North Carolinians facing DWI charges need an aggressive legal advocate

Regardless of the circumstances, being pulled over by a police officer is a nerve-wracking experience. When an individual is subsequently asked to exit his or her vehicle and submit to field sobriety tests and a breath test or blood test, the situation quickly escalates. If faced with this scenario, it's important to pay close attention to what a police officer says and does and also to understand one's legal rights.

For example, when asked by a police officer, many North Carolina residents likely believe that they have no choice but to submit to a breath or blood test. While North Carolina's Implied Consent law imposes penalties against drivers who refuse to submit to these types of chemical tests, a police officer cannot force a driver to submit to a test. In reality, an individual not only has the right to refuse to submit to a breath or blood test, but doing so may also be one's best option.

North Carolina residents who are facing drunk driving charges may be subject to harsh penalties that have many negative personal and financial implications. It's critical, therefore, to retain a criminal defense attorney who has helped individuals in DWI/DUI cases.

The legal professionals at the Law Office of Christopher A. Connelly fight to defend the rights of individuals who are facing possible drunk driving convictions. Lead by criminal defense attorney Christopher A. Connelly, we understand the significant and adverse impact that a DWI/DUI can have on an individual's life. We also understand that drunk driving matters are often complex and that there are many variables that can impact the outcome of a case.
