Driving While Intoxicated and Driving Under the Influence Charges

While DWI and DUI charges are often used interchangeably, Texas law distinguishes between the two. Driving while intoxicated is a charge assessed by a person’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) or physical impairment based on drink or drug consumption. A BAC of 0.08% or more will result in a DWI for a person of any age. For commercial drivers, the BAC is 0.04% or more.

Driving under the influence is reserved for minors under the age of 21. Texas law actually prohibits anyone under age 21 from operating a vehicle after drinking any amount of alcohol. If a minor has any detectable alcohol below 0.08% in their system, they can receive a lesser charge of DUI.

Our DWI/DUI Legal Process

Penalties for DWI/DUI charges can vary considerably depending on age, level of BAC and previous violations. Convictions could involve driver’s license suspension, fines, community work and prison sentences for repeat offenders. With serious consequences for a conviction, it is important to work with a criminal law attorney with experience in DWI/DUI cases. Here is what you can expect from our attorneys at Lucé Law, PC.

  • Dedicated representation – Support and guidance from the arrest to any plea bargains, trials and future repercussions.
  • Challenge license suspension – We will fight to prevent an automatic license suspension within the 15-day deadline.
