New York Driver’s License Revocation Attorney
If your license was suspended or revoked for refusal to take a breath, blood or urine test after being pulled over for drunk driving in New York, you are entitled to a hearing to challenge the license revocation.
In such circumstances, you need an experienced attorney by your side to help you protect your driving privileges. The Brill Legal Group can provide you with effective representation to guide you through the revocation hearing process.
BAC Chemical Testing in New York
When you drive a vehicle in New York, you implicitly give your consent to chemical testing to determine the content of alcohol in you system. If you refuse to take a test to measure the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) in your system after you are pulled over, you may be subject to your license being revoked. The period of license revocation varies depending on the driver’s age, the number of offenses and their time frame. The time frame for a revocation may be increased based on a previous conviction for a DWI-related offense or due to a BAC of 0.18 percent or higher.
License revocation or suspension is distinct from any subsequent criminal penalties you may face due to DWI charges. You are entitled to a hearing within 15 days of receiving a license suspension for refusal to submit to chemical testing.

It is essential to contact an experienced DWI defense lawyer who will help you create the best legal strategy for your revocation hearing in order to get your driving privileges reinstated.
