Not Just a Ticket - ILDefense.com Blog

 

People are cited for traffic violations every day in Chicago and Cook County.  Most of the citations are for “petty” traffic violations and therefore many people believe an attorney is not necessary… That is of course until their license is suspended. 
 
Unfortunately, the secretary of state’s office can and will suspend your license even for minor traffic violations such as speeding, failure to yield, driving without insurance, and improper lance usage if you have a history of traffic citations.  Even if you don’t have a history of prior traffic offenses, your license may nevertheless be suspended if you have a commercial driver’s license also know as a CDL. 
 
Whether your appearance is required at the Daley Center, Rolling Meadows, Skokie or one of the other court houses in Cook County, is it always advisable to bring an attorney with you in order to advocate on your behalf.  Traffic tickets are much more serious than people realize and can have irreversible consequences on your license. 
 
Matt Fakhoury, a former traffic prosecutor, will attempt to get your case dismissed or reduced to a lesser offense in order to prevent action by the secretary of state against your license.   Visit ILDefense.com or call 847-920-4540 for a free consultation.
