Richland County DUI Lawyer

Facing criminal charges of drinking and driving can cause a great deal of emotional hardship and uncertainty. If you have been arrested and charged with this crime, then you need skilled representation on your side that can aggressively fight for your rights, your goals, and your desires regarding the outcome of your case. I am Attorney Farley and I have been representing the residents of Richland County, South Carolina for a number of years, with a long history of success. I work aggressively to pursue the outcome that my clients need, and if you choose to work with me, then you can be sure that I will stand by you throughout the duration of your case.

Richland County is an area of South Carolina that carries a population of roughly 370,000 residents as of 2009, and covers 756 square miles. There are many individuals who travel on highways and private roads to get to work, and to other places such as school or events. It is estimated that 77% of residents drive alone in their car to work, 12% carpool, and the rest utilized public or other means of transportation. 89% of residents are estimated to take up space on roadways throughout Richland County; this results in highly crowded roadways. When traffic safety laws are not followed, the results can be catastrophic, and people could be arrested and charged with a criminal offense.

If you are pulled over, and a police officer suspects you to be driving under the influence of alcohol, then you may be asked to perform some field sobriety tests. It is important for you to know two things regarding these tests:

  • They are not pass or fail tests, and they are designed for the sole purpose of gathering enough evidence to warrant an arrest
  • You can legally refuse to perform these tests without incurring penalties for refusal
