DUI / DUAC Defense
Founder Mark A. Mason has previously acted as prosecuting attorney for the Town of Mount Pleasant, the City of Charleston, the Town of Sullivan’s Island and the City of Goose Creek. He has extensive experience prosecuting and defending DUI cases at both the trial and appellate levels.
Defense of a DUI charge involves the investigation and development of many legal and factual issues including whether the arresting officer had probable cause to initiate a traffic stop, whether required legal procedures for alcohol testing were followed, including the proper administration of field sobriety tasks and, in today’s hi-tech world, whether videotaped evidence obtained from police vehicles, body cameras and the breath testing site are properly admissible in court.
It is not against the law to have a drink and drive. In order to convict for driving under the influence, the State must prove beyond any reasonable doubt that the person charged was driving and was intoxicated to the extent that their ability to drive was materially and appreciably impaired. If you have been charged with DUI in South Carolina, you have the right to demand a trial by jury.
