Any person who receives an underage alcohol or furnishing alcohol citation should obtain counsel for such an offense. Though civil in nature punishable by a fine, such a citation if not handled properly in the criminal justice system, can negatively impact one's employment, scholarship and education, or other collateral consequences. Rene Sandler, Esq. and Sandler Law LLC regularly handle underage alcohol and furnishing citations. Rene Sandler, Esq. recently obtained a dismissal of all charges on behalf of her clients in such a case after successfully challenging the conduct of the police alcohol task force in Montgomery County, Maryland. In that case, the Judge found that the alcohol task force members violated the constitutional rights of the homeowners who were Ms. Sandler's clients.
