DuPage County Moving Violation Lawyers
Providing Effective Defense in Traffic Violation Cases
If you are issued a traffic ticket while driving in Chicago or the surrounding vicinity, you might assume that you should simply pay the fine because there is no reason to fight the ticket. There are many situations where it is in the best interest of an individual to appear in court and contest a moving violation. When a driver is convicted of a moving violation, the conviction can impact the individual’s insurance rates and even result in jail time for serious violations. The spike in insurance rates often is far more costly than the fine. Motorists who have prior or future violations might also find that their right to drive is put at risk based on the number of points on their driving record. Anyone with a commercial driver’s license might face challenges keeping their job or obtaining employment if they do not successfully fight a moving violation.
The Right Choice for Moving Violation Defense
Our DuPage County traffic violations lawyers have represented many people saddled with traffic tickets. Ramsell & Associates, LLC has provided skilled advocacy to people facing criminal charges ranging from minor traffic violations to major felonies. Our law firm tailors our representation to the unique facts, circumstances and budget of our clients when contesting moving violations. However, we understand the defenses that are most successful based on the specific moving violation because we have seen almost every scenario involving traffic tickets. Whether we are exposing inconsistencies in the officer’s report, exposing improperly functioning radar guns or seeking to have incriminating statements suppressed, we tenaciously protect our clients’ rights and driving privileges.
Although many tickets provide an option to pay the fine or appear in court and dispute the ticket, some types of violations require a court appearance. While the ticket will usually indicate whether you must appear, you should check with the court or a moving violation defense attorney if you are unsure because it is your responsibility to make this determination. When you receive a traffic ticket, you will be subject to strict deadlines, so it is important you act promptly to avoid unnecessary fines or suspension of your driving privileges.
