Do I have a right to an attorney when I am stopped by an officer and asked to take a field sobriety test in Tennessee?
Know your Rights.
What are your rights when stopped or being investigated for driving under the influence?
In the event that you are stopped for suspicious drunk driving activity, below are some of the options available to you that you may not be aware of.
• It is your right not to answer any questions.
• It is your right not to perform roadside tests.
• It is your right not to have your eyes tested.
• It is your right not to blow into a hand-
In most cases you do not have to take a blood or breath test.
Absolutely no matter how guilty you may think you are at the time of the actual DUI arrest, we would like you to understand one important thing: There's always an aggressive and effective defense to your DUI case that can assist you and your attorney fight for the best possible outcome.
In our experience, many police officers tend not to adhere to proper field sobriety test procedures. The truth is, challenging probable cause and exactly how field sobriety tests, breath tests and chemical test such as blood or urine tests were administered can be an effective strategy to reduce or have the DUI charges dismissed. Also, many individuals plead guilty prematurely based on a breath test with a result above the legal limit. This is usually a typical and costly blunder, because there are a number of techniques in having the breath test suppressed.
