Charlotte, NC asked in Criminal Law for Virginia

Q: I need to know if I need to get a lawyer or what steps should i take

I got a ticket for a hit and run. But I didnt think I backed into anybody. But apparently 4 people witnessed it. But there was no damage to my car. The parking lot is the tiniest lot I've seen people are inches away from people. I dont know about the other persons vehicle. But I just need to know if I need to get a lawyer there were no cameras in the lot.

A: If you're charged with hit and run you should definitely hire an attorney. You should also not speak to any law enforcement officials without first speaking with an attorney.
