“Minor” Traffic Violations
Let’s clear up one thing right away—the notion of a “minor” traffic violation is fake news. Make no mistake, traffic violations, even if they don’t seem like a big deal, can have serious consequences if not properly handled. A conviction for even a “minor” traffic offense, can cause your insurance rates to increase, can result in significant fines, can lead to license suspensions and can lengthen an existing license suspension. So while many traffic violations, if correctly handled will have no lasting impact on you or your driving record, if they are not taken seriously they can have a negative consequences for you and your driving record. Give me, Adam Grosch 708-233-0758, a call and we will discuss how I can affordably protect your driving record.
Not So “Minor” Traffic Violations
While some traffic offenses do not appear, on their face, to be serious, there are others that we all know are serious. For example driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, driving on a suspended license, reckless driving, aggravated speeding, fleeing and eluding police, leaving the scene of an accident are all serious charges, and are all misdemeanors that can be punished with jail time and significant fines.
Driving Under The Influence of Alcohol, Drugs or Cannabis (weed, marijuana)
On a typical DUI arrest, not only are you charged with the criminal offense of driving under the influence, but your driving privileges could be suspended for six months or a year or longer depending on the circumstances. So now one arrest for DUI has resulted in two issues that you have to deal with: a criminal charge of driving under the influence and a suspension of your driver’s license. While most DUIs are charged as misdemeanors, under certain circumstances, an arrest for DUI can be charged as a felony. Obviously, regardless of whether a person is charged with a misdemeanor or felony DUI, that person needs a lawyer.
If you or a loved one is charged with a DUI, either misdemeanor or felony, it is important to have an experienced attorney who can advise, guide you and aggressively defend you and your driving privileges.
In my successful defense of hundreds of DUI cases involving alcohol, drugs or cannabis or any combination of these substances, I have found many different ways to attack the state’s case, from challenging an illegal stop or arrest to challenging the breath or blood test to discrediting the testimony of the police officer. In many instances I have also been able to save the driving privileges of my clients as well.
I will use my decades of experience and skill to aggressively defend you and your driver’s license and I will work to obtain the best possible outcome for you and your driving privileges. Give me a call, Adam Grosch 708-233-0758, and we will discuss how I can help you and I will give you honest and realistic answers to your questions.
Driving on a suspended or revoked license
A charge of driving on a suspended or revoked driver’s license is often charged as a misdemeanor. However, depending on the circumstances, it can be charged as a felony. Very often, depending on the reason for the suspension and how many previous arrests a person has driving on a suspended or revoked driver’s license, the state may ask the judge to impose jail time. And if that isn’t bad enough, a conviction for driving on a revoked or suspended driver’s license can cause your license suspension or revocation to be extended for a longer period of time.
Call me, Adam Grosch 708-233-0758 and I will let you know how I can help you and how I can clear up the issues that led to your driver’s license suspension or revocation.
Aggravated Speeding or Fleeing and Eluding Defense Attorney
Did you get a ticket for driving 26 MPH or more over the speed limit? Yes? Well it is just a speeding ticket right? Wrong!! Speeding 26 MPH or more over the speed limit is a class B misdemeanor and if you are found guilty of such an offense you could punished by spending 6 months in jail and paying a fine up to $1,500.00. A speeding charge of 35 MPH or more over the speed limit is even more serious as you will be facing a class A misdemeanor that can be punished by serving 364 days in jail and paying a fine up to $2,500. So it is obvious that offenses like this are not just speeding tickets.
Aggravated speeding is a misdemeanor and is taken very seriously by prosecutors and judges throughout the Chicago and suburban areas and the offense of Fleeing and Eluding is taken just as seriously. Just like many of the other traffic offenses discussed on this page, Fleeing and Eluding is a class A misdemeanor which could result in jail time if you are convicted. Adding insult to injury, if you are convicted, the Secretary of State will suspend your driver’s license. Even more serious than Fleeing and Eluding is a charge of Aggravated Fleeing and Eluding a conviction of which could lead to time in the penitentiary and a revocation of your license.
If a you or a loved one faces a charge of Aggravated Speeding or Fleeing and Eluding or Aggravated Fleeing and Eluding give me, Adam Grosch 708-233-0758, a call and we will discuss how I can help you.
