You should consult a Colorado attorney, since your license may be subject to revocation. I would be glad to discuss your options.

Colorado. If you can find an attorney licensed in both Massachusetts and Colorado, that may match your needs as well.

Actually, you will need to consult with both a Colorado DUI attorney as well as an attorney in Massachusetts who is familiar with DUI laws and the Interstate Compact. While the laws of Colorado will govern the criminal and DMV proceedings in Colorado, there can be significant consequences in Massachusetts. I would strongly advise, however, that you start with seeking the advice of a Colorado attorney in the city/county in which you were arrested.
