Pennsylvania Underage DUI

Pennsylvania Underage Drinking Laws
An underage DUI charge is nothing to dismiss. You probably have a lot of questions:

  • Will my parents find out?
  • Can I go to jail?
  • Will I get kicked out of college for this DUI?
  • Can I study abroad if I have a DUI conviction on my record?
  • Will I lose my future career?
  • Can I get into medical school with a DUI conviction?
  • Can I get into post-grad school with a DUI?
  • Is my life over because of an underage DUI?

When selecting which attorney to hire, please consider:

  • Can you call anytime and talk to a live person?
  • Do they offer payment plans with no credit checks?
  • Will your attorney be attentive and explain what’s going on?

At The McShane Firm, we answer yes to all of these questions. We strive to provide you with a great customer service experience during this tough time.

A DUI charge can trigger many consequences that can doom the future of any young person:

  • Auto insurance maybe denied, meaning you won’t be able to drive
  • Massive inconvenience for work attendance, off-campus study and life due to license suspension
  • Loss of scholarship or other disciplinary action due to violating student code of conduct policy
  • A DUI conviction will remain on your criminal history forever. Future employers will be able to see it and many will not hire you or you will have some embarrassing excuses to make
