Are you looking for an attorney to help you with a speeding or other traffic ticket in Mission, Kansas?


 

The City of Mission writes thousands of speeding, stop light, stop sign, signal, and other tickets each year. If you find yourself with one of these tickets, you may not realize the negative effects they can have on your driver's license and your insurance rates.

The City of Mission offers "amendments" for many speeding and traffic tickets.  These amendments will serve to protect your insurance rates and save your driver's license from the negative effects that a moving violation can have. 

If you do not retain a Mission speeding/traffic ticket attorney to amend your ticket to a non-moving violation, a speeding ticket or other moving violation in Mission can trigger a rise in your insurance rates which could cost you hundreds or even thousands of dollars per year.  This negative effect can take years to decay.

A Mission speeding ticket or moving violation can also lead to a driver's license suspension.  While every state is different (Missouri, for example is a "points state," while Kansas just counts the total number of violations in during certain time periods), it is important to remember that every moving violation will have a negative effect on your license and oculd eventually be a part of a license suspension.  For this reason, we recommend hiring an experienced Mission speedin/traffic ticket lawyer to amend every ticket you receive.

This law office can amend most Mission traffic tickets to non-moving violations such as illegal parking which will not have negative effects on your license or your insurance rates.  

We can often amend or "divert" other Mission traffic tickets such as driving while suspended.  It is important to retain a Mission traffic attorney for any Mission driving while suspended (DWS) charge as pleading guilty to a DWS charge could mean jail time or house arrest.  A guilty plea on driving while suspended in Mission could also result in an additional driver's license suspension that could span years in length, so it is very important to hire a Mission traffic attorney familiar with the DWS laws in the State of Kansas.

This law office can also help with expired registration or no insurance charges in Mission.  If you have received one of these tickets, call us immediately as failure to properly take care of these tickets can lead to jail time or a driver's licesne suspension.  Just as its important to retain an experienced Mission traffic attorney for a Mission DWS charge, it is extremely important to have a Mission traffic attorney on your side if you've been charged with no insurance or a registration violation in the City of Mission.

Frequently asked questions about a driver's license suspension in Kansas:

How exactly can my driver's license get suspended?

These are the infractions that will result in the suspension of your Kansas driver's license:

  • Conviction of three or more moving violations within a specified time period.  The State does not care if the violations were collected in Mission, elsewhere in Kansas, or even in another state - they will still suspend your driver's license for too many violations!
  • Refusal to submit to a chemical test to determine your BAC
  • Failing to appear for court date or failing to pay a ticket from Olathe or other jurisdiction.  We see this one all too often - folks either can't afford to pay a ticket or forget all about it.  When the Court date is missed, the City or County will suspend that person's driver's license and issue a warrant for your arrest.  If you have missed your Court date, call us immediately!  We can often enter an appearance on your behalf, get the warrant recalled, and take steps to get your driver's license back in good standing.
  • Failing to maintain continuous liability insurance on your vehicle.  If you drive your car without insurance, you can be suspended for a very lengthy period of time - even if you haven't been in an accident.  Do not drive without insurance in Mission or elsewhere!  If you do let your insurance lapse and a ticket is issued, call us immediately so we can help you avoid a driver's license suspension for the charge.
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs or having a BAC level of .08% or above.  Almost everyone charged with a DUI will also be subject to a driver's license suspension ranging from 30 days to life, depending on their driving history.  If you have been charged with DUI in Mission or elsewhere in Kansas you only have 10 days from the date of your arrest to request an administrative hearing with the State or your license will be automatically suspended for a period ranging from 30 days to life!  If you have been charged with DUI in Mission or elsewhere in Kansas, call us immediately so we can file the correct documents to preserve your driving privileges!
  • Transporting an open container of liquor or cereal malt beverage (3.2 beer)

Can I get a hardship driver’s license?
Kansas laws do not allow the issuance of a hardship license, that would allow a person to drive during the length of their suspension, revocation, cancellation or
disqualification period.

I went through a period of time where I racked up a bunch of tickets.  This is hurting my ability to get a license.  Is there anything an Mission traffic law office can do to help me get my driving privileges back?

In many cases, the answer is yes - we can help you get your Kansas driver's license.  We specialize in "hard cases" that other traffic attorneys in Mission and Johnson County are unwilling to take.  We can help you in several ways. 

First, if there are tickets that haven't been paid, we can enter appearances on those cases and attempt to amend or "fix" any moving violations you have pending. 

Second, if past tickets are going to be or are the cause of a driver's license suspension, then we may be able to vile a "motion to withdraw plea," where we can actually "undo" the tickets you've paid in the past.  

When dealing with past tickets or multiple tickets, the situation can get very complicated very quickly.  Call us today at (913) 764-5010 to set up an appointment to discuss your situation and to find a solution to get back your Kansas driver's license.
