Are you facing a DUI charge in South Carolina? Are you facing a drug charge?

Many clients’ first and only encounter with the criminal justice system is for a DUI charge. A DUI is a life-changing experience. Collateral consequences are tremendous. Perhaps a client over-indulged at a holiday party or had a few too many drinks while watching the game. No matter the reason, our Spartanburg DUI lawyers can help. We bring experience and knowledge to each DUI case we handle.

We also help clients with drug cases. We can help people who were charged with crimes involving marijuana, crystal meth, cocaine, prescription drugs, and other substances.

We represent clients charged with committing felony offenses and other serious crimes.

We help clients who have been accused of domestic violence, sex offenses (such as rape), murder, and other felonies and serious crimes. We know that a conviction leads to social stigma and serious, life-changing consequences. You may lose the right to carry a firearm. You may lose the opportunity to be employed by certain employers. You may lose the ability to rent a home or to move without having to register as a sex offender. Because we understand the gravity of these consequences, we are dedicated in our effort to achieve favorable outcomes for you.

We don’t judge our clients.

We understand that a theft charge may stem from a misunderstanding over who owns a piece of property. We understand that assault and domestic violence charges often involve people who care deeply about one another but who lost control during an argument. We understand that police officers sometimes make arrests without trying to sort out what actually happened and who was to blame.

We understand that there are two sides to every story. That’s why we do not judge our clients. That’s not our job. Our job is to provide the defense our clients need to stand up to those charges.
