Refused a Breath Test – Lawyer Michigan
If you were arrested for drunk driving and the police officer alleged that you refused a breath test or a chemical test then your license will be revoked for a year under Michigan’s implied Consent Law.
It is possible to challenge the refusal at the Michigan Secretary of State on the grounds that the refusal was reasonable, the arrest wasn’t proper, or that you were not advised of your rights. If you do not win this hearing or if you failed to request the hearing within 14 days of the refusal then the one-year license suspension will go into effect.
Don’t worry, because there is still hope to regain your driving privileges. Michigan driver license lawyer, Aaron J. Boria, to date has a 100% success rate in obtaining his client’s driving privileges based on a hardship.
Refusing a Breathalyzer in Michigan
Michigan’s Implied Consent law states that if you refuse a chemical test after being arrested for drinking and driving then your license us suspended for an entire year. You are not allowed to drive at all, not to work, not to the hospital, no driving at all.
You can attempt a hearing to challenge the refusal on legal grounds; however, these hearings are very difficult to win and the majority of people lose.
There is one last thing that you can do in order to get back on the road and that is a petition to the circuit court. Michigan law allows a person to petition the circuit court where the refusal occurred in order to have your lawyer convince the judge that if they are not given some driving privileges then they would suffer a hardship.
If you are granted a hardship license then you will be able to drive to work, school, court and court requirements, and necessary medical appointments during the period of time your license would have otherwise been suspended.
