    Expert advice, outstanding service

    I received a speeding ticket in Burlington, WI for going 15 over the limit. I contacted Richard's office to see if he could help keeping this off my IL driving record. After a few email exchanges, Richard took care of the rest. I did not have to appear in court and the outcome was as Richard promised. His fee was very reasonable. I would not hesitate to use Richard again and will refer others to him if they need a lawyer in Wisconsin.

    Awesome!

    What a great experience. He quickly took care of a ticket in Wisconsin without even having to appear and then dealt with a construction zone ticket in Illinois - getting the ticket reduced to a "normal" speeding ticket with supervision. Saved money on the fines and increased insurance rates. Smooth and painless.... I would highly recommend Mr. Albanese to anyone who might need help with a traffic violation. I know he does criminal work as well and mu guess would be he'd be great at that as well

    Criminal Defense

    My experience with Mr. Albanese was excellent: Richard is very knowledgeable and professional lawyer. I found that he was very easy to talk with and easy to get a hold of, especially when I would reach out to him after hours. Mr. Albanese is very diligent, persistent and effective lawyer who knows how to get the job done for his clients. I was very satisfied with the outcome of my case. He also understood my financial situation and allowed me to make payments during the span of my case. I would highly recommend Mr. Albanese to anyone looking for great results!

    Relief

    I'm an Illinois resident who recieved a speeding ticket at Hwy 50 and Hwy 94. It wasn't a terrible ticket but a violation of the law none the less. I found Richard on line after doing a google search and was most impressed by his clear and concise explantion of Wisconsin Law as it pertains to an Illinois residents. After speaking with Richard on the phone I was even more impressed by his understanding of my situation and his confidence in a favorable outcome. Richard was polite, easy to work with and very accommodating. We only needed to communicate with each other by email once we had an intial phone conversation. His communications were prompt and simple. Best thing of all, I did not need to appear in court in Kenosha! He did all that on my behalf. The final outcome was as he thought it would be and I'm very relieved to have the ticket off my record. Thanks Richard!

    Misdemeanor Speeding Ticket

    I highly recommend Mr. Albanese. I was charged with a Class B Misdemeanor for speeding in IL and was very concerned about having such a conviction on my record and the potential damaging effect on my career. I contacted Mr. Albanese as soon as I found out the serious nature of my charge and received a call back almost immediately. He addressed my concerns in a professional yet sympathetic manner and explained what I could expect to happen at court. On my court date, he negotiated with the prosecutor and was able to get the charges reduced to a petty traffic offense that would not go on my driving record if the fine and court fees were paid by the end of the court supervision date. It was the best outcome I could hope for in my situation. He's the lawyer I will go to if I ever face another legal issue in the future. I recommend him without any hesitation.

    speeding ticket

    Richard helped me defend a speeding ticket I received while driving to the scene of an accident. He was a bit more expensive than his competition, but his approach was more sophisticated than simply pleading guilty and trying to cut a deal. In the end it took 4 appearances, a letter to a supervisor, requesting radar gun data and a few other things, but he stuck with me through the 6-month process. When we initially were offered a poor settlement, his experience was really helpful in crafting a strategy that eventually led us to the settlement we wanted. Whenever I asked for an update he promptly responded, although I wished he was a bit more proactive with touching base prior to each court date. I am pleased with his service, and would recommend him.

    Speeding Ticket

    I'm an Illinois resident and received a speeding ticket in Wisconsin. Not wanting my insurance or driving record to be affected, I contacted Mr. Albanese. He was very quick to respond throughout the process and explained possible outcomes very clearly. He was able to get the speeding ticket brought down to a non-moving violation so that neither my insurance nor driving record will be impacted. In addition, Mr. Albanese appeared in court on my behalf so I did not need to travel the several hours to the county in which I was ticketed.

    Help with out of state speeding ticket.

    I found Richard by searching online for someone to help with a speeding ticket my daughter received in Wisconsin. It was her first ticket and I was worried what it would do to our insurance rates. Richard was very responsive and helpful. He explained to me the impact of the ticket and how the laws differ between WI and IL. He explained how he thought he could help and what to expect. I feel that his fees were fair and he accomplished exactly what we had hoped for. He also did a great job in keeping me informed all along the way. Without hesitation, I would recommend Richard Albanese.

    Excellent Attorney

    My daughter received a speeding ticket in Wisconsin although we live in Illinois. Luckily, Richard is licensed in both states and he spent a lot of time outlining the different options available. Richard was very honest about the possible outcomes and kept us informed throughout the whole process. My daughter had a very favorable outcome and I would highly recommend him.

    IL Resident ticketed in Wisconsin

    While on vacation I was ticketed in a small town in central Wisconsin which I later learned was notorious for being a speed trap. Having a clean record, I did not want what I perceived to be an unfair and unrepresentative charge to stick with me, especially in a way that would impact my insurance costs. I contacted several law firms in the Fond du Lac area to understand my options, thinking that lawyers practicing locally would be the most informed. Many of them asked for a fairly large fee and did not treat me as I felt a businessperson should treat a potential client, with one even telling me, "To be honest, nobody in Wisconsin likes Illinois drivers." I found Richard's website and was encouraged by what seemed to be his knowledge of both Wisconsin and Illinois traffic matters, and how issues in one state can affect residents of the other.

    Richard was responsive via email (within an hour or two, in the evening) as well as via phone (following up the next day). He spoke with me in a very professional manner and made me feel like he actively wanted to reach a good resolution for me (unlike some of the Wisconsin firms with whom I had spoken). Through the process, he kept me up to date and let me know exactly what I needed to do at each stage. Ultimately, he got the citation reduced to a non-moving violation, which was the best result as it would not have an effect on my Illinois license and insurance. I hope I don't require Richard's services again, but if so, I would contact him without hesitation. Highly recommended.
