He has had the same training as New Jersey law enforcement and will notice poor administration of a breath test by carefully reviewing official police procedures, machine calibration and maintenance standards.
Standardized Field Sobriety Testing
A field sobriety test would not be the only evidence used to ascertain if somebody was inebriated beyond the legal limit. But, it can provide reasonable cause for a police officer, which requires the implementation of a blood alcohol test. Mistakes do occur despite training to administer standardized field sobriety testing. If the test is done improperly, it can disprove the readings of a breath test and lead to charges being lessened.

The number of drug-related driving detentions are on the rise in NJ. If you were arrested on suspicion of DUI, getting a lawyer educated in drug recognition evaluation (DRE) is imperative to your case. Mr. Villani is intimately familiar with the proper procedure of the DRE and will use any wrong steps taken by law enforcement to help your case.
Charges and Penalties New Jersey DWI Lawyers Will Challenge

New Jersey operates under an implied consent law, requiring drivers to submit to a breath test if there is suspicion of drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs.

Breath test refusal may even end in a poorer outcome than a DWI guilty sentence.
Probable cause has to be established by a police officer prior to a breath test can be implemented. An experienced DWI attorney can help evaluate whether probable cause was founded or determine whether mitigating circumstances, such as a medical condition played a function in your refusal.
