Lee's Summit Traffic Violation Lawyer

Speeding Tickets · Driving on a Suspended License · Other Traffic Offenses

Most people don't pay attention to the number of points on their driver's licenses. If they get a ticket, they often pay the fine without talking to an attorney. They do not know the consequences of paying a ticket — that too many tickets can lead to a suspended driver's license and increased insurance rates.

The best way to prevent problems down the road is to address matters the right way today. If you have received a speeding ticket or another type of traffic ticket, contact a Lee's Summit traffic violation attorney today. At the Law Offices of Gerald W. Furnell, LLC, we draw on our extensive experience to represent people who have received traffic tickets in the Kansas City area and throughout Missouri.

Traffic and Moving Violations Defense

Our clients are people who have been accused of many different types of moving violations, including:

  • Speeding tickets
  • Driving on a suspended license
  • Driving on a revoked license
  • Improper lane change
  • Careless and imprudent driving
  • Improper and illegal turns
  • Following too closely
  • Driving without insurance
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Underage drinking (and driving)
  • Car accidents

Driving While Suspended or Revoked

If you have been caught driving after your license has been suspended or revoked, you may face additional penalties that may include jail time and further license suspension. It is important to speak to an attorney who can help you understand options to continue driving and/or to avoid criminal penalties.

Should I Fight My Traffic Ticket, or Just Pay It and Forget About It?

Each case is different, but for most people it is better to challenge a ticket than to just accept it. When you pay a ticket, the points associated with the offense can put your driver's license in jeopardy. Your driving record also shows a conviction for a moving violation. When you buy car insurance, the insurance agent will see the conviction, which may drive up your insurance rates. It is generally more cost-effective for people to hire an attorney than to gamble with the possibility of increased insurance rates and other costs associated with life without a driver's license.

Under Missouri law, if you accumulate eight points in 18 months, your license is suspended. The months are calculated on a rolling basis, and it can take a long time for points to drop off of your driving record.
