Out-of-State Drivers and DWI
If you were charged with a DUI in New Jersey, but you live in another state,
you need to enlist the help of our skilled legal team at the Law Offices
of Christopher L. Baxter. Even though you are arrested for a DUI in New
Jersey, this charge is likely to follow you back to your home state due
to the Driver License Compact (DLC). The DLC is an agreement between states
that allows the sharing of information regarding traffic violations and
license suspensions. What does this mean? This means that you could be
facing penalties both in New Jersey and in your home state. Our firm can
help you handle your out-of-state DUI case so you can move past this as
quickly and effectively as possible.
Take a look at New Jersey's
Does an Out-of-State Conviction Affect my New Jersey DWI?
Under certain circumstances, the New Jersey DUI / DWI statute permits the
use of out-of-state DUI convictions to be used for sentencing purposes
against you in any New Jersey court. Simply put, if you have a prior conviction
from your home state and are convicted of driving while intoxicated in
New Jersey, you could be considered a second offender depending on what
BAC standard your home state uses to define "driving under the influence."
Our office has represented many out-of-state drivers and can provide guidance
on the impact on your home state driver's license regarding a New
Jersey DUI conviction.
