Helping You Fight Traffic Tickets
The attorneys at our firm have over 30 years of experience defending clients cited with traffic violations. Traffic violations that we defend include:
- Speeding tickets
- Operating after revocation
- Illegal lane use
- Reckless driving
- Failure to yield
- Inattentive driving
- Hit and run
- Injury caused by intoxicated driver
- Fleeing the scene
- Eluding an officer
- Negligent homicide
- Following too closely
- Drunk driving
- Driving with a suspended license
- Most other traffic tickets
If you have been cited with traffic violations such as these, you may face license revocation, license suspension, fines, jail time and increased insurance rates. You may be required to take special classes. Having an experienced attorney working for you who understands how to properly protect you is critical. Contact an Oshkosh traffic violations lawyer at Sparr, Belville & Brown, LLC, to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your case.
If you are an Illinois driver passing through Winnebago County, Wisconsin, and our aggressive state patrol or local sheriff pulls you over and issues a ticket, you may be in for a surprise. While Illinois drivers ticketed in Illinois can pay the fine, be put on supervision and have their ticket dismissed to avoid a moving violation, that is not possible in Wisconsin. If you pay your Wisconsin fine, our Department of Motor Vehicles will notify the Illinois DOT of your conviction, and you will have accumulated one moving violation. If you accumulate three in a year, your license will be suspended, and obtaining an occupational license in Illinois is not easy.
In some cases, we can get your Wisconsin ticket amended to a violation that won’t affect your Illinois license. While we are not licensed to practice law in Illinois, we can help Illinois drivers with tickets in Winnebago County, and we can refer you to the Illinois DOT or to an Illinois traffic lawyer in your area to give you advice on how this affects your Illinois license.
Habitual Traffic Offenders
In addition to helping individuals deal with traffic violations, such as those listed here, our law firm has handled many cases of habitual traffic offender (HTO) charges. We have successfully prevented clients from becoming habitual traffic offenders and having their license revoked for five years. Habitual traffic offenders are persons who accumulate four major traffic convictions or a total of 12 major and minor convictions over a five-year period. Our attorneys has been able to revisit earlier traffic convictions, getting convictions reopened and dismissed or amended to minor offenses, and thus preventing our clients from facing a five-year license revocation. Even after you have become a habitual traffic offender, we are often able to reopen convictions so that you can get your driving privileges reinstated.
