Out-of-State Driver DUI
If you have been pulled over and arrested for a DWI/DUI in El Paso, Texas,
but are a resident of another state, it is important to have local representation.
A DUI/DWI conviction will carry criminal penalties and a suspension of
your driving privileges in Texas, and 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 Law Offices of Ruben Ortiz, we represent individuals charged with
DUI/DWI offenses in the state of Texas, including drivers who are from
out of state. Attorney Ruben Ortiz is a highly experienced criminal defense
lawyer who has successfully defended clients from throughout the United
States who have been arrested in El Paso and the surrounding communities of Texas.

Experienced El Paso DWI/DUI Defense Lawyer
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. Lawyer
Ruben Ortiz has the experience to provide helpful legal representation
for your drunk driving charges.
Fighting a DWI/DUI charge can keep your criminal record clean and prevent
you from dealing with hefty fines and other penalties.
