Vehicle Crimes

Criminal Vehicle Violations such as Hit-and-Run, Reckless Driving, Driving on a Suspended License and Vehicular Manslaughter are among the most serious traffic-related violations. Silveira Law also provides expert defense in these types of Criminal Cases. It is highly recommended that if you are charged with a Felony or Misdemeanor violation of the California Vehicle Code, that you retain a Bay Area Criminal Defense Attorney that focuses on these types of offenses; keep in mind that a Criminal Defense Lawyer who is a general practitioner, without a focus on these types of cases, may not be able to obtain the same positive results for you as Silveira Law.

Expert Vehicle Code Attorneys
When charged with a Felony or Misdemeanor violation, having knowledgeable and experienced counsel on your side is crucial.  Felony offenses, such as Hit-and-Run with Injury and Evading an Officer, subject you to potential long-term incarceration in Jail or even Prison.  Even misdemeanor violations, such as Reckless Driving and Suspended License carry potential Jail sentences.  There are many ways to attack these types of charges, and many positive results that can be achieved.  Some sample outcomes from past Felony and Misdemeanor criminal cases that Silveira Law has handled include:

  • Reduction of Felony Offenses to Misdemeanor Offenses with No Jail Time
  • Reduction of Misdemeanor Offenses to simple Traffic Ticket Infractions
  • Diversion or Deferred Entry of Judgment (which means dismissal after maintaining a clean record and/or attending classes)
  • Complete Dismissal Prior to Trial
  • Not Guilty Verdict After a Trial

We actively research all current Vehicle Crime information and court cases as they become available, so we can continue to win cases for our clients. We are also very familiar with the various Bay Area Criminal Courts where these types of cases are filed – we know the players and we know the game.
