Refusing A Breath Or Blood Test

Omaha Lawyer For Refusing A Breath Test

Experienced DUI Defense

Our founding attorney, John K. Green, is an experienced, dedicated Nebraska DUI defense lawyer. With more than 30 years of experience in the practice of law, we will defend your case aggressively and do everything possible to make sure that your refusal to take a breath or blood test will not lead to a conviction for driving under the influence (DUI).

Implied Consent

Nebraska, like most states, operates under “implied consent” laws for drivers. By applying for licenses and operating their vehicles, drivers consent to submitting to blood alcohol testing when the police have reason to believe they are driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Refusing The Test

In the heat of the moment of being stopped on suspicion of DUI, most people don’t think about the consequences of refusing a breath test. However, refusing to take a breath or blood test could come back to haunt you. It is important to work with an experienced, dedicated Omaha attorney. For refusing a breath test, the penalties are the same as if you tested positive for an illegally high blood alcohol level (BAC):

  • Fines
  • Possible jail time
  • License suspension or revocation
  • Damaged reputation

With more than 30 years of legal experience, we understand the laws and the procedures involved with DUI defense. We will do everything possible to minimize the damage that DUI charges could bring to your life. At the law office of John K. Green, Attorney at Law, we will fight to get the case dismissed, suppress key evidence, minimize your sentence or find alternative sentencing options.
