When facing criminal charges, whether it is a DUI, drug crime, domestic violence, or another offense, retaining the services of an experienced attorney is the best action you can take. Even if you have not been arrested or charged but are being investigated, you should have the protection and counsel of a professional. Early intervention can have big consequences, including cases being dropped and charges never being filed.
However, at any stage of a criminal matter, navigating the criminal justice system calls for professional help. The stakes can be high, including jail or prison time, hefty fines, long probations, and other court actions. Prosecutors aggressively pursue charges in seeking convictions. Putting an equally tenacious and skilled defender on your side is a must to level the playing field and give you the best chance of a favorable outcome.
If you are facing any type of criminal accusation in Irmo, you can turn to a criminal defense lawyer backed by experience that includes time spent both as a public defender and as a prosecutor. Because of this, Mr. Sharpe has gained valuable insight into how prosecutors operate. This advantage, along with his focus, passion, and broad understanding of the law, makes him the defender you will want.

While you may be aware of the immediate consequences of a criminal charge, you may not understand the long-term collateral damage to your life. A criminal conviction means a permanent criminal record that can be accessed by anyone in the future, including prospective employers, landlords, and educational institutions. Additionally, a criminal record may disqualify you from a professional license in a trade or career, such as for piloting, real estate, teaching, nursing, pharmacy, electrical, plumbing, accounting, and more.
