Why should I hire attorney Bodman to handle my case?

In 2002, Bodman founded his own private practice in Columbia, S.C. Since then, he has vigorously fought for the rights of people charged with a crime. His meticulously, detail-oriented approach has routinely resulted in charges being dropped, dismissed or ended with other favorable outcomes.

Aggressive South Carolina criminal defense lawyer you can trust

You might think you can handle your case on your own. Don't make that mistake. A judge will treat you the same way he or she treats an attorney. You'll need to meet deadlines, follow the rules of the court, understand legal language, abide by the rules of evidence, and know other important courtroom procedures.  Criminal cases can quickly become very complicated. And if you don't know how the legal system works, you could find yourself convicted of a serious crime.

"A criminal conviction can have serious consequences," Bodman said. "You could be fined thousands of dollars or sentenced to prison for several months or even years. Then there are the unofficial consequences of a conviction. The stigma of a criminal record can prevent people from getting certain jobs, loans and could put up other barriers."

For more information, contact Attorney Bodman and find out what he can do for you. Call (866) 487-9077. Our office is conveniently located in downtown Columbia. We're ready and eager to meet with you.
