Traffic Violations

Accused of a Traffic Violation in Missouri or Kansas?

While a speeding ticket or other minor traffic violation may seem like a simple thing to deal with, just paying that fine and sending in that guilty plea can have consequences that outweigh the benefits of "just getting it over with." These include insurance rates rising, as well as jeopardizing your license with points in Missouri or a moving violation in Kansas.

With a simple speeding ticket or other minor traffic violation ticket, I can represent you and handle everything — you won't even need to appear in court. Contact me, Lee's Summit and Kansas City traffic violations lawyer David M. Lurie, today about your speeding or other minor traffic violation ticket so we can prevent or minimize any negative effects on your license.

Facing Traffic Violation Charges

Aside from simple speeding tickets, I am here to seek to mitigate, or minimize, the potential consequences you are facing for any of the following types of traffic violations:

  • DUI/DWI
  • Speeding tickets*
  • Careless or imprudent driving
  • Leaving the scene of an accident/hit-and-run
  • Failure to stop or yield*
  • Running a red light*
  • Distracted driving such as driving while texting
  • Inattentive driving
  • Tailgating
  • Racing
  • Exhibition of speed
  • Failure to yield to an emergency vehicle
  • Giving false information to a police officer
  • Evading or eluding the police
  • Driving while license is suspended or driving after license has been revoked
  • Failure to provide insurance
  • No driver's license or insurance
  • No vehicle registration

Suspended or Revoked Driver's License

A suspended or revoked driver's license can put your livelihood at risk. For example, you may need a car to drive to school or work. However, if your license has been suspended or revoked, you do have options, such as:

  • Undoing tickets you just paid without considering the license consequences
  • Appeals
  • Hardship licenses

An experienced traffic violations defense attorney will be able to help you determine the options before you and the best path to take.

Driving with a suspended or revoked license carries significant penalties. In Kansas, driving when your license has been revoked for an alcohol-related offense carries mandatory jail time. You need an attorney who can present your case in the best possible light and minimize the penalties you face for driving with a suspended license.

My Goal in Representing You

When you have been charged with driving with a suspended license, or leaving the scene of an accident (hit-and-run), there are not many defenses. Your license was suspended — that's a fact. You left the scene — that's a fact. The best defense to these charges is to minimize the impact of any penalties you face. An attorney who works daily with prosecutors to discuss a client's situation and offer reasons for leniency has the experience you need in these situations.
