Facing an Underage DUI Charge?
Put One of Colorado Springs' Top DUI Attorneys on Your Side
If you have been arrested for underage DUI, or if you’re a parent whose son or daughter has been arrested, I urge you to contact me at Geoff Heim, Attorney, LLC. As a Colorado Springs underage DUI attorney, former prosecutor and member of the National College for DUI Defense, I have the knowledge, resources, and experience necessary to aggressively defend your DUI case!
Under 42-4-1301 C.R.S., it’s illegal to drink and drive with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or greater. Under Colorado’s Zero Tolerance Law, that threshold goes down to just .02% for drivers under the age of 21.
If you were under 20 and your BAC was between .02% and .079%, you face the following penalties:
If the underage driver’s BAC was .05% or greater, then he or she will be treated the same as an adult. It is vital to secure representation from a skilled Colorado Springs DUI attorney if you or your child are facing adult charges.
The penalties for having a BAC of .08% or higher are:
There are additional consequences of an underage DUI which will have a negative impact on your auto insurance premiums, and in some cases on your ability to play on college sports teams, and on your ability to gain admittance into certain colleges. When you’re beginning to build a future, the last thing you want is to have a DUI put your name at the bottom of a pile of candidates for a sports team, a job, or a college of your dreams. As an experienced Colorado Springs DUI lawyer, I can help ensure that your future is being protected.
“Geoff Heim has been professional and supportive during my entire legal process from 2015-2017.

The professional guidance was much needed with the first legal circumstance that I had ever gone through. Geoff was always a trusting and informative professional in how to help navigate the legal system and not waist time in getting through the process. I would recommend Geoff Heim to anyone needing honest assistance and expert representation with relatable legal situations.”
“Geoff always had my best interest in mind. He answered any questions I had with confidence, and always kept me updated in my case. After working with Geoff, I would recommend him to anyone looking for a good attorney.”
“I have known Geoff as a friend and attorney for nearly 20 years. He and I came up the ranks as DA’s in El Paso County-Colorado Springs. From early on, through this day, I am confident in saying that Geoff is one of the most creative, intelligent, hardworking and pleasant attorneys I have had the pleasure of working with. Geoff went into private practice several years before me and I have often consulted with him on cases both as a DA and now private attorney. He is always collegial, responsive and strategically very clever. To this day, we consult regularly on major criminal cases. Since I am in Denver and he is in Colorado Springs, I do not hesitate in referring him to clients who need a top-notch attorney in El Paso and surrounding counties.”

Super cool cat….always available to help without judgement
Welcoming, professional and friendly. Great people, Geoff was great and Molly was awesome!
Wish I would have took this gentleman’s advice. He was upfront and honest and that is scarce in this day and age.
While using Mr. Heim’s legal services, he and his team, provided nothing short of above and beyond. I will always highly recommend his services to anyone who is seeking legal assistance in the area.
Geoff handled a minor traffic infraction I had in a timely manner, and, although I am not an expert, and one could say, allergic to legal matters, I found the settlement he obtained to be more than accommodating. More importantly, he takes the anxiety and fear out of what can be a daunting, painful process. As with anything of worth there are costs involved, however, he worked withing my budget. What should also be noted is that Geoff is a caring, and approachable human being, yet a highly organized and effective attorney.
The justice system is best navigated with a true professional on your side. I hired Geoff Heim to represent me on a case that I honestly didn’t think that I would stand a chance in winning. During the initial consultation, Geoff provided much needed reassurance that we did have traction and that there were certain aspects of the case that may return a potential dismissal or “lessor charged” verdict. Communication throughout the entire process was absolutely solid. I could call or email, and all questions were answered promptly. Geoff made sure that I completely understood all aspects of the case and the potential outcomes, in terms that I could easily understand. In the end, we ended up prevailing in my case as a dismissal was granted. I am confident that the dismissal would not have happened if it weren’t for Geoff. Thanks again for helping me succeed during a very difficult time!
Geoff provided expert legal advice, guidance, and representation in a kind compassionate manner. Always professional, but has a way about him that allows you as the client to feel complete trust in him. The outcome from my case could not have gone better. Geoff spent extra time and was willing to go back additional dates to ensure that the desired outcome was reached despite significant additional time commitment on his part. I am sincerely grateful for the service from Geoff as well as his assistant Molly who were both always quick to respond to any question no matter how trivial. In a time of great uncertainty it was extremely comforting having Geoff at my side.
I referred a friend to Geoff because I had him represent me a while back with my case. Geoff is a stand up attorney. He cares about his clients and will go the extra mile to make sure your needs are taken care of.
Knowledgeable and empathetic lawyer. Fantastic team behind him and a pleasure to work with. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Geoff helped my adult daughter twice with two very difficult situations. Even though it was a tense time for us all where emotions ran high, Geoff was always professional and working for the best for she and I. The outcome was wonderful and I appreciate it so much.
If you need a great Lawyer and knows what he is doing. This is the man to go to! The years I was facing vs what I actually got was amazing. Thank you so much Geoff Heim. You’re the man and thank you again for you help.
super helpful thank you for all your help and insight!
During COVID lockdown Geoff was able to help my brother. He and Molly were great to work with! I recommend Geoff to anyone needing a defense attorney.
I sent a request to Mr. Heim’s offices regarding some DUI/DMV issues I was having. I quickly received a response from Molly Hogan out of that office who asked for some additional information. When I provided it, she quickly looked up my cases and was able to offer me some invaluable information. The office didn’t make any attempt to charge me, nor force me into a consultation. They assisted me for no benefit, and it saved me time and difficulty. That shows integrity and a real desire to help when possible. I expected to need to pay for the expertise I received. Hopefully, I’ll never need an attorney again, but I’d go here without hesitation. My sincerest thanks to this office!
