Implied Consent Refusal Michigan
If you refuse a breath test after you have been arrested in Michigan then your license will be revoked for a year. Michigan law says that if you are arrested for drinking and driving then you have already consented to a breath test.
You cannot drive at all for a violation for an implied consent refusal.
There is hope! You can challenge the refusal at the secretary of state or you can file for a hardship license. In this case we decided that filing for the hardship license was the best route, and we were right.
After filing some documents and making an argument to the circuit court judge a hardship license was granted. Our client will be able to legally drive to work, school, medical appointments, and anything court related.
If your license has been revoked for refusing a breath test then you need to call Michigan driver license lawyer, Aaron J. Boria today (734) 453-7806.
