Community Involvement

Our society also plays a big role in protecting our safety. Members of the community make up juries who enforce the rules and laws that keep us from being harmed. At Ford & Cook, PLC, we believe in your constitutional right to a trial and fight to protect that right.

Lawyers must work hard to know how to effectively try a case in court, a skill that is not taught in law school, but rather through hard work and continued practice. As a result of this belief, we have dedicated our practice to obtaining the cutting edge trial skill needed to be successful in the courtroom.

In addition to this, our lawyers offer:

  • Recognition as leaders in trial innovation
  • Successful representation in criminal trials, including 7 capital murder cases
  • Dedication to protecting our client's rights, no matter what their case
  • Multiple awards and exclusive memberships in many organizations
