The David Hunter Law Firm

The David Hunter Law Firm

When I left my judicial bench to work as a DWI lawyer, I started The David Hunter Law Firm with one goal in mind to give my clients a strong, aggressive and effective criminal defense.

Firm Overview

As an experienced criminal defense attorney and former Texas judge, I have seen first-hand just how complicated a successful criminal defense really is. To mount an effective criminal defense, an attorney must not only have an extensive knowledge of Texas criminal law, but he must also possess an in-depth understanding of the procedures and strategies used by the police and prosecutors to convict those charged with having violated the Texas criminal laws.
Prosecutors and police have a large number of resources available to them like crime labs, psychologists, medical professionals, forensic experts, team of investigators, all kinds of equipment and financial resources to fund investigations.
Consequently, it's important to work with a criminal defense attorney who can establish a balance of power in the court room. I have the necessary knowledge, skills, education and experience to serve as your criminal defense attorney while we fight your Texas arrest and criminal charges.

Ensuring Integrity as Your Criminal Defense Lawyer
Everyone is entitled to a fair trial, regardless of guilt or innocence. To ensure that my clients receive the representation they need and deserve, my practice is devoted exclusively to criminal law. I represent clients in regard to the following:
DWI/DUI defense
Juvenile law
Drug cases
Theft, burglary and other property crime charges
Assault, weapons and other violent crime charges
An Aggressive Texas DWI Lawyer
A conviction for driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Texas is not only financially expensive, but it also can have a long-lasting negative effect on your relationships, your lifestyle and your career. Because of the serious consequences you will face if convicted of drinking and driving or drunk driving, you need an experienced DWI lawyer to zealously fight your Texas DWI arrest.
As an experienced DWI lawyer and former Texas judge, I know that a successful DWI defense is possible in many cases. The police often make mistakes and there can be significant legal or scientific defenses available, too. In some cases, your charges can be reduced or even dismissed.
When your rights and freedom are on the line, you need a strong, aggressive and effective criminal defense. As your criminal defense attorney, I will fight hard to protect your rights and preserve your freedom.

Criminal Defense Advice
The burden of proof rests on the prosecution in matters of criminal charges. The people must prove that the defendant, beyond any reasonable doubt, committed the alleged crimes. A good defense attorney understands how to make that process even more challenging. Our Sugar Land criminal defense law firm works with the evidence in our clients cases to separate proof from conjecture. Our defenses pose definitive questions that help our clients defend their charges:
Was there, in fact, a crime committed?
Is there evidence our client was involved?
Is the evidence based in fact?
Are the witnesses credible?
Can our client be legally punished for this crime?
Are there any other logical explanations?
Did the police follow standard procedure?
Was the evidence legally obtained?
Are there any other suspects?
The criminal justice system fails every time the rights of the accused are compromised and innocent people are convicted. Our law firm stands up to the system by giving clients reliable criminal defense advice as well as the legal representation they deserve.
