Vermont DUI for Out of State Residents

Published by Jessica Burke on

At Burke Law we represent many out of state residents facing DUI charges in Vermont.

Vermont’s tourist industry brings out of state residents to sample craft beer, ski, hike and relax. Unfortunately, without sufficient public transportation options in place, it is easy for visitors or part-time Vermont residents to find themselves having one too many craft brews and driving home. Winter weather, over zealous DUI enforcement, and car trouble can all lead to unwanted interactions with law enforcement after consuming alcohol.

For most misdemeanor DUIs an experienced Vermont DUI attorney can waive an out of state resident’s appearance at arraignment to alleviate the stress and inconvenience of having to fly or drive back to Vermont for court. Waiving your appearance at arraignment will not negatively impact your case. Depending on the specifics of the case, we can often avoid the need for out of state clients to return to Vermont at all.

Throughout the last decade Burke Law attorneys have successfully defended out of state residents from Connecticut, Colorado, New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island, Delaware, Michigan, California, Kentucky, Virginia, Oregon, Washington, Florida, Texas, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Georgia, North Carolina, Arizona, New Mexico, and many others. If you are an out-of-state resident facing a DUI charge in Vermont you may be subject to different license suspensions. If you are an out of state resident facing a DUI in Vermont, it is important to contact an experienced Vermont DUI lawyer as soon as possible if you are cited with criminal or civil DUI in Vermont.
