Traffic Ticket Defense

If you received a traffic ticket(s) from a police officer, it is important to discuss your ticket(s) with an experienced traffic (link) lawyer. At the Law Offices of Steven J. Block and Associates, we routinely and succussfully appear in Cook, Lake, Dupage, Kane and Will counties to assist in the defense of alleagtions contained in traffics tickets.

The traffic ticket that you received may be punishable by jail in the department of corrrections or by fine only. It is advised that a qualified traffics ticket attorney thoroughly review the charges pending against you to clarify potential licensing repercussions as well as whether you are charged with a jailable offense.

Being former prosecutors, our attorneys have both the experience and the knowledge of how prosecutors are going to prosecute your matter. This will assist you into formulating a proper defense and if appropriate, advise you as to how certain amendments to certain traffics tickets will benefit you in keeping your license clear from any permanent blemishes and maintain a valid driver's license.

Never mail in a ticket and plead guilty to any traffic offense

If you do,you are most likely subjecting yourself to a permanent conviction on your record and the distinct possibilty that your insurance rates will increase. Moreover, upon conviction, you are setting yourself up for a suspension of your driver's license. Unlike other states, Illinois does not work on a point system. Instead, the Secretary of State simply notes whether you were convicted of an offense or whether you were granted supervision.

In the past, a driver could get supervision multiple times. Currently, a person may be granted supervision on a traffic offense twice in a one year time period. If you are not eligible for supervision,a judge would sentence you to a judgment or conviction. If you are under 21, and you receive two (2) convictions in twent-four (24) months, your driver's license will be suspended. If you are over 21, and you receive three (3) convictions in a 1 year time period your driver's license will be suspended as well.

Below are frequently cited offenses some of which are charged as misdemeanors and petty offenses:


Aggravated Speeding

Driving While License is Suspended or Revoked

Reckless Driving

Leaving the Scene of a Propery Damage Accident

Failure to Give Aid or Information

Street Racing

Petty Offenses


Speeding in a construction zone

Speeding in a school zone

Improper Lane Usage

Failure to Reduce Speed to Avoid an Accident

Driving to Fast for Conditions

Failure to Signal

Disobeying a Stop Sign

Disobeying a Red Light

Driving without Insurance

Driving with expired registration

Passing a school bus

Failure to Yield to an Emergency Vehicle

The state of licensing and type of driver's license is an exprtemely important factor in determining how to proceed with any of the aforementioned traffic tickets. Additionaly, individuals who are under the age of twenty-one (21) at the time of receiving a ticket may be exposed to more harsh sentences due to age.

If you seek effective and efficent reprepresentation at an affordable rate, contact the Law Office of Steven J. Block and Associates and we will show you how are knowledge and experience will help you to achieve the results that you need.
