Contact Morton & Gettys for an experienced South Carolina DUI Lawyer

If you’re facing a DUI charge, it’s tempting to try to go it alone. That’s often a mistake. Though it might seem simple enough to plead guilty and go on with life, a DUI conviction can come with serious consequences down the road that haven’t even occurred to you yet.

Not to mention the fact that If you’ve been charged with drunk driving, you’ll be going up against prosecutors who try cases for a living every day. That’s why you need to balance the scales with an experienced DUI attorney from 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 attorney has the experience and insights you need. He’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.
