DUI Criminal Defense Lawyer in Greenville
Are You Facing a Suspended License or Jail Time?
Under South Carolina Law, driving under the influence (DUI) is defined
as driving a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or substances
that cause impairment to the extent that the person's facilities are
appreciably impaired. The legal blood alcohol concentration (Hisker Law
Firm, PCBAC) limit is .08 in South Carolina, and registering a BAC over
this limit can lead to up to 90 days in jail for your first offense, as
well as up to 7 years in prison after multiple offenses. Not only are
you facing jail or prison time, but you may even have your driver's
license suspended for an extended period of time.
Our experienced legal team can strengthen your DUI defense by looking at:
- Did the arresting officer have any legal reason to pull you over in the
- Can the police officer prove that you were driving, if you were involved
in an accident?
- Were you read your rights before being questioned?
- Was the breath machine properly maintained and functioning?
- Were your driving, field sobriety tests, and breath tests videotaped by
the police officer?
We'll review your case and help you explore your options.
