Utah’s legislature and law enforcement agencies are dedicated to stopping drunk driving. In fact, our state has some of the toughest DUI laws in the country; laws that are vigorously enforced by police and prosecutors at every opportunity.
A significant number of these laws and enforcement efforts are aimed at underage DUI offenders. Why juveniles? The state’s theory is that by aggressively prosecuting newly licensed teenagers, early patterns of dangerous driving will not become lifetime habits.
As a result, there is a strict “Not a Drop” policy for underage DUI cases. This means that if a person under the age of 21 is caught with any measurable or detectable amount of alcohol in his or her system, he or she can be charged with underage drinking and driving or minor in consumption. If convicted of underage DUI, a minor will suffer a license suspension until the age of 21.
Providing A Defense Based On Experience

Our law firm focuses solely on criminal defense and has defended hundreds of people charged with DUI, including many who were under 21 at the time of their arrests. We have unique experience and skills in this area because of the training and professional history of our founding attorney Greg S. Law, a former police officer who also worked for a DUI task force and investigated DUI violations on a routine basis.
Lastly, several police officers and lawyers who have found themselves in trouble with the law have chosen to trust their defense to our law firm. We are proud of that fact and think that it speaks volumes about the quality of representation we provide.
