When you're pulled over, it's vital to remember that you have fundamental rights under the law.

However, be aware that there are consequences for certain refusals, like declining a breathalyzer or sobriety test, which can vary from state to state. That's where our team at Daniel R Gonzalez PC steps in-to help you understand these nuances.
