Our Credentials And Experience
Our team of lawyers includes the former elected prosecuting attorney of Jefferson County, Missouri, and our experienced litigators have negotiated and tried thousands of traffic tickets. This breadth of experience enables us to craft a wholistic defense, contemplating both the criminal and civil aspects of state and municipal traffic violations.
We can often negotiate with the prosecutor to amend traffic tickets to nonpoint, nonmoving violations. This keeps the points off your driver’s license and keeps the ticket from showing up by way of higher premiums on your auto insurance bill.
We handle traffic violations and DUI/DWI/DUID arrests throughout eastern Missouri.
