Naperville Speeding Ticket Defense Lawyer

Paying a speeding ticket can have costs that aren't readily apparent. When you pay a speeding ticket in Illinois, you will receive a conviction and points on your driving record. Depending on the number of points or convictions you receive in a 12-month period, your driver's license could be suspended. You could also face significantly higher insurance rates.

At the Law Office of Philip R. Nathe, we can often negotiate a reduction to a less serious violation or convince the court to place you under court supervision, which could result in the ticket being dismissed. To schedule a free consultation to discuss your case, contact Naperville speeding ticket defense lawyer Philip R. Nathe today.

More than 26 mph over the speed limit50

If you have three convictions for traffic violations within a 12-month period, your driver's license can be revoked for a period of time. The length of this suspension will depend on the number of points on your driving record and whether or not your driver's license has been revoked in the past seven years. You may be imprisoned for driving with a suspended license.

Speeding more than 40 mph over the limit: If you are cited for driving more than 40 mph over the speed limit, you will be charged with a class A misdemeanor and the option of court supervision will not be available. In some cases, we may be able to convince the court to charge you with a lower violation, so the option of supervision becomes available.
