Ventura County Alcohol Test Refusal Attorney
DUI Defense Lawyer in Westlake Village
It's important to know your rights and the possible consequences if you have refused an alcohol test or drug test as part of a DUI traffic stop. Law enforcement officers and prosecutors will most likely try to get the harshest possible DUI penalties for anyone suspected of drunk driving or a DUI involving drugs or medication who refuses the test. Penalties for DUI are very steep in California and can involve life impacting license suspensions, expensive fees and fines and even years of jail time in state prison. If you or someone you care about finds themselves in this situation after refusing an alcohol test, contact a Ventura County DUI attorney at the Law Offices of Robert F. Sommers immediately. We are concerned exclusively with DUI defense and each alcohol test refusal lawyer at our firm fights hard and dedicatedly for the client to help him or her avoid severe punishment.
About California Alcohol Tests
Many people are not aware of the fact that in California every driver is required to submit to a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test. This is part of the state's implied consent laws. By simply having a California driver's license and driving a vehicle, you have implicitly consented to do a breathalyzer or other test if pulled over by law enforcement. If you refuse to do the test for driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs or medication, your license is instantly revoked by the officer and other penalties may be added to your alleged DUI charges. A Ventura County DUI lawyer at our firm may be able to help you beat these charges even after a refusal to perform a blood alcohol test. We are fully familiar with DUI defenses and will scrutinize every aspect of the client's case to find any administrative or procedural errors committed by the arresting officer.
