Effective Traffic Ticket and DWI Defense
for Springfield and Southwest Missouri


  Stop!  Before pleading guilty to a traffic violation, please read this.

If you have received a traffic ticket such as speeding, careless and imprudent driving (C&I), failure to drive right, or running a stop sign, it is tempting to plead guilty and pay the fine without first seeking legal advice. Lawyers cost money, and money is tight in today's economy. However, pleading guilty to a traffic ticket is an automatic admission of guilt and, if the ticket is for a moving violation, points will be assessed against your driving privilege. Convictions for traffic violations can be used by your insurance company to raise your rates, costing you more money in the long run.
