Refusal To Test

Albany DWI Defense Attorney Protecting the Rights of Individuals Who Refused Intoxication Testing 

Are you facing criminal charges in Albany for a refusal to test after a Driving While Intoxicated stop or accusation? A chemical test refusal is a crime in Albany and across the state of New York. However, the state must prove beyond a reasonable doubt a number of elements to establish guilt in such a case. An experienced Albany DWI defense attorney can help protect your rights. 

At The Law Office of James E. Tyner, PLLC, we provide aggressive and experienced representation for DWI test refusals. In addition to our work defending clients who have refused to take chemical, alcohol or drug tests, we handle a variety of other traffic violations including:

  • Driver’s license revocation
  • DMV hearings/ALJ
  • Speeding violations
  • Careless driving and reckless driving
  • Vehicular homicide
  • Sobriety tests/breath tests

Protect Your Pocketbook and Your Driver’s License

A conviction for refusal to test (chemical test refusal) can result in a one-year driver’s license revocation. However, you have a right to a hearing. If you retain our law office, we will ask the following questions on your behalf:

  • Did the police officer have a right to stop your vehicle?
  • Did the officer have reasonable grounds to believe you were intoxicated?
  • Did the officer give you a refusal warning?
  • Did you in fact refuse to take the test (by saying no or showing your refusal through your conduct)?

If you have been arrested for chemical test refusal, contact our law office for assistance.
