A DWI defense lawyer can help you make a new start
Underage drinking in Texas – and many states – carries severe penalties if you are pulled over for DWI. Texas's zero tolerance policy means anyone under 21 who has even trace amounts of alcohol in his or her system can be prosecuted. An underage DWI conviction is considered a Class C misdemeanor in Texas. There are harsh consequences for being a minor arrested for drunk driving: a possible 90-day license suspension, $500 fine, community service and mandatory attendance in an alcohol awareness class.
Texas DWI defense lawyer Joseph LaBella understands how difficult a DWI can be for anyone. A DWI conviction can stand in the way of getting into certain colleges or obtaining some desired jobs or other employment positions.
As an experienced Houston Area attorney, Joe knows that promising young people can make mistakes, but they deserve a second chance. He also knows that a young person arrested for underage DWI in Texas might not be treated fairly by the authorities. There may be factors in the case that could lead to a dismissal or a lesser charge.
