What Is an Underage DWI?
As you consider legal help, it’s a good idea to understand the implications of an underage DWI and its possible effect on your child’s future.
Per the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), if your child had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher (on a first offense), they could face:
- The loss of their driver’s license for at least 90 days
- 3 to 180 days in jail
- A fine of up to $2,000
These penalties only increase with subsequent offenses. What’s more, according to Texas Code of Criminal Procedure § 55.01, you cannot get a DWI expunged from your record. That means when your child applies for schools, jobs, and housing, the conviction will come up on a background check.

Your Coppell underage DWI attorney will:
Communicate With the Involved Parties on Your Behalf
Communication is key after getting arrested for a DWI. Even an innocuous comment could incriminate your child. To protect their rights, we handle all communications with those involved in your case, from law enforcement officials to courtroom clerks. This includes sending and answering all relevant phone calls, emails, and text messages.
Build and Bolster Your Case
To build the strongest possible case, your attorney will compile evidence, such as:
- Footage from the arresting officer’s body camera
- Results from the breath or blood alcohol test
- Statements from witnesses
- The arrest report
We implement a tailor-made strategy for every case we handle. The information we collect, along with the facts of your child’s case, will inform our next steps.
Implement a Solid Defense
To secure a “guilty” verdict, the prosecution must prove your child’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. So, our job is to poke holes in their argument or otherwise demonstrate your child’s innocence.

The Arresting Officer Didn’t Operate the Breathalyzer Properly

The Arresting Officer Did Not Have Probable Cause
The police can’t pull over people at random without a valid reason. They must have probable cause, a reason to suspect that someone was engaging in criminal activity. If we can successfully assert that the police did not have probable cause to pull your child over, we can argue for the case’s dismissal.
The Prosecution Doesn’t Have Enough Evidence
Prosecutors aim to get convictions, even in cases that don’t merit them. Yet, they need evidence. If the prosecutor can’t prove your child’s intoxication beyond a reasonable doubt, we can respond accordingly.
This isn’t an exhaustive list of defenses we may employ.
