Who We Are

We are Ready to Protect Your Rights and Future

Choosing the right attorney to handle your criminal defense case can be the difference between freedom and the loss of rights. To begin, it is important to select a lawyer who offers dedicated and loyal service from beginning to end.

At the Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC, our lawyers have the experience and drive to help ensure a satisfactory outcome in every case they handle. Our founding attorney, James R. Snell, Jr., offers service to those who have been accused of a crime they did not commit or found themselves in a circumstance they would not typically be facing.

If you or a loved one has been contacted by the police regarding a crime, retain the help of a Lexington criminal lawyer who knows how to provide exceptional defense. We can help you understand your rights and minimize the chance of conviction by developing a strong and accurate case. We serve many areas of South Carolina, including Lexington and Columbia.
