Underage Drinking and Driving

If you are under 21 and caught driving with any amount of alcohol in your system, you can be charged with driving after consuming alcohol. You will lose your license for a year and you could end up paying hundreds of dollars in fines. Also, you will gain four points on your license and you could see as much as a 400 percent increase in your insurance over the next three years.

We will work to have your charges dismissed or lowered. If dismissal is not possible, we will try to get you a driving privilege, also known as a restricted license. This license will allow you to drive to work or school while your license is suspended. We will explore all of your options so you can move forward with your life.

Underage DWI

If your blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08 or above, you can additionally be charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI). It is important you hire an experienced attorney to fight these charges so you can try to avoid jail time, increased fines and a drunk driving record.
