ONLY $35 FOR MOST ST LOUIS TRAFFIC TICKETS
It is not unusual for a police officer to issue several tickets on one stop. The officer may have pulled you over initially for speeding. But other tickets could be written as well (for example, you are not able to show proof of valid car insurance, or your seatbelt was not secured). Even though multiple tickets are issued, we can still help you out!!
To begin with, if you were to simply sign the back of the ticket and pay the fine, that is the same thing as pleading guilty to the charge. When this happens, the state of Missouri will assess points to your permanent driving record. “Points” are like little red flags that make it look as if you are a bad driver. This in turn will cause your automobile insurance provider to jack up your monthly rates.
So if you have more than one ticket, pleading guilty to all of them will result in quite a few points going onto your record. But it doesn’t have to end up that way!! In fact, our specialty involves getting the tickets reduced from a moving violation (like speeding, which will come with at least two (2) points) to a non-moving violation. A non-moving violation (like “illegal parking”) does not come with any points (and therefore none of the negative consequences described above).
The process by which we get the ticket(s) reduced is fairly straightforward: we negotiate a deal with the local prosecutor. This deal can sometimes be done rather quickly. And sometimes the process of working something out with the prosecutor can take a few meetings. But in the end, our goal will always be the same: to get the ticket reduced!!
