  Get Legal Assistance in Arson and Fire Investigation Cases  

 The science of fire investigation is a complex puzzle of many moving pieces. Overworked and underpaid Arson or Fire Investigators are usually tasked with investigating a particular case in the middle of the night. Figuring out what took place in a fire has evolved over the last thirty years into a scientific field that takes years to learn and a lifetime to master. Correctly documenting the events as to how a fire is started is crucial to the outcome of any fire investigation.  As a chief prosecutor, Miles Brissette was assigned to the Tarrant County Arson Task Force to assist the arson, bomb, and fire investigators here in Texas. Miles also investigate and successfully prosecutes cases involving arson, and homicides as a result of an intentionally set fire and improvised explosive devices (IED) nationally.  Working day in and day out, Miles Brissette developed a national reputation as an attorney that understands what it takes to put together a solid fire investigation and lawsuit. This recognition is exemplified in his election to the Board of Directors for the Texas Chapter International Association of Arson Investigators (IAAI) and the Texas Advisory Council on Arson (ATAC).  In 2012, A Texas Advisory Council on Arson (ATAC) named him the Texas Arson Prosecutor of the Year.   

Fire Investigators and S.I.U. Personnel works to reach a call of a fire. The correct classification of a fire is important in analyzing the events which took place during the duration of the fire.  The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) has four classifications for fires: Accidental, Natural, Incendiary, and Undermined**.  Once a call has been made as to fire the investigators will next attempt to assign responsibility for the fire to a particular person or persons for acts as they relate to accidental, incendiary (arson), and undermining.  If you or your family have had a fire that the authorities or insurance investigators are calling incendiary or intentionally set, contact our office immediately for assistance in defending your rights on both the civil and criminal sides.

 Intentionally set fires are the most underreported violent crime in the United States.***  In Texas, fire-related criminal charges can range from a class C ticket to Capital Murder. With a punishment range of small from a fine only, to the Death Penalty, it is essential to have adequate and experienced representation when fighting any type of arson charge. In seeking a successful and tenured arson defense team, do not hesitate to contact The Law Office of Gill & Brissette.
