Douglas Daniel

Bio Photo of Douglas Daniel: San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyer

I am a San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyer with more than three decades of experience in criminal defense, granting me the knowledge and familiarity to take on San Antonio DWI, assault, domestic violence, drug, federal, juvenile, state, theft and many other types of criminal defense cases. I started my legal practice in 1981 defending accused individuals in their criminal cases after I received my Juris Doctorate from St. Mary's University School of Law. As a San Antonio criminal defense attorney I have gained ample experience dealing with the various courts, judges and prosecutors in South Texas.

Of special note, I was recently elected to membership as a Life Fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation in recognition of best-in-class criminal defense service and devotion to the highest traditions of the Bar. In addition, I have been asked to be a Founding Member of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys (AAPDA). This is a national association of some of the top DWI/DUI criminal defense lawyers in the country, and it is a honor for me to be asked to be a founding member. I have successfully represented clients charged with alcohol related offenses for over thirty years locally in San Antonio and in counties all across the state of Texas.

Bio Photo of Brandon Hudson: San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyer

I partnered with San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyer Douglas Daniel in 2007, and since then our ability to aggressively represent accused individuals and mount successful criminal defense strategies has rapidly grown. I am a highly skilled San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyer who is certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in criminal law, which means that I am a specialist in my chosen field. I also serve on the 2014-2015 board for the San Antonio Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. I have comprehensive knowledge of the criminal justice system, considering that I practiced law as both a criminal defense attorney and a prosecutor. Prior to working as a criminal defense lawyer in San Antonio, I was a First Chair Felony Prosecutor in various counties throughout the state of Texas. As a well-seasoned San Antonio Defense Lawyer, I have ample experience handling serious criminal defense cases, including death penalty cases in Bexar County. Also, I have expertly handled numerous defense cases as a Criminal Defense Lawyer in Fredericksburg, Kerrville and Boerne.

In a recent sexual assault criminal defense case win, I was able to get all charges dismissed for a 20-year-old man who was accused of indecency with a child when he was 15. My investigation determined that credible evidence did not exist to prove that my client was the actual offender. The charges were dropped before my client was indicted or arrested.

What should I do if pulled over for DWI?

This is one of our most frequently asked questions. Doug and Brandon are highly experienced San Antonio DWI lawyers and they have created a laminated card that you can keep on your person that you should give to any officer that is investigating you for suspicion of DWI. The card advises the officer that the bearer has been instructed not to answer any questions, or attempt to perform any field sobriety tests or provide any specimen of blood, breath or urine to the officer.
