Protect Your Driving Privileges and Stay Out of Jail

DUI enforcement is extensive and aggressive in South Carolina. Your Charleston DUI attorney must be aggressive as well. Ideally, your lawyer should have years of experience, with a strong track record of successful case outcomes.

Have you been caught up in South Carolina's "Sober or Slammer" anti-DUI/DWI campaign? Were you arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol because you were snagged in a so-called sobriety checkpoint trap? Did police consider you guilty before investigating the facts simply because you had alcohol on your breath? Is "buzzed driving" really drunk driving, as the publicity campaign states?

A Drunk Driving Arrest Does Not Equate to a Guilty Verdict!

One of the first topics of discussion during your free consultation is a review of this simple truth as it relates to your drunk driving arrest:

Being stopped or arrested or charged with driving under the influence of alcohol does not mean you have been proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Contrary to popular belief, it is not against the law to drink and then drive. Rather, it is against the law to drive while appreciably impaired: mentally, physically and materially. A prosecutor has the burden of proof as to your impairment. An effective DUI defense attorney takes up the challenge of protecting your rights through all phases of a drunk driving case.

You may believe that you "failed" a sobriety test because a police officer insinuated as much before arresting you. In fact, ordinary people routinely make common mistakes while performing ordinary actions during sobriety tests. A poor outcome during a sobriety test is not the equivalent of a guilty DUI verdict in a court of law.
