UNDERAGE DRINKING IN PENNSYLVANIA
If you're under 21 you don't have to drink and drive to lose your driver's license in Pennsylvania. If convicted of an underage drinking crime in PA the accused will lose their driver's license for 90 days. How your case is handled could determine if and how long a criminal conviction will remain on the offender's criminal history. Thus, these cases can impact your immediate (ability to drive to work) and long term employment status (criminal record that might cause and employer to pass the application).
Depending on the violation and where it occurred, Lampman Law can help avoid the damaging impact of an underage drinking violation in PA.
PA TRAFFIC TICKETS
Traffic ticket points in PA are important to avoid because their accumulation may results in PennDOT action or a license suspension. Points can also increase the cost of auto insurance.
Certain tickets can immediately result in suspension upon a guilty plea. If you have one of these traffic tickets in PA you need a defense lawyer to help save your license. Never plead guilty to any traffic ticket until discussing it with an attorney. Sometimes hiring a lawyer for a traffic ticket may not be economically efficient-in those circumstances Lampman Law will decline the case. However, if the driver is facing points or a suspension Lampman Law can help. Attorney Lampman regularly negotiates serious traffic tickets with a plea to a non-point violation.
