DUI and Felony DUI cases can benefit from strong representation

Across the state, people are arrested for DUI related incidents on a daily basis. Law enforcement officers are constantly on the lookout for individuals who are driving while impaired. The level of enforcement is particularly strong around holidays and summer vacation, as well as in popular vacation areas -- such as Myrtle Beach. While the need to keep roads safe for everyone is certainly understandable, those actually convicted of DUI charges typically face some pretty harsh penalties, whether the charge is a felony DUI charge or not.

With so much at stake, this individual would likely benefit from a strategic criminal defense presented on his behalf.
