Mark A. Sampson is not a former Prosecutor. He has never prosecuted an individual on behalf of the Government. He has been committed to defending those who are charged with criminal offenses and will pursue injury claims with a diligence.


Mark A. Sampson is licensed in Federal Court in the Western District of Texas. Most of our federal cases involve drug crimes or firearms, however, we can litigate any federal criminal case.

We are on call 24 hours a day for jail releases. There are four primary ways an individual can be bonded out from jail: 1) 100 Percent Cash Bond -- Refundable Once Case is Finished, 2) Personal Bond, 3) Cash Deposit Bond (With Attorney's Assistance), 4) Surety Bond (Private Bail Bond Company or Attorney). All jail release fees are applied to representation fees. In some cases it is better to hire an attorney rather than a bail bond company. If you hire a private bail bond company for release, you will then turn around and have to retain the services of an attorney. In short, you pay twice.

In most cases we have a payment plan option that should fit your financial situation. We try to make the plan affordable to you. Typically, the retainer fee is about one-third of the total contract, and many times the remaining balance can be paid within 90 days from the date of the contract. We accept cash, cashier's check, money orders and credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express) and personal checks are accepted if you have an existing contractual relationship with our firm.

If you have been charged with a DWI, a misdemeanor, or a felony, it is important that you hire an attorney. Do not wait. DWI charges can be time-sensitive and might seriously impact your future if not properly handled.
