Help With Traffic Violations And License Suspensions
Even a seemingly minor traffic infraction can lead to serious consequences. Traffic crimes are prosecuted with more severity as an individual has more marks on his or her criminal record. Consequences can go from a simple ticket and fine to driver’s license revocation or jail time.
That is why it is crucial to defend yourself against even first-offense tickets. Keeping your record clear helps you keep your license in good standing, helping you meet the demands of daily life and your obligations to your loved ones.
Local Experience And Decades Of Positive Results
At Shipman & DeHardt, P.C., our attorneys help people with a wide range of traffic offenses throughout the Kansas City metro area in Missouri. They have decades of experience in a wide range of legal matters, with a strong emphasis on criminal defense. They handle a wide range of traffic ordinance violations, moving violations and license protection issues, including:

- Driver’s license suspensions and revocations
Protecting Your Driver’s License Requires Immediate Action
When you are pulled over and arrested for drunk driving, your driver’s license status is almost immediately jeopardized. Your license will automatically be suspended within a matter of days if you do not challenge the motion, even if you have not yet been found guilty of a DUI or DWI.
Challenging actions against your license status must happen in administrative proceedings with the DMV, rather than in the criminal court system. As your attorney, I can represent you in either venue to help ensure your criminal record and driving record remain clear.
