Underage Possession Of Alcohol MIP
It can be frightening when you are arrested or charged with underage possession of alcohol. Police and prosecutors often use intimidation tactics to obtain evidence, solicit confessions or push for guilty pleas. Regardless of what you have been told, there are ways to fight these charges and/or minimize the impact to you — but you need a certain type of attorney to do so.

If you or your child has been charged with underage drinking in Georgia (also commonly called underage possession or minor in possession), we encourage you to contact our law firm to learn about all the available defense options. In many cases, we can secure dropped charges or an acquittal.
Did You Know?
In Georgia, charges for underage possession of alcohol and underage consumption of alcohol are the same.
Our law firm is known for successfully challenging evidence. We start by asking basic questions in MIP cases and use the answers to build our defense. These questions can include:
- Was there alcohol found on the person?
- Did the minor actually confess to underage consumption?
- Did the police officer report the smell of alcohol?
- Does the minor have any prior incidents involving alcohol?
When dropped charges or a dismissal is absolutely not possible, there are a number of additional avenues we can explore to mitigate the consequences of your charges. At that time, one of our main priorities will be to keep the incident off of your permanent record or advise on how to secure a restriction/expungement down the road.
