Our long-time friend, Daniel Collins has joined the Cofer Luster Law Firm, P.C. He shares our belief that hard work will make a difference in every case.
Dan’s hard work and skill are hard to miss. Over the years, James and Cody have watched Dan hustling through the Tarrant County courthouse, which is how the three originally met.
Why Daniel made the switch to Criminal Defense
During his second and third year of internship, Daniel saw the injustice of the world in a trial case where the defendant was convicted despite a lack of evidence, outrageous allegations, and bad witnesses on the side of the state’s prosecution. Witnessing the jury convict with a compromise verdict – a verdict in which the jurors avoid a deadlock by conceding to some issues so that others will be resolved in a satisfactory manner to their view of the case – what could very well be an innocent man.
After seeing the failures of the flawed system that puts the accused defendant at an unfair disadvantage, Daniel decided to make the switch from working for the prosecution to defense. The criminal defense system works best if the individual has a strong defense that will put in the hard work to find exculpatory evidence and prepare a defense that may lead to a case dismissal that not only helps the client, but the criminal defense system that is set in place to prevent the government from being able to convict the innocent or those that don’t deserve the punishment attached to the accusation.
How Daniel Collins met James Luster of Cofer Luster Law Firm, P.C.
When James was a prosecutor, he faced off against Dan in Trial. After each case, they were both busted and bruised. The mutual respect that grew from those courtroom brawls turned into a hardy friendship. Now, they fight on the same side.
Dan served as co-counsel in Cody’s last trial before Cody joined the Federal Public Defender’s Office. The high profile case was complex and delicate. Hard work does make a difference. International news buzzed with reports on their amazing result.
