Criminal & Traffic

Meyer Capel attorneys handle state criminal and traffic cases. These services are provided throughout east central Illinois on matters ranging from petty traffic offenses such as speeding to non-probationable felonies.

Over the past seven years, as the legislature continues to impose mandatory minimum penalties and area prosecutors take increasingly harsh positions, the need for such services has grown significantly. The most significant changes involve driving under the influence and traffic cases and domestic battery cases where the consequences of a conviction go beyond any penalty imposed by the Court.
