Quality DUI/DWI Defense for Individuals Throughout South Carolina Since 1995
At my law firm, the Law Office of David B. Tarr, LLC, I focus my practice 100 percent on providing strong criminal defense services to individuals facing a range of criminal charges, including drunk driving. From my days as a public defender more than 15 years ago to my time now as a sole practitioner, I have dedicated my entire legal career to protecting the rights of people just like you.
As your dedicated Columbia DUI lawyer, I can provide you with the experienced representation you require regardless of the type of charge or hearing you are facing:
I can assist you in understanding the full impact a DUI conviction can have on your life and explain in detail all of the DUI penalties you may be facing. For instance, if you are charged with DUI while driving a commercial truck or company car, you could lose your job. Or, if you received a DUI after being in an accident, you could face additional criminal charges.
I Will Seek to Use All Potential Defenses in Your Case
I understand the nuances of South Carolina's drunk driving laws and police procedure. I will use my knowledge to sow the seeds of doubt regarding whether you were stopped properly, your Breathalyzer test was correctly administered, or the police violated your rights. I will work to show that sobriety tests are designed for failure and argue for a dismissal or reduction of the charges against you. I know what it takes to be able to negotiate for lesser, alternative penalties.
