Ordinance Violations (OV)

These tickets are often issued by municipal police in lieu of a ticket under the state vehicle or criminal code. They are not punishable by jail or prison and have a maximum penalty of $750. Fines for convictions are often much less however municipalities see this as a way to shift fine fees to the city instead of the county. We regularly appear in OV court and would be glad to discuss your case. Contact us today to find out how we can help!

Even a small traffic offense like speeding can have big consequnces if it is left unattended. Our attorneys have experience resolving traffic tickets economically for clients. Some tickets can be fought while others are best resolved with a favorable plea. Hiring a local attorney can often help you avoid having to return to Illinois to appear for court and we can facilitate the payment of any fines or fees.
