We understand how you feel, so let's face it... you made a mistake in not stopping and exchanging information and you're trying to figure out what to do next. You're stress level is through the roof and you're confused. You don't want to do the wrong thing. These are all common feelings and emotions our clients have.

Tip #1 - Don't be so overwhelmed by fear and uncertainty that you become immobilized and do nothing. We are all human and make mistakes. Your next moves are critical and can dramatically affect the outcome of your case.

Tip #2 - Taking immediate action and being proactive can make you look much better by contacting the police before they contact you. We do this everyday for our clients.

Tip #3 - In almost every hit and run accident, cooperation creates a much better environment for our clients to get favorable treatment in the eyes of the law and with the other party involved in the accident.

Tip #4 - The facts and circumstances of every accident are different and so are the ways each police department handles these cases.

Tip #5 - Don't underestimate the power of having a hit and run specialist protect you and fight to prevent hit and run charges from being filed against you. The result can help you avoid the expense and stress of a court case.

Tip #6 - It is never a good idea to turn yourself into the police station (no matter how guilty you feel) without knowing about the real facts of the accident. Avoiding being arrested is always an advantage... we can help you by negotiating with the police to avoid this from happening and save you this very unpleasant experience.

Tip #7 - Don't call the police when you have left the scene of an accident without exchanging information or without consulting an attorney. If the police come to your home or work, don't agree to speak to them without your lawyer being present.

Tip #8 - Don't make your situation worse by making false statements to the police or your insurance company (like my car was stolen, when it wasn't). If you have already done this... we can help correct these mistakes to avoid more trouble for you.

Tip #9 - Honesty may or may not, be the best thing for you to do without knowing more about the facts of the case including "has anyone identified you or your vehicle". Be cautious, all statements made to the police by you can be used against you. Before making a statement to the police, know your options and have a strategy to put you in the best light.

Tip #10 - Typically the police will not tell you what evidence they have before they interview you, but they will usually tell your lawyer. This creates a major advantage for you.

Tip #11 - If you have received a letter from the police or a notice from the court to appear, it is advisable to consult an attorney immediately before taking any action.

Tip #12 - If a court case has already been filed against you, we can still fight to have all charges dismissed through a civil compromise with the other party. The result will avoid all penalties or tarnish your good record in anyway.

Tip #13 - It is in your best interest to understand the facts of your case from both sides prior to filing an insurance claim. Although fault is not an issue, as far as the police are concerned, it is critically important to the decision of your insurance company whether or not to agree to pay the other party's claim.

Tip #14 - Be aware that investing in competent legal counsel to help protect your freedom and good record is the most important step you can take to successfully solve your legal problem.

Our law firm is dedicated to helping our clients make every effort to cooperate and work with the police to avoid hit and run charges being filed against you.

You will never encounter a more genuine, sincere, and highly talented attorney than Ron Hoffman. His experience and legal knowledge alone distinguish him as one of the foremost elite Defense attorneys in CA — But the diligence and compassion he exudes when representing your case is what truly separates Ron from all others. Hiring Ron was one of the best decisions I’ve made. Accidents happen throughout the course of ones life, and when one did, I cannot begin to explain how relieved I was having Ron & his team fighting for me in my corner. Whatever anxiety experienced surrounding the incident or trepidation rooted in the fear of the unknown, we’re relieved the first day I reached out to Hoffman & Associates. HarvestMoon Prod
I was in court for hit and run with injury and charged with 20001 pc. A misdemeanor. I cannot say enough about the legal services Ron Hoffman and his Team provided. He kept me informed every step of the way. Ron fought hard to get a civil compromise. The civil compromise was obtained at the last moment. Went in to court with the civil compromise and a plea bargain both in hand. The plea bargain he had arranged just in case. With the plea bargain no jail but I would have lost my license for one year putting me out of work. Thanks to Ron and his expertise the Judge dismissed the case. I thank God it was Ron Hoffman that I just happened to pick for my attorney. I highly recommend Ron Hoffman and associates. Ron Hoffman was always the one I talked to on the phone. Always with a calming tone. Thank You again... M Elliot
His firm took over and dealt with the police and helped me know what to say to my insurance company. After over a month and a half of work he called me and gave me the great news that he got my case dropped completely. No charges were filed and I avoided having a misdemeanor hit and run on my-record, no court, no fines. He did exactly what he said he would, his staff was very responsive to my every call and his fees and payment plan made all this affordable. I would recommend him to anyone who has a hit and run or any case... Peter J.
I can't thank him enough for the excellent results he got me and comforted me the whole time. Always answering my questions promptly, working on solutions to help this case from becoming a bigger ordeal. His staff was kind and treated me with the highest respect. They made this nightmare go away. I would recommend Hoffman and Associates to anyone in legal trouble... John S.
When I got a letter from the Court charging me with Hit and Run, my heart dropped. Mr. Hoffman told me that he would try and get the charges not to be filed by contacting the other party. His quick and skillful work restored my perfect driving record, and kept me out of Court. Words cannot express my deep appreciation... Tony C.
I want to express my most sincere thanks to you and your firm not only for resolving my case but also for caring for me as a person. You took the time to listen to my legal quandary and also listened to my personal circumstances which had affected the decisions I made in my life. You walked me through the legal process and help me feel at ease and assured me that a positive outcome was possible. You and your firm truly displayed empathy, honesty and allow me to make payments according to my financial situation. I will refer you to anyone... Hector D.
When I was accused of Hit and Run I was very scared. You not only helped me through the legal system with the Police Detective, but you protected me from this incident going any further into the Court system. I couldn't have done it without you. Thanks for making my life easier and allowing me to sleep at night... Lauren C.
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
I lived in fear for many days and had sleepless nights until the day I finally hired Attorney Hoffman. He guided me through the channels of investigation with the police department and avoided me be taken into custody and charged with a misdemeanor hit and run. He assisted me with the insurance company and negotiations with the other party. I was able to come out of this with nothing on my record, and peace of mind. Mr. Hoffman reassured me throughout the whole process, took my numerous calls and welcomed any questions throughout the day. His staff also treated me with kindness and respect. Would I recommend Mr. Hoffman, without a doubt... Lauren T.
The successful outcome of my case proves Mr. Hoffman to be a competent and trustworthy attorney. He surely made the right decisions to protect me throughout the entire process. Even after the case had been closed, he was always helpful in answering any questions I had. His fees were reasonable and worth every dollar... Hector G.
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
