South Carolina DUI lawyers at Morton & Gettys
If you’re facing a DUI charge, it’s tempting to try to go it alone. Plead guilty, do some community service and move on with life.
That’s often a mistake. If you’ve been charged with drunk driving, you’ll be going up against prosecutors who do this for a living every day. That’s why you need to balance the scales with an experienced DUI attorney such as the ones at Morton & Gettys.
A DUI lawyer can help you with all aspects of the case, from the courtroom to administrative procedures before the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles. At Morton & Gettys, our drunk driving attorneys have the experience and insights you need. They’ll put that experience to work to fight for the best possible outcome for you.
Other consequences of a DUI conviction
With drunk driving cases, fines and court costs are only the beginning of the possible financial toll. You could lose your license for up to three months for a first offense DUI and for longer periods for subsequent drunk driving convictions. If you drive for a living, your livelihood could be in peril. Even if driving is only a small part of what you do, your job still could be at risk. There’s a very good chance your insurance rates will go up, too.
Remember, too, that a DUI conviction is a blot that stays on your record for a decade.
