Law Firm Overview
Fitzpatrick Hagood Smith & Uhl LLP is an experienced, dedicated law firm located in Dallas, Texas. Our full-service criminal defense firm was founded in 2004, bringing together four of the top criminal defense lawyers in the state of Texas. However, the roots of our firm date back to 1994 when Knox Fitzpatrick and Daniel K. Hagood left the Dallas County District Attorney's office to form what was then Fitzpatrick & Hagood.
Our firm was founded on the notion that our attorneys are part of a law firm – a team, rather than a loose association of individuals. We believe that when you retain one of us, you retain all of us. We "task organize" a specific lawyer-investigation team for each case. In this manner, we provide each client highly tailored legal advice and representation based on the needs of our client and the experiences of all our lawyers. Every attorney at Fitzpatrick Hagood Smith & Uhl LLP is a former high-level state and/or federal prosecutor. Some of our partners are Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and all have been recognized by their peers as a Texas Super Lawyer in Texas Monthly Law & Politics Magazine.
Our attorneys form a rich union of experience to criminal defense matters. Along with being former high-level state and federal prosecutors, partners at our firm have also served as United States Attorney for the Northern District of Texas, General Counsel to the Governor of Texas, Special Prosecutor in the Dallas County “Fake Drug Scandal," an instructor at the U.S. Attorney General's Advocacy Institute, and SMU Adjunct Professor teaching white collar criminal advocacy. Our ability to effectively defend complex state and federal criminal matters comes from our in-depth understanding of how prosecutors prepare and try cases. In many instances, the partners in our firm trained the lawyers prosecuting our clients' cases.
As a full-service law firm, we defend clients charged with any state or federal criminal violation, including military or UCMJ violations. Our attorneys have handled cases ranging from securities fraud in federal court to war crimes in military court, and from capital murder in state district court to driving while intoxicated in county court. At Fitzpatrick Hagood Smith & Uhl LLP, no case is too difficult, and no case is treated as routine.
