St. Louis Traffic Offense Attorney

Have you been charged with a traffic violation in the St. Louis Area?

Nearly everyone at some time in his or her driving career receives a traffic ticket. Even drivers who consider themselves attentive and respectful of traffic laws make occasional mistakes or miscalculations which can end up in a traffic ticket which has stiff fines, can adversely affect their auto insurance, and add points to their driving record. Habitual offenders may find themselves facing more serious consequences when the result of too many tickets ends up in a license suspension. Those who commit serious traffic offenses, such as driving with a suspended license, causing injury or property damage due to a negligence-based accident, or driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol may find themselves facing serious criminal charges with severe penalties. Because your driving privileges impact your ability to work and care for yourself and your family, you may wish to fight any traffic violations to avoid the negative consequences.

In all of these cases, you will need a dedicated traffic ticket attorney on your side who will fight the charges against you with a determined and skilled effort and an aggressive approach. At the Whiteley Law Firm, you can depend on the commitment and legal skills of a St. Louis traffic violation lawyer who has handled hundreds of traffic violations and criminal cases throughout his career. Attorney Kevin Whiteley understands how important your traffic ticket may be to you and offers personal service that is a cut above the norm.

Traffic Violations and Consequences

Common traffic violations include speeding, failing to stop at a stop sign or traffic signal, improper lane changes, tailgating, failure to yield, failure to use turn signals, failure to register a vehicle, driving without insurance, careleess and imprudent driving, reckless driving, drag racing or hot rodding, and more serious offenses such as drunk or drug-impaired driving, driving with a suspended or revoked license, or leaving the scene of an accident. While most traffic offenses are considered infractions, and thus do not result in anything more than the imposition of a fine, should the traffic violation cause either a personal injury or property damage, more serious charges, such as a felony or misdemeanor, could occur, which carry the possibility of a jail sentence.

Many times, with the right traffic offense attorney, the charges against you can be amended to a non-moving violation in an effort to avoid any possibility of a jail sentence or from points being assessed against your driving privilege.

If you or a friend or family member has received a traffic ticket in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Jefferson County, Franklin County, or any of the local municpalities, contact an experienced St. Louis traffic ticket lawyer today to avoid the consequences of a traffic violation conviction.
