Lexington County SC DUI Law

DUI Defense Attorney

The Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC, located in downtown Lexington, represents clients charged with DUI, DUAC and other criminal offenses. Our DUI law is based on S.C. Code § 56-5-2930. This offense makes it unlawful to operate a motor vehicle while "materially and appreciably impaired." Whether or not someone is guilty of DUI in South Carolina is not a question for law enforcement, it is a question that can only be answered by a Court.

Many arrests made by the Highway Patrol or Sheriff's Department will be initially referred to the Lexington County Traffic Court, 139 East Main Street, Lexington, South Carolina 29072. This Court is held in the old Courthouse located at the corner of South Lake Drive and East Main Street in downtown Lexington. Additionally Highway Patrol cases, once notified of any challenge to the case, are referred to the Lexington County DUI Court which is located in the same building.

We assist our clients in challenging by challenging DUI arrests based on faulty or unreliable police investigations. We also represent clients for whom a conviction would have a significant negative impact on their personal or professional lives. In South Carolina every DUI conviction comes with a permanent criminal record, driver's license suspension, mandatory alcohol counseling and either a jail or fine sentence.

If you are facing any Lexington County SC DUI charge contact the Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC, for an initial consultation. When you call you will be scheduled for an appointment with a Lexington SC Dui Defense Attorney who will meet with you personally to discuss your individual case and answer any questions you may have about Lexington County SC DUI Law.
