Before you accept a damaging criminal conviction on your record, speak with one of the dedicated defense lawyers at Michael J. Snure, P.A.

Representing Orlando Area Clients In Any Fleeing And Eluding Case

FleeingCharges for fleeing and eluding are frequently added onto another offense, such as a traffic violation. There are essentially four categories of fleeing and eluding under Florida law:

  • Fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer
  • Fleeing and eluding a law enforcement vehicle with lights and siren activated and insignia clearly displayed
  • Driving at high speeds or in an unsafe manner while fleeing and eluding a law enforcement vehicle with lights and siren activated
  • Causing serious injury to or the death of another person, fleeing the scene of an accident or causing property damage while fleeing and eluding a law enforcement vehicle with lights and siren activated

Each of these offenses carries increasingly severe levels of penalties if you are convicted. We will conduct a thorough examination of your case and work closely with you to gain a complete understanding of the events leading up to your arrest.

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, it may be possible to argue that you were not certain that it was a police vehicle or that you drove at a reasonable speed to a well-lit area where you were more comfortable pulling over. We will review all of the evidence that the prosecution intends to use against you and develop the strongest possible defense on your behalf.
