Our Hartford law firm advocates for high school students, college students and other young people charged with underage drunk driving (DUI/OUI). At the Law Offices of Robert B. Muchinsky, LLC, our founding attorney defends clients against the criminal charges and advocates for them at DMV hearings to recover their driver’s licenses. We believe that most clients facing charges of underage drinking are not criminals but are instead guilty of youthful poor judgment. We seek to minimize the consequences of this and help them move forward with their lives. Connecticut has a zero-tolerance policy for individuals suspected of underage drunk driving. A young person charged with underage driving faces both a criminal charge and automatic license suspension. It is important that young adults have experienced legal counsel to help them navigate the criminal justice system and the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
Helping Young People And Their Parents
Many parents call our law firm to learn how we can help their children. They fear the consequences of an underage drunk driving conviction on their children’s lives. There are significant criminal penalties such as fines and jail time. There is a lengthy DMV license suspension. There are increased insurance rates. Parents have good reasons to be concerned.
However, the long-term consequences of an underage DUI conviction are often of greatest concern. Parents fear that their child will be denied admission to college, lose financial aid and become ineligible for certain jobs. Our lawyer has been able to help many young adults avoid these consequences and turn their lives around.
Representing High School And College Students
Our underage DUI clients include high school students throughout Connecticut and students at the University of Hartford, Yale University, Trinity College, Wesleyan University, Quinnipiac University, the University of Connecticut and other area colleges. For clients such as these, our attorney seeks alternative penalties that may result in an eventual dismissal of the charges. Our law firm does everything possible to give young clients another chance.
