Experienced And Compassionate DUI/OVI Attorney
Being an American citizen enables you to travel easily to any state in the country. However, if you are charged with any crime in any state, you will be subject to the laws and regulations of that particular state you are facing charges in. For those individuals who are visiting Ohio from another state, the laws regarding driving under the influence (DUI) remain valid.
If you are from another state and have been charged with a DUI in Ohio, we understand your time and money are both important and restricted. Our West Chester DUI lawyers can assist in properly navigating through the state’s legal system and advise you on the proper state protocol in order to help you resolve this issue for good.
Consequences For Out-Of-State Drivers
Despite living out-of-state, it’s mandatory to make a court date within 5 days from your arrest in Ohio. Without representation from a defense attorney, you are required to attend all court dates thereafter in person. If you retain legal counsel in Ohio, our experienced legal team at Meadows Law Firm will attend all the necessary court dates, both in criminal court and before the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles court, on your behalf.
The Driver License Compact (DLC) is an interstate agreement instituted by almost all states in order to exchange information concerning license suspensions and traffic violations of non-residents and send them to the state where they are licensed. The home state would then treat the offense as if it had been committed there, applying familiar state laws to out-of-state offense. The only states that are not associated with this national compact are Georgia Massachusetts, Michigan, Tennessee, and Wisconsin.
