South Carolina DUI/DWI

Since 2007, there has been a great deal of media publicity about high rates of drinking and driving in South Carolina. The General Assembly has responded to the public’s concerns by enacting very strict laws against drinking and driving, including loss of driving privileges, large fines, and mandatory jail time.

Drunk driving charges must be taken seriously. If you are convicted of a first offense DUI in South Carolina, you are required to surrender your driver’s license for up to one year and to obtain SR-22 motor vehicle insurance for three years, costing thousands of dollars per year more than standard auto insurance. You are also required to complete an alcohol awareness program and pay a $100 fee in order to have your driver’s license reinstated after the suspension. Anyone facing a DUI charge in South Carolina faces as much as $10,000.00 in fines and increased insurance costs if convicted.

At Leventis & Ransom, we understand that just being charged with or suspected of drunk driving is not always the same as being guilty of it. We are serious about fighting unsubstantiated DUI (Driving Under the Influence) charges. We will use our experience to work to defend your rights and protect your interests.

We offer free initial consultations in DUI/DWI cases

We handle most drunk driving offenses on a flat-fee basis. You will know up front how much out skilled representation will cost.

Both of our attorneys have over 30 years of experience helping people in Columbia and throughout South Carolina. We understand how the criminal court system works and we know how to defend against DUI/DWI charges. Our office will examine the evidence against you, looking for opportunities to defeat the charges. Our first goal will be to have the charges reduced or eliminated entirely. If no opportunities exist for us to have the charges dismissed, we will then turn our attention to minimizing the consequences you may face if we are unable to obtain an acquittal at trial.

One of the most common consequences of a DUI/DWI charge is the administrative suspension of your driver’s license. At our office, we understand how important your ability to drive is. We will work hard to see that you are able to retain that ability.

We believe in bolstering your strong legal representation with a commitment to personal attention. When you choose us to represent you, we will take the time to explain all of the steps involved in your case. We will remain in contact with you throughout the process, providing you with updates and answering any questions you may have.
