If you are a young driver, a young person who rides along with friends or the parent of a teen driver, it may be helpful to understand how prevalent underage drunk driving is in Massachusetts and across the U.S.

Understanding the possible consequences of underage DUI

From costly and dangerous wrecks to license suspension, drunk driving can turn lives completely upside down. At Attorney John B. Seed, we know all about the various ways that people have had their lives ruined as a result of these allegations. However, for those who have not yet reached the age to legally consume alcohol, drunk driving charges can be particularly problematic.

DUI defense strategies: beyond basic training

Because the U.S. legal system is designed to protect your rights, a Massachusetts law enforcement officer who arrests you for DUI must follow a specific protocol to prevent these from being violated.

To ensure that he provides clients with skilled, knowledgeable DUI defense strategies, attorney John B. Seed has completed advanced education about techniques for investigating arresting officers in this type of case.

However, U.S. News & World Report notes that increasingly widespread awareness and knowledge about a rare condition known as auto-brewery syndrome suggests that at least some of those motorists may be telling the truth.
