Will County Traffic Violations Lawyer

Will County Traffic Violations Attorney

Attorney for Traffic Offenses in Joliet, Plainfield, and Bolingbrook

Throughout the country, including here in Northern Illinois, the enforcement of traffic laws is becoming increasingly strict. Many cities and villages have installed red-light cameras, speed control sensors, and automated systems for issuing traffic citations. Some drivers view an occasional ticket as one of the costs of the road, similar to expenses incurred for tolls and fuel. Traffic violations, however, can be much more serious, especially when an individual receives a second or third ticket soon after the first. Some citations could even result in the suspension of driving privileges. If you have received a traffic ticket or are facing more serious traffic-related charges, the Law Offices of Blake Stone, P.C. can help you understand your options.

Trusted Advocate for Traffic Citations

The first step in handling any type of traffic offense is understanding the nature of the alleged violation. The Illinois Vehicle Code is a complex collection of statutes that can be very confusing to the average person. Your citation, for example, may clearly indicate that you are accused of running a red light, but you may not fully recognize how pleading guilty could affect you and your driving record.

Before you take any action, it is important to discuss your situation with a qualified lawyer. Attorney Blake Stone is former DuPage County prosecutor with more than 20 years of legal experience. With his strong working knowledge of the law and familiarity with the local court system, Mr. Stone has the tools to help you protect your rights.

Legal Counsel for Plainfield Traffic Violations

At the Law Offices of Blake Stone, P.C., we handle all types of traffic-related offenses, including equipment violations such as burnt out headlights, broken taillights, and other physical issues. Our firm also helps clients with moving violations such as:

  • Speeding;
  • Ignoring traffic signals and signs;
  • Running a red light;
  • Driving with a suspended or revoked license;
  • Driving without proper liability insurance; and
  • Failure to wear a seatbelt.

According to Illinois law, three convictions for moving violations in a 12-month period will result in the automatic suspension of your driver's license. The length of the suspension may vary depending on the specific violations and points accumulated on your record. It is important to understand that when you mail in your citation and pay the fine, you are actually pleading guilty, which results in a conviction for the alleged offense. Speak with a member of the team at the Law Offices of Blake Stone, P.C. before making a potentially costly mistake.

Some moving violations can be serious enough to warrant criminal charges as well. You could face misdemeanor or felony charges for:

These types of violations could result in consequences that are much more serious than a license suspension. A conviction is likely to lead to expensive fines, probation, and possible prison time. If you are facing motor vehicle-related criminal charges, Attorney Blake Stone is ready to fight on your behalf.
