DuPage County Traffic Court Attorney

Sugar Grove traffic ticket lawyer

Low-Fee Lawyer for Speeding Tickets and Traffic Violations in Naperville, Sugar Grove, and Yorkville

For many Illinois residents, a traffic stop may be your closest brush with the law. Some traffic violations, including driving under the influence (DUI), reckless driving, aggravated speeding, and driving without a license, are considered criminal misdemeanors in Illinois. However, most traffic violations are considered petty offenses and typically result in lesser penalties.

Nevertheless, being ticketed for a traffic violation can still have negative effects on your life, especially when money is already tight. You may feel that hiring an attorney to contest the ticket is not worth the cost and that you have no choice but to pay the fine, but at the Legal-Ease Law Clinic, we strive to make our services affordable to all clients to help you avoid penalties and violations on your driving record.

Affordable Legal Representation for a Range of Illinois Traffic Violations

Many different actions can result in a ticket for a traffic violation, and chances are that you will receive a ticket for one of them at some point in your life. We can assist clients who have been charged with violations including:

  • Speeding, including in school and construction zones
  • Texting and handheld cellphone use while driving
  • Not wearing a seatbelt
  • Failing to yield to an emergency vehicle or school bus
  • Failing to yield the right of way at a stoplight, stop sign, crosswalk, intersection, or merge point
  • Making an illegal pass or turn
  • Failing to signal a turn or lane change
  • Stopping, standing, or parking your vehicle in a prohibited location

If you are stopped for any of these violations, you should make sure to pull over in a safe area and prepare to show the law enforcement officer your driver's license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. Avoid arguing with the officer, as this may negatively impact your chances of a successful defense at a court hearing, and aggressive behavior may lead to misdemeanor charges for resisting arrest.

Preparing For Traffic Court in Dupage, Kane, and Kendall County

If you are charged with a traffic violation, your ticket will note the amount of your fine and the date of your court hearing. If you wish to contest the ticket, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible who can help you prepare for your defense at the hearing. Note that failure to pay your fine or appear for your scheduled hearing can ultimately result in the suspension of your license, so it is important that you take action regardless of how you decide to proceed.

When you work with us, we will seek to develop a full understanding of the circumstances leading to your ticket and determine the best approach to your defense. Our goal is to have the violation dismissed whenever possible to prevent you from facing consequences including:

  • Fines starting at $100 or more, which can increase for repeat offenses
  • Points on your driver's license, which can lead to a suspension or revocation of your license if you have three or more violations within one year
  • Increased car insurance rates due to the greater risk your provider assumes

If it is not possible to remove the violation entirely, we may be able to negotiate for reduced fines or court supervision, in which your charges can be dismissed after your compliance with the court's requirements for a specified period of time. In many cases, this means you will need to complete a course through traffic school and pay court fees, but you will not have points added to your license.

If your license is suspended or revoked as a result of a traffic violation, we may be able to help you obtain a Restricted Driving Permit that allows you to travel to work and other important appointments. We can also help you follow the necessary steps to have your license reinstated after the suspension period.
