Underage Consumption of Alcohol and Minor in Possession

Arizona Underage Drinking Lawyer

If you have been charged with underage drinking in Phoenix, you want an experienced criminal defense attorney to protect your rights. The laws governing minors and alcohol are complex, with different penalties based on whether you are over or under 18 years of age. In addition, some courts and agencies offer diversion programs that allow for dismissal of all charges upon completion of counseling, education, community service or some other prerequisite.

At the Law Office of Rachelle S. Ferraro, I have dedicated my practice exclusively to criminal defense over the last fifteen years. Board-certified as a Criminal Law Specialist by the Arizona Board of Legal Specialization, I am committed to the principle that you are innocent until proven guilty. I believe in personal service and communication, and I will work directly with you throughout the legal process. I take a straightforward approach, providing honest answers to your questions and a realistic assessment of your likelihood of success.

Phoenix Minor Consumption Lawyer

I protect the rights of minors charged with possession or consumption of alcohol. In Arizona, you can be charged with possession of alcohol simply by having access to it, whether you were actually drinking or not. The consequences of a charge or conviction can be serious, including the loss of driving privileges.

If you have been charged with an alcohol-related offense as a minor, I will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances surrounding your arrest, including whether law enforcement officers had probable cause for any search, seizure or arrest. If you have been charged with an underage DUI, I will also look to see if there were sufficient legal grounds to justify the initial traffic stop, as well as whether field sobriety or blood/breath alcohol tests were correctly conducted.
