Representation You Can Trust. Understanding You Deserve.

Facing criminal charges is a stressful and frightening experience for you and your family. When your reputation, career and freedom are at stake, it’s critical to retain a local, skilled criminal defense attorney in Summerville, SC immediately -- especially one with experience as a former Dorchester County prosecutor.  In other states, a prosecutor is known as a "District Attorney" or "DA."  South Carolina's terminology for prosecutor or District Attorney is "Solicitor."

I handled over 1000 criminal indictments/warrants in General Sessions Court and hundreds of Criminal Domestic Violence cases in the Magistrate and Municipal Courts of Dorchester County. In these courts combined, I have tried over 20 jury trials.

Have You Been Wrongfully Accused or Arrested?

Just because you've been arrested does not necessarily mean you are guilty of a crime or that you will be convicted of a crime. The sooner you hire a defense attorney, the sooner you can learn how the system works, what will happen next, what evidence the State has against you, what your defenses are, and how your rights will be protected.

What Sets Me Apart?

As a former State prosecutor, I have the unique ability to assess a case from both the prosecution and the defense side. The burden of proof in a criminal trial is on the State/Prosecution to prove that someone is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. You do not have to prove that you are innocent. That is why it is important to have an attorney who can evaluate your case from both a prosecution and defense point of view.  My experience gives me the opportunity to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the prosecution's case.

Having handled hundreds of cases as a prosecutor, I have gained insight to the prosecution's policies, procedures, strategies and processes. These key concepts could be beneficial in your case.  As a criminal defense attorney I have defended both adults and/or juveniles who faced charges of DUI, Criminal Domestic Violence, Criminal Domestic Violence of a High and Aggravated Nature, Assault and Battery, state and federal drug charges, Counterfeiting Money, Bank Fraud, Obtaining Signatures by False Pretenses, Burglaries, Grand Larcenies, Manufacturing Marijuana, and other criminal charges.

I am committed to providing you with the personalized, hands-on advice and guidance you need for your case.

“Help when you need.”

Susan Williams can be counted on to help you when you need it the most. The justice system can be very stressful if you are the target of an investigation. Though you may be innocent until proven guilty, the system treats you otherwise.

Susan was very understanding and explained everything and made me feel as if I were her only client. I was always kept informed as my case developed and within a short time she had my case dropped. Without hesitation I would hire Susan again because of Ms. Williams professionalism, perseverance, and analytic skills (she's also tough).

Ms. Williams has been an excellent attorney and genuinely knows the law inside and out. I have sincerely appreciated her representation.

“Great Work.”

Susan was awesome.She took care of everything from start to finish, and got me a dismissal for my ticket. I paid the attorney fee online with a credit card which was really convenient. Susan took care of the rest, only needing some basic information from me. I didn't even need to appear in court. I would definitely recommend Susan to anyone.
