St. Charles Traffic Violations Attorney

Naperville Traffic Ticket Defense Lawyer

A traffic violation can range in seriousness from a minor offense to a misdemeanor or felony crime. Usually, this depends on whether or not someone was injured or property was damaged as a result of the infraction, although offenses like hit-and-run or operating with a suspended or revoked license are considered more serious crimes.

If you've been accused of a traffic violation that may result in misdemeanor or felony charges, you need an experienced traffic violation defense attorney. Call Donahue & Sowa today at 630-232-1780 or contact us online to speak to a lawyer who will advise you on your best legal options.

Misdemeanors & Felonies

If a violation of traffic law causes damage to property or harm to another person, it is classified as a misdemeanor or a felony. In the more serious cases, the driver of the vehicle may have intended to cause harm, but even if that's not the case, the infraction may still be considered a more serious crime than a simple traffic violation.

Common misdemeanors include driving with a suspended or revoked license and driving without insurance. Felony traffic crimes are usually offenses such as DUI/DWI or vehicular homicide.

If you or a loved one has been accused of a traffic violation, you have all of the rights of any defendant in the court of law.
