Elgin, Illinois DUI and Traffic Violations Attorney

kane county dui and traffic lawyer

Aggressive Criminal Defense Lawyer in Serving Kane County Clients

When most people think of traffic tickets, they think of relatively minor offenses that carry minimal consequences. While this is true for many traffic cases, there are also some traffic offenses that can seriously impact your life and your livelihood. Driving under the influence (DUI), for example, is not only a traffic offense, but it is also a criminal charge. A conviction for a DUI in Illinois comes with serious consequences. Additionally, accumulating multiple traffic convictions can result in the loss of driving privileges.

At Canning Law Offices in Elgin, Illinois, we are experienced in handling all types of traffic related matters. We understand how important driving privileges are to our clients, and we strongly advocate to keep you on the road. For DUI cases, we aggressively fight to preserve our clients freedom and to mitigate the other consequences you may face.

Affordable Legal Representation for DUI and Traffic Cases

Traffic violations come in varying levels of severity. There are minor tickets, misdemeanors, and felonies. Some people mistakenly believe that minor traffic tickets can be treated casually. They may simply pay the fine and accept culpability. This strategy can backfire, however, and cost you in unforeseen ways. For example, traffic convictions even for minor offenses may cause your insurance premiums to increase significantly, and multiple traffic convictions may result in the suspension of your driver's license.

Traffic offenses that involve injuries or the destruction of property typically become misdemeanor or felony offenses. Convictions for these offenses can result in jail time and significant fines. Our firm is experienced in representing the rights and interests of clients in traffic cases. We provide high-quality legal counsel at affordable rates and even offer discounts for senior citizens. We handle all types of traffic cases including:

  • DUI
  • Speeding
  • Reckless Driving
  • Driving with a Suspended License
  • Driving with a Revoked License
  • Failure to Stop
  • Failure to Yield
  • Failure to Signal
  • Seat Belt Violations
  • Following Too Closely

Penalties for DUI Convictions

The State of Illinois takes DUI cases very seriously, and there are strict penalties for convictions in these cases even for first offenses. It is important to have an attorney who is experienced in handling DUI charges. Attorney Charles Canning and his team know how to effectively advocate for clients accused of DUI. We carefully evaluated the circumstances of each case and work with clients to formulate a strategy to provide a strong defense. Facing a DUI charge is very scary, but with the help of an experienced and dedicated attorney, it is possible to successfully defend against these charges or minimize the consequences of a conviction.
