Out of State DUI Lawyer in Ventura
Call Our Skilled DUI Attorney at (805) 919-8662
From the sunny beaches and celebrities to the beautiful wine country and
skiing, there are plenty of reasons why hundreds of thousands of people
visit California each year. Unfortunately for many, their vacation or
business trips are sometimes ruined by a DUI arrest.
California has some of the strictest laws in the nation regarding DUI,
and any visitor to the state will face the same charges and penalties
as a permanent resident. The process, however, may differ somewhat. If
you live in another state, you’ll need a DUI lawyer who has extensive
familiarity with California DUI laws.
When you need tough, aggressive defense,
call our firm at (805) 919-8662.
At The Law Offices of Robert F. Sommers, our
Ventura DUI attorney has more than two decades of experience with California DUI cases. Our
firm has represented more than 4,000 DUI clients, many of whom were out-of-state visitors.
