Testimonials

Minor Traffic Accident, Matter Dropped, Very Happy Client

I was involved in a minor traffic accident with another vehicle and left the scene without exchanging information (license, insurance) with the other party; the police soon thereafter contacted me to discuss the situation and I was informed they were investigating me for Hit and Run (Vehicle Code Section 20002(a)). I was very concerned about this because I am studying for a profession which will not tolerate any sort of conviction or charge especially for a crime of this nature.
I found Attorney Will Bruzzo on the internet and I spoke to him about the matter. He told me he would try to handle the matter informally with the police BEFORE it got to the District Attorney’s office and became a criminal case. Mr. Bruzzo informed me he had done this many times before and had been successful. I could also see from his many testimonials that he had successfully handled many cases just like mine.
Mr. Bruzzo told me not to speak with the police and that he would speak to them for me. Mr. Bruzzo then began negotiating with the police. After a short while he made a deal with the police that once I paid for the other side’s damages the matter would not be pursued. I then made payment and Mr. Bruzzo got the victim to sign a document waiving all rights to pursue me and indicating she did not want criminal prosecution. The police agency also agreed that they would drop the matter and close the case without sending it to the District Attorney’s office.
As such, not only was I never convicted of the charge, I was never even charged and I never had to appear in court. I am very happy with this result and I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any hit and run or criminal matter.

Bruzzo gets hit and run charges droppped

I was involved in a minor accident and left the scene without exchanging information with the other party or calling the CHP … I am told this is a violation of Vehicle Code Section 20002(a), Hit and Run.
Even before the police contacted me I called Attorney Will Bruzzo because I could tell he had extensive experience with these kinds of cases.
Mr. Bruzzo told me NOT to contact the police and that he would take care of that. Mr. Bruzzo then negotiated with the police.
In the end Mr. Bruzzo was able to work out a deal where my insurance took care of the damages to the other vehicle and the police agreed NOT TO PURSUE the case and DROP the charges.
As such, I was never arrested, never charged with an offense and never had to go to court.
I am very grateful to Mr. Bruzzo for this result and I would enthusiastically recommend him for any hit and run or criminal matter.

Civil Compromise Despite Past Convictions, DA objects, Bruzzo's Client Very Happy

I was charged with vehicle code section 20002(a) [Hit and Run] a misdemeanor for leaving the scene of an accident without exchanging information with the other party. I also has three previous convictions for Drunk Driving. In addition in the hit and run case several people said I evaded their attempt to stop me and one complained I smelled of alcohol.
I hired attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me because of his experience with Hit and Run cases. Mr. Bruzzo actually started representing me before the charges were filed. He handled discussions with the police and had me remain silent. He then went to court and spoke with the District Attorney and the Judge.
Initially both the District Attorney and the Judge were against a Civil Compromise because of my record[this an agreement where criminal charges are dropped if the victim agrees to accept compensation instead of prosecution and the Judge also agrees].
Mr. Bruzzo ultimately persuaded the Judge and brought the victim to court; when the Judge heard that the victim [who Mr. Bruzzo had been speaking with on my behalf] wanted compensation instead of prosecution she went along with the DISMISSAL by civil compromise over the objection of the District Attorney. I am very happy with this result and I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any Hit and Run or criminal matter.

Case Closed, No Charges, No Arrest

I was involved in a minor accident with another vehicle. I got out of my car and spoke with the other person but when I learned that they were going to call the police I panicked and fled the scene. My case was then sent to the Orange County Sheriff for investigation for hit and run [Vehicle Code Section 20002(a)]. The Sherriff soon contacted me.  I then spoke with and hired Attorney Will Bruzzo who told me not to speak to the police. Mr. Bruzzo has successfully represented many people charged with the same crime. Instead Mr. Bruzzo spoke with the Sheriff who gave him the information for the people I hit. A short time later Mr. Bruzzo made an arrangement with the police and the victim that once I paid for the damages that case would be closed. Mr. Bruzzo then had the victim acknowledge payment and express in written form that they did not want prosecution. That agreement was sent to the Sheriff who then CLOSED the case. The matter was never sent to the District Attorney as such I have no arrest, no charge and no conviction on this matter. I am very grateful to Mr. Bruzzo for this result and I would enthusiastically recommend him for any hit and run or criminal matter.

Hit and Run Charges Dismissed

I was alleged to have committed a Hit and Run [Vehicle Code Section 20002(a)] a misdemeanor offense. Someone told the police that I struck their vehicle and then left the scene and ignored their efforts to get me to stop.

I denied hitting anyone and could not recall anyone trying to get me to stop. I was very concerned about this charge because it is a crime of moral turpitude and could be interpreted as me being dishonest which could not be further from the truth.

I hired Attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me in this matter. Mr. Bruzzo believed me and went to work trying to get the case dismissed. He showed the District Attorney (DA) that the damages for the other vehicle had been paid by my employer’s insurance. He also showed proof of my good character. But the DA still wanted me to plead guilty.

After much discussion with the District Attorney Mr. Bruzzo got them to DISMISS the case once I did community service and gave DNA.

I am very happy with this result and I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any Hit and Run or criminal matter.

Bruzzo hired for second case, successfully negotiates civil compromise

I was involved in a minor traffic collision and left the scene without stopping or exchanging information with the other party. The other driver got my plate number and called police. The police later contacted me and I confessed to driving and leaving the scene of the accident. My attorney later advised me that I should not have spoken to the police at all and should I have had my attorney call them, since it would have made it more difficult for the police to make a case against me without my confession.

To make matters worse, the driver of the vehicle I hit informed the police he wanted me prosecuted. I soon received a letter from the District Attorney with a court date for a charge of Hit and Run [Vehicle Code Section 20002(a)] a misdemeanor.

 I had previously used Mr. William Bruzzo as my lawyer on a previous case and so I hired Mr. Bruzzo to represent me on this matter. Also, it was my understanding that Mr. Bruzzo has managed to get excellent results in other hit and run cases.

Mr. Bruzzo appeared in court without me and got the court to agree to a civil compromise.  This is where the case gets dismissed if the victim of the crime is agreeable.

Mr. Bruzzo then negotiated with the victim and got him to agree to accept compensation for his damages and sign a letter telling the court he was satisfied with the compensation and did not wish prosecution. This is despite the fact that the victim had previously told the police he wanted me prosecuted!

Mr. Bruzzo then went to court with the letter signed by the victim and the Judge DISMISSED THE CASE!  I never pled guilty and I never had to take a class or give DNA.

I am very happy with Mr. Bruzzo who once again got me an excellent result. I was concerned because hit and run is a crime of moral turpitude and can make it difficult to get a job.  I would strongly recommend him for any hit and run or criminal case.

Successful Hit and Run Case - No Charges Filed

A member of my family was involved in a collision and left the scene without calling the authorities. I was advised that this offense could be charged under Vehicle Code Section 20002(a), Hit and Run.

I was very concerned about this and found that Attorney Will Bruzzo had extensive experience with these types of cases.

The investigating officer wanted to speak with my family but Mr. Bruzzo intervened and spoke with the officer himself.

In addition to speaking with the police Mr. Bruzzo told me he would try and resolve the case without having the matter go to court and without filing charges.

My vehicle was insured and Mr. Bruzzo passed this on to the Officer. Within a few weeks the police officer advised Mr. Bruzzo that the case was closed and that no charges would be filed.

So, not only did no one from my family have to go to court but the case never even made it to the District Attorney’s Office. Mr. Bruzzo was able to stop the case in its tracks and avoid any charges whatsoever.

I am very happy with this result and as such I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any Hit and Run or criminal matter.

I was involved in an accident and left the scene without contact the authorities. Also, three of my passengers experienced injuries and two of my passengers told the police I was driving too fast.  Also, I did not have a driver’s license when the accident occurred. I was charged with Vehicle Code Section 20002(a) [Hit and Run]; Vehicle Code Section 23103(b) [Reckless Driving] and Vehicle Code Section 12500 [Driving without a valid license].

A friend of mine had used Attorney Will Bruzzo previously and said he was a good lawyer. Mr. Bruzzo went right to work on my case. He got my three passengers to write a letter for me and he got the Hit and Run DISMISSED through CIVIL COMPROMISE. He then convinced the District Attorney to DISMISS the Reckless Driving charge. I pled guilty to driving without a license as an infraction and paid a fine. [Defendant facing up to 1 year in jail on original charges].

I am very happy with this result and I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any Hit and Run [Vehicle Code Section 20002(a)], Reckless Driving [Vehicle Code Section 23103(b)] or other criminal matter.

I was charged with Vehicle Code section 20002(a) [Hit and Run] and Vehicle Code Section 14601.2(a) [Driving on a Suspended License]. These charges arose when I hit another vehicle, caused damage and fled the scene without contacting the police or the owner of the vehicle. When the police caught up with me they discovered that my license was suspended. Also, I had previously been convicted for driving on a suspended license 6 months previously. I was also on probation for three other cases. I hired Attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me because of his experience with these types of cases and his familiarity with the Courts, Judges and District Attorney in Orange County. I was looking at 60 days in Jail initially. However, Mr. Bruzzo was able to negotiate a deal where I paid money on old fines and got my sentenced reduced to 30 days with a recommendation from the judge for home confinement which means I should do NO JAIL TIME. He also persuaded the Prosecutor to DISMISS the hit and run charge, [Vehicle Code Section 20002(a)] even thought they could easily prove it. I am very grateful to Mr. Bruzzo for this result and I would enthusiastically recommend him for any hit and run, suspended license or criminal matter.

I was involved in a minor accident between my vehicle and another vehicle. I panicked and left the scene without leaving a note or calling the CHP. Someone got my license and called the police. Soon thereafter, I received a call from the police investigating me for a violation of the Vehicle Code Section 20002(a) Hit and Run.

I immediately called and hired Attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me because of his experience in dealing with similar cases. My personal situation was such that I could not afford to be charged with this offense let alone convicted.

Mr. Bruzzo understood my situation and set to work speaking with the police in an effort to persuade them not to file the case with the District Attorney by coming to an agreement with the victim. The police and Mr. Bruzzo agreed that if the victim was satisfied with the arrangement of compensation for his damages they would elect not to pursue the case. This situation is also known as a civil compromise.

Mr. Bruzzo then set to work negotiating with the victim; in the end, the victim agreed to accept compensation and sign an agreement indicating he was satisfied with the arrangement. The police then informed us that they would not be pursuing the case and that the matter was closed.

This result was an enormous relief to me because my situation was dire if the police charged me. Thanks to Mr. Bruzzo I was never charged, never went to court and maintained a clean record.  As such I am very happy with this result and I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any Hit and Run or Criminal matter.

I was charged with vehicle code section 20002(a), Hit and Run. I hired Attorney Will Bruzzo to represent because of his experience with similar cases in Orange County. In my situation the damages were very small. Mr. Bruzzo argued that my lack of a record and minor damages deserved a dismissal. He negotiated with the District Attorney and they agreed to DISMISS the case once I completed community service. I am very grateful for this result and I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any Hit and Run case or criminal matter.

I was charged with Vehicle Code Section 20002(a) [Hit and Run]. I was involved in an accident, panicked and fled the scene. The other driver got my license plate and soon the police contacted me. I hired attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me because of his experience with hit and run cases and his familiarity with the courts and District Attorney in Orange County. Mr. Bruzzo spoke to the police for me and later spoke with the District Attorney in Court. I was concerned with the outcome of this case because I was already on probation for an offense and the hit and run could have violated my probation and sent me to jail. So, Mr. Bruzzo negotiated with the Judge for a Civil Compromise. The Judge agreed to this disposition and the case was DISMISSED once I compensated the person I hit for his damages. I am very grateful for this result and I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any similar matter.

A family member was involved in a hit and run (Vehicle Code Section 20002(a)) with my vehicle. The police had sent me a letter asking me to make contact with them but no case had been filed in court yet. I did not want to get the person in trouble but I also did not want to get accused of something I did not do. As such, I hired Attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me in this matter as he has tremendous experience with hit and run type cases. Mr. Bruzzo contacted the police for me and negotiated with them.

I drove intoxicated, had an accident, left the scene [without contacting authorities] and then ran from the police [and resisted them] when they arrived on scene. My blood alcohol level was a .24 [three times the legal limit]. I was charged with Drunk Driving (Vehicle Code Sections 23152(a), (b), Hit and Run (Vehicle Code Section 20002(a) and Resisting Arrest (Penal Code Section 148(a)(1). I hired Attorney William W. Bruzzo to represent me because of his experience with these types of charges. I was concerned with having these charges on my record. Mr. Bruzzo proved to be relentless in trying to get me the best deal possible. In the end, he used his familiarty with the District Attorney to get the resisting arrest (Penal Code Section 148(a)(1)) and the hit and run (Vehicle Code Section 20002(a) both  DISMISSED. This kept the most serious crimes off my record. In addition, despite having a .24 blood alcohol level he won my DMV hearing!

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 convinced the court to give me a CIVIL COMPROMISE wherein Mr. Bruzzo spoke with the person I hit and managed to get him to agree not to pursue charges in exchange for being fully compensated for his damages. The District Attorney then DISMISSED the case against me. Notably, I NEVER APPEARED IN COURT as Mr. Bruzzo managed to get the case dismissed without my ever having to appear. I would highly recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any hit and run or criminal matter.

Client was accused of violating Vehicle Code Section 20002 (Hit and Run) out of the Orange County Superior Court when he collided with another vehicle, causing property damage and then failed to stop to exchange information. Despite the fact the client was clearly in violation of the law Attorney William W. Bruzzo used his familiarity with the court and the local Deputy District Attorney to negotiate a deal where the Defendant completed 15 days of work for the county and the case was DISMISSED. Were it not for Mr. Bruzzo’s skill in negotiating this agreement the client would have had a conviction, been subject to fines and faced up to 6 months of jail.
