Aggressive Traffic Ticket Defense
Since 2008, Laura D. Frye has known how to effectively challenge traffic tickets and criminal traffic offenses. If I can't get the ticket dismissed, I will seek to have charges reduced to limit the fines and civil consequences. I can help you fight all types of traffic tickets and moving violations issued in Illinois & Wisconsin, such as:
- Speeding Tickets
- Construction Zone Tickets
- School Zone Tickets
- Reckless Driving
- Drunk Driving & DUI
- Driving Under Suspension or Revocation
- Driving Without Insurance
- Hit & Run (Leaving the scene of an accident)
Traffic violations can have serious consequences. Driving while your license is suspended or revoked (DWLS/DWLR) is a major offense that can lead to longer suspensions of a revocation for several years or a lifetime, in addition to criminal penalties. As a result of recent changes to the traffic laws in Illinois, driving on a suspended license is a class 4 felony.
These consequences can be particularly severe for people who are under 21. For people over 21, many traffic offenses can result in court supervision, this keeps a conviction off of a driver's record, and allows a driver to avoid further penalties. For drivers under 21 though, the law imposes greater restrictions. To be eligible for court supervision rather than a conviction, a young driver must attend traffic school. Among other things, avoiding a conviction can have significant consequences for your insurance rates.
