Celebrating Graduation Safely: A Reminder from Your Friends at JinksCrow

As graduation season approaches, we can feel the excitement in the air as students prepare to finish the school year, celebrate their academic achievements, and look forward to the future. Our office is celebrating two graduations this year with Christy’s son and Jodi’s daughter both graduating from high school, so this made us want to send out a special reminder.

Amidst the festivities, it's crucial to remember the potential dangers associated with excessive alcohol or drug use during these celebrations. As your local lawyers, we want to congratulate our graduates and their families, but also encourage everyone to make responsible choices to safeguard their well-being.


The allure of parties and revelry can sometimes lead to risky behaviors. Excessive alcohol consumption can impair judgment and increase the likelihood of accidents, injuries, and legal troubles. As you make plans for celebrating graduation safely, we suggest consideration of the following:


First, make sure everyone has a plan in place for getting home safely.

Whether it's arranging for a designated driver, using ride-sharing services, or staying overnight at a friend's house, ensure that transportation is organized before the festivities begin.


Next, know your limits when it comes to alcohol consumption.

Pace yourself, alternate between alcoholic beverages and water, and avoid peer pressure to drink excessively.


Additionally, keep an eye out for your friends and fellow graduates.

Look out for signs of intoxication or vulnerability and intervene if someone appears to be in need of assistance.


Above all, never drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Not only is it illegal, but it also endangers your life and the lives of others on the road. If you've been drinking, hand over your keys to a sober friend, call a friend or family member, or utilize alternative transportation options.

As your attorneys, we want you to celebrate your accomplishments safely and responsibly. By making responsible choices and looking out for one another, you can ensure that your graduation celebrations are memorable for all the right reasons. Congratulations on this significant milestone, and here's to a bright and promising future ahead.
