Before assuming responsibility for a speeding ticket, you should understand what options you have at your defense. Rather than pleading guilty, you can either contest your traffic tickets, and take your ticket to trial. Or, you may want to get your ticket amended to a no-point, non-moving violation. If you choose to plead “not guilty,” you won’t have to fight it alone. Contact Kitchin Law firm today and get the representation that you need to build your case!
Contesting a traffic ticket can feel like a burden when trying to do it on your own. Our traffic lawyer can save you time and stress. We’ll speak with a prosecutor, and work to get your traffic ticket amended to a non-moving violation so it doesn’t appear on your driving record.
Traffic tickets can cause your rates to increase by 22-30%. Getting your traffic ticket reduced to a non-moving violation not only keeps points off your record, but can save you the hassle of paying high insurance premiums. Learn more about traffic tickets and insurance premiums.
Kansas is a moving violation state. If you accumulate 3 or more moving violation convictions in a year, the state can suspend your license. Missouri is a point system state. When convicted of a moving traffic violation, 2 to 12 points will be recorded on your driving record. Too many points can lead to a license suspension. Our attorney will fight to protect your driving privileges and keep your record clean.
When facing a speeding ticket in Missouri or Kansas, your first question may be, “how do I get out of it?” While there is no guarantee that your violation will get dismissed or amended, the best step you can take to protect your record is to find a traffic attorney to represent you.

As you consider how to approach handling your speeding ticket, ask yourself two questions: Would it be easier to avoid a trial and pay the fine up front? Can I run the risk of having a moving violation conviction record on my driving record?
If you elect to contest your violation, it will then be taken to a trial, where you’ll have the opportunity to defend yourself. There is no guarantee fighting your traffic ticket will bring the results you’re hoping for. However, a traffic attorney can be a strong advocate for your case, and will have the eyes to identify any potential flaws and work to lessen penalties and fines associated with the violation.
