Out Of State Drivers
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.

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.
