DUI Defense Attorney

DUI Defense Attorney Columbia SCMore innocent people are charged with DUI than any other crime in South Carolina every day. Literally, thousands of people are wrongfully accused in South Carolina of DUI every year. You need an experienced DUI Defense Attorney early in your case to protect your privilege to drive and increasing your chances of avoiding a conviction.

If you are suspected of driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you may be arrested for DUI (driving under the influence). DUIs are the most legally complex misdemeanor case because of the vast legal issues associated with them.  People, like you, are victims of law enforcement, who far too often rush to judgment and assume you are driving under the influence, while more often than not there is an innocent explanation for the situation.

Including such issues as, potential stop and seizure issues related to the vehicle being pulled over, the driver being pulled out of the car for further investigation, the driver being requested to conduct field sobriety exercises or tests, etc. Additionally, there is extensive caselaw regarding the standards to request someone submit to a breathalyzer or urine test. It is critical to retain an attorney for these cases given their complex nature and the potentially serious penalties.

A DUI conviction is one of the most expensive crimes you can be convicted of because of the high court costs, very high fines, probation costs, restitution and increases in insurance premiums. DUIs are governed by S.C. Code Ann. § 56-5-2930.
