With an estimated 10 million visitors each year, South Carolina's Grand Strand beaches and resorts see plenty of arrests for drunk driving. If you have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) or driving with unlawful alcohol concentration (DWUAC or DUAC) in Myrtle Beach or any nearby community, find out how you can benefit from the advice of a local criminal defense attorney who has successfully represented hundreds of local and out-of-state clients.
Our lawyers examine the charges against you and the circumstances of your arrest and blood alcohol test to identify the best options for your defense.
In some cases, we can show that there was no probable cause to stop your car or motorcycle, and get the DUI or DUAC charges dropped. In other cases, we can spot problems with the blood alcohol evidence and defend you effectively in plea negotiations or at trial.
We represent locals and tourists, adults and juveniles, commercial drivers and college students, and anyone else in need of a solid DUI defense. We'll advise you about your rights and the strengths and weaknesses of your case. If we believe that you have little chance of beating the charge, we'll let you know, and we'll concentrate on protecting your driver's license and minimizing your exposure to punishment. In many cases, we can help limit the penalty to community service, which can be carried out in your home state if you are visiting from elsewhere.
Our experience with DUI defense and our familiarity with the local courts and prosecutors can give you an important advantage, whether you live in Myrtle Beach or you're visiting from another state. People facing repeat or felony DUI charges can count on us to protect their interests as well.
