Whether you live in Illinois, or if you reside out of state, infractions are something which must be dealt with and not ignored.

The PGO Law Firm can save you time, money & help to preserve your future driving privileges if you have been cited by law enforcement. Hiring the PGO Law Firm may result in a better resolution than you would receive on your own and you may not be required to attend court at all. Traffic Violations that we handle include:
Speeding Tickets – Many people think that speeding and traffic tickets are not a major concern. The truth of the matter is that traffic infractions can impact your life in many ways. They can lead to increased insurance premiums, missed time from work, financial penalties & possibly the suspension of your driver’s license.
Traffic Warrants – There are many ramifications of having a traffic ticket go into warrant status. These include the fact that you can be arrested by law enforcement, increased fines, you will not be able to board a flight, and your driver’s license may be suspended. By resolving the warrant sooner rather than later you can avoid many of these consequences.
Reckless Driving Charges – It is considered a criminal matter when one abuses their driving privileges to the point of putting others in danger. Many people engage in reckless driving out of a sense of wanting a thrill ride & not considering the consequences.
CDL Violations – Illinois has specific requirements in place regarding who may hold a commercial driver’s license. A commercial driver will lose their license if they are convicted of at least 2 “serious violations” in a 3-year period or, depending on the circumstances, if they receive 3 convictions in a 3-year period.
Driver’s License Reinstatement – Those who find their license suspended, you do have options. It may be possible to apply for a Restricted Driving Permit (RDP). If granted, a RDP will allow you to drive a car to and from work & to the doctor’s office.
We take every case we handle extremely seriously and are dedicated to helping our clients get back on the road. There are many consequences for a traffic offense that go beyond the amount of money you owe for the ticket, including points on your license and raised insurance rates.
