Should I submit to or Refuse the Breath, Urine or Blood Test(s)? See more at our FAQs page.

Just say: “No!” “Officer, on the advise of counsel. I have been instructed not to perform these standard field sobriety tests.” If arrested, at the station, ask to consult with your attorney before submitting to ANY chemical tests: breath, urine and/or blood.

+ Client was never given nor was he advised of his rights with a DR-15. Neither was a Alcohol Influence Report produced as part of a discovery or police report package.
