A traffic or speeding ticket from Hazelwood Missouri can be handled by our team quickly! 

The main goal will of course be to ensure that you do not suffer from all the negative consequences that can result from an improperly handled ticket. Because a Hazelwood MO traffic ticket can be bungled so badly that it results in all sorts of horrible outcomes.

How so? Most people dispose of their traffic matters the same way:  they pay the fine listed on the back of citation (which is usually about $100). This of course seems like the right thing to do. And if paying the ticket will put the matter to rest, then why not do it?

We will get your Hazelwood MO traffic ticket fixed quickly so that no points go on your driving record 

There is a very good reason why you shouldn’t! Paying the fine on your Hazelwood Missouri speeding ticket is the same thing as pleading guilty to it. Once that fine is paid, you will have admitted guilt to the underlying moving violation (such as speeding, improper lane change, running a stop sign, or whatever).

That guilty plea allows the MO Dept of Revenue to assess points to your permanent driving record. Once points become a part of your driving record, the automobile insurance company that covers your vehicle will greatly increase your monthly rates. That increased monthly rate will last for at least the next three (3) years. And if you already had points on your driving record (or if you get more points in the near future), the state will even go so far as to suspend your driving privileges altogether. 

Our experienced Hazelwood Missouri speeding ticket lawyer will make sure your auto insurance does not go up 

Would you rather avoid this kind of outcome? Wouldn’t it be easier to allow an experienced Hazelwood Missouri traffic ticket attorney fix it for you?

In order to fix your ticket, we will follow a very simple process:  

1) We will retrieve all the information we need from your Hazelwood MO speeding ticket (such as the ticket number, the court date and time, your date of birth, etc.);  

2) We will notify the Hazelwood Municipal Court that The People’s Counsel is handling your ticket (this will virtually eliminate any chance that you’ll ever have to set foot in court, or appear in front of the judge, or talk to the prosecutor);  

3) We will immediately begin to negotiate closely with the local prosecutor to get your traffic ticket amended / reduced to a non-point violation (or more specifically, from a moving violation down to a non-moving violation);  

4) Once the deal is finalized with the prosecutor, and you sign off on the Recommended Plea Bargain, we will send you a copy for your signature;  

5) You will then have approximately thirty (30) days to pay the new fine and court costs (which usually amounts to about a $250 fine and $26.50 court costs);  

6) This will ensure that you receive no points to your permanent driving record, that you will not have to worry about a suspension of your driving privileges, or that a warrant will be issued for your arrest. 


But again, if you are like the vast majority of people out there, you will plead guilty to the ticket by paying the fine. If you have in fact done this recently on your ticket, please still do give us a call. Depending on how recently you plead guilty, there might still be a chance to get that guilty plea overturned. 

Otherwise, you can expect a huge increase to your car insurance. How big of an increase? Even one or two points can easily lead to a bump of about 35% above your current rates. Just to put this into perspective, let’s say that the average monthly cost of auto insurance is about $150. A 35% increase would equal $52.50. You would pay this increased amount for the next thirty-six (36) months. At the end of this period of time, you will have paid out a total of $1,890 extra to your car insurance provider. Just image how that money could be spent!

And if the increased cost doesn’t phase you (because you have tons of extra money laying around), then please do remember that too many points can lead to a suspended license. So for instance, if you receive eight (8) points within a span of eighteen (18) months, the state of Missouri will take away your driving privileges for thirty (30) days. If the idea of catching rides from friends and family for that long does not appeal to you, then you definitely do not want points on your driving record.
