Out of State DUI Defense Attorney in Tampa
We Know the Florida Court System
When driving in Florida, all of Florida's traffic laws apply to you. Therefore, an infraction can be punishable by Florida law. If you were issued a traffic ticket or had your license suspended in the state of Florida, then it will be considered suspended in all states. Because the violation occurred in a state that is not your home state, it may pose an inconvenience to you to deal with the court hearings. Hiring an attorney who is unfamiliar with Florida traffic laws may not be the best option.

at the court hearings. Trust a legal team that is familiar with the Florida court systems. We have helped thousands of clients find positive solutions to their legal issues. When it comes to fighting the

How does a DUI carry over state lines?
A Non-Resident Violator Compact allows participating states to carry out traffic citations and DUIs across state borders. Individuals who fail to fulfill their duties outlined by a traffic ticket, including DUI arrest penalties, cannot escape these penalties simply by returning to their home state. For example, if an individual was arrested for DUI in Florida and later returned to Georgia, the punishments of the arrest and potential conviction may be carried over from Florida and enforced in Georgia. Crossing state lines does not protect you from the consequences.
An Out of State DUI can Cause Many Problems
A DUI charge can be a difficult thing to face, a conviction can be a very difficult reality to live with.
A conviction on your record can cause you to lose your job; it can prevent you from acquiring work elsewhere, and it can follow you on your record from state-to-state, causing problems for you throughout your travels. It could prevent you from renewing your driver's license in another state, and it could greatly increase your auto-insurance premiums.
There are many road laws throughout the different states, and for someone who travels a lot, whether by aircraft, or driving, a conviction on your record in one state can mean major problems for you in other states. It is important to know that there is no evidence compiled against you that cannot be fought by Parks & Braxton, PA. You have the right to a fair trial as well as the right to an attorney. It is vital that you take advantage of your rights and pursue the best outcome.
