Defending Your Rights Before You Have Even Been Charged

The moment you believe that you are under suspicion for a crime, you need the defense of a proven attorney. I am William Yarborough, and with over 25 years in the legal field, I’ve dedicated my career to defending the rights of my clients throughout the Midlands and upstate South Carolina.

As a former Assistant U.S. Attorney, state prosecutor and public defender, I understand the complexities of the criminal justice system from every angle. Whether the state has initiated an investigation or has already arrested you, I am here to stand by your side. When you hire me early on, I jump into action to prevent the state from bringing charges against you, minimize the consequences and defend your rights.

The Importance Of A Criminal Defense Attorney During Investigations

The period of a pre-charge investigation is critical. It’s when law enforcement is building its case against you. Having an experienced criminal defense lawyer can make all the difference. The police will try to get you to speak with them to gather evidence, even if you are completely innocent.

I can guide you through interactions with the police, ensuring your rights, especially your right to silence, are protected. I know how to communicate with the police or prosecutors so that you do not inadvertently incriminate yourself. Early intervention can often mean the difference between prison time and freedom. I am committed to getting ahead of the charges to safeguard your future.

The Experience That Counts

When you’re at risk of serious charges, including federal crimes, having a lawyer with my background is a powerful asset in your corner. With my background as both a prosecutor and a public defender, I bring a unique perspective to your defense. I know what the state will look for, even in complex federal cases, and how to effectively manage its tactics. My approach is proactive; sometimes I can even collaborate with the District Attorney’s Office to get potential charges against you dropped or reduced.
