Q:
If an officer arrests me for DUI or DWI, is he required to read me my Miranda rights?

A:
No, but it can be relevant in DUI/DWI cases.  

This is a common mistake by attorneys.   General practice is that cops don't read Miranda after an arrest unless they are expecting to conduct an interrogation and hoping to elicit a confession.   

Nevertheless, in some DWI Accident cases, they need statements from our clients, and an Experienced Fairfax County DUI Attorney might have the opportunity to get such statements suppressed.
