Hello.

Unfortunately, refusing the breathalyzer results in a 6 month license suspension, and while some states have provisions for limited and/or hardship licenses, Rhode Island is not one of those states. You can try to challenge the suspension at a DMV hearing, but unless you didn't actually refuse the breathalyzer, there's really nothing you could say that would stop the license suspension unfortunately.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
