Handling Speeding Tickets For Underage Drivers
If you are under 21 years old and you receive a speeding ticket, the offense is taken seriously by the state. You face immediate loss of your driver’s license for up to a year. In fact, young drivers face increased penalties for many different traffic-related offenses, including drunk driving.
At Hirsch Criminal Defense, in Atlanta, Georgia, you can get help in the representation of young adults in matters related to traffic offenses such as speeding. Attorney Matt Hirsch understands the serious effect that these charges can have on you — from loss of license to fines and court costs — so he works hard to provide a vigorous and ethical criminal defense.
Attorney Hirsch uses years of experience and in-depth knowledge of the law to seek a favorable outcome in traffic ticket cases. He knows the law and the strategies that prosecutors use to get a conviction. He takes forceful action to protect his clients’ rights.
Drunk Driving Laws Are Different For Minors
In Georgia, the legal limit is .08. Adults over the age of 21 can be just under this limit and still be legal to drive in the state. For many adults, .08 means several drinks before getting behind the wheel.
Adults who are younger than 21 do not have that luxury. They must have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .02 or less. Otherwise, young drivers face drunk driving charges. This small amount of alcohol can mean less than one drink for a teenager or young 20-year-old before driving.
To help teens beat drunk driving charges, attorney Hirsch negotiates with prosecutors to reach a mutually agreeable resolution. He is a true trial lawyer who is in court on a daily basis. He knows who the prosecutors are and what strategies they usually implement. Because he has relationships with people who prosecute under 21 traffic and drunk driving offenses, clients benefit from having legal representation that negotiates effectively and takes decisive action.
