Underage DWI Over 20 Years of Result-Oriented Criminal Defense 

Walker County DWI Lawyer Fighting Underage DWI

Walker County DUI Charges

DWI lawyer Douglas W. Atkinson offers a free consultation if you or someone you know has been arrested for an underage DWI or DUI in Walker County or the surrounding areas in Texas.

Slightly different laws and procedures apply to an underage driver arrested for DWI in Walker County. When a driver is under the age of 21 and is arrested for drunk driving, he/she may face DWI (driving while intoxicated) or DUI (driving under the influence) charges. The difference in whether a minor will be charged with DWI or DUI will be determined by his/her blood alcohol concentration - whether below .08%, or at .08% or greater.

DWI Defense Attorney for Walker County, Texas

Driving under the influence of alcohol by a minor is a specific criminal offense which occurs when a minor operates a motor vehicle with any detectable amount of alcohol in his/her blood. This means that even a blood alcohol concentration of .01% or less could result in a Walker County DUI arrest.

As an experienced criminal defense attorney, Doug Atkinson has the know-how and dedication needed to defend a minor who is facing DUI charges in or around Dodge, Riverside, New Waverly or Huntsville, Texas. Throughout Walker County, attorney Atkinson and his staff provide aggressive defense for minors who have been arrested for DUI.

Under 21 DWI Attorney

A driver under 21 may be charged with DWI if his/her blood alcohol concentration is .08% or higher. If this is the case, he/she will face the same consequences as a driver over the age of 21 would face. This means possible jail time, driver’s license suspension, fines and fees, community service, probation and much more.

If you or a loved one has been arrested for an underage DWI or DUI offense, act quickly in contacting a DWI lawyer. A skilled lawyer can offer aggressive, effective legal counsel not only through the criminal court process, but also at your ALR hearing or DPS hearing. A defense lawyer can also work to help you get an occupational driver’s license, so you can still drive to and from work and school. Whether you have been accused of refusing or failing breath or blood tests, or if you failed field sobriety tests, having a skilled lawyer on your side will make all the difference in the outcome of your case.
