Underage DUI Fierce Representation Paired with Passionate Service

Underage DUI in Brazoria County, Texas

Talk with a Galveston DUI Attorney Today

Texas underage drinking laws are strictly enforced by both police and prosecutors. The drinking age in Texas is 21, so consumption of alcohol by any individual under the age of 21 is illegal unless the individual's legal guardian has given explicit consent.

Recent statistics have shown that drivers under the age of 21 account for 14% of DUI-related deaths and accidents in the state of Texas. This has led law enforcement to strictly crack down on all underage drivers, often make quick arrests on lacking evidence. If you have been wrongfully charged with underage DUI, be sure to seek legal protection right away. Whether your charges have been brought against you unfairly or you believe too harsh of penalties have been set down, our firm is here to help. With over 32 years of legal experience, Attorney Steve Gonzalez knows how to aggressively protect his clients and their legal rights.

Zero-Tolerance Laws & DUI Penalties

Texas is a zero-tolerance state that considers underage drinking to be a Class C misdemeanor. Underage drivers could be charged with a DUI for any blood alcohol content above 0.00%, considering it is illegal for them to possess alcohol. A class C misdemeanor is punishable by a fine up to $500 and a temporary license suspension.

This means those police officers only need to find a fraction of a percentage to bring a charge against you, leaving great room for error and misreading.

Even if you have no alcohol left in your body, an officer could still charge you with DUI if your breath smells of alcohol. If an underage driver is convicted of DUI, they could face short-term imprisonment, thousands of dollars in fines, and a license suspension for up to 90 days. If a second DUI conviction occurs within the next 10 years, the individual could face a full year in jail and nearly $4,000 in fines. On top of that, they could have their license suspended for a full year. With such strict penalties and enforcement of underage DUI, it is crucial that you speak with a Brazoria DUI lawyer about your charges right away. Our firm is here to offer the dedicated counsel and protection you deserve.

    Great law firm, excellent staff, very helpful ... I got a much better result than I thought possible, and so much faster. Way better than I have heard from other people in similar situations. I would hire these people again. Kristina King was the attorney that handled my case and she was excellent. Also the paralegal that fielded my questions, Isabela Juarez was very helpful, very professional, very responsive, and always available.
