Raleigh DWI Test Defense Lawyer

If a police officer pulls you over because of suspected drunk driving, he or she may subject you to a range of sobriety tests. It is important to understand your legal right to refuse to take any of these tests, the mistakes others can make while administering or evaluating the results of these tests, and the legal defenses available to you if you are charged with DWI.

If you or someone you know has been charged with drinking and driving after taking a DWI test, a knowledgeable Raleigh DWI test defense lawyer from the Law Office of Jim Black may be able to help you with your case. Contact our offices today by calling 919-600-4609 for more information.

Types of DWI Tests

If you are pulled over on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, you may be subjected to at least one of the following types of sobriety tests:

Police officers are required to adhere to a list of specific protocols when administering any of these tests. A field sobriety test must be performed in a safe environment, and the officer must ensure that the person has no physical handicaps. If he or she fails to adhere to these protocols, the case may be thrown out of court.

You do not have to submit to a chemical breath or blood test, although refusing to submit to a test will result in an automatic license suspension and a one-year revocation of your license. However, you can contest this revocation with the help of a Raleigh DWI test defense attorney.

If you or someone you know has been accused of DWI based on a field sobriety test, breathalyzer test, or blood test, or after the refusal of any of these tests, a qualified Raleigh DWI test defense attorney can help you with your case. The results of these tests can be, in some instances, extremely unreliable, so it is important to remember that a DWI charge is by no means a conviction.
