Criminal Defense

Criminal charges are a serious matter. You must make sure that you or a loved one’s legal rights are protected. Representation by an attorney who is experienced in the criminal justice system is essential to a successful outcome.

Criminal Defendants have rights. Under the United States and South Carolina law, a criminal defendant has the right to counsel, the right to a speedy and public trial and the right against self-incrimination. If you have already been arrested, you have the right to have an attorney present when being questioned by investigators. Having a qualified attorney present, who can advise you, while making statements or important decisions can affect the future outcome of your case.

Before Charges are filed:

Having an experienced attorney involved in the early stages of an investigation can change the direction of the case. Attorneys at the McGee Law Firm have extensive experience assisting clients on matters involving providing testimony before state grand juries or answering questions from state or local investigators. It is possible, at times, to detour prosecutors from filing charges at all. If warrants are going to be filed, our attorneys will take the lead and guide your family through this process. 

If you or a loved one is arrested:

Call McGee Law Firm immediately. An attorney will request a bond hearing and discuss the posting of bond to secure your or your loved one’s release from jail. Your attorney will then fully describe for you the criminal process including discovery of evidence, pleas, trial and sentencing issues.
