Criminal Defense Attorney Columbia, South Carolina

Underage DUI

You have too much at stake to wait to take legal action. Contact us

If you are under 21 years old and you have been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol in South Carolina, you need to contact a lawyer right away. Otherwise, you could lose your driver's license, be fined hundreds or thousands of dollars and possibly imprisoned for several days, months or even years depending on the circumstances of your case.

South Carolina's DUI laws have different rules that apply to underage drinkers. In particular, the legal threshold at which an underage driver is considered drunk in South Carolina is much lower: 0.02, compared to 0.08 for drivers who are 21 or older.

That's why it's critical that you contact attorney Matt Bodman right away if you have been charged with DUI. A former assistant solicitor, attorney Bodman has worked with many underage adults charged with drunk driving in Columbia and other cities throughout South Carolina. With an office only blocks away from the University of South Carolina campus, he's happy to work with college students and others charged with underage DUI.

How can attorney Bodman help me with my underage DUI charge?

Being charged with a crime is not the same as being convicted of one. That's why it's important that you take legal action right away. Otherwise, you could miss out on your opportunity to have your charges dismissed or your penalties reduced altogether.

As your attorney, Matt Bodman will aggressively investigate your drunk driving arrest. He'll review your arrest report and other official documents to determine if the arresting officer followed all the rules and regulations associated with drunk driving arrests.

We can also help you if you're from out of state and you were charged with drunk driving while visiting South Carolina. We will not rest until justice is served. Contact our law firm right now.
