zeal to get an arrest, some rules may be bent to their benefit. In the pursuit of a conviction, your innocent statements may be taken out of context. It is a proven fact that while under the pressure of law enforcement questioning, many people freely provide the evidence needed to convict themselves to the police through false confessions or statements. DO NOT make this mistake. While you should be cooperative with the police, you should do so in a controlled setting where you have access to expert legal advice.

Are You Facing assault, domestic violence or child abuse charges in Fort Worth or Tarrant County?

As we already mentioned, our Fort Worth criminal defense firm provides tough and experienced defense in assault, domestic violence and child abuse cases. This is what Cofer Law is known for. The types of assault range from class C misdemeanors such as threatening another person with imminent bodily injury, or causing physical contact with another person that is perceived as offensive or provocative. More serious assault charges are felonies, including sexual assault, aggravated assault, domestic violence, child abuse, and the sexual assault of a child.

If you find yourself charged with any form of assault, even a misdemeanor, then you need to secure the best criminal defense lawyer you can find to defend you as soon as possible. Aggressive defense in these cases is paramount, because even a simple misdemeanor assault charge on your record can have devastating effects later on if you are applying for a job, trying to rent an apartment, buy a house or if you are charged with the same offense again in the future. At Cofer Law, our experienced Fort Worth criminal defense attorneys have handled all levels of assaultive offenses to successful resolution for our clients and always with an eye for what their future needs are. If you are charged with assault, we hope you will give us a call. We will make you glad you came to us.

We are defense attorneys you can rely on for effective strategies and tactics. From the second you are accused of a crime we are here to better your position.

From the moment the government begins investigating you for a criminal case, they are gathering evidence and preparing a case against you. This process can start you off behind making it hard for some defense attorneys to ever adequately catch up. This is why it’s crucial to select the right criminal defense attorney for your case. We are aggressive and experienced trial attorneys, and we will prepare your case to be trial-ready long before a trial is even a consideration.

Fort Worth defense attorney Cody Cofer brings that aggression and experience to every criminal case from misdemeanors to the most serious felonies.

Cody holds board certification in criminal law through the Texas Board of Legal Specialization–an honor that less than 10% of other lawyers in his field hold.
