Traffic Violation Defense Lawyer In Missouri

A momentary lapse of attention and you have run a stop sign, followed too closely or changed lanes without signaling. Sometimes that’s all it takes to draw the attention of the police.

Traffic and speeding tickets can happen to anyone, but it is important to take every citation seriously. If this is your first traffic ticket, you stand the best chance of getting a positive outcome in court. Contact my Independence, Missouri, office as soon as possible after your ticket to minimize the damage to your driving record and to your life.

Preserve Your License And Driving Privileges

With every traffic citation or drunk driving offense, you accumulate points against your driving record. After just a few points, you may notice your insurance rates go up significantly. With more points, you may face the loss of your driver’s license.

In my practice, I handle a wide spectrum of traffic violations defense, including:

  • Excessive speed
  • Careless or imprudent driving
  • Failure to yield or to stop
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI/DWI)
  • Minor in possession (MIP)
  • Violating the open container law
  • Tampering with an ignition interlock device
  • Driving without a license
  • Driving on a suspended or revoked license
  • Failing to have or to produce insurance
  • Driving a vehicle without the owner’s consent
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Eluding police
  • Interfering with an officer

Each municipality handles traffic violations differently. In some cases, you don’t even need to miss work: I can appear in court for you. If you live out of the area or even out of state, I can work with you remotely and lessen the chance that you will have to return to the area for a court appearance.
