Ralph Wilson Law represents clients who have been accused of drug charges throughout South Carolina, including Conway, Myrtle Beach and Grand Strand. We take a detailed and careful approach to each case to ensure a favorable outcome for our clients.
Our attorney will conduct a thorough and detailed investigation of the case to determine the best course of action.
Our first goal is to determine whether or not there is a motion to suppress. For example, if the arresting officer violates the client’s rights, any evidence that is uncovered as a result of that violation will be suppressed and cannot be used as evidence at trial. Before evidence can be suppressed, a motion must be filed with the judge. A motion to suppress may also be filed if:
- A warrant is defective.
- There was no probable cause to issue the warrant (e.g. the officer mislead the judge in order to obtain the warrant).
- Police reports are exaggerated or contain false information.
- Officers ignore search and seizure laws.
Once the motion to suppress is granted, charges are often dismissed as the government has very little evidence to prove their case.
Even if a motion to suppress cannot be filed, we will analyze the case closely to consider the chance of acquittal once the case goes to trial. Our attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation of the case and build a favorable defense. If the client wishes not to try the case and no motion to suppress can be raised, we will do our utmost to ensure that our client receives a favorable plea bargain.
If you have been convicted of a drug-related crime, there is still hope. Ralph Wilson Law has extensive experience with drug appeals and federal appeals. We can help you fight the charges against you. Convictions involving the distribution, possession and manufacturing of illicit drugs often come with extensive prison terms and hefty fines. Don’t give up your right to appeal. Let us help you regain your freedom.
Our attorney will reexamine every detail of the original investigation as well as the trial to determine if any evidence was gained through illegal tactics or a search that violated your rights. Witness testimony will also be reexamined, and any unreliable information will be scrutinized.
It is not uncommon for officers and prosecutors to be overly aggressive with drug cases. Because of their aggressive approach, they make costly mistakes that violate your rights. Our attorney will work tirelessly to pinpoint every mistake made in your investigation and ensure that those who violated your rights are held accountable for their mistakes. If officers and/or prosecutors violated your rights during your trial or the initial investigation, your verdict may be overturned or your sentence may be reduced.
