Winston-Salem Underage DWI Defense Attorneys

Underage Drinking Charges

The attorneys at Wood & Rabil, LLP have extensive experience defending clients from underage drinking charges, including:

  • Purchasing
  • Consumption
  • Possession
  • Driving after consuming alcohol under age 21
  • Underage driving while impaired (DWI)
  • Fake ID

It is important to note that underage DWI has much more restrictive penalties than a normal DWI. If convicted of underage DWI, you may lose your license for a longer period. If you are under 21, you may not be able to get limited driving privileges.

We will work with you to develop a defense strategy that meets your needs. If you are a concerned parent, we can help you understand your child's situation. We understand your worries. We often ask parents to attend court hearings with their child to show support and to help guide their child to a better future.

First-time Offenders

First time offenders, charged with driving after consuming under age 21, who have not caused a serious accident are often given a break by the court. Many counties in North Carolina offer a first-time offender program where you can have criminal charges dismissed and/or expunged by meeting certain requirements, such as community service or probation. Our attorneys can help you understand the requirements for the program to develop a defense strategy that fits your needs.  These programs do not apply to normal DWI cases.

Underage Drug Charges

Drug-related charges are very serious and can affect you or your child in years to come. These charges could have a negative impact on job, college and graduate school applications. Our attorneys have successfully defended clients from all types of drug charges.
