From a license suspension to community services and fines, the penalties imposed for underage DUI convictions are vast. The DUI attorneys at our firm give every case personal attention and are here for you.

Even though individuals over the age of 21 can have a bodily alcohol content (BAC) up to .08 before facing a DUI charge, the level is much lower for anyone who is underage. The BAC level drops to .02 or greater for anyone who is under the age of 21 under Michigan’s Impaired Driving Law.
