Sometimes Accidents do Happen

Sometimes accidents do happen, and the owner of the other vehicle is not around. While parking at a shopping center, Mr. Fernandez's client accidentally hit another car, but the owner the vehicle was not present to exchange information. After waiting for some time, he left to go about his business. His car was towed by the responding officer and held pending investigation.

Mr. Fernandez was able to release the car and resolve the matter for his client without an arrest or charges being filed. If you, or someone you know, is being investigated or formally accused of a crime Contact Mr. Fernandez to set up a free consultation.
