In Illinois, driving is considered a privilege - not a right. Traffic tickets can impede your driving privilege and it is important to be aware of the process and how an attorney can help.
In Illinois, there are many different types of traffic tickets, ranging from minor speeding and texting while driving to misdemeanors like aggravated speeding and driving while license suspended or revoked. Whether the violation is considered a petty offense, misdemeanor or felony under Illinois law, it can have serious consequences, including hefty fines and fees, license suspension or jail time.
A Chicago traffic attorney can advocate for you, negotiating directly with the prosecutor and representing you in court. Instead of pleading guilty and paying the fine, your lawyer may get the ticket dismissed entirely, get the fine or fee reduced, or obtain an alternate sentence for you, such as driver’s school or community service in lieu of a fine.
Getting a traffic ticket may not seem like a big deal - but it can have a serious impact on your finances and your ability to drive. If you received a traffic ticket in Chicago, you don’t have to pay the fine and move on - you can fight it. At DDT Law Group, our team of experienced Chicago traffic ticket attorneys will work hard to help you get the best possible outcome for your Illinois traffic ticket.
If you are charged with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, then you could be facing serious criminal charges that could result in steep fines, the loss of your license, and possible jail time. Fortunately, there are a number of potential defenses to DUI charges.
It is important to take your DUI seriously as Illinois DUI laws can be particularly harsh. A skilled Chicago DUI lawyer can use their knowledge and experience handling these cases to fight for a reduction of your charges - or an outright dismissal. Depending on the facts of your case, your attorney may be able to challenge the basis for the stop, argue that the evidence in your case be suppressed, or demonstrate that the chemical breath or blood test was faulty.
Whether you have been charged with a felony or misdemeanor DUI, you will need a seasoned Chicago DUI lawyer to fight for your rights. If you have been charged with driving under the influence, reach out to the DDT Law Group today for a free consultation.
