OWI/DUI Defense for Out-of-State Drivers

Handle Your Traffic Ticket Complications from Home

Iowa City is a college town, home to thousands of out-of-state students, and the Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, and Nebraska borders are only a short drive away. As a result, many drivers charged with OWI/DUI in Eastern Iowa do not have Iowa driver's licenses. Out-of-state drivers face many of the same consequences of OWI/DUI as Iowa drivers and, depending on the laws of your home state, you may also face penalties at home. Navigating the requirements of various jurisdictions can be confusing, but our attorneys at Keegan, Tindal & Jaeger have experience representing out-of-state drivers.

To learn more about OWI/DUI defenses for out-of-state drivers, contact our team at (319) 499-5524 or reach out to us online to schedule your free initial consultation.

How We Can Help Defend Your Driving Privileges

While we are not licensed to practice in surrounding states, Keegan, Tindal & Jaeger understands the pitfalls of receiving an Iowa OWI/DUI when your license is from Illinois or another neighboring state. Our firm has helped many out-of-state clients fight OWI/DUI charges while minimizing the need for clients to travel to Iowa for court appearances and other appointments. Additionally, Attorney J. Dean Keegan's membership in the National College of Drunk Driving Defense provides access to skilled OWI/DUI attorneys across the country.

OWI/DUIs Affect Your Ability to Work & Study

The state of Iowa does not have the authority to revoke your out-of-state driver's license, but it can revoke your nonresident operating privileges, which is a serious issue if you are a student living in Iowa or must travel to Iowa for business. Your driving privileges will not be reinstated until you have met all of the court's requirements, including paying fines or surcharges. This is why an effective OWI/DUI defense lawyer is so important for out-of-state drivers.
