Westwood Speeding & Traffic Ticket Attorney


Paying a Westwood speeding or traffic ticket can negatively affect your insurance rates and could lead to a driver's license suspension.  Call our traffic law office to learn how we can "fix" or amend most Westwood speeding and traffic tickets to non-moving violations such as "illegal parking" that will not raise your insurance rates or negatively affect your license!
The City of Westwood's police officers write thousands of speeding and other traffic tickets every year.  The impact of these speeding/traffic tickets can go far beyond the fine listed on the back and can raise insurance premiums or even cause your driver's license to be suspended.

In many instances, you will also have to wait hours at a ticket docket for your case to be called, necessitating time off from work or away from your family.

Westwood tickets do not have to simply be paid, however.  Hiring an experienced Westwood speeding/traffic ticket attorney can help protect your rights, your insurance premiums, and your driving history.  

Westwood speeding ticket amendments and moving violation amendments:

In many cases, hiring a Westwood speeding/traffic ticket attorney to represent you in Westwood Municipal Court may facilitate an agreement with Westwood prosecutors for an amendment of your speeding and/or traffic tickets.

For instance, this firm can often amend Westwood speeding and traffic tickets to non-moving violations such as illegal parking.

A ticket amendment in Westwood will usually insure that your insurance premiums are not negatively affected by the ticket.  An amendment can also keep your driver's license from being suspended in some circumstances as well as it will not count as a moving violation on your driving record.

As a bonus, in almost all cases, we can appear in Court for you, saving your hours of time wasted getting to court and waiting for your case to be called.

Frequently asked questions about driver's license suspensions in Westwood & elsewhere 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 Westwood, 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 Westwood 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 Westwood 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 Westwood 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 Westwood 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 a Westwood 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 Westwood 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.
