Helping You With Your Underage DUI

When you are under 21 years old and pulled over on suspicion of driving drunk, your legal BAC level must be .02 or lower in order to not be charged with a DUI. While you will face the same penalties associated with an adult DUI charge, you also are at risk of:

  • Getting suspended from your college or university
  • Having your license suspended with neither work permit availability nor early reinstatement
  • A six-month license suspension if your BAC was below .08
  • A 12-month license suspension if your BAC measured higher than .08

If you are underage and have been charged with a DUI, contact Healan Law Offices, P.C., today. Our Winder underage DUI attorneys will help you craft a defense customized to your situation.

Helping You With Your Commercial DUI

Similar to an underage DUI, being charged with a commercial DUI while driving a semitruck or other commercial vehicle carries harsher punishments in addition to the typical penalties associated with a DUI charge. Your commercial driver’s license could be at serious risk if you have been pulled over with a BAC level of .04 or higher. Other consequences include:

  • One year suspension of commercial driving privileges for any DUI
  • A permanent criminal record revealing a DUI conviction, making it hard to be hired as a commercial driver
  • A lifetime suspension of your commercial driver’s license after a second DUI conviction
  • Impeded personal driving privileges — Even if you get a speeding ticket in a personal vehicle, it can be serious violation for commercial license holders.

Our Barrow County CDL DUI attorneys will strive to protect your driving privileges by providing a solid defense during your DUI case. Contact Healan Law Offices, P.C., today to speak to an accomplished attorney who understands what you are up against.
