Attorney William Hunter

Recently, William’s client was facing a life-altering DUI charge. William found a technicality in the State’s case and successfully argued a motion to suppress for a client charged with DUI. William fought for his client and was able to prove that the law enforcement did not have a sufficient reason to arrest the client for DUI. William’s client avoided a DUI charge and is able to move forward with peace of mind.

The Client said, “William’s demeanor and attitude was a calming force during my difficult time. He clearly knew what he was doing and fought to make sure I could move on from my bad mistakes. He appreciated how the charge was going to affect my life. I appreciate the fight William and Speights Law put up on my behalf.”
