For a college student or teen arrested for drunk driving, zero tolerance policies and a combination of severe New York statutes can mean tough penalties.

New York Drunk Driving Defense Lawyers For Underage Motorists
With offices in White Plains and New City, our law firm is convenient for people on either side of the Hudson. Greenspan & Greenspan‘s tradition of client service goes back more than 50 years, and throughout that time, our White Plains lawyers for underage DWI defense have kept pace with the changes in state law, investigative techniques and defense strategies.
Our goal in an underage drinking and driving case is to protect a young client from the worst potential consequences of a conviction. We not only consider the jail time and driver’s license revocation that could result from an underage DWI charge, we also look out for the long-range interests of the people we serve. Will a conviction affect your standing at school or your ability to get to work? What about the risk of punishment on a future drunk driving arrest?
The defense strategy we recommend will depend on the facts of the case and our client’s personal circumstances. It will be advisable to develop and present a defense on the merits of the DWI or DWAI charge.
For a driver under 21, a blood alcohol level of just .02 percent will support a conviction of an alcohol-related offense under New York law. The underage motorist does not even have to be impaired, let alone intoxicated, in order to violate New York law! Our familiarity with the practical realities of DWI defense can often point the way toward a positive outcome.
