Helping Parents And Young People Handle Underage DUI/DWI Charges

A conviction for underage driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a serious offense that can have a severe impact on a child's future. Educational and employment opportunities can suffer, and a conviction can result in significant penalties, including fines and the loss of your right to drive.

If your child is not of legal drinking age and has been arrested for underage consumption of alcohol or another alcohol-related offense, it is important that you seek the advice of an experienced defense attorney who can help minimize the impact of these types of charges.

At Kelly, Symonds & Reed, LLC, we represent young people in all types of alcohol-related offenses. We understand what is at stake in these cases, and we know how to build a strong defense designed to protect your child's interests. Whether through negotiation or litigation, we are committed to obtaining the best possible outcome in your child's case.

Working To Protect Your Child's Future

The laws regarding underage drinking in Missouri are very strict. Even a blood alcohol content (BAC) of as little as .02 percent can be enough for a person under 21 years of age to face charges. We conduct a thorough review of every case. We look for flaws in the prosecution's evidence that we can use to strengthen your defense and seize any opportunity to have the charges against you dismissed if there was anything improper about how the evidence was obtained.

We are prepared to defend you against any type of underage drinking charge, including the following:

  • Drunk driving
  • Minor in possession (MIP)
  • MIP by consumption
  • Illegal purchase of alcohol
  • Using fake identification to obtain alcohol
