Montgomery County Underage DWI Attorney

What is the difference between DUI & DWI in Texas?

A driver who is under the age of 21 (the legal drinking age in Texas) may not operate a motor vehicle while intoxicated. The law regarding underage drivers is different than the law for older drivers. For instance, there are actually two separate charges which a minor may face in conjunction with drunk driving: driving under the influence of alcohol by a minor (DUI) and driving while intoxicated (DWI).

If you or someone you know is facing under 21 DWI or DUI charges in Montgomery County, attorney Doug Atkinson may be able to help. Since 1998, his dedication and hard work in this area of practice have enabled attorney Atkinson to help a number of underage drivers who were arrested for and charged with DUI or DWI. In these cases, the driver may be facing a number of harsh penalties. As a Montgomery County DWI lawyer, Doug Atkinson provides only the best representation for his clients.

Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol by a Minor

Driving under the influence of alcohol by a minor, or DUI, is a charge that only relates to drivers who are under 21 years old. Under this law, an underage driver may not operate a motor vehicle with any detectable amount of alcohol in his/her system. This is covered under Zero Tolerance Laws in Texas. Montgomery County DWI lawyer Doug Atkinson is familiar with helping clients who are facing under 21 DUI charges, and works hard to help them avoid the penalties associated with this offense.

Fighting Your Underage DWI Charges in Montgomery County, TX

A minor may also face typical DWI (driving while intoxicated) charges as outlined in Texas law. Under DWI law, a minor who has a blood alcohol level of .08% or greater, or whose mental or physical abilities are impaired, may face DWI charges. The penalties for a Montgomery County Underage DWI conviction are the same as a conviction an adult would face. This includes license suspension, fines, court fees, jail time, and more.
