Skokie Traffic Lawyer (847) 282-4723

Do you have to appear in Skokie court on a DUI charge or speeding ticket or other moving violation traffic citation? Attorney Michael Baker, with offices in Chicago and the near Northwest suburbs, can defend you against charges pending against you. Some common violations include: Drunk Driving (Driving under the Influence, DUI), speeding in excess of 40 miles over the posted speed limit, Reckless Driving, Leaving the Scene of an Accident involving Property damage or Personal injury, driving too fast for conditions or failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, Revoked or Suspended license, possession of marijuana/canabis,"road rage" and disorderly conduct offenses.

We represent clients charged with felony & misdemeanor DUI (driving under the influence). We advocate for license reinstatement, reduced charges, and dismissal of charges. We handle traffic violations including speeding tickets, reckless driving, and driving without a license. We assist clients at hearings before the Illinois Secretary of State with drivers license issues including reinstatement, obtaining a restricted license to drive, and reduction of license suspension periods.

A person charged with the offense of DUI faces a fine and court costs, imprisonment, or both, as well as a mandatory alcohol evaluation. A first-time DUI offender must pay a $250.00 reinstatement fee to have the Secretary of State reinstate his or her driver’s license; a second-time offender must pay a $500.00 reinstatement fee. If you are charged with a DUI offense, you should hire an attorney immediately.

Mike Baker prosecuted criminal cases at the District 2 Skokie courthouse for four years. By negotiating with the State's Attorney's Office when appropriate, we help our clients avoid time-consuming and costly DUI litigation. However, if we deem a more aggressive approach is in our client's best interest, we have a track record of successfully defending clients charged with DUI at: Rolling Meadows courthouse, Skokie DUI Court at Old Orchard, Traffic court, Daley Center, Bridgeview, Maywood, Markham, DUI in Lake county (Waukegan) or DuPage county court (Wheaton) and McHenry County,
