Underage Drinking

If your child has been caught and charged with underage drinking, it is important that you take legal steps to protect his or her future. Not only can these consequences have an impact on the child's life now, but such a charge on his or her record can block college admissions, scholarships and even jobs.

Salem Underage DUI Lawyer

At the Wilson C. Pasley, PLC of Roanoke, Virginia, we protect young people from the fallout of their youthful indiscretions. Our firm helps to offer children a second chance to learn from their mistakes rather than having those mistakes follow them for years to come.

Without the representation of a skilled attorney, juveniles will face a mandatory minimum fine of $500 or 50 hours of community service. In addition, there will be a six-month driver's license suspension and supervised probation. In some jurisdictions, the court may allow a restricted driver's license to work and school.

A skilled lawyer can advocate on behalf of your child in the juvenile court, asking for a more lenient punishment. While the juvenile justice system is eager to provide second chances, it is a complicated process, requiring knowledgeable guidance and a firm that knows how to navigate the system.
