Did you know that in Illinois, speeding can land you in jail? Filling out the plea form given to you at the time of your traffic stop and paying the fine doesn’t always ensure that your license will remain in good standing? Or that failing to appear in court can suspend your license? Sometimes a traffic ticket is a Trojan horse for stiff penalties and high fines. If you are pulled over and receive a citation, reaching out to an experienced attorney in good standing to consult about the possible penalties associated can save you from having to deal with  future negative effects on your ability to drive. 

At Lafata Law, we have years of experience handling a wide variety of traffic matters. Whether you’re a CDL driver, a young driver new to the road, or a person that hasn’t had a ticket in 20 years, we assist in with all forms of traffic cases. Whether you were in your own vehicle or a business vehicle, we help guide our clients to a preferable outcome.  Having an attorney on your side that understands your circumstances and how to navigate the applicable laws is paramount. 

At first glance, a traffic ticket may not seem like a big deal. However, some tickets can land you in jail for 30 days,180 days, or even up to 364 days. Even tickets that are not subject to jail time can have adverse effects on your license. Some violations will outright suspend your license with little notice given to you leaving you with minimal time to create a plan for transportation for you and your family. Your past driving record can have serious negative impacts on the penalties you may face as well. 

Other violations may be points against your license. Too many points and your license may be suspended. If your license does get suspended, you will end up finding yourself unable to drive, or worse, in jail for driving. Here at Lafata Law, our attorneys can assess your situation and assist you in the pursuit of seeking  an alternative outcome. Having a knowledgeable attorney on your side, even in these seemingly innocuous cases, is paramount in avoiding unforeseen consequences and penalties. 

Not all tickets are created equal. To determine what penalties you may face or possible favorable outcomes, reach out to our attorneys here at Lafata Law. We will be able to answer any questions you may have and explain the court process as well as inform you of possible penalties. In some cases, the attorneys here at Lafata Law can appear on your behalf, allowing you the opportunity to save a vacation or sick day at work or finding childcare.  From petty violations to misdemeanors, Lafata Law is ready to apply our attorney’s years of experience and knowledge to advocate for you and formulate a strategy conducive to your unique circumstances.
