Prairie Village Speeding & Traffic Ticket Attorney


Don't just pay your Prairie Village speeding or traffic tickets, find a lawyer to amend them to a non-moving violation!

The City of Prairie Village writes thousands of speeding and other traffic tickets every year.  These ticket cost folks hundreds and even thousands of dollars in fines, court costs, and even increased insurance premiums.

There are options other than simply paying the ticket - a Prairie Village speeding/traffic ticket attorney may be able to have the ticket amended to a non-moving violation which will help protect your rights, your insurance premiums, and your driving history.  

Prairie Village Ticket Amendments:In many cases, hiring an Prairie Village speeding/traffic ticket lawyer to represent you may facilitate an agreement with the Prairie Village prosecutor to  amendment the ticket to a non-moving violation such as illegal parking.

A ticket amendment in Prairie Village will usually insure that your insurance premiums are not advesely affected by the ticket.  An speeding/traffic ticket amendment can also keep your driver's license from being suspended.

We can assist people charged with DWS (driving while suspended) in Prairie Village.  A conviction on a  DWS charge can lead to jail time, house arrest, or both.  If you've been charged with driving while suspended in Prairie Village, it is important to consult an Prairie Village traffic attorney to discuss your rights and your options.  We may be able to secure a dismissal of the Prairie Village DWS charge in some cases, negotiate and amendment to another charge in other cases, and/or agree to a diversion (which does not count as a conviction if terms are met) in other circumstances.  As with all cases, each Prairie Village DWS case is unique and must be individually evaluated by an Prairie Village traffic lawyer.

Other Prairie Village traffic charges such as driving without insurance and/or registration violations can also lead to jail time which makes it important to hire a Prairie Village traffic attorney to help with these cases as well.

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 Prairie Village, 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 Prairie Village 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 Prairie Village 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 Prairie Village 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 Prairie Village 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 Prairie Village 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 Prairie Village 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.
