Criminal Defense

Illinois Traffic Offenses

Joliet Speeding Ticket Attorney

Most people who get speeding tickets or get caught driving on a suspended license don’t understand the impact to their driving privileges. These seemingly small matters can become big problems such as heavy fines, increased auto insurance premiums, jail time and criminal conviction if not properly addressed.

Recent laws require a criminal conviction, not just a traffic conviction, for anyone who exceeds the speed limit by 31 mph.  Exceed the speed limit in excess of 40 mph, especially if your speed exceeds 100 mph, and jail time is a real possibility.

The Law Office of Steven Haney takes every client’s traffic violation case seriously. For over 20 years the firm has helped people avoid worst-case scenarios. Multiple traffic tickets can mean a conviction on your record. Fight for your right to contest what the police claim were moving violations.

Contact our Joliet law office today. We’ll work hard to preserve your driving privileges by getting the charges dismissed or reduced.
