The law firm of McCutchen Vaught Geddie & Hucks, P.A., Law Firm was recognized as a Founding Member of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys in 2014. Attorney Gene Vaught was voted as a Finalist by the Horry News Readers Choice Awards as Best Criminal Attorney in both 2014 and 2015.
Most people do not think they are impaired until they are pulled over and arrested for driving under the influence. We have represented people of all walks of life — college kids, tourists, soccer moms, lawyers, teachers, preachers — facing serious consequences of a DUI arrest.
The firm provides effective DUI defense to clients of the Grand Strand and throughout Horry County and Georgetown County. Contact us for a free, confidential consultation if you are accused of drunk driving.
We have represented vacationers arrested for DUI after a day on the golf course or a night on the town, as well as college students from out of state. A DUI conviction in South Carolina will follow you to your home state, so do not be tempted to simply plead guilty. Our local attorneys can advise you accordingly.
The penalties for driving under the influence are fairly tough and getting tougher. Even on a first offense, the consequences can include license suspension for six months, thousands of dollars in fines and surcharges, higher insurance rates and possibly an ignition interlock on your car at your expense.
A repeat DUI carries greater penalties, including possible jail time and loss of driving privileges of a year or more. Felony charges and prison may apply for DUI with a child in the car or a drunk driving accident.
We have successfully defended clients on all drunk driving offenses and related charges:
Our criminal defense lawyers will examine the facts of your case for opportunities to fight the charges, such as the grounds for the traffic stop or the validity of field sobriety tests or Breathalyzer results. We will go to trial when there are holes in the prosecution's case, and we explore negotiations to avoid jail or avoid a DUI on your record. We can also help clients qualify for restricted driving privileges to drive to work or school.
With your license, your freedom or your future at stake, you need solid advice and representation. For a free consultation with Myrtle Beach DUI attorneys Gene Vaught and Mac McCutchen, call us at 843-449-3411 or 843-497-9123 or contact us online.
