We Handle All Criminal Charges Involving Motor Vehicle Accidents

Accidents, even tragic accidents, do happen. Just because you were the driver and a death occurred does not mean you are guilty of vehicular homicide or manslaughter. Conducting a thorough investigation into your case, we will explore all opportunities to help you build your defense. With over four decades of experience in criminal law, we have the resources needed to handle a wide range of criminal charges involving motor vehicle accidents, including:

  • Hit-and-run accidents
  • DUI and drug-related accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Crosswalk accidents

There is a major difference between gross negligence and ordinary negligence. It is the difference between not being able to stop in time when you were unable to see a person on a crosswalk, and hitting a pedestrian because you were drunk or busy sending a text message. Even a simple undetected mechanical condition such as a blowout could, if set forth as a defense, be a difference of years in a prison sentence, or none at all. In addition to building a defense for an acquittal, it is important to figure out a way to minimize the potential consequences.

The traffic reconstructionist expert that we consult with in such cases is the former head of the California Highway Patrol Multidisciplinary Accident Investigation Team ( MAIT) program for Northern California. His knowledge and skill will be available to help in your defense.
