10 Reasons To Choose Alan E. Jones, Attorney at Law

Traffic law is more complex and nuanced than you may think. Each township and county prosecutes DUI and traffic violations slightly differently — and in Illinois, traffic laws change regularly. As an experienced criminal defense lawyer and former chair of the Traffic Law Section of the Illinois State Bar Association, I know that traffic defense is as complex as any criminal matter, and traffic charges can have major consequences. A knowledgeable attorney has the ability to defend your future. Here are 10 reasons you should choose me, Alan E. Jones, as your defense lawyer:

1. I Know the Law

I have been defending individuals against criminal charges, with a focus on DUI and traffic violations, for more than 30 years. I know traffic law thoroughly, and I am passionate about defending my clients’ rights. My successful defense of hundreds of clients against the most simple to the most complex of traffic violations demonstrates my effectiveness in this area of law.

2. I Focus on Each Individual Client and Their Unique Needs

I will carefully consider the facts of your case, listen to your goals and then create a plan that best meets your individual needs. Whether you are a local driver or an out-of-state driver dealing with the repercussions of traffic offenses in Illinois, I can help.

3. I Go to Court With Integrity and Confidence

I know when to fight or negotiate, and prosecutors know that about me. My approach is straightforward, and it is one of the many reasons I am taken seriously in the courts. We will first seek a dismissal of the charges, but if that is not possible, we will work together toward the best possible outcome.

4. I Don’t Mince Words, and I Don’t Make Promises I Can’t Keep

When you work with me, you can expect to get the truth and not a sugar-coated version of what I think you want to hear. From the very beginning, I will give you an honest assessment of your case and the possible outcomes you face.

5. I Make Certain My Clients are Prepared and Informed From the Very Start

I strive to advise my clients of all their options and keep them informed of the status of their cases at all times throughout the process.

6. I'm Accessible to My Clients

I believe that a client should have access to his or her attorney, which is why I return all phone calls and emails from my clients as soon as possible.

7. I Have Experience That You Can Rely on

I have been providing clients with successful defense against speeding, drunk driving and traffic accidents involving a moving violation, as well as revoked or suspended license reinstatement and other charges, since 1989. I use my experience and understanding of the various court systems to help get my clients’ charges reduced or dismissed altogether.

8. I Know How to Get Good People Out of Bad Situations

I understand the challenges you may be going through due to a drunk driving charge. Most of the time, I am defending good people who have gotten themselves into a bad situation. Now they need a helping hand to get out of it.

9. I Make Attorney’s Fees Easy

For most cases, I offer a flat fee, which means you will know exactly what the representation is going to cost you from the beginning. My rates are reasonable, and I also accept credit cards because I understand that most people do not have money set aside for surprise legal expenses.

10. I Offer Free Consultations and a Convenient Office Location

My office is conveniently located in a former union building in Waukegan. I regularly represent people from all over the United States who have been ticketed in Lake County, and I handle driver’s license reinstatement cases involving any Illinois license.
