Experienced Help For DUI-DUAC Charges

Unfortunately, it's not that difficult to be charged with a DUI in South Carolina. Stopping after work for a few drinks on the way home, or a weekend party at a friend's home, can lead to an unpleasant discussion with a law enforcement officer on the side of a road. If they believe you have had too much to drink, a trip to the police station and an encounter with a breath testing device is likely to follow.

You Must Act Immediately

A DUI or driving with an unlawful alcohol concentration (DUAC) may look like any other traffic violation, but it's far more serious. It carries a misdemeanor level charge and could be a felony if it is the result of a fourth or more DUI charges. DUI penalties can range from a few hundreds to as much as $10,000. The effect of these charges can be long lasting and interfere your ability to obtain insurance, financial aid, where you can live and the type of jobs you may be able to obtain.

In less serious cases, you still need to act to avoid increased insurance costs or the loss of your license. For most people, a DUI or DUAC charge may be their first criminal charge and they have no experience dealing with law enforcement or prosecutors.
