Attorney Gary Churak Has Been Practicing in the San Antonio Area for 32 Years
Gary: My name is Gary Churak. I’ve been a practicing attorney in the San Antonio area for 32 years and I’ve handled literally thousands of cases in that time period.
Interviewer: What inspired you to go into criminal defense work in the first place? What motivated you?
Attorney Churak Primarily Handles Criminal Defense Cases
Gary: I was doing civil for a while and I just got tired of volume of the paperwork and dealing with all of the issues with the civil cases, so I switched over to doing 100% criminal cases about 10 years ago.
Interviewer: And how have you found it since you started doing criminal work? Is it more fulfilling? Is it better?
Gary: Yes, this area of the law suits me better. I enjoy trial work and that’s what basically criminal law all about. I find preparing for trial stimulating. With criminal cases, either you’re going to try it or you’re going to plead it or it gets dismissed. So, there’s not a whole lot of gray area in criminal law.
