In Colorado, asking to talk to a lawyer can be a refusal. Even if you are carrying my cell phone number with you (720-771-9776) and you are stopped for a dui the police do not have to let you call your attorney before deciding what type of blood alcohol test you are going to take. Many times in the cases I have worked with, the person being arrested has asked to speak to an attorney and the police considered that a refusal to take a test and they lose their license. You often are given the choice of a breath or blood draw test to measure your blood alcohol. You do not have to give them the evidence against you but it is a violation of the consent law if you refuse and the refusal itself can make you lose your license. Refusing the test will not stop them from charging you with a DUI. They can use other evidence to back up their case. Be careful with that decision.
