Oak Lawn Traffic Violation Attorneys
If you’ve received a petty, misdemeanor, or felony traffic offense, our experienced. Oak Lawn Traffic Violation Attorneys can help. Punishment for these violations can vary from an inexpensive fine and court costs, to serious jail time for felony offenses.
Where Your Case Will Be Heard
When an Oak Lawn Police Officer tickets you for a traffic offense, your case will be heard at the Cook County Fifth District Courthouse in Bridgeview, Illinois. If you have a pending misdemeanor or felony offense, your case will most likely be on the first floor of the courthouse. However, some misdemeanor offenses are heard in Rooms 207 or 208 on the Second Floor of the building.
Petty traffic offenses, where you are only facing a fine and court costs, are heard on the Second Floor. Court costs are normally $214 for petty traffic offenses. Court costs may vary for misdemeanor and felony offenses. If you are found innocent at trial, or your ticket is dismissed, you will not be assessed court costs or fines.
As Oak Lawn Traffic Violation Attorneys, our goal is to put you in the best possible position to beat a case or get a ticket dismissed. If you are assessed a fine, we do everything we can to ensure your driver’s license and/or vehicle insurance is affected as little as possible. Many times, this includes Court Supervision, where a sentence is deferred, and no conviction is entered against your driving record. In addition, the disposition is not reported to your insurance company, meaning your insurance premium should not be affected.
It is also our goal as Oak Lawn Traffic Violation Attorneys to assist individuals who possess a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). For these drivers, even court supervision on a petty traffic offense may affect their ability to operate a commercial vehicle in Illinois, which can affect their employment and livelihood. Our goal is to get your traffic ticket dismissed, or get it amended to a non-moving violation, which will not affect your CDL, or job.
