The laws regarding underage drinking in California are severe. If you are under 21 and have any measurable amount of alcohol in your system while driving, you will lose your license for one year. And even if you have not been drinking but have alcohol in your car, you can be charged with minor in possession and also lose your driver's license.

Effects of a DUI Attorney

In all DUI cases, whether or not our client is underage, we challenge the traffic stop. We evaluate the blood alcohol content test results because the charges and penalties increase with the amount of measurable alcohol, which means it is important to ensure that the readings are accurate. If we cannot get the charges against you dismissed, we seek reduced charges, such as reckless driving or a simple moving violation. If your car has been sent for impound by the police, we will help you try to get it back.

We schedule and attend the DMV hearing on your behalf to challenge your license suspension after seizure by the arresting officer. We help you apply for a critical needs license that restricts when and where you can drive—usually to school or your job.
