Suspicion Of Driving Under The Influence Can Result In Limited Mobility

If a law enforcement officer pulled you over for suspicion of driving under the influence and asked you to take a Breathalyzer test, you will want to build a criminal defense. DUI (driving under the influence) or OUI (operating under the influence) charges can result in license suspicion, mandatory alcohol assessment, education or treatment. All DUI convictions result in jail time, and you will want a criminal defense attorney to guide you through the complexities of the legal system.

At The Law Office of Joshua P. Fink, LLC, we work diligently to assert your rights. We provide high-level service with one-on-one 24-hour accessible legal counsel. We understand your concerns, and we want to help you avoid lifelong consequences, with a skilled legal defense. Contact us for fair and confident representation regarding your stop or arrest.

Can I Refuse To Take A Breath Test In Alaska?

The refusal of a Breathalyzer test in Alaska can be as serious as a conviction for a DUI. As a driver, you implicitly agree to sobriety testing at the discretion of law enforcement. You will lose your license if you refuse to take a breath test.

It is in your best interest to comply with law enforcement and battle the test results in court at a later date. Our aggressive criminal defense lawyer has received the same training for National Highway Traffic Safety Administration sobriety testing that police officers receive. We know the proper procedures for a stop and how an officer should conduct themselves.

What If My Breathalyzer Test Proves I Am Guilty?

Not all breath tests prove guilt. Sometimes the breathalyzer isn’t calibrated, or it may have malfunctioned at the time of your stop. In addition, law enforcement would have to prove that they pulled you over for a legitimate reason. We will investigate every detail of your stop and your arrest. Consult our knowledgeable attorney.
