Out of State DUI

Charged with DUI While Visiting Florida?

Call Us for Help with Your Out-of-State DUI Charges

Since Florida is a popular tourist destination, many people find themselves facing out-of-state DUI charges. As we all know, vacations often include parties, and parties often include alcohol. With this mix, your vacation can easily turn into a headache if you are charged with driving under the influence. It is important for you to know that you can still get help from a Florida DUI lawyer even if you are not a resident of the state.

It doesn't matter what state you live in – if you are charged with DUI in Florida, the state of Florida will be the one imposing fines and other penalties. This is why you need a local DUI attorney in a situation like this. With any charges you are facing, you must remember that these should never be equated with a conviction. Your case is not hopeless, and a competent attorney can get your penalties lessened or even dropped.

The Fort Lauderdale DUI attorneys at Parks & Braxton, PA are available 24/7. If you have been charged with an out-of-state DUI, call us now for a FREE consultation. You can reach us at (954) 519-2290.

I Was Arrested, But I Live in Another State – What Now?

If you were arrested for DUI while visiting the state of Florida, you will still need to show up to court to respond to your criminal charges—which means that you may need to travel back to Florida for your court date. Furthermore, if you are convicted of the charge, you may be sentenced to time in a Florida jail.

If you were previously convicted of DUI, either in your home state or elsewhere, you could face more serious charges. In Florida, repeat offenders face increased penalties—regardless of where the prior DUI occurred. Your home state will also be notified of, and expected to uphold, an imposed license suspension.

This is why you should call an experienced DUI lawyer as soon as you have been arrested. Even if you blew over the legal limit in a breathalyzer test or failed a series of field sobriety tests, you should not assume that your case is hopeless. Parks & Braxton, PA has successfully defended thousands of criminal cases.

After an arrest, you have options – some of which include:

  • Trying to get the DUI charge dropped
  • Taking your case to trial to fight a conviction
  • Plea bargaining to reduce the charge or penalties
  • Avoiding a conviction with pre-trial diversion
