Charged with DUI while visiting Colorado? Get counsel!
Are you an out-of-state resident who was arrested for DUI while visiting
Colorado? If so, it's important to seek the representation of an experienced
Denver DUI lawyer that knows how to represent individuals from surrounding
states. Even though you are not a resident of Colorado, it's important
to take your DUI charges seriously, as you will still be required to go
to court and address your charges in this state.
As a certified DUI specialist, Attorney Chris Cessna can provide you with
the stalwart legal defense you need to beat your charges. He has been
exclusively practicing DUI law for the past 20 years, enabling to handle
even the toughest and most complex cases.
Out-of-State vs. In-State DUI
Colorado law treats non-resident DUI defendants differently than it does
in-state defendants. Without a legal representative, you could face serious
penalties in both Colorado and your home state. Keep in mind, if you do
not contact an attorney within seven days of your arrest, you could forfeit
numerous advantages and rights, especially in regards to your ability
to drive. Your home state will be alerted of your case and will likely
enforce the same penalties.
After receiving an out of state DUI, you can expect:
- Summons notifying you of the charges being brought against you
- Confiscation of your driver's license and issuance of an "Affidavit
and Notice of Revocation"
- License suspension in Colorado and your home state
- Having your license placed on hold with the National Drivers Registry if
you do not act
- Potential arrest warrant if you do not show up to trial dates
The best way to avoid these penalties is by contacting an experienced DUI
lawyer in Denver who knows how to properly defend out-of-state drivers.
Not only will you be facing these initial repercussions, but you will
also need to defend your case so you do not incur even harsher criminal
