Houston Criminal Defense Lawyer
Robert J. Fickman
Zealously Fighting For The Accused.
My job is to fight for your liberty. My clients are entitled to have me in their corner, fighting for them. The law says that you are presumed innocent. But don’t be naive. In this world the first step to winning a criminal case is recognizing that if you want to win, your lawyer will have to fight for you, develop a strong defense, and prove your innocence.
Past President, Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association
35 YEARS EXPERIENCE: DEFENDING LIBERTY
In the past 35 years I have defended virtually every kind of criminal case. I have defended clients charged with Assault, DWI, Possession of Controlled Substances, Complex Federal Fraud Cases, Drug Conspiracies, Aggravated Robbery, Murder, and a wide range of Sex Offenses. I have defended people from all walks of life; from clients who have never seen the inside of a courtroom to clients with lengthy criminal records. Defending people comes naturally to me. Unlike many of my colleagues who practice criminal law, I have never prosecuted anyone and I never will. That is not me. My entire life has been dedicated to defending people accused of crimes.
VICTORY IS ALWAYS MY PRIMARY GOAL
If you are under investigation, my primary goal is to keep you from getting charged with a crime. If you have been charged with a crime, my primary goal is to win your case by obtaining a dismissal. Of course every case is different. If I cannot get your case dismissed we will discuss all options. If the state will not dismiss your case, it’s your choice, as my client, on which direction we go. We can either go to trial and fight for a Not Guilty or I will negotiate the best possible deal. My approach is simple: I try to get my clients’ cases dismissed. That is the best outcome for any client who is charged.
REPUTATION FOR HARD WORK AND PERSEVERANCE
Most of my clients come from referrals from other lawyers, past clients, or local organizations. I believe people come to me because of my reputation for hard work and integrity. Clients know that I will do my best, no matter what the situation. It is not necessary to have a referral for me to assist you. Anyone can call me to represent them. My law practice is dedicated solely to criminal defense. I have tried many cases in the Harris County Criminal Courthouse and in the Federal Courthouse. Approximately half of my cases inolve federal charges while the other half involves Texas state charges.
