Traffic and Driving Offenses

Blackwelder Law takes your traffic citation cases very seriously because we are aware that these types of offenses can affect your license, insurance, and employment status.  Attorney Blackwelder has experience handling cases throughout the state of South Carolina.  While the firm handles all types of traffic cases, the following are those we encounter most often:

  • Speeding Citations
  • Lane Violations
  • Stop Sign and Stop Light Violations
  • Reckless Driving
  • Careless Operation (Considered Reckless Driving for Out-of-State Drivers)
  • DUI/DUAC

Drug Crimes

The consequences of drug convictions vary according to the individual defendant's prior record, type of drug(s) involved, and the amount of drugs present at the time of arrest.  Blackwelder Law makes it a priority to get to know our clients and to identify any issues with the search and seiure that led to your arrest.  The following drug-related charges are those we encounter most often:

  • Possession
  • Distribution (PWID)
  • Trafficking
  • DUI-Drugs

Violent Crimes

Blackwelder Law urges those charged with violent crime offenses to talk with an attorney as soon as possible.  Violent crimes have serious potential consequences, including lengthy prison sentences, high fines, and detrimental affects on your employment (sometimes even prior to conviction).  Prosecutors often overcharge and fight harder to convict on these cases because they feel pressure from alleged victims that are involved.  The following charges are those that we encounter most often:

  • Assault and Battery
  • Assault and Bettery High and Aggravated
  • Burglary
  • Armed Robbery
  • Kidnapping
  • Criminal Domestic Violence
  • Weapons Violations
  • Attempted Murder
  • Manslaughter
  • Murder

College Student Defense

Students and young adults sometimes make poor choices that can negatively affect their future.  Even pleading guilty to minor offense like underage drinking or shoplifting can result in a criminal record that will follow them for the rest of their lives.  The following charges are those that we encounter most often:

  • Minor in Possession
  • Simple Possession
  • Possession of a Fake ID
  • Public INtoxiation
  • Disorderly Conduct
  • Shoplifting
  • Noise Ordinances
