Our attorneys all began their legal careers as prosecutors in Travis County. Chris Gunter was chief of the trial division of the Travis County Attorney’s Office before moving to the District Attorney’s Office. Alan Bennett also worked as an Assistant County Attorney and Assistant District Attorney. Gene Anthes, who joined the firm in 2007, also began his career as an Assistant County Attorney in the Family Violence section. The knowledge and experience we acquired as prosecutors have benefited us greatly in defending our clients over the past 25 years.

Board certified in criminal law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 1985, Chris Gunter has tried hundreds of cases ranging from capital murder to public intoxication. In 1992 Alan Bennett joined the firm and since then the firm has worked tirelessly to help those who are in trouble. Each client we accept can be assured of our personal attention and dedicated representation.

Gunter and Bennett has established an outstanding reputation in handling a wide variety of criminal cases involving crimes of violence – murder, assault, robbery, kidnapping, sexual assault, indecency with a child and injury to a child – as well as other sex related offenses such as possession of child pornography and indecent exposure.

Property crimes and drug offenses are also a significant part of our work – theft, embezzlement, burglary, credit card abuse, fraud, money laundering, and possession and delivery of controlled substances.
