Attorney for Drug Offenses

Don't go without an attorney for a Drug Offense. Many of the drug-related crimes are prosecuted in Circuit Court which means the fines and penalties that go along with them can be extensive.  A conviction for a drug offense could have long term implications with employment, ability to obtain student loans, or even rent an apartment.

How much time can I get for a drug offense in South Carolina?

Unfortunately in my years as a prosecutor, I saw many lives affected by drug offenses.  A drug addiction or a "friend" dumping something in your car shouldn't have lasting effects on you.   Drug offenses can have severe repercussions.  For example, South Carolina law provides that simple possession of cocaine carries up to 3 years in prison and up to a $5000 fine. Four grams or more of heroin can get you up to 25 years in prison and a $50,000 fine.  

Experienced drug defense attorney

A drug addiction shouldn't prohibit you from moving on with life. That's why you need an experienced criminal defense attorney for your drug offense to walk with you through the process to make sure that you are informed of all the consequences surrounding the charge. Many times drugs will be seized in violation of your Fourth Amendment protections.  Make sure you have an attorney with the knowledge to spot those issues.  That's where we can help.  If you’ve been charged with a drug offense in Goose Creek, Summerville, Charleston, Moncks Corner or the surrounding areas, call us so that we can assess your case to see what options you may have.

"Timely returned call"

Excellent call back time, Mr. Hilton phoned me back on Sunday after I had left a message for a return call late Saturday. Explained all options and possible out comes prior to court. Then in court he negotiated an outcome that I would never have been able to achieve with out his representation. Thank You, FW
