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.

    I was charged with 2 felony cases (DWI & Evading) and my life had just turned upside down. I was looking to hire the best attorney in Brazoria County and everyone I talked to said Steve Gonzalez was the best. Through his hard work and persistence, he was able to prove my innocence. I wouldn't want my life in anyone else's hand except his.

    I am extremely grateful that Mr. Gonzalez represented me in my case. From the very beginning, he was very communicative and made me feel at ease. His legal assistants were also very kind and helpful throughout the process. He is a highly respected attorney whose reputation and expertise are phenomenal.

    "Could not have been better"
    Was arrested twice in a very short period for invalid license. I was unaware how seriously Brazoria County takes the charge. I was looking at a class A misdemeanor for the second offense and the state had not filed the first. I thought the best possible outcome could be time served and awaiting first offense but Mr Gonzalez got the second offense dropped to a Class C misdemeanor with $100 fine and no filing of the first case I had not even considered that possible in the outcome could not have been better.

    "Phenomenal Lawyers!"
    I cannot stress enough how highly I recommend this law firm. Recently, I found myself in a challenging situation with a DWI and unlawfully carrying weapon case. However, with the expertise and support of Kristina King, I was able to prove my innocence and have the cases dismissed. During the entire process, Kristina was an exceptional guide. She provided me with invaluable assistance, was incredibly informative, and showcased her extensive knowledge in the field. I genuinely cannot thank her enough for all her hard work. Even though most of my interaction was with Kristina, I must say, Steve and Kristina make an excellent team. I can confidently say that Steve and his associates are highly regarded as the best lawyers. I feel truly fortunate to have had such an amazing team on my side, and I will forever be grateful to the law office of Steve O. Gonzalez. Thank you!
