Attorney Hancock is non-judgmental. Bad things happen to good people, and good people sometimes make bad choices. That's human nature.

Don't be too ashamed to seek help or defend yourself.

David L. Hancock is an Experienced Trial Lawyer in San Antonio
Going to trial is a serious matter. The myth that judges tend to be harsher on people convicted of crimes at trial is actually no myth at all. It's the truth. Judges feel that people should confess their guilt rather than lie and try to beat their charges in court. They look at the plea bargains you've been offered as leniency. However, the plea bargains may not meet your needs, and you may not be guilty of what you've been charged.
When your case goes to trial, you will need a lawyer who knows how to take depositions, hire expert witnesses, and conduct private investigations, as well as coach you through the process in addition to cross-examining witnesses.
Attorney David Hancock can advocate for you, protect your rights, and make sure you are presented in the best possible light given the circumstances. In a lot of instances, when law enforcement officials and prosecutors don't do their jobs right (which is more often than you may think), we can get evidence suppressed and cases dismissed.
