McLawhorn Legal concentrates on DUI Defense cases in Columbia, South Carolina.

McLawhorn Legal has the experience and will aggressively represent you in your DUI case.

A driving under the influence (DUI) charge can result in serious legal consequences that can affect your freedom and your ability to drive.

If you have a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent or higher, it will be inferred that you are driving under the influence under South Carolina law. In South Carolina, a conviction for DUI can result in jail time, fines, and suspension of your driver’s license. South Carolina DUI laws are complex and require law enforcement officers to strictly comply with the law. Some of these requirements include, but are not limited to:

  • video recording the traffic stop once the officer activates the blue lights;
  • reading Miranda rights before you are arrested at the scene; and
  • informing you of your rights under the implied consent law and the consequences of refusing to submit to a breathalyzer, urine, or blood test.

We can help defend:

  • DUI
  • Felony DUI
  • Driving with an unlawful alcohol concentration (DUAC)
