Underage DUI Lawyer in Bakersfield, CA

Don’t Put Your Future on the Line

California takes a "zero tolerance" approach to underage drinking and driving. That means that if someone under the age of 21 is found to have a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) level at .01% or above, they will be arrested for underage DUI, even if there was no erratic driving or other indicators of drunk driving.Alcohol and keys on a table

If you or your family member has been arrested and charged, it is crucial that you contact a qualified attorney at once. The driver's license suspension for underage DUI is often for one year, and in some cases, the car will be impounded and later sold.
