South Carolina lawyer John Landreth is available for consultation to answer your legal questions.
I enjoy helping people in both Carolinas with cases in civil court and criminal court. I’m a courtroom lawyer with experience handling cases in Rock Hill SC and Charlotte NC – John Landreth, York County SC Lawyer
While there are many similarities in culture and geography, there are differences between the laws in South Carolina and North Carolina. Our law firm clients cross back-and-forth over the NC-SC border on a daily basis, like thousands of other motorists, not fully understanding the distinctions in the law.
There are important differences, including how legal liability is determined in accident cases and semi truck wrecks. North Carolina is one of the few states in the country that allows the defense of contributory negligence. South Carolina draws distinctions between DUI Driving Under the Influence and Driving With Unlawful Alcohol Concentration DUAC.
It’s a mistake to assume the laws are the same for felony vs. misdemeanor charges in South Carolina and North Carolina. Understanding the differences in the criminal laws and civil laws, and how they actually affect our clients in the respective states is important.
We face criminal defense legal issues like:
- How will a South Carolina Traffic Ticket affect your North Carolina Drivers License?
- Will a DWI revocation in North Carolina suspend my South Carolina License?
- If I’m placed on probation in Charlotte, North Carolina can I live in Rock Hill SC?
- Do insurance points transfer across the NC-SC state line?
- Does North Carolina DMV recognize South Carolina Motor Vehicle violations?
We also provide legal representation for legal issues including:
- If I live in Charlotte NC and was hurt in an accident in Rock Hill SC, where to I file my claim?
- What happens in a South Carolina truck accident if the CDL driver is licensed in North Carolina?
- Can my South Carolina car accident case be heard where I live in North Carolina?
- What is contributory negligence in North Carolina?
- Is there comparative negligence in South Carolina accident injury claims?
Having offices in both states is great. I get the option, or get the chance to travel back and forth to use different states laws.
By being licensed in both states, I get to help clients who maybe lives in Charlotte and Rock Hill, or so close, we get a lot of cross-the-border clients where this person may live in Charlotte, work in Rock Hill; or live in Rock Hill and work in Charlotte, and they have to be charged just short of crossing over.
I enjoy traveling to all the different regions in our state. I enjoy traveling to different counties and different courthouses in order to help people. I think it’s a benefit for me with our clients that I can explain the laws of each state and exactly what’s going to happen. If you’re looking for Lawyers in Rock Hill SC, we’re here to help!
