Defending youth against minor in possession, nuisance party charges

Some parents see underage drinking as a rite of passage, or as a necessary evil among college and high school students; others see it, and the possibility of a minor in possession charge, as a serious problem with potentially serious consequences for their children’s future.

If your son or daughter was ticketed for underage drinking — “minor in possession” (MIP) is a misdemeanor that can impact car insurance and certain career paths — or charged with a crime regarding participation in a “nuisance party,” you may need legal advice, and your child may need strong legal representation. The attorneys at Barberi Law can provide the advice you need during this challenging time.

  • What exactly happens in Isabella County treatment and education programs?
  • Why does a student have to avoid any run-in with the law for three years after an MIP conviction?
  • What exactly will an attorney do for me?
  • What if an OWI charge is involved in the case?
