Thurmond Kirchner & Timbes Law Firm

Paul Thurmond stands out as an effective lawyer and a dedicated public servant. A committee of judges and bar leaders selected him to receive our highest alumni honor, the Compleat Lawyer Medallion, not only because of his success, but equally because of his outstanding reputation for character and professionalism. I recently had a problem with a severe termite infestation of my home and the company made a very inadequate settlement offer. After several months of arguing back and forth, I became very frustrated. My next door neighbor recommended Mr. Kirchner. I contacted him and first of all, he offered me excellent advice as to how we should proceed. Based on this I retained him and in a very short period of time, he was able to negotiate a much improved settlement. Working with him and his staff was a pleasure and I highly recommend him. I have referred several people with various pending charges to Paul Thurmond of TKT for legal representation, and the clients have been very appreciative of his professionalism and excellent results. Chris Romeo exceeded my expectations when handling an auto accident case for me. He kept me informed, fought and negotiated for justice, and provided an acceptable outcome. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a qualified attorney with high character and integrity.

Consequences of Refusing to Blow ▪ Charleston DUI Attorney

In South Carolina, if a person is arrested for driving under the influence, law enforcement can request that the subject provide a breath sample to measure blood alcohol content. Oftentimes, subjects refuse to provide a breath sample because they do not want to provide further evidence to the police, because they question the reliability of the machine, or for a number of other reasons. As a consequence of refusing to provide this breath sample, the subject’s driving privileges can be suspended for 6 months and the subject can be required to enroll in the Alcohol and Drug Safety Action Program before being issued a driver’s license. The driver can challenge these penalties by requesting an administrative hearing. Recently, one of our clients was facing a suspension for refusal to blow. The administrative hearing officer decided there would be no suspension because the arresting officer did not accurately advise the our client of the consequences of providing a breath sample or refusing to do so. In another case involving one of our clients, the South Carolina Court of Appeals determined that our client’s driving privileges could not be suspended because the police did not prove that the client had been properly advised of their rights to take the breath test or refuse it.
