Most children attend parties at some time during high school or college. At these parties, it is not unusual for alcohol to be present even though the teens involved are underage. Most parents remember their own experiences with parties, but that should not stop them from taking a child's legal problems seriously and hiring a lawyer.

Underage DUI Attorney in Salt Lake City
At my Salt Lake City law office, I often remind parents and teens that Utah places serious consequences on underage drinking. Being found guilty can impact your life for years. In fact, Utah underage drinking laws have recently changed. If found guilty, teens can lose their driver's licenses for five years or until they are 18 years old, whichever is greater. Teens also face home confinement with an ankle monitor as well as a separate alcohol monitors if found guilty.

I urge parents and minors to take charges seriously. This is true of any of a range of alcohol-related charges:
- Minor in possession of alcohol
- Distribution of alcohol to minors
- Underage DUI
- Possession of a fake or altered ID
Parents often try to handle matters of juvenile law without a lawyer's help. All too often, they encourage their children to take responsibility for their actions and enter a guilty plea, not realizing that this could mean loss of the child's driving privileges for years. The matter is serious. Before taking action, get an attorney's advice.
As a Salt Lake City underage DUI lawyer with more than 10 years of experience, I know which legal arguments are generally effective in Utah Courts. Depending on the facts of your case, I make effective legal arguments that help protect your interests.
