Criminal Defense


The flashing lights reflecting in your rearview mirror are only the beginning of your legal problems if you are charged with drunk driving. Immediate action must be taken to secure legal representation. At Barth, Ballenger & Lewis, L.L.P., we protect the rights of our clients and fight for the best outcome on their behalf.

Our trial attorneys have litigated criminal defense cases in the state and federal courts located in South Carolina. That level of experience coupled with an aggressive approach is necessary when the consequences of a DUI can change your life.

Proactive Representation and an Aggressive DUI Defense

At Barth, Ballenger & Lewis, L.L.P., we start by discussing the facts of your case at your initial consultation. Because your DUI criminal charge also involves a separate administrative process involving reinstatement of your license, we move you through both proceedings as efficiently as we can.

While we establish your defense and review all breath and sobriety test data, we also appear at hearings dealing with possible driver's license suspension. Once we have resolved the administrative process, we pursue the best outcome in criminal court. While many attorneys are quick to plea bargain, we will not rule out a trial if that can provide the best outcome for you.

In addition to criminal and administrative penalties, you also face court-imposed fines and increased insurance rates. Taking a proactive step in retaining a Florence and Greater Pee Dee area DUI lawyer can help to minimize the consequences you face if convicted of drunk driving.
