Federal vs. State DUI/DWI Laws-What's the Difference?

If our clients are feeling lost in the complex world of DUI laws, they're not alone. The discrepancies between federal and state jurisdictions can be puzzling. Here's what you need to know:

When it comes to drinking and driving, most charges and convictions happen at the state level. However, there are certain circumstances where federal DUI laws apply. Federal law is enforced when an offense takes place on federal property, like national parks or military bases. Penalties under federal law can be severe, and it's crucial to have an expert on your side.

Our seasoned lawyers have ample experience with these federal cases. They're ready to navigate through the complexities and advocate for your defense. While it can feel overwhelming, rest assured that we're here to guide you every step of the way.

Federal DUI charges typically occur in areas under federal jurisdiction. This includes locations such as national parks, government buildings, and federal roadways. The alleged offense is prosecuted according to federal regulations, which may differ from your home state's laws.

These charges have their own set of legal processes and consequences, often involving federal courts and the United States Attorney's Office. Our attorneys have the necessary experience to confidently handle these cases.

The penalties for a federal DUI can be harsh and are usually similar to the state where the offense occurred. Fines, imprisonment, and a mark on your criminal record are possible outcomes. Legal representation is essential to minimize these penalties or potentially dismiss the charge altogether.
