Assertive South Carolina DUI/DWI Attorney Protects Your Rights

Tough criminal defense lawyer fights for your driving privileges in the Horry or Georgetown County areas

Being convicted of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated can have serious consequences, including loss of your license, higher insurance premiums, heavy fines and jail time. If you were stopped and charged with a DUI/DWI/DUAC in the Horry or Georgetown County areas or anywhere in South Carolina, The Law Office Of Michael J. O'Sullivan, LLC can provide the diligent defense you deserve. Our attorney understands that good people can make mistakes and that breathalyzers can give false readings. We have the knowledge and tenacity to challenge the evidence against you and pursue the best possible outcome.

Determined South Carolina advocates challenge drunk driving charges

A law enforcement officer’s quest for an arrest or a prosecutor’s desire for a conviction should never take priority over your right to fair treatment. We may be able to have charges thrown out by demonstrating that an equipment or procedural error resulted in an unfair charge. We will examine whether or not law enforcement followed proper protocol in regard to:

  • The stop — Police must be able to demonstrate that they pulled you over based on “reasonable suspicion” that you were acting in violation of the law.
  • The equipment — Breathalyzer machines have provided inaccurate results in the past, and their reliability can be questioned.
  • The arrest — For an arrest to be valid, an officer must inform you of your Miranda rights.
  • The evidence — Blood samples and other types of evidence must be stored in certain conditions in order to maintain their integrity.

By challenging these procedures, our committed DUI attorney will strive to get you the respect you deserve and the results you desire.

Knowledgeable counselors provide advice on handling DUI stops

If you are ever pulled over by the police on suspicion of drunk driving, there are several ways you can help yourself:

  • Don’t be intimidated — If you are nervous, police officers may think that you are hiding something or are intoxicated. Remain calm and be polite.
  • Don’t allow a search without a warrant — Any evidence police find in your car can be used to support a DUI conviction.
  • Be polite and respectful – You should always be polite and respect full to the officer during your interaction with him, but that does not mean that you can’t politely refuse any and all tests if you wish.

If you are arrested and charged with impaired driving, contact a DWI attorney immediately. We can start working on your defense as soon as you call us for help.
