Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Yes, the charge which you are facing is very serious so you do want to retain a criminal defense attorney. They will work the case and represent you and defend the charge. Now, what this women and man did were illegal as they stole from you but it does not justify chasing after them and hitting your car with theirs. However, the issue is going to be if they cooperate with the State. I say this because these people are likely engaged in criminal conduct. She may be a prostitute and he may be her pimp or trafficker and engaged in illegal business and if they cooperate with the State, they will avail themselves to possible criminal prosecution for themselves which they may want to avoid. Your attorney will depose them and see if they can find information on them an attacked their credibility and character.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
