Why hire Andreano Law to fight your Illinois mobile phone/texting ticket?
Simple: To save a lot of money.
Your driving record is very valuable, even though most people don’t know it. The premium you pay for your insurance is based on several variables. By far the most significant variable is your driving record.
Any conviction, even for minor infractions, will show up on your driving record. Then your insurance company will raise your rates. They will stay elevated for 3-5 (sometimes 7!) years. Over this time, you will literally pay thousands in additional premiums. If we are successful in reducing or eliminating your citation, your insurance company will not raise your premium. This is a simple decision based on simple economics.
To verify this, we encourage you to call your insurance agent to ask them what effect a conviction will have on your premium. We will save you thousands.
If you are applying for life insurance, for your family, the amount for which you qualify can be significantly affected by your driving record. Also, if you receive tickets in the future, your record could be clean of this ticket. This can save you what could be additional fine amounts based on the previous violations, as well as preserve the opportunity to achieve another reduction or dismissal because your record still looks clean.”
