I was arrested for a dwi about ten years ago and I can't remember if it was reduced to a dwai? I was nineteen it was my first offense and I was pretty much done with court I one or two times going. From your experience how many judges in the past wouldn't have reduced that to a dwai and gave a dwi
For an underage, a DWAI was harder to get. Make it simple and check with the clerk of the Court as to the disposition of your case.

You cannot call the court, they will not give out that information over the phone. Your lawyer shouldn't be bothered to look up a 10 year old file for free, and they only keep files for 7 years mostly as that is who long the bar association makes them keep them. You can go to the clerk of the court and get a Certificate of Disposition or ask her to look it up and tell you if you do not need the proof in writing.
