With summer quickly approaching, residents throughout New Hampshire will soon be enjoying warmer temperatures and all of the fun recreational activities that come with them. From backyard barbecues to trips to the beach, adults often like to enjoy an alcoholic beverage or two during the hot summer months. In cases where a fun summer day ends with a DUI arrest, it’s important to contact a defense attorney as soon as possible.

Being pulled over by a police officer is always a nerve-racking experience and a nervous driver may falter when answering questions or performing a field sobriety test. In cases where a police officer subsequently requests that a driver submit to a breathalyzer test, an individual should be aware that he or she is not obligated to do so. In fact, in many cases it’s in a driver’s best interest to refuse to take a breath test and to remain silent until he or she is able to contact an attorney.
