Fort Worth Criminal Defense FAQ

Fort Worth Criminal Defense FAQ

Being arrested for a crime is a terrifying situation, and you’re bound to have all sorts of questions to ask your attorney. We are happy to answer all of your questions during a free consultation.

Below, we’ve answered a few questions the Fort Worth criminal defense team at the Law Offices of Jeff C. Kennedy often receives.

Should I talk with the police after an arrest?

Not without an attorney present. Often, the whole purpose of the police officers’ questions is to develop a stronger case against you, and they may mislead you into an accidental confession. Insisting on having a lawyer with you during all police questioning is a good way to avoid accidentally admitting guilt.

What’s the difference between probation and parole?

Probation is an alternative sentence to prison. It’s a chance to remain in the community instead of serving prison time. Parole is when you’ve been released from prison early under the condition that you will be supervised in the community.

Should I even bother fighting a misdemeanor charge?

Many people believe that misdemeanors are no big deal, but a misdemeanor conviction can still have a great impact on your life. In many ways, a misdemeanor conviction can negatively impact your life similarly to a felony conviction. Fighting the charge could help you avoid these negative consequences.

What types of cases are you willing to take on?

We can help you with any criminal defense case, but here are a few we often handle: assault and family violence, drug crimes, criminal trespass, driving while intoxicated, probation revocation, theft, sealing and expunging records, and weapons charges.

Jeff C. Kennedy was the light of hope at the end of very dark storm. He was not only able to defend my case swiftly, but had the alleged charges dismissed completely. His calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself and those I care about most. My children and I are eternally grateful for his excellent service and I hereby recommend Jeff C. Kennedy without reservation.


Jeff Kennedy truly cares. He and his staff kept me informed all the way throughout my case and provided me with all my options and the potential outcomes for my case. When the day finally arrived to resolve my case, Jeff was able to negotiate a reduction to a lesser charge. He was well prepared and coordinated everything perfectly. Jeff is not only a good lawyer, but a good man.


I hired Mr. Jeff Kennedy to handle a DWI charge. From day one, I knew I had picked the right attorney. Jeff always took the time to answer any of my questions, treated me very professionally, and truly cared about my case. I have never been in any kind of trouble before and I was very nervous about the thought of going to trial. Jeff thoroughly explained the entire process to me and made me feel at ease. Jeff took my case to trial and the jury found me NOT GUILTY!


Jeff Kennedy is a professional, intelligent, easy-to-talk-to lawyer with an excellent understanding of how the system works. Jeff was able to get my twice the legal limit BAC thrown out and he kept me from having an interlock device put on my car. This has been my only big mistake in life so far (hopefully the last) and I am glad he was there to walk me through it. You will not regret hiring him.
