If you are arrested for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and you refuse to submit to a chemical test (refuse to blow), according to Missouri law, you could automatically lose your license for one year, with the revocation becoming effective fifteen (15) days from your refusal.
It is imperative that you hire an attorney before the expiration of those 15 days! In most cases, Attorney Laurie Dodd can obtain a “stay” of the revocation, meaning the revocation is put on hold pending further proceedings. In some cases, Laurie Dodd can prevent your license from becoming revoked at all.
Did you know that if you are pulled over and the officer requests that you submit to a chemical test (Breathalyzer), that you are entitled to 20 minutes to speak to an attorney? Use this time to call Attorney Laurie Dodd!
If you are not able to meet Attorney Laurie Dodd until after the expiration of the fifteen (15) day period, she may be able assist you in acquiring a limited driving privilege (hardship license) during that one year period.
