If you or your child has been arrested for drinking and driving underage, you need an attorney who can help you through this. Underage drivers are likely to face more severe consequences than someone who is over 21. In addition to a driver's license suspension and other penalties, this will remain on your record — potentially causing you problems for many years.
Convictions for drunk driving cannot be expunged in Maryland. This means your DUI will stay on your permanent record even if you are convicted before turning 18.
