If son was arrested in Kansas for a DUI but we reside in Colorado which State should I retain my Attorney from?
2 Answers from Attorneys
You need an attonrey thqat is licensed to practice in Kansas. If you can find such a person, who has an office near where you live in Colorado, that would probably best most convenient for you. You would be wasting your money to hire an attorney who is not licensed to practice in Kansas.
You must hire a Kansas licensed attorney to represent your son in Kansas. However, you might want to consult a Colorado attorney to see how the Kansas charges may affect your son's driving record. In any event, you should hire an attorney soon, as your son must request an administrative hearing promptly to preserve his rights.
Feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions.
