Pulled over for a DUI?

No Refusal DWI Defense Lawyers in Erie, PA

The “No Refusal” DWI program in Erie, PA has drawn sharp criticism for forcing blood draws on citizens who refuse to submit to a breath, blood or urine test. Taking a person’s blood by force based on an allegation that they committed a misdemeanor often leads to a challenge for violations of local procedures, state laws, and unreasonable seizures under the Fourth Amendment. These cases should be challenged by experienced DWI defense lawyers.

Under the “no refusal” policy, a person who refused to submit to chemical testing could be brought before a judge and, if appropriate, a warrant would be signed to require a blood draw. The stated goal of the policy is to discourage refusals and increase conviction rates for DWI. At Sebald, Hackwelder, & Knox, our experienced criminal defense lawyers fight these cases aggressively.

Call Sebald, Hackwelder, & Knox today to talk with our DWI defense lawyers about the facts of your case.
