Our Houston DWI Lawyers Represent Underage Drivers
Texas has a strict zero-tolerance policy when it comes to drunk driving under the age of 21. The charge you will face is slightly different as driving under the influence is the charge applied to individuals who have been caught driving with any detectable blood alcohol concentration (BAC) when under the legal drinking age. It doesn't matter if your BAC was 0.01 percent – if you are under the age of 21 and you had measurable alcohol in your body as stated by a breath or blood test, you will most likely face DUI charges.
If you or your child is facing a DUI charge in Texas, it is in your best interests to contact a Houston DWI lawyer as soon as possible. While you or your child will not face jail time, there are other harsh penalties that a DUI conviction will result in, such as fines and license suspension. Also, this record of DUI conviction will remain with you and if you are charged with
subsequent DWIs, your punishment will be enhanced.
