Orange County Out of State DUI Attorney

When a driver carries a license from another state and is charged with DUI (driving under the influence) in California, there are a number of complications that will need to be addressed by a skilled and experienced DUI attorney. If you or someone close to you is faced with this situation, you should know that you are at risk of losing your driving privileges in both California and your home state if you are convicted of drunk driving.

If you want to protect your driving privileges in both places, you will need to hire a lawyer who is experienced handling out of state DUI offenses.

Drivers who hold licenses from other states undergo the same process as California license holders, and will need a lawyer to handle both the criminal proceeding and the DMV hearing. The criminal proceeding will determine whether or not they are guilty of drunk driving, and the hearing with the California Department of Motor Vehicles will concern the suspension of their driving privileges.

DUI Lawyer Helping Out of State Drivers in Irvine

Whether or not a person loses their driving privileges in their home state will depend on if that particular state is a member of the Interstate Driver's License Compact. An agreement between 45 states, this compact allows the states to communicate with one another about driving related crimes like DUI.

This means all states in the compact will notify other states if a driver is convicted of DUI so that the home state can take proper action to suspend the driver's license. If you are an out of state driver who has recently been charged with DUI, you need to take action quickly to protect your driving privileges in your home state.

Our firm will fight hard on your behalf and guide you through the criminal process keeping your best interests in mind. Learn more about out of state DUI offenses by contacting a DUI attorney at the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry today.
