Portland Underage DUI Defense Lawyer
Oregon has a zero-tolerance policy for drivers under the age of 21 who are caught driving drunk. Any amount of alcohol in the system can lead to a DUI/DUII. At Helzer & Cromar, we are experienced in representing clients of all ages in drunk driving cases. We will be strong advocates for your child.
To help protect your child’s rights and future, contact the underage DUI defense lawyers of Helzer & Cromar.
Underage DUI Penalties
Did your child receive a drinking and driving charge? He or she may face driver’s license suspension along with additional penalties. If your child’s blood alcohol content (BAC) was .08 or higher, he or she will be subject to the same penalties as someone who is over 21 and caught driving with a BAC over the legal limit.
If your child is under the age of 18 and charged with a DUI/DUII, his or her case will be handled in juvenile court. While your child will not get off “easy”, he or she is not subject to as serious penalties as other violators under the age of 21.
Our Underage DUI Defense Practice
At Helzer & Cromar, our lawyers understand the seriousness of these penalties on your child’s life now and in the future. We put up a strong defense that helps minimize these penalties as much as possible and reduces the risk of long-term consequences.
At the same time, we do not believe a child should walk away as if the charge was a joke. We guide our clients through the DUI/DUII process, and help them appreciate the seriousness of their situation.
