Out of State DWI Lawyer in Montgomery County, TX

Arrested for drunk driving while visiting Texas?

If you are an out of state driver, and you have been arrested for DWI (driving while intoxicated) in Texas, you will need local representation by an experienced attorney in order to have the chance of avoiding a conviction and criminal penalties as well as driving privilege suspension/revocation. A DWI conviction in Texas can, and most likely will, affect your driving privileges in your home state.

Out of state DWI is an area of practice that Doug Atkinson is very familiar with. These cases can be complex, and additional problems may arise due to the fact that the defendant resides in another state. However, attorney Atkinson understands how to deal with these issues to the best of his ability in order to help his client experience the least amount of trouble and travel in relation to his/her DWI charges.

Travelling may be an extreme hardship if you reside in another state and have been arrested for and charged with DWI in Texas. You may need to return to your home state, and you may be unable to travel back to Texas for certain proceedings. DWI defense lawyer Doug Atkinson will do whatever he can to help ensure that you do not have to be present for certain proceedings (which is often possible for misdemeanor DWI charges). If your presence is necessary, by providing aggressive DWI defense, attorney Atkinson will help to ensure it is worth your time.

Out of State DWI & Interstate Driver's License Compact

Texas is a member of the Interstate Driver's License Compact, wherein participating states share information regarding driving offenses with the drivers’ home states. For instance, if you are convicted of DWI in Texas but live in California, Texas will not only impose its own penalties for DWI, but it will report your conviction to California where home state penalties may be applied to your driver’s license. The only states not members of the Driver's License Compact are Wisconsin, Tennessee, Georgia, Massachusetts and Michigan.
