Providing Counsel To Underage Drivers Accused Of Drunk Driving

If you are under the legal drinking age, the law has almost no tolerance for drunk driving. If your blood alcohol content (BAC) is found to be more than .02 percent, you could be charged with drunk driving. Despite the severity of the law, it is possible to defend a young person against charges of underage drinking. It requires an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer who is committed to helping young clients and protecting their rights.

Underage DUI Defense Strategies

Attorney James L. Finegan defends clients charged with underage drinking. No case is routine to him, especially those cases where a young person's future hangs in the balance. He will defend you in court and represent you at DMV license hearings.

He will explore defense strategies such as:

  • Determining whether the traffic stop was legal
  • Ensuring that the Intoxilyzer machine was calibrated correctly
  • Identifying explanations for an elevated BAC such as illness, medication or food

Additionally, he will propose alternate penalties that can reduce your chances of having a criminal record. This is especially important to young people who are just starting out. A criminal record could affect their chances of being admitted to the college of their choice, reduce their ability to obtain financial aid or prevent them from entering certain professions.
