Learn how to answer matters based on breath test refusal

We recently discussed your rights for handling a request from a law enforcement officer to get a sample for a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test. This provided you with some very important information. In a nutshell, you have the right to refuse to take a breath test, but that refusal comes with consequences. Sadly, the consequences of refusal apply even if it comes to light that you weren't intoxicated.

We know that this might not seem fair. We are here to help you determine what options you have for handling the consequences you might face for refusal. You don't have to try to get through it all by yourself.

Some aspects of dealing with the penalties are time sensitive. Administrative penalties, for example, have very strict deadlines for filing for appeals and hearings. Many of these are very short. You don't have time to waste on these cases. Instead, you need to get started on your defense right away so that you can have time to consider your options.

As far as the criminal charges you might be facing, you have to learn about the choices you have for these. The options can vary from one case to another. One big factor is whether you have any prior charges or not. If you do have prior charges, your options might be limited.

You might end up deciding to go to trial over your drunk driving charges and any criminal matters related to the charge. We can prepare your defense and get it ready to go before the jury. Since these things take time, get things moving right away.
