*Practice Tip*

Send someone down to the police station to get the police report if you have a large case with a possible liability dispute. You really want to figure out who the witnesses and get their stories sooner rather than later. The police are often not racing to return these to lawyers as quickly as they possibly can.

Dear Sir or Madam:

Please send the police report for the above-captioned accident.  Enclosed please find a check payable to Prince George’s County Police Department in the amount of $10.00 to cover fees. 

Accordingly, would you kindly process my request for a copy of the accident report for the above described traffic accident as soon as possible.


Very truly yours,


Courtney Hooten
Legal Assistant to Ronald V. Miller, Jr.
