Fleeing the Scene

Pre-Filing Defense for Fleeing a DUI

Arrests generally take place in one of two ways. Either the police have probable cause to arrest someone immediately, or they gather evidence first, making the arrest later. When searching for someone who fled, police employ the second method, gathering evidence.

Time is of the essence, so let us get to work for you right away. Before the police formally make their arrest, we may be able to prepare a pre-filing defense. This is a process where we challenge the evidence, possibly cutting off an arrest or prosecution. The sooner you contact us, the quicker we can start working on this defense.
