We have Laurens County criminal defense lawyers who have worked as public defenders, we have worked as special prosecutors in the Eighth Judicial Circuit and we have done a significant amount of criminal defense work for major insurance companies. We represent everyone from the common citizen accused of driving while intoxicated to large commercial institutions, and we have been doing it since 1971.

We defend clients in South Carolina who have been accused of misdemeanors and felonies that include:

  • *Driving under the influence (DUI)/driving while intoxicated (DWI)

If not handled properly, criminal charges can negatively impact the rest of your life.

Our attorneys have extensive experience with the South Carolina criminal justice system and a reputation for aggressive defense against criminal charges. We can help you minimize the damage that these charges could have on your life.

University Crimes

One of the major focal points of our criminal defense practice is criminal charges against university students. We provide defense against university crime charges like disorderly conduct, drunk driving, drug possession and theft.
