Refused a Breathalyzer – License Lawyer

Our client’s license was suspended for an entire year after he was arrested for drinking and driving and refused to submit to a Breathalyzer under Michigan’s Implied Consent Law.

This meant that he would not be allowed to drive at all for an entire year, not even for his court obligations, work, or even for a medical emergency. That was until he called Michigan driver license lawyer, Aaron J. Boria and his driver license was restored (734) 453-7806.

Michigan Implied Consent Law

Michigan Implied Consent Law states that if you are arrested for drinking and driving in Michigan then you have already agreed to submit to a chemical test at the request of a police officer.

You can challenge the officer’s claim that you refused the test improperly. The following are four legal reasons you can challenge the alleged refusal.

  1. The officer did not have reasonable grounds to believe that you committed a crime of drinking and driving.
  1. You were arrested for some other crime than drinking and driving. For instance, if you were arrested for driving on a suspended license and then they later asked you to submit to a test then that refusal would be proper.
  1. Your refusal was reasonable given the circumstances.
  1. Whether you were advised of your rights.

Driver License Lawyer Michigan

In this case our client had his Implied Consent hearing and lost, because he did not have a valid reason to refuse the Breathalyzer, and was properly arrested for drinking and driving.

Nonetheless, driver license lawyer, Aaron J. Boria appealed the matter to the circuit court on the grounds that having his license revoked for a year would cause an undue hardship.

After driver license lawyer, Boria spoke with the prosecutor he agreed that the hardship would be too much and the judge signed the order granting our client driving privileges. Our client will be able to get back on the road!
