The San Antonio area is notorious for DWI arrests. The government has cracked down on alleged drunk drivers. If you are one of the many people who have been accused, it is critical that you take action immediately. Prosecutors begin working on your case from the moment that you are arrested. In order to have the best possible defense, you need an experienced attorney to represent you from day one.
At the Law Offices of J. Charles Bunk, we use our extensive experience to protect your rights and freedom. San Antonio DWI attorney Charles Bunk spent 13 years as a prosecutor, including time on the DWI Task Force, before becoming a criminal defense attorney, so he knows DWI law from both sides. He knows the actions that prosecutors take to prosecute a drunk driving case, and he knows the strategies that truly work to protect the rights and freedom of the accused.
At our San Antonio law firm, we represent clients throughout South Texas who have been accused of drunk driving. Each case is unique. We represent people facing first-time DWI arrests. We also represent people facing a second DWI conviction or a DWI third (felony DWI) conviction. We know that these cases are serious, and we take the matter seriously through forceful action.
When we handle drunk driving cases, we examine every element:
- Did the police have reasonable suspicion to stop your vehicle?
- Did methods used at a DWI checkpoint violate your constitutional rights?
- Were field sobriety tests administered properly?
- Was the breath test taken properly?
- Was the Breathalyzer calibrated correctly?
- If you refused the breath test, did the police have a warrant for a blood draw?
- Were you given the proper Miranda warnings about statements made in custody?
The law prohibits evidence that was obtained illegally from being used against you in your case. We may be able to have charges dropped or reduced to a lesser offense if we discover that the police acted illegally.
Protecting Your Driver's License
After a DWI arrest, you have only 15 days to save your license. The law requires that you must request an administrative license review hearing (ALR hearing) within 15 days of your arrest. Otherwise, you may waive your right to protect your license.
At the Law Offices of J. Charles Bunk, we handle administrative matters related to your driver's license as well as your criminal defense, but you must act quickly. Contact us as soon as possible.
