We Win DUI Conviction Appeals
DUI Appeal Lawyer Serving The Charleston Area
There are many reasons to appeal a DUI conviction and several ways to win on appeal, or at least get the consequences of the conviction reduced. You have the right to appeal after pleading guilty or after either a bench or a jury trial.
If you hope to win a DUI conviction appeal in South Carolina, it is critical that you retain representation from an experienced DUI defense lawyer who has had successes on appeals.
the DUI defense team at Drennan Law Firm has been handling appeals cases for years. We take on cases for people who have been convicted in Charleston area courts on all types of DUI charges:
- First-time DUI appeals
- Underage DUI appeals
- Second-offense DUI appeals
- Third-offense DUI appeals
- Fourth-offense DUI appeals
- Felony DUI appeals
- DUI accident appeals
We do our own appellate work, and we take cases to county circuit courts, the South Carolina Court of Appeals and the South Carolina Supreme Court, as necessary. We are prepared to take felony cases to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Can You Appeal a DUI Conviction if You Pleaded Guilty?
Yes, and a successful appeal will result in reduction or possible dismissal of charges. We will work to get the conviction removed from your criminal record and restore your reputation and driving privileges.
Our team will closely examine your case and relieve you of all legal burdens. If your initial case included legal errors, police officer procedure errors, misrepresentation by your lawyer, inaccurate breath test results or misinformation provided to you about the consequences of a guilty plea, you stand a good chance of winning an appeal.
Other grounds for an appeal may include your lack of legal competence or failure to understand your full legal rights. Defendants who are young, suffer from mental issues or have special needs may often appeal on such grounds.
