harrassment

Harassment lawsuits include bullying, hate crimes, stalking and more. If you’ve found yourself in a situation that could be qualified as harassment, understanding your rights and the best way to proceed will help create the best possible outcome.

Pardons

Restoring your rights, including your right to own a gun, to sit on a jury, and to hold a professional license, is incredibly important to many people. You can restore these rights and others by petitioning for a pardon from the State of South Carolina. Receiving a pardon can take over 9 months and be a tedious process. Hiring an attorney can help ensure that you get expert advice and have the best possible chance of getting your rights restored.

Bond Issues

Most of the time the defendant does not have an attorney with him at their first hearing, and that can lead to an unnecessarily high bond. However, bonds in South Carolina are determined on a case-by-case basis, which gives a good attorney room to put your individual situation in front of the judge at a second bond hearing, and get you a more reasonable bond and possibly a PR bond. If you need help getting a reasonable bond and getting out of jail, we can help.

Driver's License Suspension

There are a variety of ways a person can get their driver’s license suspended, ranging from speeding tickets and traffic violations to DUIs. If your license is suspended, Sarah can help you get it back as quickly as possible.

Theft

Theft cases, including burglary and robbery cases, require special understanding. Depending on the amount stolen, someone accused of theft can face either a misdemeanor or felony charges, including the possibility of jail time.
