Aggressive & Effective Criminal Defense Attorney Representing Upstate Clients

If you are facing criminal charges, the freedoms and privileges you enjoy every day may be on the line.

Aggravated Assault

Assault is considered aggravated when there is the added severity of using a weapon or threatening great bodily harm or death during the course of the assault. Such a charge could wreak havoc on your life and prevent you from many career opportunities or from ever owning a firearm. The attorneys at our firm possess over 45 years of combined experience and will do everything in our power to protect your rights and freedom throughout this process.

Drug Possession

The state of South Carolina does not look kindly upon people caught with drugs in their possession. Even small amounts can result in a felony drug charge, so it is crucial that you secure high-quality criminal defense representation from a seasoned attorney as soon as you can. We will look for any legal loopholes or mistakes made by law enforcement officials and ensure that your rights are respected in court.

Clement has decades of criminal defense experience and has successfully protected countless clients from terrible legal outcomes.

Robbery & Grand Theft

Robbery and grand theft don’t always go hand in hand, but in many cases they do. Theft of items valued over $2,000 is considered grand theft while robbery is taking something worth more than $2,000 against the will of the owner with the intent of depriving them of it forever. The fine lines between these crimes can cross and bleed into one another but no matter what your charge is, we will provide you with the best defense we can.


It’s considered shoplifting or petty theft if you’re caught stealing items totaling $2,000 or less. Perhaps you took something by accident or intended to return it later, or were unaware it wasn’t yours to take. Maybe you’re struggling financially and felt this was your only avenue. Whatever the reason, we’re here to help and will offer you unconditional support throughout your case.


Entering anyone’s property without their express permission is considered trespassing and a criminal act in South Carolina. Whether you intended to trespass or were unaware you weren’t supposed to be there unfortunately doesn’t make much of a difference in the eyes of the law. We will represent you to ensure you receive a fair trial and are afforded the best chance of seeing charges reduced or dismissed.
