One charge can ruin your future, which is why I will thoroughly evaluate your case to build the strongest defense in your name.

DUI Defense When You Fail A Breathalyzer Test

In New Jersey you are not allowed to decline a breath or blood test, and if you do decline it will result in suspensions and additional penalties. If you do agree to take a breath test and happen to fail, there are still ways to defend yourself and prevent a DUI conviction.

Chart of Ways to Defend Against a DUI Charge

Blood and breath tests are notoriously unreliable, and there may have been a factor at play in your case that could have affected the results of your test.

  • The equipment may have been faulty, or the police officer may have operated it improperly.
  • You may have had trace amounts of alcohol on your breath from using mouthwash, or because of heartburn, acid reflux or another medical condition.
  • Some medications such as Albuterol inhalers may interfere with test results.

Even if the test was reliable, you may be able to get your case dismissed if police handled it improperly. If you were arrested without probable cause, or if police infringed upon your rights in any way, you may not have to face any charges at all.
