An experienced St. Louis traffic ticket attorney can fix a speeding ticket so long as he or she understands how the traffic court and criminal justice system works. Many attorneys may indicate that taking care of a traffic ticket is relatively easy (and sometimes it is), but there are many situations in which a law firm with years of experience can save your day.
First of all, having a St. Louis speeding ticket lawyer fix a ticket for you is not the only option. You of course do have the right to simply plead guilty to the charges listed on the face of the citation by signing the back of the ticket, and mailing in the associated fine. This will certainly take care of the issue, but when you handle things in this way, the state of Missouri will assess a certain number of points to your permanent driving record. “Points” are like little red flags that make it look as if you are bad driver. As a result, your automobile insurance company will increase your monthly premiums. And if enough points accumulate over a compressed period of time, you can lose your driver’s license. For instance, if you receive eighteen (18) points within a eighteen month period of time, the state will suspend your license for one year.
But the affordable traffic ticket lawyers at The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken have a much different plan in mind. Our goal would be to get the ticket reduced to a non-moving violation by opening up a negotiation with the local prosecutor. A non-moving violation does not come with any points, which in turn keeps your car insurance under control (and your record stays clean). In addition, our goal would be to make sure that you do not have to appear in court at all. And we want to do it all at an affordable price. The fees for a standard St. Louis traffic ticket start at $40.
