Juvenile DUI


Have you or someone you care about been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) while under the legal drinking age? Florida's criminal justice system takes underage drinking and driving very seriously, and the consequences that come with a conviction can be devastating and have a lasting effect on your criminal record, driving record and the ability to obtain or maintain a valid drivers license.

A Florida juvenile DUI defense lawyer can give you a fighting chance to have your charges reduced or dropped altogether. The experienced underage DUI defense attorneys of the Colter Law Group in Stuart, Florida offer free initial consultations to clients accused of driving while intoxicated (DWI).

Florida takes underage drinking and driving seriously

In the State of Florida, drivers over the age of 21 can be convicted for driving under the influence of alcohol if tests show their blood alcohol level is at or above .08%. For drivers under 21, the threshold is lowered to .02%, making prosecution against those under the age of 21 even more aggressive.

The penalties for drinking and driving while underage can include a suspended or revoked driver's license, hefty fines, and even imprisonment, depending on the number of previous DUI convictions. For this reason, it is crucial that you have representation from a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney with extensive experience handling juvenile DWI cases. Oftentimes, a Florida public defender simply won't have the time and resources that a committed underage DWI defense lawyer can dedicate to your case.
