SPEEDING, IMPROPER LANE USAGE AND OTHER TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS
Defend Your Freedom And Your License
Have you been charged with driving on suspended or revoked driver’s license? Or have you been ticketed for a traffic violation such as speeding or other traffic violation? Or have you been ticketed for a more serious traffic violation such as possession of open alcohol while driving or reckless driving?
Driving on a suspended or revoked driver’s license can no longer be considered just a “traffic violation” because in Illinois, prosecutors are becoming more aggressive in prosecuting these cases and in many cases, prosecutors are seeking harsh sentences. In Illinois, a conviction for a misdemeanor offense of driving on a suspended or revoked driver’s license can be punished by up to 364 days in the county jail plus fines and court costs. If you are charged with a felony offense of driving on a suspended or revoked driver’s license, this is a very serious charge, and if you are found guilty, prosecutors routinely ask for a sentence in the penitentiary.
But there are defenses that can be used to fight the charges of driving on a suspended or revoked driver’s license. For example, if the police did not have a valid legal basis for stopping you the charges can be dismissed. Also, with my years of experience and knowledge, for those clients who are looking to resolve their cases, I have often been able to get a favorable disposition on terms that are acceptable to my clients.
If you have been charged with a misdemeanor traffic violation such as reckless driving, or open alcohol, these are serious charges and a conviction could result in the loss of your license or possible jail time. But there are defenses to these charges that include challenging the reason for the stop of your vehicle by police or by showing that the prosecutor cannot prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt.
A “minor” traffic ticket, such as speeding, is not always a minor matter. In fact, speeding 25 miles per hour over the limit is now a misdemeanor and punishment for this offense is much more severe than it used to be. If not handled properly a “minor” traffic violation such as speeding or other traffic infraction could affect your driver’s license and your insurance rates. If you are charged with a traffic violation, I will work to obtain the best possible outcome and to ensure that your driver’s license is not affected.
