Criminal Defense Lawyer Fighting For You When You Face Sexual Conduct Charges
South Carolina’s sex crime laws are rather complex and the penalties extremely severe. Depending upon your charges, there are mandatory minimum sentences and sex offender registration. When the penalties are this serious, do not face the legal system alone or with a lawyer who lacks the necessary skill, knowledge and experience.
At the Taylor Law Firm, LLC, in West Columbia, our criminal law attorneys are skillful and highly-regarded. Our principal criminal defense attorney, Heath Taylor, was formerly president of the South Carolina Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. With more than 10 years of experience, he understands the charges against you. Rest assured, he will always take the time to explain the law, outline your options and address your concerns.
