Don’t Let Underage Drinking Ruin Your Future
David B. Smith, Attorney at Law, based in Greensboro, has extensive experience and knowledge working with parents of college students and juveniles charged with underage drinking. He understands and acknowledges the impact it can have on their future and the seriousness of the possible legal repercussions they can face.
North Carolina is a zero-tolerance state for underage drinking offenses, with punishments far harsher than other states. Many young adults are not aware of the consequences of an underage drinking conviction, but our lead attorney is and will provide a thorough explanation as to how this policy pertains to your case and what he can do for you and your family.
Underage Drinking Offenses And Your Defense
Some of the drinking offenses that fall into this category include:
- Use of a fake ID
- Underage DWI/DUI
- Public intoxication
- Disorderly conduct
- Minor in possession of alcohol
Consequences associated with an underage drinking conviction can vary dramatically. If you are in school, your college or university may choose to suspend or expel you. Without the representation of an experienced attorney, it’s possible you could face jail time, have your driver’s license suspended, or jeopardize your access to scholarships or federal loans.
When it comes to representing you and defending your case, our firm is diligent with helping you understand the charges that have been filed against you or your child, what you can expect and how the legal system works with handling these types of offenses. Our attorney can ask the court to consider mitigating factors and sentencing alternatives such as community service, especially if this is your first offense.
