Possession of Alcohol by a Minor in Rhode Island
While it is widely understood that possession of alcohol by a minor is illegal, it is not uncommon for cities to exploit these charges to generate income. A conviction could have a negative impact on a minor’s education and employability.
As a parent, you are likely very concerned about your child’s well-being while at college, whether on or off campus. It is essential that you hire an attorney who feels the same. At Assalone & Associates, LLC, our lawyer has more than 27 years of experience helping individuals and their families as they navigate the complexities associated with criminal law.
If your child was charged with possession of alcohol by a minor, you could face three different courts – municipal court, district court and, if a car was involved, the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal. If this is a repeat offense, your child could face jail time. Juggling these three branches of government is extremely complex. One slip-up could jeopardize your case.
Attorney Veronica Assalone has a proven track record of winning cases for her clients in both criminal law and family law. Former clients have said, “She is an exceptional lawyer with her clients’ best interests at heart,” and, “She has given me my life back.”
She is committed to carefully examining the circumstances surrounding your situation. She will determine if law enforcement followed proper procedure while minding your rights. Attorney Assalone is well-known in the Rhode Island community for her work as both an aggressive and compassionate attorney. She cares deeply for her clients and will stop at nothing to obtain the best outcome possible.

A Sense of Belonging
We treat all of our clients with compassion, dignity, and respect. With our team approach, we really are all in this together and our clients experience the extraordinary difference and benefits of our unique approach to practicing law.
At most law firms, one lawyer will show up to represent you if your case goes to trial. With our team of lawyers, you get the entire team, as needed, for the cost of one lawyer. This provides excellent representation as well as a strong sense of support.
Because our attorneys each have unique backgrounds and skills, our team approach helps us make sure that every facet of your case is considered and covered. We also get to know you and your unique needs to build a case that meets your goals.
With most firms, one attorney will handle every aspect of your case, even the small things that could be handled much more efficiently by a junior lawyer or paralegal. We use the least expensive resources needed to get the job done and we pass these savings on to our clients.
