Sobriety Tests There Can Only Be One Best DUI Law Firm

Wisconsin Field Sobriety Lawyer

When police officers are not sufficiently trained in field sobriety testing or fail to follow procedures, the rights of our clients facing serious DUI charges are violated. At Melowski & Singh, we understand the consequences and challenges our clients face with a drunk driving accusation hanging over their head. They are looking at the possibility of jail time, fines and driver's license suspension.

Milwaukee Sobriety Test Attorneys

Rugged and uneven terrain, poor weather conditions, your choice of footwear or even a bad back can result in failing a field sobriety test. A disability that involves multiple sclerosis or other diseases that impact physical abilities can result in a trip to jail. Hiring a lawyer well-versed in police procedures for field sobriety tests is imperative and may be the best shot at successfully defending your case.

Unlike Breathalyzer tests, field sobriety test results are subject to interpretation.

You can search the Internet and flip through the pages of a telephone book to find numerous attorneys who "handle" DUI cases. Most dedicate themselves to pushing papers and taking whatever plea bargain the prosecutor feels like giving them. At Melowski & Singh, we approach DUI cases differently. We are about success and achieving tangible results that our clients can see for themselves. Acquittals are frequent, and trials are numerous.

Success comes by attending to every detail of a drunk driving defense, particularly the field sobriety testing. We do not boast about years of experience or memberships on certain boards. That does little to help our clients dealing with the life-changing impact of a DUI conviction.

Don't settle for case handling or hand-holding. Take immediate action and secure the services of a winner.

Wisconsin Field Sobriety Tests FAQ

Are field sobriety tests mandatory in Wisconsin?

No, field sobriety tests are not mandatory in Wisconsin. Drivers have the right to refuse to perform these tests without facing automatic penalties, although refusal may lead to other consequences such as arrest and license suspension.

Can I refuse to take a field sobriety test?

Yes, you have the right to refuse to take a field sobriety test in Wisconsin. However, it's essential to understand that refusing a field sobriety test does not guarantee that you won't be arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI). Officers may still arrest you based on other observations and evidence.

What are the consequences of failing a field sobriety test?

Failing a field sobriety test can provide law enforcement officers with probable cause to arrest you for DUI. If you are arrested and subsequently convicted of DUI, you may face penalties such as fines, license suspension, mandatory alcohol education programs, and even jail time, depending on the circumstances of your case.

Can field sobriety test results be challenged in court?

Yes, field sobriety test results can be challenged in court. An experienced field sobriety attorney can evaluate the circumstances surrounding your test administration, including factors such as weather conditions, road surface, and the officer's training and conduct. Any inconsistencies or errors in test administration may be used to challenge the validity of the results.

Should I submit to a breathalyzer test after failing a field sobriety test?

The decision to submit to a breathalyzer test after failing a field sobriety test is personal and depends on various factors. It's crucial to understand the potential consequences of refusing a breathalyzer test, such as automatic license suspension, and weigh them against the potential benefits of challenging the test results in court with the help of an attorney.

How can a field sobriety attorney help me?

A field sobriety attorney can provide invaluable legal representation and advocacy if you've been charged with DUI based on field sobriety test results. Your attorney can assess the circumstances of your case, challenge the validity of the test results, negotiate with prosecutors for reduced charges or penalties, and represent you in court if necessary to protect your rights and achieve the best possible outcome.
