Strategizing a defense against a DUI charge

Much like other states, South Carolina treats drunk driving seriously. Thus, when a law enforcement officer suspects that a driver is under the influence of alcohol, he or she will perform a traffic stop. This can be an overwhelming experience, as no one expects to go through the embarrassment of a field sobriety test on the side of the road. However, this is the process officers use to determine if there is probable cause to administer a blood alcohol concentration test. Errors can be made during this step, though, and officers may place a driver under arrest even when there are holes in the case.

At the Hopkins Law Firm, LLC, our experienced attorneys know how to spot these holes. Even when evidence accumulates against a client, our law firm is able to determine what evidence will stick and what ones we may challenge. By poking holes in the case, our legal team seeks to weaken the case of the prosecution, helping our clients in the Pawleys Island area reduce and even dismiss the charges against them.

Even when our clients believe that they do not have a chance to clear their name, our law firm understands that criminal defense capabilities exist for everyone. There may be ways or options to lessen the penalties the accused is facing. We look at the details of the stop. Was it a legal traffic stop? We consider the evidence collected at the site. Did officers comply with the standards when collecting evidence? Did they properly complete a blood alcohol test? When the answer is no, our legal team takes action to protect the rights of our clients.
