Mr. Hunsucker’s knowledge of the field is so vast that he was also brought in to help write the Minnesota, Florida, Georgia, Utah, Colorado, Maryland, District of Columbia, Central Texas, South Texas, and West Texas editions of the DUI Survival Guide series.
Holding a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Oklahoma, Mr. Hunsucker earned his J.D. from the Oklahoma City University School of Law in 1997. He is admitted to practice law in all Oklahoma state and municipal courts, as well as the Western District of the United States Federal Court and the United States Appellate Court for the Tenth Circuit.
Mr. Hunsucker spent the first year of his law career prosecuting DUIs as an Assistant District Attorney. This experience gave him invaluable insight into the strategies employed by state prosecutors—insight he uses to the benefit of his clients when defending DUI charges today.
