I was out of state when I recieved an OUI (failed breathalyzer). The charges where ammended to what amounts to a wreckless op. My liscence in the other state was suspended for 1 year. The 1 year suspension ran through in the other state and ended 9 months ago (case completely resolved in other state). Massachusetts never found out about the suspension, I never recieved any ramifications in Mass. My record on the NDR "should" now be closed. If I move out of state what are the chances my new home state will have a problem licensing me? What are the chances all this could flag Massachusetts to come back after me?
Usually you have to file paperwork with the DMV where your dui occurred to inform them you live out of state. That...

I am a Massachusetts resident charged with a DUI in Virginia. If I am convicted of a DUI in Virginia, hire an attorney in VA, and serve all the penalties the VA judge issues, should I then hire a Massachusetts attorney to try and mitigate the penalties I'll face in Massachusetts?

It is hard to answer your question without more specific information. If you plan on living in Massachusetts, I...
