My son was arrested for DUI while sitting in a truck

Customer Question
My son was arrested...

My son was arrested for DUI while sitting in a truck sleeping. He was not on the road but spent the night in jail - arrested by Port Royal, SC police. Do you have any suggestions for representation.

Lawyer's Assistant: Does your son have any upcoming court dates on the DUI charges?

I am sure he does but I do not have that information at this time. He was just released from jail and hope to see him within the hour. Can find all that out then.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has he talked to a SC lawyer about this yet?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

He does have priors which he deserved at the time. He completed a rehab program last year. Yes, he made an error last night but this time it seems a bit harsh and I would like to retain an attorney to handle this case.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
