Protecting Underaged Individuals’ Futures Against DUI Charges
At The Law Offices of Richard B. Rosenblatt, PC, we understand the serious penalties that can accompany an underage DUI conviction. In addition to criminal penalties like license suspension, fines and possible jail time, teens and young adults charged with underage drinking and driving risk serious harm to their futures. The presence of a DUI on your record or your child’s record could mean a loss of scholarships, suspension or dismissal from school and limited professional opportunities.
We aim to protect your future by providing a thorough and aggressive criminal defense. Our law firm’s founding attorney, Richard B. Rosenblatt, has more than 20 years of experience helping clients accused of serious offenses. We know how to establish a robust defense tailored to protect your rights and your future.
Protecting Your Child’s Rights And Future
It is true that Maryland allows those under 21 to consume alcohol under the supervision of a parent or immediate family member. However, teens or young adults who drink run serious risks if they get behind the wheel. The legal limit for drinking and driving in Maryland is .08 for those over 21. For those under 21, the percentage drops to .02. Depending on a person’s weight and gender, that can be as little as one or two drinks.
Our firm has extensive experience working with young people and their parents who find themselves facing the criminal justice system. Our legal team will examine whether:
- Police had a reasonable suspicion of your ability to drive
- Field sobriety tests, if given, were administered properly
- Breathalyzer test results were contaminated or skewed due to poor maintenance of the machine or because of human error
The stakes are high when it comes to an underage DUI. Our lawyers are committed to mounting a thorough defense to protect your best interest.
