Eddie Frankum is the President and founder of HALO and he is our Chief Investigator. He formerly served as a Captain in the Internal Affairs Division and finally as a Chief of Police. He has extensive investigative training and experience and he is a member of the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer's Association where he is designated as an "Expert" Investigator.
Mr. Frankum is certified by the Texas Supreme Court and is a Program Advisory Committee member of a Texas college Criminal Justice Program. His background in law enforcement provided the training and experience that developed the skills he and other HALO Investigators use today to discover, produce and establish information in criminal defense and post-conviction cases that has provided relief to many of our clients.
Mr. Frankum has personally and successfully filed Federal civil rights violations law suits against law enforcement officers and Assistant District Attorneys as well as the local and county governments they work for.
Most importantly, Mr. Frankum's personal experiences with the criminal justice system made him appreciate the tough situations most of our clients are in, more so than someone who has never been accused of a crime they did not commit.
