Underage Possession Of Alcohol

In New Jersey, it is against the law for anyone under the age of 21 to knowingly buy, possess or drink alcohol (with a few strict exceptions). If your son or daughter was charged with underage possession of alcohol, using a fake ID to purchase alcohol or any other related charge, turn to an experienced team of lawyers you can trust: D’Alessandro & D’Alessandro, LLC.

Our attorneys have been defending minors and adults in the municipal courts of northern and central New Jersey since 1975, including the towns of Bedminster, Basking Ridge and Bernards Township. Our extensive experience with and detailed knowledge of the municipal court processes are significant benefits to clients. We are here to present a diligent, intelligent defense designed to minimize the impact on your child’s life and future.

Protecting Your Child From Significant Legal Consequences

If your child misrepresents his or her age in order to get into a bar, for instance, it is considered a disorderly persons offense. A conviction carries a minimum fine of $500. Plus, the minor will lose his or her driver’s license for six months and may be required to enroll in an alcohol treatment program.

Because the penalties deserve to be taken seriously, our Basking Ridge defense lawyers will use all our resources in an attempt to get the charges reduced or dismissed. We have a respected reputation in all municipal courts in northern and central New Jersey, and we will work hard to protect your child’s rights to the fullest extent.
