Chemical Test Refusal

Refusing a Chemical Test in Colorado

DUI Defense Lawyer in Arapahoe County

Chemical test refusal in Colorado can drastically change the circumstances of your DUI case. Most people do not understand how refusing a Breathalyzer or blood test affects a DUI, especially the time-sensitive issues that suddenly come up. At the Law Offices of Joseph A. Lazzara, P.C., I work hard to defend clients from being convicted of DUI.

The first thing you need to do after an arrest for DUI or when you find yourself in legal trouble is to contact an experienced Denver DUI defense lawyer to learn about the defenses for your case.

As one of Denver's most recognized DUI defense attorneys, I have devoted my practice to defending DUI and criminal cases. My reputable firm is known throughout Colorado for providing highly personalized, hands-on legal representation. If you value having experienced and affordable legal representation, do not hesitate to reach out to my firm today.

What Happens if I Refuse a Chemical Test?

There are three types of chemical tests that can be used:

  • Breath testing
  • Blood testing
  • Urine testing

If you refused to take a blood or breath test upon being arrested or if you submitted a breath test over the legal limit of 0.08% BAC, you have no longer than seven days to request a hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles. You may not realize how time sensitive this is—or that refusing to request a hearing will mean an automatic revocation of your driving privileges.

I have more than 20 years of experience in the legal field. In that time, I have successfully represented thousands of individuals in Colorado as a Arapahoe County criminal defense lawyer. My team at the Law Offices of Joseph A. Lazzara, P.C. works to make your legal issues our top priority. I take the time to walk my clients through all steps of the legal process. I want to ensure you know what to expect every step of the way and that you are not surprised.
