DUI Attorney Lexington, SC - DUI Lawyers

Driving under the influence in South Carolina is a serious and complex crime.  There are a number of different charges that can arise out of a drunk-driving charge, including felony DUI involving death, felony DUI involving serious bodily injury, first offense driving under the influence and subsequent offenses, driving with an unlawful alcohol concentration and boating under the influence.

 

 These statutory offenses all have serious consequences, including possible jail sentence, fines, suspension of your driver’s license and an increase in requirements for insurance, including SR-22 insurance.  Additionally, there is often an administrative aspect to these cases as driver’s license suspension, issued under the implied-consent law for failure to submit to breath, blood or urine sampling for chemical substances can have separate civil penalties and result in separate driver’s license suspensions. 

 

 It is important to have experienced, professional representation when you are charged with any of these offenses.  The penalties can be enhanced for subsequent offenses and can remain on your driver’s license record for ten years and may remain on your criminal record permanently.  Having counsel who is familiar with the standards and requirements for probable cause to stop and charge someone with driving under the influence or a related crime is crucial.  The lawyers at the Davis Frawley Law Firm who handle these types of criminal cases are experienced and knowledgeable about the requirements for field-sobriety testing; the operation of and requirements for implied-consent testing, including the DataMaster machine; drug recognition experts; and the statutory and case law which is relevant to your case.  The lawyers at the Davis Frawley Law Firm handling these cases have over 30 years of experience in trying these cases and continue to remain up-to-date on revisions in the law and the latest developments in this practice area.
