Refusal Hearings in Nassau County and Suffolk County
Experienced New York Defense Attorneys
After refusing a breath test or chemical test, you are entitled to a refusal hearing. This hearing is different from a criminal proceeding and is conducted by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). These hearings can be very complicated. Our attorneys at the law offices of Rudman & Rudman have the knowledge and experience necessary to protect your rights and find the best possible outcome in your case.
You can face severe penalties including fines and license revocation if you have refused a breath test or chemical test. It is highly recommended that you obtain legal counsel for this hearing. At this hearing, the judge will make a determination as to whether or not you knowingly refused. The evidence at the hearing can be used against you in the criminal case. However, the opportunity to cross-examine the police officer will provide important information for your criminal case.
We Can Protect Your Rights During a Refusal Hearing
Our lawyers understand how the DMV conducts refusal hearings. We know what steps to take to protect your rights. We will cross-examine the arresting officer and challenge his or her testimony. We will also question if the police officer explained your rights and if you understood your rights before refusing to take the chemical test.
It is important to work with an experienced law firm if you refused a Breathalyzer test or chemical test. We have more than 40 years of experience defending drivers in criminal matters and refusal hearings.
