Criminal Defense Lawyers Who Can Help You Reinstate Your Driver’s License
In South Carolina, a DUI/DWI conviction or a Breathalyzer test refusal will result in a driver’s license suspension. If you are pulled over while driving with a suspended license/driving under suspension, you may be taken to jail and face a longer license suspension.
You don’t want to risk more penalties. At Young & Young, Attorneys at Law, we can help you get your license back. Reinstating your driver’s license is a lengthy process that is best handled by an experienced criminal defense lawyer. We can defend you against the criminal DUI/DWI charges and represent you at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) administrative license hearing as well. As former prosecutors, we can identify weak points in the state’s case against you. We know what questions to ask and what arguments to make at each step of the case.
Your Driving Privileges Are At Stake
You must request a DMV administrative hearing within 30 days of your DUI/DWI arrest and/or notice of suspension. Do not miss this deadline. We can request the hearing on your behalf if you contact us right away.
If you are convicted of drunk driving charges, your license may be suspended for six months for a first offense. When appropriate, we will argue for a hardship license that allows you to drive on a limited basis to work, to school or to run family errands.
Your license can also be suspended if you are convicted of drug possession while in a vehicle or if you accumulate 12 traffic violation points. We represent people in all types of license suspension cases so speak with us to learn how we may help you reinstate your driving privileges.
