Keep Your Child's Future Bright in Montgomery County, PA

Pennsylvania law has a zero tolerance approach to juvenile DUI offenders. The legal allowable blood alcohol limit in Pennsylvania for persons under the age of 21 is .02 percent. Even taking a legal over-the-counter cold or cough remedy that contains alcohol may put your minor child over the blood alcohol content of .02 percent.

If your teenager has been charged with a juvenile DUI, it is important to retain an attorney who fully understands the juvenile justice system and can protect and fight for your child's rights throughout the juvenile DUI defense process. Contact the Law Office of Henry S. Hilles, III.

I have been a practicing lawyer since 1994, and worked for several years as a prosecutor in the Montgomery County prosecutor's office. I have helped hundreds of clients overcome DUI charges, including many charged with a juvenile DUI.

The juvenile justice system is quite different from the adult justice system and can be confusing even to lawyers who are experienced adult criminal defense attorneys. There is a different set of options that come into play with juvenile DUI offenders. Although juvenile DUI offenders do not have the option of participating in the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program, there are other programs available for juveniles that will ultimately result in the charges being dismissed and eligibility for record expungement. It is important to speak with an attorney experienced in juvenile DUI defense.

Help Parents Understand the Legal Issues and Options in DUI

I can help you understand the rights and options available for your teenager and make sure that he or she emerges from this experience without a result that will make it difficult to pursue an education or get the best possible employment in the future. It is especially important for an attorney to make sure that the juvenile emerges from this experience with the possibility of having the matter ultimately expunged.

It is important to understand that when a juvenile becomes an adult, a DUI offense will remain on his or her record until it is cleared (expunged) legally.

What happens when a young adult now out of college and applying for his or her dream job forgets to report a misdemeanor that occurred during college? Or, if the juvenile receives an underage drinking offense in high school or college? Years later, a background check will reveal that the person was convicted as a juvenile for underage drinking or DUI. The job offer likely will be rescinded. Don't Let This Happen to Your Son or Daughter.
