There could be defenses that could minimize the penalties or lead to an outright dismissal.
Aggressive Action After A Drunk Driving Arrest
You are likely aware of the potential penalties for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, including license suspension, jail time, probation and fines. There are also ramifications for your employment, insurance and your standing in the community.
Our DUI attorneys at Ryan Beasley Law have decades of experience. We can identify potential defense plans for any charge of driving under the influence (DUI) or driving with an unlawful alcohol concentration (DUAC).
Whatever the circumstances, we know how to present the strongest drunk driving defense. We have experience with every scenario:
- Theft and burglary charges
- Refusal of the breath test
- Arrests at DUI checkpoints
- Alcohol-related accidents
Whatever the circumstances, we know how to present the strongest drunk driving defense. We have experience with every scenario.
A drunk driving arrest with a prior DUI or in connection with a car accident is prosecuted and punished all the more harshly than a first conviction.
The law cracks down harder on under-21 drivers. An underage DUI can hamper a young person’s opportunities in higher education and employment.
Failed Tests or Refusal
A good defense lawyer can challenge the basis for arrest and any resulting evidence from a roadside sobriety test.
Challenging a DUI
Being pulled over and arrested for DUI is a scary experience. There are still opportunities to fight this if you promptly hire an experienced team of defense attorneys.
Your Justice Is Our Priority
In any DUI arrest, there are a number of defenses. We have successfully challenged DUIs on the basis of reasonable suspicion for the traffic stop, the legitimacy of field sobriety tests (FSTs), how the Breathalyzer test was performed and other grounds. Our team will closely examine the evidence in your case to find flaws in the government’s case.
Protecting You Against All Consequences Of A DUI Charge
Every DUI charge has two components: the criminal charge and the civil case. Your civil case, before the South Carolina DMV, will determine whether your license will be suspended. You have the right to request a hearing before the DMV within 30 days of your arrest. If successful, we can help you keep your driving privileges. These hearings are also an excellent opportunity to get an early look at the government’s case against you.schedule confidential consultation
