April 12, 2015 Should I request an attorney before I take the breath test?Absolutely. Upon arrest for DUI, you should ask to speak with an attorney immediately or as soon as possible. Do not make any statements to the police. There is an attorney (public defender) on call for that purpose. The officer will help you get in touch with them.
