Underage DUI Lawyers in Mt. Pleasant

Representing Minors Facing DUI Charges Across South Carolina

Underage drinking is never a good thing, but neither is a maximum sentence for someone who simply made a mistake. Here at Joe Good III, P.A., we are here to jump into the fray and protect those being accused of Underage DUI. 

What Happens When You Are Arrested For a DUI As A Minor?

When a minor is arrested for a DUI in South Carolina, a series of intricate legal proceedings and impactful consequences unfold. From the initial arrest to navigating the juvenile court system, every step requires careful attention and strategic planning. 

If an officer suspects a minor is driving under the influence, they will likely move into action quickly, taking the person into custody and require a BAC test or field sobriety test. This stage involves thorough documentation of personal details and the circumstances surrounding the arrest that set the stage for future legal actions.

Following the arrest, the minor's parents or legal guardians should be promptly notified and should always be present during questioning. Legal representation is paramount as they enter the juvenile court system, where specialized proceedings tailored to minors' circumstances take place. 

That’s where Joe Good Law Firm comes in. Our skilled DUI defense attorneys are ready to advocate for your rights, navigating complex legal procedures, and formulating defense strategies to achieve the most favorable outcome possible.
