Lexington DUI Defense Lawyer
Being arrested for driving under the influence can be a stressful and intimidating experience. DUI enforcement and prosecution in South Carolina have become increasingly intense in recent years. Understanding the complexity of drunk driving laws in South Carolina can take years. Prior to opening the Law Offices of C. Dayton Riddle III, L.L.C., I gained extensive experience with drunk driving cases. I have been practicing law for 28 years and, as a former prosecutor, I have developed a deep understanding of all aspects of South Carolina DUI laws.
Students, professionals and individuals from all walks of life can face DUI charges (sometimes referred to as DWI charges). If you have been accused of drunk driving in South Carolina, it is vital that you consult with a knowledgeable DUI defense attorney in Lexington who will protect your rights. Whether you think your arrest was fair or not, a DUI conviction will have long-term consequences.
Among the most common adverse effects of a DUI conviction are:
- License suspension
- Potential jail or prison time
- Increased car insurance premiums
- Enhancements on future DUI charges
- The conviction will appear in background checks into the future
Benefit From A DUI Defense Strategy Prepared By A Former Prosecutor
I prosecuted many DUI cases while working with the solicitor’s office. I now use the skills and knowledge that I developed as a prosecutor to rigorously defend individuals in all aspects of a DUI case. There is no one-size-fits-all DUI defense. I will listen to your concerns to understand your goals. I will keep you informed of your options and rigorously protect your rights to achieve the best possible outcome.
No case is too complex. I can help in all types and aspects of DUI cases, including:
- Defending against first-time offenses
- Protecting your license in an administrative hearing
- Defending in repeat and felony DUI cases
