DWI/DUI

dwi/dui picture

If you are arrested for DUI / DWI in South Carolina, you face the possibility of automatically losing your driver's license - even without being convicted. We are committed to protecting your rights under the law, and we have the skill and the experience needed to provide strong and effective advocacy on your behalf.

In drunk driving cases, the clock begins ticking immediately. Depending on your blood alcohol level (BAC), your license may be suspended, and you have a limited time frame in which to request an administrative hearing to get it back. If you don't request a hearing, the suspension will be automatically upheld, and you will lose your privilege to drive. If you are from out of state, you will lose your privilege to drive in South Carolina, and your conviction and suspension may be transferred back to your home state.

If you are convicted of DUI / DWI, you will have a criminal record. A second offense could result in up to a year in jail, and a third offense in the forfeiture of your car.

A drunk driving conviction in South Carolina carries civil consequences, as well. For the next three years, you will be required to purchase SR-22 insurance at several times the rates for regular insurance.

We urge you to contact us immediately if you have been charged with drunk driving. We will advise you of your rights, evaluate your case, and plan an effective defense strategy. We are experienced in all aspects of criminal defense. We will help you with both the criminal and civil aspects of your case.
