Minor in Possession (MIP) of Alcohol

Michigan has a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to minors and alcohol. If you were caught by police at a party or were pulled over and ticketed for having alcohol in your hand or in your system, a conviction on your record could haunt you for years to come. You could be excluded from some types of employment because of a permanent criminal record. During this time, you need an experienced and aggressive criminal defense lawyer who knows how to fight back against prosecutors. Our underage drinking defense lawyers in Kalamazoo are up to the challenge.

Juvenile Drunk Driving Defense

It is a crime for a person under 21 years of age to operate a vehicle in Michigan with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .02% or greater. Our lawyers routinely work with parents and children who face serious criminal charges like underage DUI. Our job is to work quickly to obtain a positive outcome and to remain available to answer any questions our clients might have. We want our clients to not only understand the process but to enjoy a bright future unaffected by a criminal record.

Standing up for the Rights of Youth

Our law firm was instrumental in getting the city of Kalamazoo to change its ordinance concerning minor in possession of alcohol. We successfully motioned for a dismissal on a case claiming that the Kalamazoo city ordinance was unconstitutionally requiring young people to submit to a breathalyzer test. Now, police must produce a warrant if a minor does not consent to the breath test.
