PASSIONATE DEFENSE REPRESENTATION

Let's Change The Outcome

How common are DUI arrests?

Throughout South Carolina, countless individuals have been charged with drunk driving at one time or another. Some have escaped conviction, whereas others were not that fortunate. In either case, the preceding process is much the same. Officers attempt to determine your blood alcohol concentration and find out whether it is in excess of the legal limit.

You might be Breathalyzed or asked to perform field sobriety tests. Officers may also ask you about any alcohol or drugs that you might have consumed prior to being stopped. If you are charged, this could then mean a lengthy investigation and the possibility that you will need to state your case in a court of law. However, it is important to remain collected and not act impulsively as this could affect the future of your case.

As this article on drunk driving mentions, more than a million drivers, on average, are arrested for driving while affected by drugs or alcohol each year. As such, it’s hardly surprising that so many people end up with some form of a mark on their criminal record as a result. However, this does not have to happen. With the right defense, it might be possible to avoid a conviction altogether.

Admittedly, this can be a lot to handle alone, particularly if you are not familiar with the complexities of DUI legislation. Fortunately, an attorney may be able to help you. He or she can advise you on how to form your defense and may even be able to support you as you prepare for your trial. With this guidance, you can increase your chances of ensuring the court hears your side of the story, as you work to clear your name and secure a fair resolution to your case.
