Chattanooga Underage DWI Defense Lawyers
Tennessee takes a no-tolerance stance on underage drinking and underage DUI. The blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit for a person under the age of 21 is .02 percent. In many cases, this could result in an underage person facing DUI charges after having just one drink. An underage DUI conviction will create a permanent criminal record that follows the young person for the rest of his or her life.
The Chattanooga underage DUI defense attorneys at the law firm of Summers, Rufolo & Rodgers, have successfully represented countless high school and college students accused of drinking and driving. You can rely on us to pursue every available option in an effort to avoid a conviction that could irreversibly impact your future.
