Are You From Out Of State? Charged for a DUI in Tempe? Call Us

Non-Resident Charged with an Arizona DUI?

So, you were charged with a DUI in Arizona, but this is not where your home of record is located. It is imperative you understand the full implications of a DUI arrest in your home state. Not only can a DUI in Arizona result in jail time while you’re here, but it will follow you back home as well; you may as well have packed it with your things and taken it back with you.

The Rosenstein Law Group practices in every court in the Maricopa, Pinal, Coconino and Pima counties. We have provided a strong DUI defense to many people who’s residence lies in another state: Arizona State University students, military personnel aboard Luke Air Force Base, “snowbirds” and tourists, and many others.

Criminal and Collateral Impact of an Arizona DUI

We will handle every level drunk driving defense for our out-of-state clients, and we do the work to find out what impact your case may have outside of Arizona.

  • In Arizona, a conviction for a DUI includes a .08 BAC or “impairment to the slightest degree”, and is a Class 1 misdemeanor. This means that for anyone performing a background check on you, you share company with those convicted of assault and battery, forgery, fraud, or burglary.
  • Your state and local law enforcement will be able to see your DUI arrest records and conviction, as well as your auto insurer and state’s motor vehicle division. Usually, an Arizona conviction counts towards any habitual offender tracking or license suspension points in your home state.
