Washington DUI Lawyer for Out-Of-State Drivers

Arrested for DUI in Washington While Residing in Another State?

Being charged with driving under the influence in Washington State if you ordinarily reside in another state presents a complicated situation. Not only will you be subject to penalties in Washington State, you may face certain additional penalties in your home state. You may also be required to be present in Washington for certain proceedings.

Unless you are from Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, Tennessee, or Wisconsin, your state is part of the Driver License Compact. This is an agreement whereby participating states share information regarding driving offenses with the authorities in the home state of the individual who has been charged. This means that a DUI in Washington will be on file in your home state, where further actions may be taken against you. Usually, this is in regards to your driver's license but depends on the laws of the specific state.

If you are facing this serious and frustrating situation, you require the services of an attorney who is experienced in such matters. Our DUI law firm in Lynnwood has represented countless clients with great success since 2003.
