Frequently Asked Questions

Get the Answers You Need

  • Questions

  • What is a Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST)?

    Answer

    SFSTs are types of tests that officers can issue to determine if a driver is operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Officers will try to get you to cooperate by asking you to perform a field sobriety test, which could include something like counting numbers, reciting the alphabet, walking in a straight line, or taking a breathalyzer test.

  • I failed my sobriety test. Now what?

    Answer

    Do not think that your case is automatically destined for failure. For the most part, these types of tests are created for failure. Even individuals who are not intoxicated can fail a field sobriety test. Because these types of tests can be unreliable, speaking with attorney to determine potential defense options will be encouraged.

  • Are field sobriety tests mandatory?

    Answer

    Contrary to popular belief, most roadside sobriety tests are completely voluntary. This means you can politely tell an officer that you do not want to participate in a roadside sobriety test. If an officer arrests you and asks you to take a blood or chemical test, however, this type of test will be mandatory. Refusal of a chemical test could result in the revocation of your driver’s license.

  • What if I rely on my license for my job?

    Answer

    A DUI arrest or conviction can be incredibly serious for drivers who rely on their license for work-related duties. Though the best advice for commercial drivers is to never drink while driving, we understand that even the smallest mistake could jeopardize your future. To prevent a revocation or suspension of your Commercial Driver’s License (CDL), you must speak with an attorney immediately.
