People v. MG (HIt and Run)

William W. Bruzzo

Case Conclusion Date:July 21, 2011

Practice Area:Criminal Defense

Outcome:Dismissed

Description:I was charged with one count of hit and run (Vehicle Code Section 20002(a)) for hitting another vehicle while driving and not stopping to exchange information. My situation was complicated by the fact that a witness described my driving prior to striking the other vehicle as erratic. In addition, I had been previously convicted twice for driving under the influence of alcohol. My maximum punishment for the hit and run charge could have been up to 6 months in jail. I hired Attorney William W. Bruzzo to represent me because of his familiarity with the courts and district attorneys in Orange County as well as his success with hit and run cases. Mr. Bruzzo was able to negotiate a deal where the case got DISMISSED once I completed a class and entered a plea. As a result, I do not have a conviction for this charge. I am very grateful for Mr. Bruzzo because such a conviction could have hurt my employment situation. I would highly recommend him for any criminal or hit and run matter.
