DUI Hit-And-Run

Leaving The Scene Of A DUI

While many cases of DUI arrest occur as a result of an officer pulling over a vehicle, when an accident occurs, the accused may leave the scene before law enforcement officials arrive. In these cases, the accused will likely be facing multiple criminal charges, some of which may include:

  • Hit-and-run or leaving the scene of the incident (Colorado law dictates that parties involved in an accident must wait for police to arrive so they can each report the details of the incident.)
  • DUI or driving while impaired, based on witness statements and the fact that this is one of the primary reasons that police suspect an individual leaves the scene of an accident
  • Vehicular assault, should another individual be injured as a result of the accident
  • Vehicular manslaughter, should another be killed as a result of the accident

Drunk Driving Hit-And-Run Defense

Having the strongest possible defense to charges of leaving the scene of a DUI (or drunk driving hit-and-run charges) will be critical to minimizing the chances of conviction and the resulting penalties, which can include:

  • Lengthy prison sentences and subsequent parole terms
  • Permanent criminal records
  • Crippling fines, which can be compounded if an injured party decides to file a civil case against the offender
  • Community service and/or mandatory attendance to alcohol education programs
  • Other, non-court-ordered punishments, such as expensive insurance premiums, loss of jobs, future inability to secure gainful employment and possibly damage to one's family

In building defense cases for our clients accused of leaving the scene of a DUI or an alleged DUI-related accident, our legal team may argue, depending the nature of an individual's case, that the accused was not intoxicated or that there has been a case of mistaken identity (i.e., someone other than our client committed the crime).

“ Fleschlaw rocks!!! ”

I had a DUI that I thought was bogus. I got Kevin and his staff on it right away. I never lost my license and he got the case dismissed at the motions hearing. Kevin told me what he thought would happen and he delivered. – John

“ Fleschlaw really helped me ”

I had two driving under suspension tickets pending. I thought for sure I was going to Jail. Kevin was able to help me understand the DMV process, get my driving privilege back and resolve the two tickets so I didn't go to Jail and I can drive again. Amazing... – Juan

“ Kevin can try a case!!!”

Kevin handled my criminal case. The DA would not make me any offers and so we went to trial. The trial took all day but Kevin made their star witness look incredible and a liar. The jury came back fast - not guilty. Kevin was great in trial!!! - Larry

“ Delighted!!! ”

I was very, very happy with the service I received from Kevin and delighted with the results. I certainly recommend Kevin to anyone that will need his type of service. I was looking at the possibility of losing my license and not only did I keep my license, but I still have points to spare! Delighted!!! - Marc

“ Fantastic Results ”

I got charged with a DUI and I didn't think the police officer should have contacted me to begin with. I knew I needed a lawyer to make the arguments for me. I interviewed several lawyers and felt comfortable with Kevin. He had to file motions and then have a hearing on the issue. His arguments were right on and the Judge granted my requests. The case was dismissed. – Wanda

“ Fleschlaw is the real deal ”

I was on probation for a DUI and I got another one. I freaked out and called Kevin. He calmed me down and worked for over 9 months and finally got my new case reduced to a reckless driving. I hate court but Kevin and his staff really worked hard and never gave up. In the end, Fleschlaw exceeded my expectations. – Derick

“ Real Lawyer that Fights for You ”

I looked around for a lawyer for a awhile. I met with Kevin and explained my case. We went to court and he got the case dismissed. He is the best. - Jimmy

“ Very good lawyer very good results ”

I was charged with DUI. I thought my life was over. Kevin met with me and really wanted to know what happened. After hearing how I was arrested, he thought the officer should not have contacted me. He was able to get my case dismissed. – Ron

“ Great Attorney ”

He was very helpful in my criminal case. He helped me stay out of jail. He is very friendly and I liked the people in his office. – Criminal Defense Client
