Regardless if you’ve had a drink or not, once you get behind the wheel of your car, you open yourself up to the potential of being investigated by the police for DUI. For this reason, it is of utmost importance that you know your rights and prepare yourself for a possible DUI investigation. During a DUI investigation, the police will almost certainly ask you to perform a series of field sobriety exercises. At Fischer Redavid PLLC, we’ve had several clients ask us if they should or should not have agreed to a field sobriety exercise. The answer we give is always a resounding yes. Agreeing to perform these exercises will almost always look better than a refusal, especially if your case goes all the way to jury trial. Our Hollywood DUI attorney knows what to highlight and downplay in regards to the process and results of the investigation. When you take part in these tests, you may also be able to refuse a breathalyzer or other chemical testing, which is an evidence that may be harder to contest.
In case you have been arrested despite your cooperation in performing the field sobriety exercises, what you can do is contact our firm as soon as possible. We have helped countless clients with cases similar to yours and have a winning streak since 2015. You can trust that we are ready to vigorously defend you no matter what.
