Field sobriety tests are commonly used by law enforcement officers to determine if a driver is likely under the influence or drugs or alcohol and should be tested further. Despite their commonality, the results of these tests could be misinterpreted by a police officer. If you believe that your rights were violated during the administration of a field sobriety test or after a failed sobriety test, we can help.
