How To Handle A DWI Situation
You certainly need legal assistance if you are facing a DWI, but many people do not know what to do to protect themselves before they are ever charged. When you are pulled over and suspected of intoxicated driving, the police officer will ask you to take a breath test. Should you take it?
Yes. We advise that you do. Refusing a breath test will result in a license revocation, leaving you unable to drive for a significant amount of time. Because you can still be charged with DWI despite refusing the test, you may deal with even more consequences than you otherwise would have.
