Veteran Sees Hit & Run Charges Reduced to Zero Points

On Behalf of | Jan 4, 2019 | Case Results, Criminal Defense, Firm News, Traffic

With rising insurance premiums and the possibility of having your license suspended, the importance of protecting your driving record in Michigan should not be ignored. For example, when a military veteran was charged with misdemeanor leaving the scene of an accident involving property damage, careless driving, and disobeying a traffic signal, he knew that he needed very effective legal representation.

Knowing the man was in danger of a criminal conviction on his otherwise clean criminal record, and the addition of up to six points on his driving record, attorney Tiffany DeBruin acted fast. By negotiating with the prosecutor, attorney DeBruin was able to have the careless driving and misdemeanor hit and run charges dismissed. This alleviated the most serious aspect of his situation, but attorney DeBruin went a step further and had the traffic signal citation amended to a lesser infraction for zero points. By working with an experienced traffic attorney, it was if the entire incident never happened with respect to his driving or criminal record.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
