Getting a Car Out of Impound In Philadelphia
Whether you were arrested and the police took your vehicle or you are facing the impoundment of your car as punishment by the courts, having your car impounded is a miserable experience. Essentially you are placed in a predicament where you're going to be without your car for some period of time and be forced to pay costly storage fees.
In many cases, the best thing you can do is to ask the police where your car has been taken to, contact the lot and ask for the bill, and pay the fees as quickly as possible in order to prevent them from increasing further and to secure the return of your car. You may be more comfortable doing this with an attorney, as your attorney will ensure you to bring the appropriate documents with you as a means to guarantee fair treatment.
In the event your vehicle is scheduled for impound, retaining counsel may be your best course of action. With the assistance of counsel you may be able to obtain a waiver from impoundment. This can be done by either (1) proving the vehicle was stolen, (2) showing that the vehicle was bought after the offense being punished - but not as a means to avoid impoundment, or (3) claiming and evidencing the vehicle as the family's sole source of transportation.
