This place is incredible. I had gotten a bogus ticket by a Big-headed State Trooper with a Swollen Ego that not even his 2011 white unmarked Crown Victoria could hold as he tried to merge with me off an On-ramp as I was traveling NB I-55 at the I-294 South Interchange. I knew I was in the right and both the Attorney's Assistant Maria and the Attorney Mr. Martin were very understanding and overly co-operative with my frustration. I currently hold a C.D.L. in the state of Illinois and it is important for me to bring home money. The team at Drivers' Defense understood this and made me feel like I wasn't just another guy to collect easy paycheck from, but took my trust and their experience and handled my Citation very swiftly and with great skill that it felt as if I knew I was in great hands. All I had to do after the first intake call was make my payment arrangement and pray, the rest was in theirs' and God's hands. It works out great when they help you here. I continue on a major scale to spread the word about them daily and weekly in my profession and with friends and family. As you can tell I talk a lot and I am very detail oriented. But I can't say enough how impressed and happy I chose this group of incredible people to help me.Sincerely,Todd

The professionals at Driver Defense Team certainly know what they're doing. I had recently acquired a moving violation and they were able to get it dismissed. Their rates are amazing especially considering that I ended up paying nothing in fines or court costs. Not to mention the fact that my driving record remains clean because of their performance. The team that worked with me was very diligent and thorough. The communication was outstanding as I was kept in the loop every step of the way. This was easily the least amount of headache I've ever dealt with regarding a traffic violation. It's pretty refreshing to be able to say that. I highly recommend Driver Defense Team if you are ever in need. They take care of business.

Outstanding experience. Excellent service. My son's tickets were painlessly taken care of. I'm truly appreciative of this wonderful service. The price can't be beat, and the customer service was great. I will use this firm again and recommend it to anyone having traffic issues.

I love this place. Tricia I think her name is, was very personable and her pictures do her no justice by the way. They got my case dismissed and very informative in red to any questions I had. This was in reference to driving on a suspended license. Thanks again, already referred a few clients to you guys. 😁

I walked into the office Saturday morning worried that I was going to lose my job and license for CDL. Luckily I walked in and got attended by a gentleman name Danny that is well educated and knew how to calm me down and get me quick assistant. After, I went to court for a good attorney Chris Dionne and got my ticket dismissed with no point assessed to my license. Thank you Chris,Danny and Driver Defense Team

I highly recommend DDT to represent any traffic violations. My profession involves a lot of driving, roughly 3,000 miles a month. In 2017 i had 4- traffic citations and I came to know about DDT through internate search. DDT represented me in the court for all my traffic violations and were able to successfully dismiss all 4-citations. that's a great relief for the person like me, who's job is depended on driving ! Kudos to DDT !!

I’m beyond thankful and pleased with my experience with Driver Defense Team. From the very beginning when I spoke with Ricardo who was the one reaching out to me about my case, to having Derek represent me. The price is really affordable and they make sure you feel comfortable letting them represent you. The communication was always clear as well as prices of payments/fees you would have to make. There was never any surprise fee or anything like that. I had a moving violation but I was confident that I was going to have my license suspended based on my record. However, the date of my court came by and later that day Derek called me to tell me how it went. For my surprise, he was able to get me another supervision which I didn’t thought possible, because I had the two limit supervision on a 12 month period already. ANYWAY, I don’t know what Derek did or how he did it but he made it possible and avoided me the unpleasant inconvenience of losing my driving rights for a period of time. I also got a letter from them giving me the information about my case regarding the court cost and all the information I need to register for a driving course. I’m thankful for making all this process as painless and unstressful as possible. I really hope I will never have to need their services again, but I will definitely recommend them to anyone who needs it.

I had a complicated traffic court issue & with my busy work schedule, I wanted someone reliable on my side to help me get out of it. I contacted Driver Defense Team & spoke with Derek Martin. He assured me that his team would do their best to get me the best possible outcome even if it took multiple visits to court. Based on my case, Derek helped me lay out a plan on how we would approach things, and advised me on how we should handle my case. I followed his instructions, and everything got situated as he predicted which I’m very thankful for.I was afraid of different lawyers going to court for me, but he assured me that all their lawyers could handle my issue and that is exactly what happened. Even when different lawyers, including Chris Dionne, that came from the Driver Defense team, everything was handled well & efficiently. All the laywers were up to date with what was happening and knew what the game plan was and worked hard to achieve that.Their entire team is very responsive which made communication easy. They were all very caring, and listened and addressed all my concerns and I was extremely happy with the outcome they helped me reach.Driver Defense Team is also priced very competitively which is obviously a huge plus!I hope no one ever ends up in this type of situation, but if you do, I would highly recommend The Driver Defense Team to help you get out of it.

Received 7 tickets from berwyn over a car accident i caused and subsequent mistakes thereafter. After a few court dates they cleared me of all the tickets and with only supervision. The absolute best, saved my butt. Would recommend to anyone.
