For Criminal Defense Or Family Law Representation

November 2015 Archives

Attorneys must necessarily regulate other attorneys.

Recently, a San Antonio criminal defense attorney and candidate for felony judge (in a court that handles victims of sex crimes), Mark Benavides, was arrested for using his position as an attorney for various women to compel prostitution of his clients. If the allegations in his arrest warrant are true, then he has breached the public trust placed in the legal profession as practitioners of the law and officers of the courts. Lawyers are obligated to place their clients' interests ahead of their own. Anything less is a failure which undermines the legal system, especially the justice system, where clients face prison or even death. Attorneys are the only people properly trained and equipped to respond to a threat to the legal system. As a result, we have an obligation act when a member of our profession uses his position to take advantage of those who have turned to him for help.

SAPD Has Been Training Officers To Ignore The Law

Hoelscher Gebbia PLLC demonstrates once again that we are not only committed to vigilant defense of our clients facing drunk driving charges, but to fairness and honesty in the justice system as a whole. We know how serious drunk driving charges are, so we're not afraid to attack the system. First, we caught the District Attorney's Office hiding flaws in the Bexar County DWI breath testing program by exposing bad maintenance of a defective Intoxilyzer 5000. Second, we spearheaded the effort which eventually brought down Integrated Forensics Laboratory ("IFL"), the Bexar County DWI blood lab, in a scandal that has now spread statewide. Now, we have brought proof that SAPD's number one DWI cop and Field Training Officer, David Luther, has been teaching rookie cops to ignore the law.

What Many Texans Don't Know About DWI Charges and ALR Hearings

Many people don't know it, but when a person is arrested for DWI in Texas, two separate legal proceedings are initiated: the criminal law side and the civil administrative side. The administrative aspect has to do with your driver's license, and the criminal law aspect has to do with the DWI charge against you.
