Focusing on Criminal Defense to Better Serve Our Clients

We only accept criminal defense cases.

We don’t “dabble” in criminal defense – it is what we do all day every day. By focusing exclusively on criminal defense cases in SC, we are constantly learning and improving our knowledge of SC criminal defense law, criminal investigations, and trial practice in SC’s criminal courts.

The Thompson Defense Firm has obtained dismissals, pre-trial diversion resulting in dismissals, or acquittals following trial in hundreds of criminal cases, and we have a record of proven results.

Although no attorney can ethically guarantee you results, if your case is not dismissed or settled favorably we will not hesitate to go to trial and fight for you. We have investigators and expert witnesses on call who will assist in investigating and preparing your case for trial.

How Much Does a Criminal Defense Lawyer in SC Cost?

Our fees are reasonable, but we are not the least expensive defense firm. Our fees reflect our experience and the work that goes into each case. In every criminal case, we charge a flat fee that is determined by:

  • The nature of your charges;
  • The circumstances surrounding your case;
  • The extent of investigation required;
  • An estimate of the hours that will be required to prepare the case for trial;
  • The likelihood that the case will go to trial, result in dismissal, or other resolution; and
  • We will let you know up front if we believe investigators or other expert witnesses will be necessary to assist with your case.
