Take a breath (literally) in the wake of a DUI

Let's say that you get behind the wheel of a car after you've had a few too many drinks. You shouldn't make this decision under any circumstance -- but you do it anyway. As you are driving home, the police pull you over because you were swerving all over the road. You instantly begin thinking of ways to get out of what you assume will be a DUI, and you quickly land on your strategy: you'll just refuse the breath test. Simple, easy, and it can't fail.

Well, not exactly. You are basically compelled to take a breath test as a result of obtaining your driver's license from the state. Refusing to take the test can really only hurt you. You will be subjected to more penalties and the police will probably still get your blood alcohol content anyway.

In reality, the best way for you to defend yourself in this situation is to accept the breath test and to consult with a criminal defense attorney as soon as you possibly can. And if you are in Rhode Island, the names to remember are Sayer, Regan & Thayer.

We have a lot of experience dealing with driving under the influence cases, and we will help protect your rights during the immediate aftermath of the DUI. We will then do our best in court to reduce the penalties against you -- or to help you fight the charge if discrepancies or police misconduct was involved in your case in any way.
