It is important to work with an attorney who can effectively handle your case. At Hopkins Law Firm we understand that bad things happen to good people. Unlike law enforcement and the courts, we know mistakes happen.

Refusal To Take A Breathalyzer

It is important to note that it is legal to refuse a Breathalyzer test, however, if you refuse the police can and usually do obtain a warrant to draw your blood. If this was your situation, our firm will investigate and uncover the following questions:

  • Did the arresting officer have the sufficient cause to perform your stop?
  • Did the police officer properly administer the breath test if you did allow it?
  • Did the police officer perform the field sobriety tests?
  • Did the police officer violate any of your constitutional rights before and during the stop?

In addition to handling criminal charges, we represent clients or people accused of DUI/DWI with the suspension of their license hearings and other violations.
