We have all heard phrases such as "boys will be boys" and "youthful indiscretions". Unfortunately, incidents that take place during a person's youth can have a tremendous impact on the rest of his or her life if not handled properly. If your child has been arrested for an underage DUI, it is in your best interest to speak to a defense attorney as soon as possible.
For 30 years, I have been handling underage DUI claims in Bellevue and surrounding areas of Washington's Puget Sound region. I was born and raised here and have a unique understanding of the local jury pool that could make all the difference in protecting your child's reputation and future.
Suspended Driver's License
In almost all underage DUI cases, there will be a 90-day suspension of the minor's driver's license. The key is to make sure that the child is not tried as an adult or exposed to the punishments of an adult DUI, such as the fines and requirement to use an ignition interlock device to have driving rights restored.
My experience in these matters is a tremendous asset. The prosecution knows, based on my track record, that I have the experience and skills to take these cases to trial and beat them if the evidence is weak or law enforcement has overreached. I am skilled at achieving pretrial disposition in these cases in order to minimize the consequences for underage drivers.
