Experienced Illinois Traffic Violation Defense Attorneys

 

Most people believe that when they receive a traffic citation they should just mail in the fine and be done with it.  Mailing in the fine is simple and many people do not consider hiring a traffic violation defense attorney.  However, if a person takes into account the Illinois Traffic Violation Point System (which assigns points against the drivers license of a person convicted of a moving violation) and that the next Traffic Violation might cost them considerably more and may even result in a driver’s license suspension, it is sound advice to consult with an attorney . At the Traffic Violation Defense Law Office of Meyerson Law, LTD., we urge you to consider the risks and costs of mailing in your ticket or going to court without legal counsel.  At the very least, you should consult with an attorney regarding your legal rights and impact on your driving privileges.

A DUI conviction carries with it serious consequences and can result in a large fine, imprisonment and a Driver’s License Revocation.

David S. Meyerson, a former DUI prosecutor who understands the rapidly evolving laws in relation to Illinois DUIs and resulting driving suspensions can map out an aggressive legal strategy to help obtain the best result possible. We offer representation for clients charged with or arrested for DUI in most northern Illinois counties.

Generally, a driver with a good driving record can avoid a conviction for Aggravated Speeding. This is accomplished by plea negotiations with the prosecution. Many times, Aggravated Speeding can be reduced to a petty speeding offense in return for supervision with a fine and court costs.

Most people don't know that going more than 26 miles over a posted speed limit in Illinois can land you in jail for up to six months and going 35 miles over a posted speed limit can land you in jail for up to a year.

If you are charged with the offense of Driving on a Suspended Drivers License or Driving on a Revoked Drivers License, you likely need an attorney to represent you in court. Attorney David S. Meyerson defends clients charged with a 6-303 violations.

In Illinois, there are numerous reasons why a person's driving privileges may be suspended or revoked. It could be something as simple as too many unpaid parking tickets or toll violations or something as complicated as a DUI conviction or a conviction for a felony involving a motor vehicle.

If you have received an Illinois Uniform Traffic Citation such as a Speeding Ticket, or, have been charged with a Traffic Violation Offense such as Reckless Driving, the lawyers at our firm can help. Contact the law offices of Meyerson Law, LTD., to discuss the consequences and possible penalties. It will not cost you anything to schedule a consultation with us and you will find that it is worth the effort. We have helped many drivers beat Traffic Violation Charges in Northern Illinois in Cook County, Lake County, DuPage County, Kane County, McHenry County and Will County.

 

Traffic Violation and Younger Drivers (Under 21)

 

In Illinois, if you are under 21, just two moving traffic violations can result in a Driver’s License Suspension. Beginning in 2006, a driver is only eligible to receive supervision twice in a 12-month period and a third violation during a 12-month period will result in a mandatory conviction. That comes in addition to a fine. Have you considered the long-term costs of insurance premiums? Do you still think a good traffic violation defense is not worth the effort? Our attorneys have decades of combined experience protecting people’s rights and defending people against the serious consequences of a traffic violation. We can help you keep your record clean.
