Clients Facing Hit and Run Charges

Our Los Angeles Hit and Run Lawyers (although we also help clients in other counties) spend each day representing clients facing vehicle code violations, the most common being misdemeanor and felony hit and run charges. These types of cases are our specialty.

Our firm has developed a unique and extremely effective pre-filing strategy which eliminates over 90% of hit and run charges from being filed against our clients. For example, when a client retains our law firm after being involved in a hit and run accident, our attorneys bolt into action creating a powerful strategy tailored to the unique facts of each client's case.

Our goal is to prevent the filing of hit and run charges. This "happy ending approach" lets clients walk away from this mistake without any consequences whatsoever. No court case, no conviction, no jail, no probation, no community service, no fines ... and most importantly no tarnish on your good record. It puts smiles on our clients faces every week.

Once retained, we immediately contact the appropriate police department (depending upon the location of the accident). This fast and proactive approach continues to impress the police investigators everyday with our "total cooperation approach".

Our #1 priority is to turn a negative situation into a much more positive one setting the stage to negotiate a civil compromise with the police and the other party (s) involved in the accident. It is interesting to note that the fault of the accident is irrelevant in hit and run cases. Conversely in dealing with auto insurance companies this is the most important factor in deciding whether to pay or deny a claim.

Our excellent working relationships with police officers in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego Counties have earned our law firm record breaking results in hit and run cases.

Client Reviews
I can't begin to thank Mr. Hoffman enough for his extensive efforts throughout the entire case. He went absolutely above and beyond throughout the entire process. From day one he was immediately actively pursuing ways to prevent my case from ever going to court and once that was no longer an option, actively began working on getting the case ultimately dismissed. His communication was consistent and reassuring, despite my frantic worries all the time... Micaiah Botts
My family and I simply owe our life and future to Ron Hoffman. If you are looking for a lawyer that goes above and beyond the call of duty you can't find a better lawyer than Ron. He took my case head on from the moment I called his office. I was involved in an accidental hit and run where I was unaware of the injury. Every step of the way, Ron guided me through an almost two year long investigation and court settlement process and was constantly by my side through out every crossroad... Bill Martin
Ron Hoffman and his staff were Fantastic when dealing with such a serious issue of DUI. When I first Called Ron I was very nervous and worried for my daughter and her freedom. She had a failure to appear on top of her DUI and I knew just how bad this could be. Ron was able to immediately put me at ease and gave me the confidence that there was hope and a light at the end of the tunnel. Ron was able to get the failure to appear dismissed and also no jail time for my daughter... Claude Brown
I have been working with Mr. Hoffman for over 11 years. I have seen first hand his genuine dedication to his clients, and how his experience, knowledge and passion have gotten clients fantastic results. He treats each of his clients as his only client, and takes the time to develop detailed strategies and defenses for each individual case. I have never hesitated to refer Mr. Hoffman to anyone who has asked me for a good Criminal Defense attorney. He is a fantastic attorney!... Neeta P.
