When most people receive a traffic ticket, they usually do not immediately think to consult an attorney. However, fighting a ticket may be important if you are to keep your driving record clean, your insurance premiums as low as possible, and to avoid potential driver's license suspension from accumulating too many points on your record. At Fagan Fagan & Davis, we are dedicated to representing clients throughout Chicago, Illinois who have received traffic tickets for a variety of offenses, including speeding, red light violations, driving while license suspended, and more. We also handle serious traffic violations such as DUI and can assist commercial drivers who have been pulled over for any traffic infraction or criminal traffic offense.
An experienced traffic ticket attorney can help a driver in a number of ways, including:
Assessing the ticket or traffic violation to determine how serious the offense is and whether the driver should fight it
Representing the driver in traffic court or criminal court, as necessary
Representing the driver in any license suspension hearing that may occur as a result of a serious violation or accumulated points on a driving record
Free Consultation Regarding Your Chicago Ticket
If you have received a traffic ticket for any type of infraction or criminal traffic violation, you may wonder whether it is worth it to hire an attorney to fight the ticket. Of course in cases involving criminal violations, your freedom is on the line. Involving a legal professional may make the difference between you spending time in jail or avoiding a conviction altogether. In lesser violations, however, an attorney can still help. Receiving a traffic ticket and simply paying it essentially means that you are admitting guilt, and points will be assessed on your driving record. This may result in increased auto insurance premiums as well as license suspension altogether if you accumulate enough points.
