Charged with DWI AND ACCIDENT I was not driving.

How can I receive a dui when cop rufuses me a breathlizer?
Was the DD this night for a buddy. I got pulled over and asked if I had been drinking. I told the cop I had one beer and it was an hour before driving.

Should I find a new attorney for my DWI case?
I received a dwi in June 2017. My case has been reset 3 times and I've yet to speak to my attorney directly. I paid the initial 1500 retainer fee after doing the best research I could online.

Each time I speak with the legal aide she explains the process and says the attorney will reach me closer to the reset date and is busy in trial. They have the discovery in office but I'm not sure what is recommended. Should I seek new counsel or does this seem standard for this situation?
Lawyers do not like to knock others when we really don't know all the details. But, I will say that IF the lawyer has...
