If you or a loved one have been arrested for DUI in James Island, it is critical that you contact a James Island DUI lawyer immediately to ensure that your rights are protected during each phase of the criminal justice process. South Carolina state law defines DUI as the following:

It is unlawful for a person to drive a motor vehicle within this State while under the influence of alcohol to the extent that the person's faculties to drive a motor vehicle are materially and appreciably impaired, under the influence of any other drug or a combination of other drugs or substances which cause impairment to the extent that the person's faculties to drive a motor vehicle are materially and appreciably impaired, or under the combined influence of alcohol and any other drug or drugs or substances which cause impairment to the extent that the person's faculties to drive a motor vehicle are materially and appreciably impaired. (SC Code Section 56 5 2930(A)(1))

In South Carolina DUI charges that result in conviction can carry substantial penalties including fines, jail time, driver's license suspension or revocation and additional requirements such as ADSAP and the costly burden of the SR-22 insurance requirement. The severity of these potential penalties increases substantially, particularly in terms of duration, for 2nd and subsequent DUI charges and even more substantially where the charge involves a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of at least .10. Being charged with driving under the influence in South Carolina is something to be taken very seriously, and James Island DUI lawyers can work with you to minimize potential negative outcomes. After an arrest for DUI in James Island, time can be a critical factor, and it is essential that a James Island DUI lawyer analyze your case and all of your legal options directly from the start. James Island DUI lawyers will also be able to assess potential issues relating to the charge, including any potential issues with breathalyzers or field sobriety tests as well as issues relating to refusals of breath tests and Temporary Alcohol Restricted License (TARL) eligibility.
