I decided to become an attorney to help people fight for their rights, be it on the criminal side, the civil side, or even in administrative hearings. There are times when just having an attorney by your side can open up options in court that appearing on your own can not. These are things you cannot take for granted. Even if a case has been heard and adjudicated, there are still options to mitigate or relieve some of the repercussions, particularly with criminal cases. Expungements can be an option, depending on the conviction(s), time lapsed and past criminal history. Sometimes pardons can be attained through the state of South Carolina, which can reinstate some of your rights as a citizen. Criminal convictions that are serious enough can greatly impact your Second Amendment rights to vote and even own or purchase a firearm.
The bottom line is that I want to fight for you. If you are having a court case, odds are you need someone to fight for you. There are plenty of attorneys in the Charleston area. If you don't choose me, make sure you do your research and choose a competent attorney with a solid reputation from their clients. Initial consultations are free, either over the phone or in person. If you work long hours and can't make it to my office, let me know and we can arrange an alternate meeting time or place. I enjoy getting out of the office and seeing the great state of South Carolina. If you are out of state and its physically impossible to meet in person, we can discuss matters over the phone, Skype or other means.
Going to court can be scary. Lawyers are taught there are so many unknowns that there are no such things as guarantees. However, with a lawyer by your side, as with anything else in life, it can be a better experience. Just because someone says you have done something wrong does not mean that you have. Fight back, hire an attorney who will fight for you, who will fight for your rights. Hire an attorney who will keep this community great.
