Dedicated Legal Help For Underage Drinking Or Drug Use Charges

Were you caught throwing a party while your parents were out of town? Was your teenager charged with underage drinking and driving? Is a potential drug possession charge leaving you concerned about the future?

I am Kansas City criminal defense lawyer, David M. Lurie, and I have been providing strong representation to clients for more than 45 years. I understand that teenagers make mistakes. I will provide full protection under the law to avoid having those mistakes affect their future.

A Strong Defense For Young People Charged With Crimes

As an experienced attorney, I can handle all types of underage drinking and drug charges including:

  • Driving while impaired (DWI)
  • Driving while drunk
  • Leaving the scene of an accident (also known as a hit-and-run crash)
  • Minor in possession of drugs or alcohol
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Using false IDs to obtain alcohol

A conviction for any of these charges carries different penalties for juveniles than adults, but they are still serious. One charge can lead to license suspension and may result in being denied high school extracurricular activities, or even admission to a college or university. By contacting my firm right away, I can begin putting together a strong case that aims to mitigate the consequences as much as possible. I can also help you explore potential paths to clearing your record after a charge.

Work With A Lawyer Who Knows What’s At Stake

At my firm, I provide a compassionate and nonjudgmental environment where both teens and their parents can feel comfortable seeking legal representation. I work with my clients to build a defense based on their needs and desired outcome. My clients feel confident that I will not simply push their case through the standard motions, but rather take the time necessary to obtain a successful outcome. I will customize your case to achieve the most favorable result possible.
