Committed to helping young people fight DUI charges

In a matter of weeks, colleges and universities throughout Tennessee will be going on spring break, giving students a much-needed reprieve from their academic pursuits and associated responsibilities. While many of these younger people will be flocking to popular beachfront destinations in Florida, Texas and even Mexico, others will be staying closer to home, perhaps remaining on campus or heading home for the holiday.

Those college students who remain here in Tennessee may not be able to enjoy the sandy beaches, but this doesn't mean they won’t be able to blow off some steam. Indeed, many of those 21 years old and up will undoubtedly be spending their evenings in area bars and nightclubs.

While this is perfectly understandable, it's nevertheless important for these young people to understand the importance of moderation, especially if they plan on getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle after a night of partying.

That's because law enforcement officials will be out in greater numbers over spring break looking to make DUI arrests.

In the event any young person needs additional motivation to use Uber or arrange for a designated driver, consider that a DUI conviction will not only result in jail time, fines and license revocation, but also a permanent criminal record. This, of course, can threaten everything from continued enrollment in their institution and scholarship eligibility to graduate school admission and even future professional licensure.  

Given the gravity of these charges, those young people who have been charged with DUI must given serious consideration to speaking with a skilled legal professional as soon as possible.

At McKellar & Easter, Attorneys at Law, we understand just how alarming and altogether confusing this situation can be for young people. That's why our skilled attorneys are committed to staying by their side throughout the entire process, protecting their rights, their freedom and their future.
