Columbia Student And Juvenile Crime Lawyer

photoSouth Carolina Criminal Defense Lawyer Defending You | William A. Hodge, Attorney at Law

If you are facing criminal charges, one of the your most important decisions involves choosing the right attorney. It is important to work with someone who will take the time to understand your situation, defend you aggressively and remain available to you throughout the entire legal process.

I am William A. Hodge, Columbia attorney with a focus on helping my clients get the best results possible in their criminal defense. I understand the challenges you are facing in the intimidating criminal justice system.

Personalized Attention

One of the things my clients appreciate about my representation is the personalized service I provide. Although I provide legal representation every bit as sophisticated as the service provided by much larger law firms, my one-attorney firm structure allows me to be there for my clients. When you call my firm, you get my cellphone. When you need legal answers, I will be there for you.

I personally defend my clients in criminal defense matters that involve:

  • Alcohol and drug-related offenses: I can defend you against drug- and alcohol-related crimes that include DUI, drug possession and trafficking.
  • College and high school students: I represent high school students and college aged young adults in juvenile and adult court charges.

As a former prosecutor, I have a wealth of trial experience, a thorough understanding of the criminal trial process and familiarity with the judges and prosecutors involved. The players in the South Carolina criminal justice system know me and they know my reputation for ethical, honest representation, which gives me credibility in negotiation and helps me defend my clients well.

Honest, Straightforward Representation

I don't understand how some attorneys will guarantee certain results to their clients without rhyme or reason. My only guarantee to my clients is this: I will do everything I can to help you in your case.

My clients appreciate the honest, straightforward counsel they receive from me. If you have a difficult case, I will tell you that. I don't think it helps my clients at all to give them false expectations in their cases. The truth is the only thing that will help you. No matter how difficult your case is, I will do everything I can to defend your rights and get you the best outcome possible.
