The Woodlands Underage DUI Defense Lawyers
Texas Underage DUI Laws
In Texas, driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol is illegal and considered a very serious offense. Section 106.041 of Texas’ Alcoholic Beverage Code orders that no one under the age of 21 should have any alcohol in their system when behind the wheel, and if charged the consequences for minors – as well as their parents – can be extremely severe.
If you or your child face such charges, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer who successfully defends against underage DUI cases. With more than 50 years of combined experience, The Woodlands underage DUI defense attorneys at Morgan Bourque Attorney at Law want to challenge your child’s drunk or drugged driving charge.

Insurance rate hikes
