Steve Ahillen Featured in ClineWood University’s Webinar Series, ‘Fighting and Winning a Red Light Ticket’


Steve Ahillen was featured in ClineWood University’s Webinar series presenting, ‘Fighting and Winning a Red Light Ticket’.

Steve A. Ahillen, attorney at Roberts Perryman, was given a Hannibal red light ticket matter to discuss with a potential client. The typical route trucking company owners had taken, prior to Steve’s strategy, was to go ahead and pay off the driver’s fine vs. taking the time and money to fight it in the Hannibal court system. Hannibal would mail the owner a letter threatening a charge of “interference with an investigation” if they refused, or ignored, the demand to identify their driver allegedly driving through the red light.

With a 100% success rate representing carriers from a couple tractor trailers to huge motor carrier operations with thousands of units, Steve’s results have been the same every time.

Steve discussed the principles he applied to win the difficult challenges and how each time the municipality attempted (still does) a new angle Steve outmaneuvered them.

Steve’s practice at Roberts Perryman is focused on Transportation, Insurance Defense and Coverage. He is licensed in Illinois and Missouri and practices in both state and federal court. Steve graduated from DePaul University College of Law (2011). He also obtained a Certificate in Business Law upon graduation. Additionally, Steve is published in the Journal of American Law, Spring 2015, “Ethical Pitfalls in Social Media Discovery – A Review of the Hazards in Obtaining and Preserving Social Media Evidence.”
