One drink can cause a lifetime of consequences. Underage drinking charges can result in suspension from school, heavy court costs and fines, community service, loss of driving privileges, increased auto insurance rates, and problems with job and school applications.

Handling Underage Drinking

At Minick Law, P.C., we will sit down with you, analyze your situation, and determine what is necessary to achieve the best possible outcome on your underage drinking citation. Many times having your case dismissed and expunged (i.e. permanently removed) from your criminal record is a possibility and there may be many legal vehicles for producing this same result.

You won’t just get a criminal defense attorney, you’ll get a criminal defense team. Our team of criminal defense attorneys includes a former District Attorney as well as an attorney who served 12 years as a police officer. Each of our underage drinking attorneys has handled hundreds of drinking related case and they will work together to make sure you get the best representation.

Our action plan for handling your underage drinking citation depends upon:

  • Your prior record
  • Your age
  • Whether you were charged with a larger group of people (ex. house party)
  • Your state of residence
  • Whether driving was involved

At Minick Law, P.C., we aim to make the consequences and remedies of an underage drinking charge clear to you.
