DuPage County Speeding Ticket Attorney
Aggravated Speeding Defense Lawyer in Oak Brook, Bloomingdale, and Wheaton IL
Driving over the posted speed limit may get you to where you are going faster, but it can have a negative impact on your life. Some tickets you can merely mail in with the payment for the fine, others such as for aggravated or excessive speeding are not ones you can simply dismiss. Some aggravated speeding tickets, such as speeding in a construction zone, or other traffic violations require a court appearance. Not only will court time away from school or work, it can impact your finances, job, and freedom if convicted of a serious traffic offense.
Therefore, some speeding tickets are not easy to deal with and may hold a misdemeanor charge for which you may serve jail time. Court supervision may not be available if you have multiple offenses, and you may also face the suspension or revocation of your driver's license.
Attorney Clarissa R. E. Myers is a tenacious and approachable lawyer who has experience handling speeding cases. She has an aggressive defense to each case and will work with you to pursue the best outcome for your case. Ms. Myers gives each client trusted legal advice and will be your voice in court.

Misdemeanor Charges for Aggravated Speeding
If you are driving 26 miles per hour (mph) or more but less than 35 mph over the posted speed limit, it is considered a Class B misdemeanor in Illinois. If you are driving 35 mph or more over the posted speed limit, it is a Class A misdemeanor. If you are convicted, you may face significant jail time and a conviction on your record. It may be possible to receive court supervision, but that is only possible in some cases. Though a misdemeanor charge for speeding may seem minor, a misdemeanor conviction on your record can impact your ability to find employment, receive acceptance into educational programs, receive federal aid, or obtain professional licenses. Each time you apply for a new job or school or fill out a housing application, you will have to answer yes to being convicted of a misdemeanor charge and will have to explain it. The conviction will follow you long after you have paid repercussions for it, including the possibility of higher insurance rates. Even a plea of guilty to a misdemeanor with court supervision may affect you negatively, as well.
