Underage DUI in Seattle

A Seattle Minor DUI Can Have Serious Consequences

DUI testAt first glance, a Seattle minor DUI might not seem like a big deal. The reality is that a conviction will result in a criminal record, which can have a detrimental impact on a young person’s life for years to come. Don’t take any chances with your future or that of someone you love – contact one of our Seattle minor DUI attorneys today and do everything you can to prevent acquiring a criminal record.

A Seattle minor DUI is given to persons under the age of 21 who are caught driving with a blood alcohol content of .02 or higher. You can also be charged with a minor DUI if you have any amount of marijuana THC in your system following a blood draw and toxicology analysis.

A conviction imposes discretional penalties that include fines and jail time. Under Washington State law, under age drinking and driving is a serious criminal misdemeanor that is punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.  Our criminal attorneys handle all City of Seattle Municipal Court DUI cases, as well as all King County District Court DUI cases.

Our team of Seattle minor DUI lawyers is all too familiar with the severity of these charges. Every year we are contacted by young people in Seattle who plead guilty to a minor DUI charge only to realize later that this was a huge mistake.

Why? It’s because a criminal record in today’s job marketplace can leave a blemish on a person’s character that is impossible to erase – even if it’s unwarranted. Employers routinely conduct background checks on prospective employees. When they have a choice between someone with a clean record and someone with a criminal record, who do you think they are most likely to choose for a good-paying job? This means one beer, and one moment of bad judgment, could have a devastating ripple effect on a person’s life many years into the future.

Our Seattle minor DUI attorneys will do everything legally possible to protect your future, and keep you from getting a criminal record, by aggressively defending your rights.

Great service and follow up. Its a scary thing when you need a lawyer but Jason and his team make it less so. Very happy with our outcome. Scott Thibeault
"I can't say enough great things about Jason Newcombe Law Office. I am retired military and I highly recommend Jason Newcombe Law Office. I reached out to Jason's office after sitting for hours reviewing multiple Domestic Violence Law Offices in King County. He responded before that day was over. I spoke with Jason's both in-person and by phone; felt very comfortable with his years of experience and straight talk. He took on my case, took me through the process with sound advice. The Attorney Erin Lane who accompanied me with my court appearances; can't praise and thank her enough for her time, selflessness and educational information prior to each court appearance. She made a really daunting task for me less fearful, given such grim circumstances. I am forever grateful for Jason and the Team of Attorneys." Tommy Harville
