Pamela Boggess

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Pamela Boggess is Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Before joining the Cofer Luster Criminal Defense Lawyers , Pam served as a chief felony prosecutor at the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office and as a Tarrant County Magistrate.



Board Certified by Texas Board of Legal Specialization

To become Board Certified, a lawyer must have extensive trial and appellate experience. Once a lawyer accumulates the required experience then the lawyer must receive recommendations from judges and other lawyers. Upon submission of these qualifications to the Texas Board of Legal Specialization (TBLS) the application is reviewed. If the lawyer meets the objective experience qualifications then the Board allows the attorney to sit for the specialization exam. The Specialization Exam is often said to be harder than the Bar Exam. So, you can see, Board Certification Matters. This sets Pamela Boggess apart from most other Fort Worth criminal attorneys.

Mr Daniel Colins’s service felt very personal vs feeling like a paid service. He attened to my senseless/sensible questions with no judgement, when I couldn’t establish communication with him his teammate Mr James Luster would step in and be at my service, and in absense of both Miss Racheal made sure to relay informations to and forth.This definitely is a place anyone should/want to work with to ease their consequences.I did have a favorful outcome for me but even if it was otherwise I would give the team 5 stars for the amazing service alone.

Met with the entire team in person, which is highly important. After firing my old attorneys from Fort Worth, I was referred to these attorneys by a highly regarded friend. These guys are the real deal. They hire PI’s and every specialist to ensure that you are taken care of and proven innocent. Come in with a clean heart, they are experts at their job! Have as much evidence and facts as you can to assist them. Daniel, Pamela and Cody and James are the best of the best!

Cody, James, and MorganOutstanding legal representation you provided me during my recent court case. Your expertise, dedication and hard work were instrumental in securing a favorable outcome, and I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done.From the very beginning, you took the time to listen to my concerns, answer my questions and provide me with the guidance and reassurance I needed to get through this difficult time. You demonstrated an exceptional level of professionalism throughout the entire process, keeping me informed of all developments and working tirelessly to ensure that my rights were protected. Your skill and experience as a legal professional were evident in the way you presented my case in court. Your arguments were well-researched, clear and concise, and your ability to anticipate the opposing counsel's arguments was impressive. I was amazed at the way you were able to navigate the complex legal system and use your knowledge of the law to my advantage. Thanks to your hard work, the judge ruled in my favor, and I am now able to move forward with my life with a sense of peace and closure. I know that I could not have achieved this outcome without your help and support. I will always be grateful for your exceptional legal representation and your unwavering commitment to justice.
