Criminal DefenseInnocent Until Proven Guilty
A criminal charge is not automatically a conviction, so remember that you are innocent until proven guilty. We represent clients charged with felonies and misdemeanors in South Carolina’s state courts, city or municipal courts and magistrate or summary courts. We will obtain all information from the police and prosecutors to investigate your case, as our goal is to get your charges dropped or reduced and ultimately, keep you from serving a jail sentence.
DUI & DUAC Charges
As a former DUI prosecutor in Greenville and Anderson Counties, and as an attorney who defends people charged with driving under the influence, Jason Elliott is experienced and skilled in DUI law. Representing a client charged with a DUI in South Carolina is complicated and you need an experienced DUI lawyer.
As soon as you are charged with a DUI, contact us immediately so we can examine your case and the evidence to ensure that your rights are protected. Remember that a DUI charge is not a DUI conviction. Our goal is to keep the DUI off your record and for you to keep your driver’s license.
Implied Consent and your Driver’s License
In South Carolina, if arrested for DUI, a driver gives implied consent to have his or her breath, blood or urine tested for alcohol or drugs. Most often, a person charged with DUI will be asked to submit to a breathalyzer (DataMaster) test.
Jason Elliott can help you if your driver’s license is suspended for failing to submit to testing or if you do perform the test and your blood alcohol level is above certain limits. You only have a limited amount of time in which you may apply for a hearing to seek reinstatement of your driver’s license. To help you get your driver’s license back, contact us as soon as possible.
