In the next two weeks, we will be reaching graduation season; this means more graduation parties and occasions where teenagers will be exposed to alcohol. Simply, the numbers do not lie. A 2011 National Survey on Drug Use and Health reported that 25% of youth aged 12 to 20 drink alcohol, and 16% binge drink. Furthermore, underage drinking is the leading cause of death among teens in the United States, as reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Despite the drinking law, underage drinking does occur. The Weingart Firm is here to ensure your child is not negatively affected for life from a bad decision. If your child is facing DUI charges, we would like to help protect their future by working out some compromises in court.
If your child is facing DUI charges, we will challenge the validity of the evidence leading to the charge; if the child is convicted, we will try to minimize penalties any way we can. We have over 30 years of experience defending persons charged with DUIs, including underage DUIs. Our lawyers will tirelessly scour over the evidence against the underage offender and look for potential weaknesses, procedural deficiencies, or problems with lab reports. Contact The Weingart Firm today to help protect your child’s future; this is especially important after graduation! Consultations are free and we can provide more information on how to protect your child’s rights. We help clients in the Tempe, Scottsdale, and Phoenix areas.
