Do You Have Prior DUI Convictions?

Due to South Carolina’s ten-year lookback period, having a prior conviction during the previous decade could lead to harsher penalties. This means that any DUI convictions you have had within the last ten years can count against you and impact a new conviction.

For example, if you had a First Offense DUI within the previous ten years, a new conviction will be a Second Offence DUI. If you had a Second Offense DUI in the previous ten years, an additional conviction will be a Third Offense DUI. As the number of the offense increases, the more severe the penalties will be for a conviction. Protect your rights and your future by letting Lori S. Murray fight for you.


Yes, a DUI conviction shows up on a background check and can follow you for the rest of your life. That’s why it’s crucial to hire a reputable, experienced DUI lawyer in South Carolina who can help you navigate the legal process successfully.

Both a DUI and DUAC have an administrative side, involving the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), and a criminal side that involves the court. On the administrative side, a conviction comes with an automatic suspension of your driver's license as well as blowing over a .16. The suspension is dependent on the details of your conviction, including your blood alcohol content at the time of the arrest, willingness or refusal to take a Breathalyzer test, and prior convictions or license suspensions.

You can fight a driver’s license suspension with the help of a seasoned DUI lawyer like Lori Murray, but you have to act quickly – you have 30 days to request an administrative hearing for your refusal to take the breathalyzer test. You will need to have the representation of your attorney to successfully challenge the suspension at an Administrative Hearing. Your attorney can also help you qualify for a Temporary Alcohol Restricted License to use while you wait for the hearing to take place.

The sooner you contact the Law Offices of Lori S. Murray, the better we can fight against your DUI conviction and license suspension. Every moment counts when your future and freedoms are on the line. Contacting us as soon as possible can mean the difference between a disappointing conviction and the outcome you want.

Legal can be so confusing, Lori and her staff always went up and beyond for me. I'm glad I had Lori and her staff on my team. With a long process of over a year and a half working with her... Yes a year and a half, when you have to work with someone for so long on a situation which is so complicated and confusing you really want someone great on your side. I could go on and on on how great it was to work with Lori and her staff. But we all know you have bigger fish to fry so just give her a call. I HIGHLY recommend her!
