Aggravated Fleeing and Eluding in Broward County Reduced to Misdemeanor by South Florida Defense Attorneys

Charges Dropped for Fleeing and Eluding Case in North Lauderdale

Outcome of Fleeing and Eluding Case:

We were able to reduce Maliq’s felony charge of Aggravated Fleeing and Eluding to a misdemeanor for resisting arrest. Instead of going to jail and becoming a convicted felon, Maliq was put on probation for six months with the requirements of attending aggressive driving school and completing community service.

Client Concerns about Fleeing and Eluding Charge:

Because Maliq fled from the officer, the punishment resulting from a guilty verdict at trial would be a mandatory conviction and a 1 year driver’s license suspension.  This worried Maliq, as he would become a convicted felon for a simple misunderstanding.

Facts on Fleeing and Eluding Case:

Maliq E. was driving in North Lauderdale one night going 45 miles per hour in a 35 miles per hour zone. The officer did not stop Maliq until he made a right turn on red without slowing down, as no cars were approaching in Maliq’s direction. Maliq pulled over and waited for the officer to get out of his vehicle and talk to him, but the officer stayed in his vehicle and did not signal that Maliq was in trouble. Just as the officer was just getting out of his vehicle, Maliq drove away because the officer had made no indication that he would speak to or arrest Maliq. The police department identified and arrived at the home of Maliq’s mother, Annette, as the vehicle was registered in her name. She called Maliq and he indicated that he had stopped for the police, but left when they did not take any action. The officers located and arrested Maliq, and he was charged with a felony for fleeing and eluding the police.

Strategy of Attack on Fleeing and Eluding Case:

Maliq hired us to replace his first attorney because he felt that his first lawyer wasn’t fighting hard enough for him.  We immediately sprung into action, reviewing the reports and videos, which agreed with Maliq’s version of events. We spent the majority of the time working on Maliq’s case with the prosecutor in negotiations.

I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
