It is important to consult a lawyer to ensure you protect your rights when you have been charged with driving under the influence.
DUI is a unique criminal offense in that the “fact” that a crime was even committed is a matter of opinion.
Driving Under the Influence is a serious criminal accusation. The consequences of a conviction can be life changing. If you have been accused of driving under the influence you need a knowledgeable and experienced DUI trial attorney. Drew Carroll has devoted more than sixteen years of his career to defending DUI cases in South Carolina. Drew has successfully resolved more than a thousand DUI cases both at trial and through pre-trial negotiations. He has regularly trained with the most advanced DUI defense lawyers and non-lawyer experts in the country, and has served as a member of the Teaching Faculty of the National College for DUI Defense since that designation was adopted in 2013.
DUI cases are not simple traffic offenses, these are often complex criminal cases made by specially trained DUI Task Force officers. These DUI Task Force officers patrol the roadways with the specific mission of making DUI arrests. Law Enforcement officers are trained to use specific standardized tools while investigating a suspected DUI case. Among the investigative tools commonly used by well trained law enforcement officers are Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, Drug Recognition Evaluations and breath, blood or urine tests.
To be effective, a DUI defense lawyer can leave nothing to chance, but must have a thorough understanding of the tools used to investigate and prosecute a driver suspected of driving under the influence. Drew has completed National Patent Analytical Systems’ breath-testing course on the DataMaster DMT; the only device approved for breath-testing in South Carolina. He has also successfully completed NHTSA’s Standardized Field Sobriety Test Student Training Course and the IACP Drug Recognition and Evaluation Course.
