Illinois Speeding Ticket Lawyer
Police in Illinois issue tens of thousands of traffic tickets every year. Generally, traffic tickets are classified as petty offenses that are punishable by a fine only. However, a conviction for a traffic citation can have other consequences — including the possible loss of your driving privileges.
Paying a traffic fine is an admission of guilt, and by paying you could face unforeseen penalties. Before you pay a traffic fine, call Miller & Pugh Law Offices, P.C. at 888-334-0119.
We represent clients in cases involving all types of traffic violations, including:
- Failure to yield
- Driving while suspended
- Failure to notify (leaving the scene of an accident)
- Driving without insurance
- Other traffic violations
In many cases which our firm has handled, we have been able to get traffic tickets dismissed or reduced to an offense carrying lesser penalties. We will seek the best possible outcome for you.
The Consequences of a Traffic Ticket
A traffic ticket can have far-reaching and negative effects on your life:
- If you are over 21 years old and receive three convictions in a year, your license will be suspended.
- If you are under 21 years of age and receive a mere two convictions within a two year period, your license will be suspended.
Additionally, petty traffic tickets may also lead to a suspension of your driving privileges without you even realizing it. The county prosecutor does not have an obligation to notify you of the possible consequences of a conviction. Certain offenses, such as passing a stopped school bus or failing to change lanes as you approach a stopped emergency vehicle with its lights flashing, carry a suspension for a single offense.
How We Can Help
Miller & Pugh Law Offices, P.C. can represent you in court to challenge the basis for the ticket and make the state prove its case. Our goal will be to get the ticket dismissed or reduced to an offense carrying lesser fines and penalties.
