Types of Criminal Cases We Handle in

Columbia, SC

There are various kinds of criminal offenses, all of which may incur a misdemeanor or felony charge. Depending on the type and severity of your alleged crime, your consequences may include hefty fines and lengthy jail time, along with a tainted criminal record.

Domestic Violence

Our lawyer knows from experience that domestic violence accusations are serious and may lead to life-changing outcomes. As such, we will handle your case with intensity and vigor to better protect you.

Drug Crimes

Drug crimes involve the possession, possession with intent to distribute, trafficking and manufacturing of illegal controlled substances as well as prescription drugs. Common illegal controlled substances include marijuana, cocaine, crack, methamphetamine, MDMA and ecstasy. As a former police officer, our drug crimes lawyer has seen countless lives be ruined by these convictions, and strives to build personalized defense strategies that pursue justice for every client.

Expungement Law

If you have a prior conviction or multiple prior convictions on your record, you can apply to get your arrests, charges or convictions expunged. This means that no one besides law enforcement (under limited circumstances) can view your criminal history. Your criminal history is essentially removed from your record so that you can have a fresh start.

Juvenile Crimes

Juvenile crimes are offenses committed by a person less than 17 years of age. Juveniles are still capable of committing regular crimes but may face different consequences and undergo the juvenile justice system instead. Juvenile crimes are unique to regular crimes because they involve acts that are prohibited due to age.

Property Crimes

If you’ve been charged with a property crime, rest assured, you are not alone in this fight. Our property crimes attorney obtains the high-caliber legal competence you need to work to resolve your accusation. Further, we can provide the guidance you need to better understand your Constitutional rights in and out of the courtroom, so you can feel confident that we are exhausting every strategy required to safeguard such rights and liberties. Property crimes involve offenses such as burglary, robbery, trespassing and arson.

Public Disorderly Conduct

Maybe you had a little too much to drink, have a dominant personality or were caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Whatever your situation may be, law enforcement will attempt to penalize you for public disorderly conduct. Attorney Laubshire was a former police deputy sheriff and deeply understands how this charge can hurt your future: You don’t deserve one “mishap” to determine the course of your freedom. We have your back and will stand by you from beginning to end.

Sex Crimes

Sex crimes accusations are very serious and should be treated as such. A conviction could damage your livelihood beyond repair: Society has a very negative stereotype towards sex offenders, and you could have trouble getting a job, securing housing, and/or enjoying freedom. That’s why you need Attorney Laubshire’s respected, aggressive representation to defend your rights and liberties.

Theft Crimes

Regardless of whether you allegedly stole $100 or $2,000 worth of goods, the law does not mess around when it comes to prosecuting those charged with theft crimes. Theft crimes are defined as taking possession of, carrying away, transferring, or causing to be carried away the property of another with the intent to steal the property. Depending on the value of the property, you may face a misdemeanor or felony charge.

Underage Possession of Alcohol

South Carolina prohibits a person under the age of 21 to purchase, attempt to purchase, or knowingly possess beer, ale porter, wine or a similar malt or fermented beverage. Attorney Laubshire was a former deputy sheriff and knows how easy it is for law enforcement to identify where young people commit this crime. With that being said, he also knows what it takes to overcome a charge of this nature.

Violent Crimes

Violent crimes include various offenses that threaten or cause serious bodily injury or death to a person. The law does not treat accused offenders of this crime lightly. Since violent crimes interfere with public safety and protection, prosecutors will find every reason to put you behind bars. Luckily, Mr. Laubshire was a former prosecutor and thus can prepare a strategic defense in anticipation of your prosecutor’s possible attacks.

White Collar Crimes

White collar crimes typically include non-violent offenses committed in attempts to acquire financial gain. The FBI reports that these crimes cost the US $300 billion or more per year, and as a result, the law makes drastic attempts to crack down on white collar criminals. We strongly advise that you retain Attorney Laubshire to dedicate his talents and well-versed experience in the law to defend you.
