Northwest Indiana Traffic Offense Attorney

When your driving privileges are at risk, you’ll want to speak with an attorney to determine the next steps. The penalties of a traffic offense can be severe and may lead to higher insurance premiums or even license suspension. Contact the Law Offices of Shane O’Donnell right away for dependable legal advice regarding your traffic ticket case.

Possible Consequences of a Traffic Offense

Traffic offenses can have lasting impacts on your driving record. Receiving a traffic ticket may result in the suspension of your driver’s license, the loss of your driving privileges, or expensive fines against you. If you have missed a court date and have a Failure to Appear or a warrant for your arrest, let us help you.

Our traffic ticket attorneys work closely with individuals who have a commercial driver’s license (CDL) because we understand that adding points to your driving record can put your job at risk. We represent local truckers as well as over-the-road drivers from other states who have been stopped on a highway or any roadway in Indiana. Whenever possible, our attorneys will seek to have charges reduced to an offense that does not add points to your record, thereby minimizing the chances that your CDL will be suspended or revoked.

Understanding Indiana Traffic Laws and How They Impact Your Case

Traffic-related charges can be complex and often need the assistance of an experienced attorney. The Law Offices of Shane O’Donnell can assist you in fighting a ticket, traffic violation, and other offenses in Northwest Indiana. In order to achieve a favorable resolution, we endeavor to help you avoid the most severe consequences and reduce charges pressed against you while protecting your driving privileges. Our knowledgeable lawyers can evaluate the benefits of challenging your charges and decide the next steps.

Moving Violations

When you are convicted of a moving violation, you receive a point that remains on your driving record. The point system is assigned by the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles, and if you receive more than 18 points in the span of two years, you may face fines and even license suspension.

Our law firm works hard to lower your penalties and help you avoid expensive insurance surcharges. We’re committed to defending your driving privileges and can assist with other common moving violation tickets:

  • Speeding
  • Driving while suspended as an infraction
  • Unsafe lane movement
  • Failure to yield
  • Failure to stop at a stop sign or traffic light

Misdemeanor and Felony Traffic Violations

There are several traffic crimes in Indiana that can cost you a criminal conviction and numerous points on your driving record.  Do not settle for a Public Defender if you are charged with these criminal offenses. These Indiana criminal traffic offenses include:

  • Reckless Driving
  • OWI/DUI/DWI (drunk driving)
  • Failure of duty (leaving the scene of an accident)
  • Driving without a license
  • Driving while suspended

If your license has been suspended and you need to reinstate your license, contact the Law Offices of Shane O’Donnell for dependable advice. We’ll help you navigate the process and fight for your driving privileges.

CDL Holders

If you are a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holder who is facing a traffic violation charge in Indiana, you’ll want to contact a knowledgeable attorney right away. Indiana law holds CDL holders to higher standards than normal drivers, and since your CDL allows you to make a living, you’ll want to work with an attorney as soon as possible to protect your license. The Law Offices of Shane O’Donnell will work with you to ensure that these traffic violations stay off of your permanent driving record.

In Indiana, Traffic Violations Come in Several Different Forms

Whether you were stopped for speeding or received a citation for illegal parking, work with an experienced traffic lawyer to seek reduced charges and eliminate points from your driving record. If you’ve received points due to a traffic violation, these points will remain valid for two years and may lead to increased insurance costs. Moreover, your driving privileges are at risk if you acquire 18 or more points within a two-year timeframe.

The following are some of the typical non-moving traffic offenses in Indiana that may necessitate legal assistance:

  • Driving with an expired license or registration
  • Failure to obtain auto insurance
  • Parking in designated handicap zones
  • Invalid or expired vehicle registration

At our firm, you’ll speak to an attorney with a solid reputation among Northwest Indiana traffic court judges, as Attorney O’Donnell is a former traffic prosecutor and knows how to keep your traffic ticket off of your record!
