Hit and run charges dismissed in the Bronx

Our client was arrested for allegedly hitting a child and driving off without properly leaving identifying information or insurance information or waiting for the police. When our client came to see us, our client was very concerned about the direction their case was going while it was in the hands of a different lawyer. Our client contacted us. After we were hired to take on the case, we sent for, obtained, and reviewed the many allegations made about our client in the police paperwork, criminal court complaint, and medical records. Because the alleged victim was a child, the district attorney was pushing for a harsh penalty and a criminal record. After we raised a legal issue concerning legal definitions of reporting an accident in New York, we were able to negotiate a very favorable outcome. We negotiated a deal to have the charges reduced to only a traffic infraction and no jail, no probation, and no criminal record.
