The benefits of getting the ticket fixed by a lawyer far outweigh any other option. I could list many reason, but I will stick to just a few main ones.
First of all, it is possible to take care of a St. Louis speeding ticket without the aid of an attorney. You can simply sign the back of the ticket, and mail in the associated fine. This would take of the things, but the unseen consequences of doing so can be harsh.
If you do not allow an attorney to handle your St. Louis traffic ticket for you, there is a very good likelihood that you will have points assessed to your permanent driving record. “Points” are like little red flags that make you look as if you are a poor driver. This in turn will allow your automobile insurance provider to increase your monthly premiums. And if you receive too many points in a compressed period of time, you can lose your license.
Instead of this taking place, it is far better to simply have an experienced traffic law firm take over your case. The affordable St. Louis speeding ticket lawyers at The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken have been fixing tickets for people for over ten (10) years. Our goal is to get the citation amended down to a non-moving violation. We do this by carefully negotiating with the local prosecutor, and asking the judge to reduce the charges against you. In almost every case, the prosecutor is willing to lower the ticket to a non-moving violation because he or she does not want to have a docket full of people every night in their courthouse. Often, the prosecutor is happy to see an attorney handling the traffic citation, because they know that such a scenario will take only a few minutes of their time.
In addition, we are frequently able to ensure that you will not have to make an appearance in court (this is something we will do on your behalf). All of these services are performed on your behalf at an incredibly reasonable fee. For a standard St. Louis speeding ticket, we charge $40.
We have two locations: in the Central West End, at 1 North Taylor, St. Louis, MO 63108; and in the Twin Cities of Festus / Crystal City, at 1000 Truman Blvd (Highway 61/67) 63019. The consultation to discuss your legal matters is free of charge. So contact us today to learn more!!
