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.

Will My California DUI Impact My License at Home?

The Interstate Driver’s License Compact is an agreement in which 45 states, including California, share information about DUI arrests, convictions, and other serious driving offenses. While the laws in your state may vary, your California DUI will most likely at least appear on your driving record in your home state.

The only states that are not included in this agreement are:

  • Georgia
  • Tennessee
  • Michigan
  • Wisconsin
  • Massachusetts

Do I Have to Travel to California For Court?

Unless you are facing felony DUI charges, you will most likely not need to personally appear in court. However, you will still need an experienced Ventura DUI attorney to appear on your behalf at all hearings. Unfortunately, for most felony charges you will need to be present.

We will handle as much of the process as possible on your behalf, including court appearances and filing all the necessary paperwork.
