CRAFTING A DEFENSE

No traffic case is the same, but all cases are defensible in Illinois. The prosecution faces the challenge of having to prove each and every element of the speeding offense. The ticketing or arresting officer will be required to testify. If we proceed to trial, we will challenge the officer’s memory, credibility, and possible defenses.
