Andover Underage DUI Lawyer

Lawrence Juvenile Drunk Driving Attorney

An arrest for underage drinking and driving is often considered a "youthful mistake." However one describes it, underage drunk driving is a situation that carries serious consequences for the arrested young person.

The Law Offices of Linda Nutting Cummings, in Andover, Massachusetts, represents high school students, college students and other young people who have been arrested on charges of operating under the influence (OUI) of alcohol or drugs.

Attorney Linda Nutting Cummings is a former Massachusetts Assistant Attorney General and a former criminal prosecutor who understands the "ins and outs" of OUI laws and procedures. If you are an underage driver, or the parent of an underage driver who has been arrested and charged with OUI, it is important that you retain competent and experienced representation immediately.

It's Your Future — Protect It | Andover Underage DUI Attorney

If you were arrested for OUI in Massachusetts — also referred to driving while intoxicated (DWI) and driving under the influence (DUI) — it is important not to confuse a "youthful mistake" with a "mistake that has no consequences."

If you are under the age of 21 and you drive after drinking even a small amount of alcohol, you can be arrested and charged with OUI. Even if it is your first offense, you can face serious penalties and consequences that can haunt you for years. By retaining an experienced OUI lawyer, however, you may preserve your chance to stop or limit the severity of:

  • Multi-month, or multi-year driver's license suspension
  • Administrative fines
  • Jail sentence
  • Other punishment such as community service or mandatory treatment

Perhaps more importantly, you could prevent a criminal conviction from limiting your future educational and job opportunities.

But Can You Really Fight an Underage DWI? Yes, You Can.

The police must follow strict guidelines when they stop a car, interact with the driver and then administer a blood-alcohol test. We have the skills and experience to assess each case, discover and then use any potential issues or problems to defend you in court.
