Houston Criminal Defense Attorney

Houston Under 21 DWI Attorney

Drunk Driving Defense for Underage Drivers in TX

If you are a minor who has been arrested for DWI, or a parent whose child has been arrested, the stakes are very high. Underage drivers who are caught operating a motor vehicle with any amount of alcohol in their systems face stiff license suspension penalties, fines, and the possibility of a permanent criminal record. If you are serious about defending yourself or your child against these charges, enlist the help of a qualified DWI attorney.

Representing clients in Houston and across Harris County, Texas, we at the Law Offices of Jed Silverman may be able to help you in your time of need. We are aggressive litigators and skilled negotiators who fight for drivers’ rights in the face of misdemeanor and felony DWI charges.

What Penalties May Be Imposed for Underage DWI?

In cases involving drivers under the age of 21, blood alcohol concentration (BAC) restrictions are much lower than for adults of legal drinking age. If you are under 21 years of age and caught with even a trace of alcohol in your system while operating a motor vehicle (as opposed to the .08% BAC limit imposed on adults), you may face a Class C misdemeanor, carrying with it such penalties as:

  • Up to $500 fine
  • 90-day driver's license suspension

In addition, your future employment and educational activities may be seriously hampered by the black mark of a criminal conviction on your record. Houston DWI lawyer Jed Silverman and our dedicated staff are adept at defending underage drivers across Texas against minors in possession (MIP) charges and other first-time offenses. We put our skill and experience to work for our clients to seek a dismissal of all charges and a clean criminal record.

Take this opportunity to secure the legal counsel of a firm that truly recognizes the importance of a strategic defense in the face of underage DWI charges. Contact the Law Offices of Jed Silverman today at (713) 597-2221.
