All Criminal Lawyers Are Not Created Equal

HIT AND RUN IS A GAME CHANGER:


  • THERE IS A LEVEL OF PREJUDICE  OR PRECONCEIVED OPINION  THAT IS NOT BASED ON REASON OR ACTUAL EXPERIENCE ASSOCIATED WITH A HIT AND RUN WHILE DRIVING


  • YOUR PEERS MAY PREDISPOSE A HIT AND RUN DRIVING OFFENSE AS "YOU ARE GUILTY"  BEFORE THE FACTS ARE HEARD


  • HIT AND RUN MAY CHANGE HOW A PROSECUTING ATTORNEY WILL CHARGE YOUR DRIVING OFFENSE.


  • IF CONVICTED, A HIT AND RUN MAY AFFECT HOW A JUDGE HANDS DOWN A SENTENCE.


If you are facing a Hit and Run charge, do you want a personal injury lawyer defending you? Do you want a family lawyer or a real estate lawyer standing beside you when the verdict is read?


CRIMINAL LAW IS ALL WE DO


The Yellow Pages and the Internet are full of lawyers that claim they can represent you on a DUI (drunk driving) charge. Where as a Hit and Run adds further penalties to that charge. Many lawyers try to wear many hats and be all things to all people. Do you want a general practice lawyer handling your criminal case? Do you want a foot doctor operating on your heart?


Peter Aiken , Sean O'Halloran and Robert Foley are former prosecutors, and have been handling DUI criminal cases their entire careers. Criminal defense is all we do.


Should I use the Sarasota Public Defender for a Hit and Run?


Private lawyers, such as our attorneys at Aiken, O'Halloran and Foley, have a tremendous advantage over the public defender in a Hit and Run case.

Hit and run convictions can result in your driver’s license being revoked, in substantial restitution orders and in some cases minimum mandatory prison sentences.  Do not try and talk your way out of a bad situation.  You may have panicked then but now is the time to approach this with a clear head.


As private lawyers, we get the video, we cross examine the arresting officer and we develop valuable testimony which can help your case long before a public defender would even be appointed.
