Do I have a right to a lawyer when I'm stopped by an officer and asked to take a field sobriety test?

As a general rule, there is no right to a lawyer until you have submitted to (or refused) breath testing. There is a right to consult with counsel upon being arrested or before deciding whether to submit to a BAC test. You have the right to consult a lawyer before your decision to take the BAC test, but you don't have the right to have the lawyer present while taking the test. The general rule is that the officer only needs to take reasonable steps to place you in contact with a lawyer, including providing you with the name and number of the public defender. If a lawyer cannot be located after a reasonable attempt, you must decide without contact with a lawyer whether or not to take the BAC test.
