Underage Drinking

Orlando Underage Drinking Attorneys

The Orlando criminal attorneys at Longwell Lawyers works with minors and college students who are charged with underage drinking offenses:

  • Possession of Alcohol by a Person Under the Age of 21
  • Underage DUI/ Teenage drunk driving
  • Fake ID
  • Altering an ID
  • Underage purchase
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Public intoxication

If your minor child has been charged with underage drinking (including teenage drunk driving), it is important to speak with an experienced criminal attorney. In Florida, anyone under the age of 21 who is driving with a blood alcohol level (BAL) of over 0.02 can be charged with an underage DUI. The BAL is lower than the 0.08 required for adults, but the consequences of being charged for a DWI-DUI as a minor are just as serious.

It is not uncommon for college students on spring break or high school students to be charged with underage drinking offenses. These offenses include but are not limited to minor consumption or use of fake identification. Our criminal attorneys have handled thousands of criminal cases since 1993, including many that involve underage drinking and DUI. We will defend these cases whether they are being charged as a juvenile or an adult. We work to find ways to minimize the negative impact that an underage drinking offense can have on your child’s future.

In underage DUI matters, we will explore issues of whether the officer had probable cause to stop your car, whether the Intoxilyzer (breathalyzer) test was administered correctly, and any other issues germane to your case.
