Driving Under the Influence (DUI)

Drinking and driving is greatly enforced in the state of Rhode Island.  With easy access to Uber and other like services, there is no good reason to driving after a few cocktails. But in the real world, it could happen to anybody.  After being charged and arrested by the police you are understandably embarrassed and you feel just awful.  Being processed in the police station makes you feel violated.  If you refuse to take the breathalyzer when requested by the police you will be charged in the Traffic Court for the refusal, and you will be charged in the District Court for the criminal charge of driving under the influence.  But now you need to put the past behind you and hire an experienced attorney immediately to strategize a defense.  The Traffic Court will seek to have your license preliminarily suspended at the first court date.

Attorney Biafore has prevented this initial suspension in the past.  He has also been successful with clients not losing their privilege to operate a motor vehicle at all. Rhode Island laws have changed in the recent past to give the attorneys options to obtain hardship licenses allowing people to drive to and from work, as well as other options to maintain your right to drive after being charged with a refusal. There are rules the police must adhere to so that the prosecutors can prove their case against you, therefore you need an experienced attorney who is well polished in the traffic court proceedings. Attorney Biafore has a great track record getting his clients’ refusal cases dismissed.
