Sometimes, it is better to just take a close look at the price comparison between two different services. This can make things easier when you are making a decision.

This is certainly true when you are trying to decide on whether or not to hire a St Louis speeding ticket lawyer. Because the cost comparison between you doing things by yourself vs. hiring an experienced traffic attorney from The People’s Counsel is huge!

So let’s take a close look at the numbers:

If you wish to handle your St Louis traffic ticket by yourself, all you have to do is simply pay the fine listed on the back of the ticket. This is usually around $100.


But paying the fine is the same thing as pleading guilty, which will greatly increase your car insurance. The average monthly car insurance is about $150. If we assume you receive only two (2) points to your driving record, your insurance rates will increase by about 35%. This will equal an increase of $52.50 per month extra. But that rate increase of $52.50 will last for at least the next three (3) years. If you total up the month by month increased rates over that period, you’ll end up paying an extra $1,890 to your auto insurance provider.

To make it clear, handling your St Louis speeding ticket by yourself will cost you:
$100 fine
$1,890 increased car insurance
Total: $1,990

Now let’s take a look at what happens when you contact The People’s Counsel, and our expert St Louis traffic ticket defense lawyer fixes your ticket:

If we are talking about a straightforward St Louis traffic ticket (like running a stop sign, or a speeding 10-15 miles over the limit), then we charge a relatively low amount for our services. For that amount, we will get your Missouri traffic ticket reduced from a moving violation down to a non-moving violation. This is the goal because non-moving violations do not come with any points to your driving record. If there are no points to worry about, then your car insurance will remain the same.


Once we get the ticket amended down, the prosecutor will assess a new fine. This new fine will be higher than the original $100 you saw on the back of your St Louis speeding ticket. The reason for the increase is because the prosecutor knows he/she is doing you a favor by reducing the ticket to a non-moving violation, and therefore avoiding a steep increase to your car insurance rates. As a result, this new fine will be closer to $250. And the court will charge its normal operating costs which usually come in at about $50.

So, having a St Louis traffic ticket attorney from The People’s Counsel to fix your citation will cost you:
$30 – $60 attorney fee
$250 fine
$50 court cost
Total: $330 – $360

If this sounds like a much better deal, then please do give us a call! Our team will get the information we need, and start working on your ticket immediately. But don’t wait too long. If you miss a required court hearing, the judge will issue a warrant for your arrest. So get in touch with us as soon as possible. We look forward to hearing from you!
