Experienced DUI Breath Test Refusals Defense In Fairfax County
Did you refuse law enforcement’s insistence on a breath alcohol test after being stopped for driving in Fairfax County under the influence?
Our experienced breath test refusal attorneys of Hogan & Pritchard, PLLC, operate aggressively, in and out of court, to protect your rights in any DUI-related matter. We know how important your Virginia driver’s license is to you — and fight hard to help you keep it.
Martin P. Hogan and Michael T. Pritchard bring almost 35 years of combined experience to your side when a breath test refusal charge puts you in trouble with the law. These skilled criminal defense attorneys excel at in-depth investigation, thorough case preparation for every phase of the General District Court process, and negotiations with those who would convict and punish you.
Being convicted for refusing a breath test at a drunk driving arrest scene carries its own serious civil consequences, in addition to the potentially criminal nature of DUI. You could be arrested simply for refusing to be tested, which arouses a police officer’s suspicion that you have been driving drunk.
Mr. Hogan and Mr. Pritchard ensure that you know all the facts about DUI law that pertain to your case, including “implied consent” and evidentiary breath and blood tests. They also want you to be aware of the punishments that are possible upon conviction: first-offense refusal carries a year-long driver’s license suspension, and a second-offense means three years without a license. Obtaining a restricted driver’s license would not be possible in either example.
These are consequences you do not want to ponder, if your mobility is truly precious to you. When you contact Hogan & Pritchard, PLLC, our lawyers will listen carefully to your side of the story, respond realistically and begin the job of safeguarding your present and future interests.
