Charges Dropped for DUI with Property Damage and Leaving the Scene of an Accident Case in Fort Lauderdale

Outcome of DUI and Leaving the Scene of an Accident Case:

After conducting numerous depositions, reviewing the discovery, and speaking to the prosecutors on this matter – our client Paul M’s charges of DUI with property damage and leaving the scene of an accident with property damage were dropped down to one count of reckless driving.

Client Concerns about DUI and Leaving the Scene of an Accident Charge:

Paul was worried that this incident would stay on his record and was very pessimistic about the outcome before he found the Rossen Law Firm. After watching numerous client videos and reviews from past clients on our platforms, Paul saw how the Rossen Law Firm helped people in similar, and worse, situations get the outcome they wanted, if not better.

Facts about DUI and Leaving the Scene of an Accident Case:

Paul was charged with DUI with property damage and leaving the scene of an accident with property damage in Fort Lauderdale. The evidence showed that after Paul accidentally struck another vehicle, both drivers waited on scene for a policeman to arrive. A law enforcement officer arrived on scene, instructed the parties to exchange information, and thereafter go their separate ways. Minutes later, after he was already at his home with his car turned off, parked in his driveway, a different police officer came up to Paul and demanded that he exit the vehicle. Apparently, the driver of the other vehicle wanted Paul investigated for driving intoxicated and claims that Paul left the scene without a full exchange of information. Paul was strong-armed into speaking to the officer and participating in “voluntary” field sobriety exercises. Paul informed the officer that he drank at a family function prior to driving. The reports and testimony on how well Paul performed on the field sobriety exercises were all over the place – no video was used to capture his performance. We found contradicting evidence that there were “zero” coordination issues with Paul – and other testimony that Paul could barely stand-up. We found some evidence that there was a “very strong” odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from Paul’s breath – and other testimony that there was “no odor” of an alcoholic beverage emitting from his breath. Paul was arrested for DUI with property damage and leaving the scene of an accident with property damage.

Strategy of Attack on DUI and Leaving the Scene of an Accident Case:

It was our position that Paul had several rights afforded to him under the constitution violated during this incident. Furthermore, the driver of the other vehicle failed to appear for deposition and court proceedings for some time.  We aggressively pushed the case forward knowing the prosecutor would have trouble proving each and every element of the crime.

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.
