  • Federal crimes: These are among the most serious of all charges, often resulting from sophisticated and intense investigations by the FBI and other federal agencies. You will need a federal criminal defense lawyer on your side as soon as possible.
  • Traffic violations: These can range from speeding tickets to reckless driving, driving on a suspended license, and other offenses in which you may stand to lose your license.
  • Assault and battery: Because of the use of force or the threat of force, convictions for these offenses can be serious. We represent clients in third-, second-, and first-degree charges, as well as those of an aggravated nature.
  • Burglary: Charges related to burglary are also categorized according to degree, with the first degree being the most serious. These are felony crimes.
  • Gun crimes: Weapon charges are complicated and call for the services of a defender who understands the nuances of South Carolina gun laws.
  • Theft and shoplifting: Stealing merchandise, petty theft, and grand theft involve misdemeanors and felonies in which convictions can result in criminal penalties as well as harming future employment and other life opportunities.
  • Possession of stolen vehicles: The charges for this crime will depend on the value of the vehicle and range from misdemeanors to felonies.
  • Sex crimes: These are among the most serious and stigmatizing of all accusations. You will need an attorney who knows how to investigate and apply all necessary defense skills to help you fight back.
  • Violent crimes: Violent crimes include manslaughter, murder, attempted murder, arson, kidnapping, and more and rank among the most serious charges anyone can face.
  • White-collar crimes: These are generally nonviolent crimes committed for financial gain, such as identity theft, embezzlement, forgery, and various types of fraud against individuals, businesses, and governmental agencies.
