Camden, South Carolina Drug Charges Legal Counsel

You Are Facing a Drug Charge in Kershaw County. Now What?

Whether you have been charged with marijuana possession or trafficking cocaine, experience counts when it comes to choosing an attorney who has the drive and the in-depth knowledge to provide you with a top defense. As the state of South Carolina has passed tougher laws regarding drug possession, distribution, trafficking and manufacturing, the odds are stacked against you without a skilled advocate on your side.

Protect Your Rights — Call Our Lawyers at 803-572-4054

Located in Camden, and only 35 miles from the Columbia campus of the University of South Carolina, the law firm of Speedy, Tanner, Atkinson & Cook has experience with: marijuana possession defense, criminal defense against charges of illegal sales of prescription drugs or cocaine, and legal guidance in matters regarding the manufacturing of methamphetamines (meth labs). What's more, our attorneys have experience defending clients in both state and federal courts. Two of our attorneys are former prosecutors and have handled thousands of cases in both Richland and Kershaw counties. We know the defense strategies that work.

Staying Out of Jail

The most common concern clients who are facing drug charges will ask is, "how can I stay out of jail?" To a great degree, it depends on the charge, whether it is a first offense, and whether it is in conjunction with another criminal offense (DUI, for instance). While dismissal of the charge is the ultimate goal, it is not always possible. In state charges, first offenses for simple possession, particularly of marijuana, seldom require jail time, but there is a mandatory license suspension unless we can get a conditional discharge. Pretrial intervention and drug court are other ways to help you keep your freedom. We are familiar with the procedures, and have had great success in using all tools available under the law to help our clients.
