Hit and Run Attorney
At the Law Offices of Jay S. Finnecy, we have successfully represented dozens of clients faced with hit and run charges. Attorney Jay S. Finnecy has developed an expertise helping his clients avoid criminal charges entirely when he is contacted BEFORE the client talks to the police. When being investigated for a hit and run it is essential that the client knows how to invoke his/her right to remain silent and to be represented by counsel.
California Vehicle Code section 20002(a) requires the driver of a vehicle involved in an accident to stop and exchange information with any other driver involved including (1) driver’s license, (2) insurance, and (3) vehicle registration. If no other driver is present (i.e. you crashed into a parked car), you are required to leave your information posted on the other vehicle. Many people, however, leave the scene of accidents because they are driving under the influence of alcohol, driving on a suspended license, are not documented, have outstanding warrants, or are simply scared. Whatever the reason for leaving the scene of the accident, please call the Law Offices of Jay S. Finnecy IMMEDIATELY for a free consultation/case evaluation. 760-522-7006
Leaving the scene of an accident involving only property damage is a misdemeanor—Vehicle Code section 20002(a).
Leaving the scene of an accident involving an injury is a felony punishable by up to three years in State Prison—Vehicle Code section 20001(a).
DO NOT call the police before calling the Law Offices of Jay S. Finnecy.
