Regarding 21 & Under DUI Charges

Pasadena DUI Attorney Serving Altadena, Glendale, Las Canada, Flintridge, San Marino & Sierra Madre

The penalties which a minor may face if convicted of a DUI offense can be harsh.  If a minor's blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is .08% or more they can be prosecuted as an adult.  In most cases, a person under the age of 21 will be charged with a misdemeanor which can result in fines, an alcohol education program, probation, community service, home confinement and jail time.  Being convicted of DUI may adversely change a minor's life for many years to come.

California has a "zero tolerance" policy regarding underage drinking and driving.  If a minor's BAC is only .01%, they may still be charged with several DUI offenses.  A conviction can stay on an individual's permanent record which may affect future employment and educational opportunities.  With our decades of experience, at Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP we highly recommend the use of a knowledgeable Pasadena DUI lawyer to assist in resolving DUI charges against a minor.

Defending Your DUI Case 

When you are arrested and have a BAC above .01%, your license will be taken by the police.  In its place you will be given a "notice of suspension and temporary driver's license."  You have a limited amount of time in which to request a hearing from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), in order to get your license reinstated.  Our firm successfully assists clients to prepare and conduct these hearings, always with the goal of getting your license back for you.  If this is not possible, your license will be suspended for a year. 

Apart from the DMV hearing, you will still be facing the criminal charges against you and the consequences of those.  Preparation for the successful defense of your case must be started quickly, so that we have gathered all the needed evidence and information and can work out a winning strategy.  There can be flaws in police evidence, field sobriety tests, how your arrest was conducted and other areas that can prove extremely beneficial for your case.  Let us go to work now to protect your rights and future.

Contact a Pasadena DUI Attorney if you or a loved one is under the age of 21, have been arrested for DUI, and would like professional, competent legal assistance.
