Underage DUI Has Lasting Consequences

A conviction for driving under the influence in California can lead not only to serious fines, but also to difficulties that many people do not expect. A conviction can make it difficult to meet up with family and friends and make it hard to get to work or school.

I am Santa Monica DUI attorney Chris W. Blaylock. At my firm, the Law Offices of C.W. Blaylock, I represent people throughout the San Fernando Valley who have been accused of crimes, including underage drunk driving.

Creative Legal Counsel Working For You

When it comes to underage drinking and driving, California has a zero tolerance policy. That means you can be charged with DUI if you are under the age of 21 and you are caught driving a motor vehicle with any detectable alcohol in your system. Depending on the circumstances, you could face penalties upon conviction that include:

  • Three to five years' probation
  • Fines
  • Mandatory DUI education
  • Time in jail

I understand that facing criminal charges can be overwhelming. I work hand in hand with my clients to ensure that they understand their rights and how best to proceed. Whether in negotiations or in the courtroom, I pursue every option to make sure that my clients' interests are represented and that I achieve as positive an outcome as possible.
