Traffic Ticket Defense in Chicago, IL
Assistance from a Chicago Criminal Defense Lawyer
It is pretty common for individuals to get traffic tickets at least once
in their lives. Whether you are an inexperienced teen driver or someone
who has been behind the wheel for decades, you can easily be the next
one to be pulled over on the side of the road and cited for a traffic
violation. While some individuals are given tickets for minor violations,
such as the failure to use a turn signal, others can end up facing allegations
of more serious traffic offenses such as reckless driving. (Reckless driving
is a misdemeanor crime that can even be bumped up to a felony in some
cases.) Whatever your alleged traffic violation is, you can depend on my
criminal defense firm—the
Law Offices of Mitch Furman—for help fighting your ticket or your criminal traffic offense charges.

Why hire a defense lawyer?
Because traffic tickets are so common, many people underestimate the importance
of fighting their tickets or charges. In addition to expensive fines,
a finding of guilty for a traffic offense can also cause damage to a person's
driving record. Each traffic offense will result in a certain number of
points being added to the driver's record. If enough points are accumulated,
the driver can then suffer from a driver's license suspension or revocation.
This can be particularly devastating to commercial drivers who need to
be able to drive in order to earn a living. Traffic offenses can also
lead to increases in insurance premiums.
If you have received a traffic ticket or have been charged with a traffic-related
crime, take immediate action and secure the right legal representation.
