South Carolina Felony DUI Defense

How do I know if I may be facing Felony DUI Charges?

A felony DUI charge results when a driver, driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or both, is involved in an accident Driving while drinkingwhile operating a vehicle and, as a result of that accident, causes “great bodily injury” or death to a person, other than himself.  The person harmed could be a passenger in the drivers car, a driver or passenger in another care, a pedestrian, or another driver.

What is “Great Bodily Injury?

The State of South Carolina defines “Great Bodily Injury” as bodily injury, which creates a substantial risk of death or which causes serious or permanent disfigurement or protracted loss or impairment of the function of any bodily member or organ.  Therefore, if anyone experiences any of the above mentioned as a result of an accident, and one or more of the drivers involved is under the influence of alcohol, or drugs, or both, at the time of the accident, that driver may be charged with Felony DUI.   Additionally, if any injured person dies from complications related to the accident (such as a coma) within three years of the DUI-related injury, the driver may be implicated in the death.

Consequences of Felony DUI

If the person charged with Felony DUI chooses to proceed to trail and is convicted by a jury, upon conviction by a jury of a felony DUI, the accused faces a minimum mandatory prison sentence and a fine.  Because of the potentially life-changing consequences of a Felony DUI, it is important that you seek experienced counsel who understands the South Carolina Felony DUI laws.  The attorneys at the Strom Law Firm, founded by former US Attorney for the district of South Carolina, Pete Strom, understand the Felony DUI laws.  Our attorneys will fight to protect your rights, your life, and ultimately, your future.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…
Professional Representation, Satisfying Legal Outcome!
My wife and I retained Bakari Sellers to represent our son in a case in Richland County. We found Mr. Sellers, his assistant Stephanie, and the rest of the staff at Strom, extremely courteous and professional. We really appreciated Mr. Sellers’ straightforward and honest approach. We believe this is a very competent law firm, and are satisfied with the legal outcome they achieved. We would highly recommend them!

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
