Reading Underage DUI Defense Attorneys

Protecting the Future of Young People in Pennsylvania

Everyone makes mistakes when they are young, some of which are more serious than others. Drinking before the age of 21 and then getting behind the wheel certainly qualifies as a grievous error. That said, a young person does not deserve to have his or her future clouded forever by such a mistake.

At Emkey Law Firm, our Reading underage DUI defense lawyers fight to prevent our young clients from being convicted of alcohol-related offenses. Convictions carry harsh consequences, including driver's license suspension, a criminal record and even difficulty getting into certain schools or landing a job in the future.

Our job is to minimize the impact whenever possible. Whether you are a young driver or a parent of a young person accused of underage DUI in Berks County, reach out to an attorney at Emkey Law Firm for help.

Keeping Your Driver's License

If you plead guilty to underage DUI, your driver's license will automatically be suspended for 90 days. Of the immediate problems presented by a DUI, the license suspension is often the toughest to deal with because it interferes so much with daily life. Whenever possible, our Reading lawyers challenge the evidence in order to get the charges dismissed or reduced to something less severe such as disorderly conduct. These kinds of options allow a young person to retain his or her license.

Focused on Rehabilitation

When young people are convicted of DUI, Pennsylvania judges are often open to alternative sentences. For first-time offenders, this often includes counseling as part of the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program. The idea is not to punish young people in ways that ruin their lives, but instead to help them avoid these kinds of problems in the future. Our attorneys seek these alternative sentences in situations where the case cannot be dismissed outright.
