What is a Virginia Beach Out of State DUI Attorney?

A Virginia Beach Out of State DUI Attorney specializes in defending drivers arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) who are not residents of Virginia. They understand the unique challenges faced by out-of-state drivers and can navigate the Virginia court system to fight your charges and protect your driving privileges in both Virginia and your home state.

Virginia DUI Laws for Out-of-State Drivers

Virginia has strict DUI laws that apply to all drivers, including those from out of state. The Commonwealth of Virginia lists drinking and driving as a Class I misdemeanor. A first-time DUI conviction can result in:

  • A minimum $250 fine
  • One-year driver's license suspension
  • Required alcohol safety education courses

Out-Of-State Impact: It Follows You Home

A drunk driving arrest will follow you home, as well as any related offense, such as reckless driving. The team at JRLaw, PLC is available to speak with you about the case after hours or on Saturdays, because we are passionate about defending the rights of our clients.

Even if you don't live in Virginia, a DUI conviction here will be reported to your home state's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) through the Driver License Compact (DLC). This can lead to:

  • Suspension or revocation of your driver's license in your home state
  • Increased auto insurance rates
  • Difficulty renting a car
  • Out of state DUI will count as a prior offense in case you are arrested for a 2nd time in the future

The same is true for Virginia drivers who are convicted in another state. The department of motor vehicles will report your infraction to the Virginia DMV, and you will be subject to DWI penalties in our state.

It is in your best interests to work with a out of state DUI lawyer in Virginia Beach who can help you fight the charges and preserve your driver’s license.
