What DUI Charges Involve Children?

While child exploitation is not directly related to DUI charges, there are some criminal charges that involve both driving under the influence and children. Child endangerment is the most common charge individuals face when driving drunk with a child in the car. This charge is very serious, and could result in severe punishments and an investigation by Child Protective Services. Child Protective Services, or CPS, is an agency that works to protect the health and wellbeing of children. CPS may temporarily remove your child from your home during an investigation and has the right to request the judge revokes your parental custody altogether.

Client Reviews

Scott and Bob achieved exactly the result I was looking for. They were prompt and effective. If I ever have any other legal issues (which hopefully I don't)... I'd certainly work with them again. M. C.
Scott Grabel was kind enough to look into my situation and take his time to speak with me free of charge. Most attorneys will not do that. He gave me reassurance that I had nothing to worry about. If I am ever in need of an attorney in the future I will be calling Scott Grabel and will highly recommend him to anyone with a legal issue. G. K.
Highly recommended lawyer! Mr. Grabel is very professional and knowledgable. My case happened suddenly on Saturday, but Mr. Grabel is 24/7 on call, which was what I needed. I called on Saturday night and the front desk told me I would hear back from the lawyer shortly. Only 30mins later, I got a call from Mr. Grabel himself and he eased my anxiety quickly by explaining the situation and options I had. I knew I was in good hands. ... Z. W.
