Compassionate, Experienced Criminal And Traffic Defense Attorney
As a criminal and traffic defense attorney who has handled thousands of cases, I understand the anxiety that you are experiencing if you or your son or daughter has been charged with a crime involving alcohol or drugs. A single mistake of this kind could derail an entire future. In addition to the fines, potential jail time and other criminal penalties, a suspension, an expulsion or inclusion of this crime on a permanent record could have severe consequences for future career prospects.

Alcohol charges are the most common charges that high school and college students face. There are a number of underage offenses that involve alcohol, including:
- Underage possession or use of alcohol
- Driving after consuming under age 21
- Person over 21 buying alcohol for a minor
- Using a fake ID
Each of these crimes carries serious consequences and affects your ability to be accepted into college, grad school or to obtain a job. You need the services of a qualified attorney like myself to help you.
Adolescent Drug Charges
In addition to alcohol, drug charges are common for adolescents and young adults. I represent clients who have been charged with:
- Possession of marijuana and other controlled substances
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Illegal possession of prescription medication
- Possession with intent to sell or deliver (PWISD)
- Drug trafficking
Other Underage Drinking And Drug-Related Charges
The loss of discretion and poor decision-making that come into play when drugs and alcohol are involved often lead to a number of other crimes, as well. At my law office, I can defend you against charges that include:
- Public urination
- Public intoxication
- Intoxicated and disruptive behavior
- Simple affray
- Shoplifting and larceny
People also drive less carefully when under the influence, leading to traffic violations that include racing, reckless driving, aggressive driving and speeding.
