Drunk Driving Under Age 21
Drunk Driving Attorneys
A minor who is pulled over for drunk driving faces additional penalties for underage drinking. Also, a minor is considered "drunk driving" for blowing a .02 or above. Even after only a single drink, you could find yourself in court with a restricted license, and leaving with a damaging criminal record. If you have been pulled over for drunk driving and you are under 21, it is critical that you consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights.
If you are pulled over or arrested for drunk driving you should remain polite and cooperative but DO NOT make any confessions or admissions to anyone. It is vital that you seek an experienced criminal defense attorney before making any statements to the police or other law enforcement officials.
