Hudson Valley DWI & DWAI Attorney At the Law Office of Kelley M. Enderley, You Are Our Priority

Poughkeepsie Breathalyzer Test Refusal Lawyer

After being stopped for a DWI, you will be faced with a tough decision: Do you take the Breathalyzer test or do you refuse to blow? On the one hand, if you take the test, you may be providing evidence that will be used against you. On the other hand, you will likely have your driver's license suspended simply for refusing to take the breath test.

Unfortunately, you will not be allowed to discuss the options with a Poughkeepsie Breathalyzer test refusal attorney before you make the choice. You will have to take all factors into consideration. For example, if you had a child in the car and might be subject to a felony DWI charge under Leandra's Law, it may be better not to blow. However, if you truly did not have much to drink and believe the test will prove it, blowing may be a good idea.

Regardless of the choice you make, you should contact an experienced trial lawyer at The Law Office of Kelley M. Enderley, PC as soon as possible to determine your next steps.

If You Did Blow

People often think that there is no way to fight a New York DWI charge if breath test results show blood alcohol content (BAC) above .08. That is not the case. There may be flaws in terms of how the stop was conducted. Were you pulled over because you had your high beams on, with no probable cause for a drunk driving stop? Was the Breathalyzer test properly administered? We will find weaknesses in the case against you. Even if there are none, there still may be options, particularly for first time offenders.

If You Refused To Blow

If you did not submit to the breath test, you will face a refusal hearing. We will represent you at that hearing. These are challenging, but we understand the steps that can be taken to pursue a positive outcome. Whether you refused the Breathalyzer test or the field sobriety tests, you can be confident with us on your side.
