South Carolina’s DUI laws are among the strictest in the nation. If you have a BAC of 0.08 percent or higher, it will be inferred that you were driving under the influence. If you have a BAC that is at least 0.05 percent but less than 0.08 percent, your BAC level may be considered along with other evidence to infer that you are under the influence. If you are convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol, you could face suspension of your driver’s license, hefty fines and even jail time.

If you have been arrested for DUI in Marlboro County, Dillon County, or any other county in the Pee Dee, contact us today. Delton Powers aggressively defends those accused of DUI and other traffic offenses.



In it’s simplest form, “Personal Injury” is a legal term that means you have suffered a physical injury because of someone else. There are ways the law holds people and companies responsible for inflicting physical harm upon individuals, be it intentional or neglectful. Injury claims can be complex: facts may be disputed, a number of insurance companies, adjusters and other attorneys may be involved, as well as a large amount of paperwork. The Powers Law Firm has the experience to successfully represent your Personal Injury case.



From speeding tickets, to reckless driving and other traffic violations, Delton Powers can help reduce or sometimes eliminate the penalties associated with traffic tickets. Speeding tickets/traffic violations should not be taken lightly. They can affect your insurance premiums and your privilege to operate a motor vehicle. In most cases, your presence in court is not required.
