If you've been charged with driving under the influence, your best protection is a Charleston DUI attorney with experience.

Charleston DUI Attorney Edward L. Phipps, a former traffic officer, knows the ins and outs of DUI cases. With an in-depth understanding of DUI detection methods (e.g. DataMaster procedures), and how they can prove or disprove a case, our firm has the knowledge to fight for you.

How South Carolina Prosecutes and Charleston DUI Attorneys at the Phipps
Firm Defend DUI Cases

With years of experience in DUI enforcement, as well as defense and prosecution, Charleston DUI Attorneys at the Phipps Law Firm have devised five concepts that explain the process of DUI cases: 1) The "You", 2) The "Impaired Driving", 3) The "Field Sobriety Tasks (FST's)", 4) The "Blood Alcohol Content (BAC)", and 5) The "Defense Lawyer".

These key concepts help you learn, understand, and appreciate the challenging process of getting a successful outcome to a DUI case.

Our strategy for helping you fight your case is to identify, separate, and analyze with technical precision each aspect of your case. With this strategy we'll build a strong case to challenge the charges against you.

Most people don't realize that there is much more to any DUI case than the information an officer uses when deciding to make an arrest. Because there is pressure in the form of incentives, statistics and hype surrounding drunk driving, an officer may be very aggressive when deciding to charge a driver with a DUI.

If you have been charged with a DUI, you should hire a lawyer with the knowledge, experience and proven track record for successfully defending DUI's in the state. With Charleston DUI Attorney Edward L. Phipps, you'll work with an experienced attorney who will aggressively fight on your behalf. The Phipps Firm will give you the support of a professional team dedicated to proving your innocence.

The Phipps Firm is conveniently located in historic downtown Charleston, near Mount Pleasant. Call us for your free and confidential consultation today, at 843-300-4444.
