DWI Attorney in Grimes County

Facing Out of State DWI Charges?

If you reside in another state and are pulled over and arrested for DWI in Grimes County, Texas, you will need a local lawyer on your side to defend your case. Out of state DWI cases can be complex, particularly due to the fact that the defendant may need to go back home. Travelling back to Texas for court proceedings can be a definite hardship.

That is why Grimes County DWI lawyer Doug Atkinson strives to provide aggressive DWI defense without his client’s presence at the ALR hearing and criminal court proceedings, whenever possible. He recognized the unique challenge that out of state DWI cases pose for a defense lawyer and a defendant, and as such he dedicates the necessary time and energy to the case in order to reach the best possible outcome.

DWI Lawyer Handling Out of State Charges

A driver who lives in another state and yet is arrested for DWI (driving while intoxicated) in Texas may face license suspension or revocation penalties not only in Texas but in his or her home state as well. Because the driver possesses a driver’s license from another state, the Texas DPS (Department of Public Safety) cannot suspend or revoke his license. The DPS can, however, suspend or revoke his or her driving privileges – his right to drive in Texas. Texas is also a member of the Interstate Driver’s License Compact, and this means that your DWI arrest and conviction may be reported to your home state, where the same driving suspension or revocation penalties will be imposed. This means that your home state license may be suspended or revoked in addition to your Texas driving privileges.

Out of state DWI charges are serious and should be addressed immediately by a skilled lawyer. Doug Atkinson has the experience and the aggressive defense strategies which will be necessary to help you avoid a conviction and the suspension of your driving privileges in Texas and in your home state.
