Cited with a traffic violation in Chicago?

Most traffic violations will not result in steep fines and jail time. They may, however, cause you to accumulate points on your driving record, which can result in license suspension and high insurance rates. If you are a commercial driver, your livelihood could become a court’s decision. By contacting an experienced Chicago criminal attorney, you may be able to reduce or even eliminate these penalties.

More serious traffic violations include DUI and driving with a suspended license. The penalties for these violations may include jail time and loss of driving privileges. Don’t take chances with your future liberty, speak with an attorney today and find out your best legal option after a traffic violation.

Speeding tickets are a serious matter in Illinois, and state lawmakers have increased penalties for those who they consider are endangering others on the streets and roads by driving over the posted speed limit. In fact, should you be accused of traveling over 40 miles per hour above the speed limit, the offense is a Class A Misdemeanor with a possible year in jail, a $2,500 fine and other penalties if convicted. It is crucial that you have a strong traffic defense lawyer assisting you in such cases. Cases in which speeding or reckless driving occurred in a construction zone are also a serious legal matter and fighting the charge could result in a case dismissed or reduced charge. You can be assured that the attorney will seek out any option to defend you, including cross-examining the officer involved.

He understood that I made a mistake but it didn’t define who I was...

"I am so appreciative of the help and support that I received from Michael and his team members! They truly helped me figure out my case and I got outstanding results. If anyone can help you get great results, it’s Michael. I had an immigration issue as well and he worked with my immigration lawyer to help find the best solution. He understood that I made a mistake but it didn’t define who I was. I definitely don’t want to go through any of this again but I’m glad that I had the support to get through this."
