    Believe it or not, crossing state borders is often like crossing into a foreign country from a legal standpoint- the laws on some things are totally different. SC has no prayer for judgment. If you're up for trial next week, the best thing to do is see if you can find a lawyer in Rock Hill to help you right now.

    Yes. This is a serious accusation that could get you prison time if you're convicted. You can't risk the consequences of just hoping the police will realize they made a mistake. The other person's word can get you convicted if the jury believes them- and they already got the police to believe them. .You need a trained professional on your side who can present your defense convincingly to protect your innocence.

    Here's the whole truth in a nutshell: it depends, and don't count on it. Unsatisfactory I know, but continuances are given AND DENIED for a variety of reasons. There's no maximum or minimum. The best thing to do is get a lawyer to handle it, so you'll be prepared for trial and it won't matter whether the case is continued.

    You might delay a DUI conviction license suspension for 60 days if you appeal it and get a certificate from the DMV allowing you to drive. But it's only for 60 days. Since you appealed the DUI conviction, have your lawyer look into it. If you don't have one, you should get one who's experienced in DUI/DUS defense. DUIs are very complex to appeal. DUS laws are complex, too. And your case involves both. You should look into appealing the DUS conviction or asking for a new trial, if you have time-...

    This is a serious charge. He needs a lawyer. A lawyer can file a motion to get all the evidence in the case- whether it helps or hurts his client. Then the case can be evaluated for the best defenses possible. It may be there's no evidence against your friend, but something convinced a magistrate to sign an arrest warrant on him. He needs a lawyer experienced in these cases to help him get to the bottom of it and figure out the best thing to protect him legally.

    There is no provider lien law in SC. The lien need not be filed. It is usually based on a form you signed to get treated- part of the mound of paperwork you probably signed. it's usually buried in a document called something like "Consent to Treat". The lien is created by an agreement to the effect you authorize the hospital to be repaid from any source, including any insurance, settlement, etc. To be valid, a lien must be agreed to by you, usually evidenced by your signature. You should figure...

    The most important thing is to make sure each DMV cleans up your driving record. Find out what the SC DMV will need by going to the local office . You're doing the right thing getting certified court documents.
