Just $35 - Speeding and Traffic Tickets in St. Charles County, Missouri
When you get pulled over by a police officer, and a speeding or traffic ticket is written in St. Charles County, Missouri, you have one of three different ways to handle the matter. Each option results in certain outcomes. But this is why it is so terribly important that you hire an experienced attorney to represent you and your legal rights.
One way to handle the St. Charles traffic ticket would be to simply sign the back of it, and mail in the appropriate fine. This will dispose of the matter in the eyes of the court, but it will have been at the cost of your pleading guilty to the charges alleged on the St. Charles speeding ticket. Once you plead guilty, the state will then assess a certain number of points to your permanent driving record (for example, a speeding ticket comes with two (2) points). These points will in turn cause your automobile insurance company to raise your rates. And if enough points are assessed over a short period of time, then you risk having your driver’s license suspended (or worse, revoked).
But there is a much better way in which to take care of your tickets. The affordable St. Charles County, Missouri, traffic and speeding ticket lawyer at The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken would like to take over your case, and immediately begin negotiating with the local prosecutor to get the St. Charles traffic ticket amended. With this amendment comes the benefit of a reduced charge (preferably a lesser imposed infraction, like a non-moving violation). This in turn will ensure that a St. Charles speeding ticket attorney can keep your insurance premiums remain the same, and you keep your license and record clear.
