Johnston has made a special focus to concentrate and hone his skills on a few areas of law, so as to stay current, strong, up to speed on all developments, and as proficient and capable as an attorney can be; and has opted to not just take any case, and practice in dozens or areas. This has enabled him to stay on top in his special chosen fields.

WINNING & THE BEST POSSIBLE RESULTS
Attorney Johnston has an impressive record in the areas Criminal Defense, which includes DUI (Driving Under the Influence) & Traffic Violations, along with Personal Injury, Wrongful Death-Fatalities. His approach to winning and achieving the best possible results on any and all of his cases, is based on one simple, yet highly demanding approach; and that is Preparation. The best way of obtaining the desired results regardless of the type of case, is to be fully prepared for trial. The opposing side, whether it’s the prosecution or an insurance company knows that, and the last thing they want to do, is to go to trial with an attorney who is prepared, and posed to win.

DUI – DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE
In February of 2009, South Carolina completely rewrote the DUI law. If you are now convicted of a DUI, you will be facing potential jail, license suspension, SR-22 high risk insurance, high fine plus court costs and assessments. That conviction will remain on your driving record for ten years and on your criminal record for the rest of your life. A drunk driving conviction cannot be expunged (record destroyed). However, there might be good news. First off, a lot of DUI charges are reduced in South Carolina. Some are dismissed. Very few of these ever go to trial. Its worth a phone call to be sure. DUI cases are serious and harsh if convicted.

TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS
Some Traffic Violations are as harmful to a person as a full-fledged crime. And all violations, if convicted, can cost time, money, affect insurance, employment, and a person’s driving record. Certain violations are called Quazi-Criminal, since the have potential jail as part of the sentence. For instance, Driving Under the Influence, Driving Under Suspension; and other that people don’t usually associate with crimes, such as a six point speeding ticket, which carries up to 30 days in jail. Therefore, most Criminal Defense Attorneys also practice Traffic Violation law.

PERSONAL INJURY
