Hit & Run Defense

If you were involved in a motor vehicle accident that may have injured someone and you have not reported it, the time to consult a lawyer is right now. If the police have contacted you about your involvement in a crash, you probably do not need anyone to tell you that your freedom and future are on the line. What you need is experienced legal counsel focused on your best interests, and for that you can count on attorney James L. Finegan.

Contact him as soon as possible after the incident to protect your rights and your future. The firm defends clients against DUI charges in metro Denver and throughout Jefferson County.

Working To Minimize Penalties

Colorado laws covering hit-and-run offenses and leaving the scene of an accident are complex and multitiered. Conviction for causing someone’s death in a hit-and-run accident, for example, can bring a lengthy prison term and massive fines, for example, whereas your case may be dramatically less serious if you caused only property damage.

Whether you face a misdemeanor or felony charge can depend on many factors and circumstances, including:

  • The consequences of the accident, including infliction of serious bodily injury or wrongful death on any other driver, passenger, pedestrian or bicyclist
  • Witness testimony or another evidence relevant to how the accident occurred, who may have been at fault and your actions afterward
  • Whether you have been charged with a DUI/DWAI in addition to the hit-and-run allegations

Denver hit-and-run attorney James L. Finegan brings decades of criminal defense experience to each case, and his mission is to help you — not to judge you for what happened. You may have left the scene of a car accident because you were shaken or panicked, for example, or because you have other legal problems and did not want to face the police. The most important thing is to begin making conscious, sound decisions going forward.

A Good Defense Is Critical

Whatever occurred in your specific situation, it would be impossible to overemphasize your need for an experienced criminal defense attorney at this critical time.

Attorney James L. Finegan is prepared to investigate your case and build the best possible defense for you, beginning with a confidential consultation. Call him at(303) 980-5511.
