Out Of Denver DUI

If you are arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) in Colorado and you are not a resident of the state, you can still face serious consequences both in Colorado and in your home state, as Colorado — like most other states — participates in the Driver License Compact (an agreement in which states notify other states regarding license suspensions and traffic violations that their residents committed while out of state).

In such cases, the accused will be facing a complicated battle that will likely include court proceedings in Colorado and administrative dealings with their state's Division of Motor Vehicles (or the corresponding state agency).

Denver DUI Penalties For Out-Of-State Defendants

In most cases, the penalties for a Denver DUI conviction for out-of-state residents will be similar to those for Colorado residents — the primary difference being that some of the penalties will be carried out in Colorado while others will be carried out in the state of residency. Among the possible penalties that non-Colorado residents face for DUI conviction include (but may not be limited to):

  • Jail sentence
  • License suspension (This will be determined and governed by the state of residency, as the Colorado DMV cannot suspend licenses it has not issued.)
  • Community service and probation
  • Alcohol education classes
  • Marks on your criminal record
  • Non-court-ordered consequences such as loss of employment, increased insurance premiums and damage to your reputation

“ Fleschlaw rocks!!! ”

I had a DUI that I thought was bogus. I got Kevin and his staff on it right away. I never lost my license and he got the case dismissed at the motions hearing. Kevin told me what he thought would happen and he delivered. – John

“ Fleschlaw really helped me ”

I had two driving under suspension tickets pending. I thought for sure I was going to Jail. Kevin was able to help me understand the DMV process, get my driving privilege back and resolve the two tickets so I didn't go to Jail and I can drive again. Amazing... – Juan

“ Kevin can try a case!!!”

Kevin handled my criminal case. The DA would not make me any offers and so we went to trial. The trial took all day but Kevin made their star witness look incredible and a liar. The jury came back fast - not guilty. Kevin was great in trial!!! - Larry

“ Delighted!!! ”

I was very, very happy with the service I received from Kevin and delighted with the results. I certainly recommend Kevin to anyone that will need his type of service. I was looking at the possibility of losing my license and not only did I keep my license, but I still have points to spare! Delighted!!! - Marc

“ Fantastic Results ”

I got charged with a DUI and I didn't think the police officer should have contacted me to begin with. I knew I needed a lawyer to make the arguments for me. I interviewed several lawyers and felt comfortable with Kevin. He had to file motions and then have a hearing on the issue. His arguments were right on and the Judge granted my requests. The case was dismissed. – Wanda

“ Fleschlaw is the real deal ”

I was on probation for a DUI and I got another one. I freaked out and called Kevin. He calmed me down and worked for over 9 months and finally got my new case reduced to a reckless driving. I hate court but Kevin and his staff really worked hard and never gave up. In the end, Fleschlaw exceeded my expectations. – Derick

“ Real Lawyer that Fights for You ”

I looked around for a lawyer for a awhile. I met with Kevin and explained my case. We went to court and he got the case dismissed. He is the best. - Jimmy

“ Very good lawyer very good results ”

I was charged with DUI. I thought my life was over. Kevin met with me and really wanted to know what happened. After hearing how I was arrested, he thought the officer should not have contacted me. He was able to get my case dismissed. – Ron

“ Great Attorney ”

He was very helpful in my criminal case. He helped me stay out of jail. He is very friendly and I liked the people in his office. – Criminal Defense Client
