DuPage County Traffic Charges Attorney

DuPage County Traffic Violations Attorney

Lawyer for Traffic Violations in Wheaton, Aurora, and Throughout the Area

The enforcement of traffic laws has become stricter than ever, with cities and towns even installing cameras and automated systems for issuing traffic violations. For many drivers, a traffic ticket now and then may seem like one of the costs of driving a car or truck. The problems become much more serious, however, when a driver receives a second or third citation in a short period of time as a suspension of driving privileges may follow. At The Law Offices of O’Donnell & Nierman, Ltd., we are ready to help you understand your options when you have been accused of a traffic violation.

Legal Counsel for Traffic Citations in DuPage County

There two separate types of traffic offenses under Illinois law: equipment violations and moving violations. Equipment violations may be issued for broken headlights, burnt out taillights, a cracked windshield, or other physical problems with your vehicle. In most cases, equipment violations are somewhat less serious than moving violations. Moving violations include the majority of traffic offenses which most people are familiar with, such as:

  • Driving under the influence (DUI);
  • Speeding;
  • Running a red light;
  • Leaving the scene of accident involving injury or property damage;
  • Ignoring traffic signs and signals;
  • Driving without insurance;
  • Driving on a suspended or revoked license; and
  • Seat belt violations.

Knowledgeable Traffic Violations Lawyer

When you have received a traffic ticket, you need an attorney who understands the law and is ready to work hard on your behalf. Attorney Michael P. O'Donnell is that lawyer. Mr. O'Donnell is a United States Army Reserve veteran who has served his country for more than 20 years as a military police officer. He has also spent more than a decade working as a prosecutor with the DuPage County States Attorneys Office. His background and knowledge of the law give him a unique perspective and the ability to help clients from all walks of life.

Keeping Your License Whenever Possible

In the state of Illinois, if you are convicted of three moving violations in a 12-month period, you will be subject to an automatic drivers license suspension. The length of your suspension depends on the seriousness of your violations and the associated points assessed to your driving record. Marks against your driving record can also be used by insurance companies as the basis for rate increases or even denials of coverage in extreme cases. For these reasons, it is crucial to seek the help of a qualified attorney when you receive a citation for a moving violation. Do not wait until you are on the verge of losing your driving privileges. Take action and get the help you need in exploring your available options.
