Facing Underage Drinking Charges?
Defending Minors Charged with Underage Drinking in Philadelphia County
Experienced juvenile criminal defense to protect your child against license suspension or conviction for any underage drinking charge including DWI, DUI, and other alcohol related offenses.
I have extensive experience when it comes to defending juveniles in court. Building defense cases for minors is especially important because a child's mistake can become a hindrance for their entire adult life.
Being arrested for an underage drinking charge does not have to mean license suspension, a mark on the minor's records, time in a juvenile detention center or expensive fines. I defend any young person who is facing any underage drinking charges, including DWI and DUI offenses.
Underage Drinking Penalties
Convictions have serious consequences that may include fines, driver's license suspension, community service, and, in some cases, incarceration in a juvenile jail. Even if the courts are lenient, this offense can still appear on the minors record – which may limit the amount of financial aid the student will receive in college, or even prevent acceptance.
This is why I work so hard to not only reduce and eliminate harsh penalties, but to remove the offense for the defendant's record as well. I will work to prevent a mistake from ruining your child's future.
We Can Help
If you or your child has been arrested on an underaged drinking charge, you may feel overwhelmed. This is where I come in, I understand the negative impact these charges can have on the future of the offender and therefore the importance of getting it resolved. Through a strong defense strategy and alternative punishments like mandated drug or alcohol classes instead of marks on records or probation, you will be able to lead a normal life not affected by this mistake.
