Effective Representation for Alcohol-Related Offenses

Jeffrey DeRoberts is an experienced criminal defense lawyer serving Syracuse, Rome, Watertown, Utica and communities throughout Central New York. He can explain the consequences of paying a citation or pleading guilty to a minor misdemeanor, and options to reduce the impact of alcohol-related crimes.

DeRoberts Law Firm can often get charges dismissed or reduced, and we are almost always successful in protecting our clients' driving privileges. The Zero Tolerance statute, for example, suspends the license of anyone under 21 who drives after drinking any amount of alcohol. Mr. DeRoberts can get at least a restricted license so these teens and young adults can continue to drive to school or work. By offering you his personal attention throughout the duration of your child?s case, you can rest assured that your child's future is in good hands.

If you are under 21, the parents of a minor, an adult charged with furnishing alcohol to a minor, or accused of drinking and driving, contact our Syracuse office for a free consultation.
