Drug Crimes

South Carolina law categorizes over 125 different drugs, including marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and a wide variety of prescription medications. In addition to a jail sentence, penalties can include large fines, seizure of your home, property, vehicles, and cash.

If it is your second drug offense in South Carolina, you may be subject to a penalty enhancement even if the drugs are totally different from your first offense. If your arrest involves a search and seizure on your person, in a car, in your home or elsewhere, the Fourth Amendment may have safeguards that could suppress evidence that was seized unlawfully.

Attorney Nick Thomas has defended clients for nearly every drug offense in South Carolina, including arrests for:

  • Drug Possession

Domestic Violence /

Just because you were arrested for Domestic Violence does not mean you are guilty. An angry spouse or loved one cannot make the police drop the charges because he or she “overreacted”. Your case will be turned over to a solicitor who specializes in DV prosecution. 

A DV conviction can restrict your ability to own or possess a firearm of any type, including rifles and shotguns for hunting purposes. Protect your freedom by retaining Attorney Nick Thomas to fight your battle in court.
