Why Do You Need A Lawyer For Traffic Violations?

Traffic violations may seem minor, which is why many people across Christian County and central Illinois simply pay the fine and move on. But there are more than just short-term consequences, and you may be giving up money and sacrificing your rights by acting alone.

At Beavers, Graham & Calvert, our legal team is highly experienced in reducing or eliminating the charges against traffic offenders. From speeding tickets to parking violations and more, our goal is to get you the best result possible for your case. Below are just some of the ways a criminal defense attorney can be beneficial when you are fined for a traffic violation.

You Could Get A Better Deal

A wide range of penalties and fines can result from a traffic ticket. Officers have the discretion to fine you for whatever violations they see fit and could give you a harsher penalty than what you deserve.

By working with a proven criminal defense attorney, you can rest assured that you aren't paying for a violation you didn't commit. We have great working relationships with many of the state prosecutors and attorneys in Illinois and work to negotiate the best deal possible for our clients.

Ensuring That You Are Treated Fairly

Many of us hear stories about how law enforcement will use their authority to fine you for violations you haven't committed or give you more serious traffic tickets to meet quotas assigned by their department. Regardless of the situation, having a lawyer on your side ensures that your rights are protected at all times.

It Could Save You Money In The Long Run

Getting a better deal on your traffic ticket could also save you money in the future. Your initial ticket could cause your auto insurance premiums to skyrocket, which has a much greater cost than the ticket itself. By fighting for the most favorable outcome possible on behalf of our clients, we often find the payoff is well-worth the services of an experienced attorney.
