DWI Representation For Out-Of-State Residents
If you have been pulled over and arrested for a DWI in Texas, but are a resident of another state, it is important to have local representation. A DWI conviction will carry criminal penalties and a suspension of your driving privileges in Texas, and it will also be reported to your home state. Your home state may also suspend your license and enforce its own penalties that are in accordance with its specific DWI or DUI laws.
At the Rosales Law Firm, we represent individuals charged with DUI/DWI offenses in the state of Texas, including drivers who are from out of state. Our experienced criminal defense lawyers have successfully defended clients throughout the United States who have been arrested in El Paso and the surrounding communities of Texas.

In Texas, you only have a limited amount of time to contact the Department of Public Safety to schedule an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing. This ALR hearing concerns the suspension of your driver’s license. While Texas law enforcement officials cannot confiscate the license of an out-of-state driver, they can suspend or revoke driving privileges in the state, and report that suspension to your home state.
Additionally, your insurance rates are still likely to be impacted, even for an out-of-state DWI/DUI. The inconvenience, travel time and expense need to be also considered when handling an out-of-state offense. Our firm can communicate with you via phone and e-mail to reduce your travel expenses.
