Columbia, South Carolina
My legal practice is 100% devoted to criminal defense of both misdemeanor and serious felony charges. I have been a private criminal defense lawyer for nine years, after receiving three years of intensive trial training in the public defender's office.
The Law Office of David B. Tarr, LLC, is entirely committed to protecting the legal rights of criminal defendants. Over the course of my legal career, I have developed excellent working relationships with local prosecutors, which allow me to effectively negotiate plea bargains when appropriate, and to mount a vigorous defense before a jury if necessary. However, I have never worked as a prosecutor - my focus has always been on the needs of the criminal defendant. Every criminal defendant deserves a strong advocate to counter the weight given to police testimony and the prosecutor's arguments - and I am honored to have that as my chosen job.
If you or a family member has been arrested - whether on a misdemeanor or serious felony charge - contact my office immediately to discuss your rights and your options. My phones are answered 24 hours daily, and initial consultations are free of charge.
