Your Myrtle Beach DUI Lawyer

Driving under the influence, or DUI, is one of the most common criminal offenses here in Myrtle Beach, but that doesn't mean that these charges are not serious. South Carolina aggressively prosecutes these cases, which can carry harsh penalties including jail time, steep fines, suspension of driving privileges, ignition interlock device installation, and more.

As DUI cases involve a criminal and an administrative component, it is extremely important to hire a DUI lawyer as soon as possible to ensure that the various complexities of your case are addressed properly. An experienced attorney can provide you with the guidance you need to navigate both aspects of the case and pursue the best possible outcome, whether that is a reduction of charges or even a complete dismissal.

You must request an administrative hearing within 30 days of your arrest to contest an automatic suspension of your license. Don't wait another moment—call Mr. Truslow now to work with the preeminent DUI lawyer in Myrtle Beach.

What Do Criminal Defense Lawyers Do

Criminal defense lawyers, also known as defense attorneys, specialize in representing individuals or entities accused of committing a crime. Their primary role is to defend their clients and protect their rights throughout the criminal justice process. Here are some key tasks and responsibilities of criminal defense lawyers:

  • Legal advice and counseling: Criminal defense lawyers provide legal advice and counseling to their clients regarding their rights, potential defenses, and the legal process they are facing.
  • Case analysis and strategy development: Defense lawyers thoroughly analyze the facts and evidence of their clients' cases to develop a strong defense strategy. This includes identifying legal issues, evaluating the strength of the prosecution's case, and determining the best course of action.
  • Representation in court: Defense lawyers represent their clients in all court proceedings, including arraignments, bail hearings, pretrial motions, trial proceedings, and sentencing hearings. They advocate for their clients' interests and present their case to the court.
  • Negotiation with prosecutors: Defense lawyers negotiate with prosecutors to reach plea agreements or settlements that are favorable to their clients. This may involve bargaining for reduced charges, lesser sentences, or alternative sentencing options.
  • Trial advocacy: If a case goes to trial, defense lawyers serve as their clients' advocates in court. They present evidence, cross-examine witnesses, make legal arguments, and challenge the prosecution's case to defend against the charges.
  • Protection of rights: Defense lawyers ensure that their clients' constitutional rights are protected throughout the legal process. This includes the right to a fair trial, the right to remain silent, and the right to legal counsel.
  • Client support and guidance: Defense lawyers provide support and guidance to their clients, helping them understand the legal process, preparing them for court appearances, and addressing any concerns or questions they may have.

Overall, criminal defense lawyers play a critical role in the criminal justice system by defending the rights of individuals accused of crimes and advocating for fair treatment under the law. They work diligently to achieve the best possible outcomes for their clients given the circumstances of their cases.
