Mound City and Cairo Traffic Violation Lawyer

Handling Traffic Ticket Cases Throughout Southern Illinois

If you have been issued a ticket for a traffic violation, you do not have to just pay the ticket and face the consequences. You have options for seeking the dismissal of the ticket. And an experienced lawyer may even be able to get your ticket dismissed without you going to court.

I am Ed Dorsey, a Carbondale, Mound City and Cairo traffic violation attorney. I have been practicing law in Southern Illinois since 1993 and am dedicated to aggressively standing up for the rights of clients who have been accused of traffic violations, in and out of court.

Acting on Your Behalf to Keep Points Off Your Driving Record

Hiring a lawyer may be the first step toward keeping your driving record clean and avoiding increased insurance rates. Though I cannot make any guarantees, I have had much success helping clients minimize or eliminate penalties for all types of tickets, including the following:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Stop sign violations
  • Red light violations
  • Improper lane usage
  • Driving with a suspended license
  • Driving without a license
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Driving under the influence (DUI)

I also help clients deal with issues related to traffic violations, such as suspension and revocation of regular and commercial driver's licenses. If you are facing a loss of your driving privileges, I can evaluate your case, explain your options, and fight to preserve your license.

My traffic violation practice is not limited to Illinois residents. If you are an out-of-state driver who has been issued a traffic citation while visiting the area or just passing through, I may be able to assist you in resolving your ticket without you having to travel to traffic court in Illinois.
