Juvenile DUI

Delaware & Chester County Juvenile DUI Defense Lawyer

A DUI Charge May Affect Your Child Forever

A juvenile DUI charge may not seem like that big a deal. However, it can affect your child’s ability to get a job, go to school or get into the college of his or her choice and may limit the amount of financial aid he or she qualifies for.

In Pennsylvania, anyone under the age of 21 who is caught with a blood alcohol content of .02 or higher will be arrested for juvenile DUI. There is a zero-tolerance law in our state for underage drinking. If your child or loved one is caught, there are very severe legal and administrative penalties, including jail time, fines and license suspension. Your child needs an experienced DUI defense attorney by his or her side.

At Cherry DUI Law, we understand the differences in defending a juvenile versus defending an adult. While the impact for either can have a lifelong effect on the individual, the way the case is handled and the laws that apply change when the case involves a person under the age of 18. Our lawyers have decades of experience in handling juvenile DUI charges. We fight for your child’s rights.

Underage DUI Charge Defense Lawyers for Media

We sit down with you and your child to discuss what happened and review the evidence. Our goal is to obtain the best outcome possible for your child, preferably without a conviction, and to get you and your child back to your normal lives as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Even if we are unable to get your child’s case dismissed, it is possible that he or she may qualify for the accelerated rehabilitative disposition (ARD). If your child receives an ARD and successfully completes the supervision period, the charges will be dropped after six months and there will be no conviction on your child’s record going forward.
