Lawyer For A Strong Defense To Alcohol-Related Crimes
Each situation is unique. If you have been accused of an alcohol-related crime, the best way to gain legal information is to talk with an experienced attorney about your personal situation. At the McAdams Law Office, LLC, we work directly with clients to tailor our approaches to their needs and goals.
Our Greeley, Colorado, law firm handles a wide range of alcohol-related crimes:
- DUI/DWAI: We represent people accused of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. These drunk driving charges can have a lasting impact on your future, so it is critical that you work with an experienced lawyer.
- Minor in possession: Our founding attorney represents underage people accused of illegal possession or consumption of alcohol in Colorado.
- Providing alcohol to a minor: We represent adults facing charges of supplying alcohol to minors — a misdemeanor in Colorado.
- Contributing to the delinquency of a minor by providing alcohol: This offense is a class four felony and can carry serious consequences. For this reason, it should only be handled by working with an experienced criminal defense attorney.
- Public intoxication: Public intoxication is the appearance of a person who is under the influence of drugs or alcohol in a public place.
The Consequences of Minor in Possession
Many people believe that it is not a big deal, but a conviction for minor in possession (MIP) can have serious consequences. These include losing your driver’s license for three months after a conviction, attending alcohol education or treatment and participating in community service. The MIP charge may also threaten your relationship with the college or university you attend, like the University of Northern Colorado (UNC) or Colorado State University (CSU). A conviction may also impair your ability to receive financial aid in the future.
Many minors who seek our services worry that we will tell their parents about a minor in possession charge. They should know that our consultations are confidential, and we do not discuss their cases with family members without our clients’ permission.
