Refusing a Breathalyzer

If you were stopped for a DUI in El Paso, the police officer may have asked you to submit to a breath or blood test. Under Texas law, a refusal to take a Breathalyzer test may result in an automatic driver’s license suspension. In some situations, a breath test refusal may be appropriate, since this will give the prosecutor no results to use against you. Whatever your decision, it is important to have an experienced attorney to help you protect your rights.

At the Law Offices of Ruben Ortiz, our law firm is not afraid to try DWI cases. If you were stopped illegally or your charge was unjust in any way, we will use technicalities of the law to your advantage. If possible, we will use evidence such as video surveillance of your field sobriety test to convince the district attorney to dismiss the charge against you through a motion to suppress the stop.

El Paso Breathalyzer Test Refusal Attorney

Before administering a breath or blood test, police are required to clearly inform you or your rights and the potential consequences for refusing the test. If you choose to invoke your right to legal representation, the police must wait until your attorney is present.

Our law firm can represent you during all DWI-related hearings, including your administrative license revocation (ALR) hearing. We can also work to help you obtain an occupational or temporary license, so you can get to and from work or school.

You don’t have to accept a drunk driving charge. Fighting a DWI charge can keep your criminal record clean and prevent you from dealing with hefty fines and other penalties.

Before you discuss your arrest with the police, contact the Law Offices of Ruben Ortiz for a consultation. You have the right to an attorney. Contact us online or call our El Paso DWI lawyer at (915) 308-8850 for a consultation.
