A drunk driving charge or conviction is a serious offense. If your blood alcohol content (BAC) level exceeds a certain amount or you are a repeat offender, you can face severe penalties. The laws in South Carolina have become more rigorous involving:
Suspension of licenses
Even more serious are felony DUI offenses. Not only can you lose your license to drive, but it can impair your ability to gain future employment. Furthermore, the fines involved with a DUI offense can be overwhelmingly expensive, and your insurance rates can skyrocket. It is best to consult with an experienced lawyer to discuss your options.

Former Richland County Prosecutor Turned Criminal Defense Attorney
In 2008, Victor began his legal career in the Fifth Judicial Circuit working as a prosecutor for then Solicitor Barney Giese.

Experienced Criminal Lawyer in Columbia, South Carolina
In 2014, Victor was instrumental in reforming the City of Columbia Police Department's drug lab. He effectively challenged the drug analysis of the department's drug chemist by showing that the reported drug weight was grossly exaggerated. Because of his work, not only was his client protected from false prosecution, but so were hundreds of other defendants who would have been victims of shoddy police work.
