About Me

Chad focuses on Driving Under the Influence and other related traffic offenses.  At least 50% of his practice is devoted to criminal defense, a vast majority of which is Driving Under the Influence cases.  Given his DUI caseload, Chad has taken steps to make him more knowledgeable, so he can better assist his clients, including SFST certification, Datamaster DMT training and Drug Recognition Expert training.  Chad has appeared as a presenter at a Criminal Law Continuing Legal Education seminar and a recent magistrate court judge training seminar.


Chad is a Partner/Shareholder at Pope & Hudgens, P.A. in Newberry, South Carolina.  He has worked there continuously since completing a clerkship with a South Carolina Circuit Court Judge  in 2000.
