Champaign Traffic Violation Defense Lawyers
Most people think of tickets as minor nuisances and not much more than that. However, in many traffic cases, a conviction can lead to very high fines. If you forget to pay a single fine or you file a single document just past when it’s due, you will discover that you’re suddenly facing skyrocketing traffic violation fees that can’t be easily or quickly paid off.
In addition, the accumulation of numerous traffic violations can also raise your insurance rates and cause a number of other, more serious problems, including spending time in jail or losing your driver’s license. Without an attorney fighting for your rights, you may be facing unfair fines and punishments.

Why Do I Need an Attorney in a Traffic Violations Case?
Speeding tickets, reckless driving violations, and other minor traffic citations may seem like cases that you can handle on your own. In fact, many people do try to manage tickets and fines without the help of an attorney.
Yet when doing so, you run the risk of making a simple traffic violation much worse and much more complex.
Taking care of a traffic violation can be a more complicated process than many people realize. Missing legal deadlines, misfiling legal paperwork, or failing to show up to court on the right dates can cost you hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
That’s why hiring an attorney for your case will help you with the legal process and ensure that you don’t have to pay any more for your traffic violations case than is required. Contrary to popular belief, hiring an attorney can actually save you money in the long run because a lawyer will minimize the time you spend on the case and help ensure that you don’t have to pay extra fines and fees.

Cases We Handle
No matter what traffic violation you have been accused of, the consequences of a conviction can still be very harsh. You may face fines, driver’s license suspension, jail time, and an increase in insurance rates. By presenting a strong legal defense, however, you may be able to significantly reduce or even eliminate these penalties.
The Champaign traffic violation defense lawyers of Bruno Law Offices can help you with a variety of cases, including:
- Reckless Driving
- Driving Under the Influence
- Driving without a License
- Driving with an Expired License
We also deal with more complex cases where multiple traffic violations are involved. For example, in Champaign, an unpaid parking ticket can result in the suspension of your driver’s license. If you drive with a suspended driver’s license and are caught, then you will face more expensive fines and more serious charges.
Hiring an attorney quickly after your traffic violation will eliminate the likelihood that will you face additional traffic violation charges and fines.
What Should I Do After I Receive a Traffic Violation?
After getting a traffic violation, you may not know how to move forward, especially if you don’t believe that you deserved it and you don’t have the money to pay it or the time to spend in court trying to fight it. A Bruno Law Offices attorney can guide you to the best decision that will minimize your fees and time spent on your ticket.
If you’ve received one or more traffic violations, you can either plead not guilty or guilty/no contest. If you plead not guilty, you will need an attorney to help you during the hearing when you are contesting your traffic violation.
If you win, and the judge finds you not guilty, you will be cleared of the charge(s). If you are found guilty when pleading not guilty or guilty/no contest, you may face fines, community service, interlock devices on your ignition, a suspended license, or jail time.
If you plead guilty/no contest, you will face fines at the county court and likely will have to attend an online driving school to obtain a certificate that will then have to be submitted to the DMV or court.
Even when pleading guilty an attorney can help you reduce the penalties you face. Bruno Law Offices is experienced in dealing with traffic violations cases, from the most minor speeding tickets to the most severe infractions of transportation law.
We can take the burden from your shoulders and ensure that all deadlines are met, all documents are organized, and the best case that can possibly be made is argued in your favor.
