Although the legal drinking age in the United States is 21, we understand that people generally have their first alcoholic beverage before that point. The law is not so understanding, particularly for people under the age of 21 who drink and drive. In Colorado, if you are under 21 and have been charged with drunk driving, different rules apply to your case.
Your whole life is ahead of you. You need a lawyer who is experienced at defending people against drunk driving charges. At Shazam Kianpour & Associates, P.C., our attorneys provide a tenacious defense against all DUI/DWAI charges, including underage DUI charges. Contact us today.
Experienced Lawyers Who Know How to Fight These Charges
If you are under 21, a blood alcohol content (BAC) level as low as .02 percent can result in a conviction. By comparison, for people 21 or older, a BAC of .08 percent or higher is necessary to be convicted of DUI. In short, if you are under 21, drink one alcoholic beverage and get behind the wheel, you can be charged with DUI.
We will explore every possible defense against your charge, such as the following:
- Determining whether or not the initial traffic stop violated your constitutional rights
- Analyzing the Breathalyzer machine to determine whether it was accurate
- Determining whether or not your blood, breath or urine test was handled correctly
We will also defend you before the DMV hearing to avoid suspension of your driver's license and against any related alcohol charges, such as minor in possession (MIP). Our aggressive, thorough approach to protecting your rights can lead to favorable results, including the dismissal of certain charges or plea agreements to lesser charges.
