Protect Your Driver's License And Criminal Record
If you already have points on your driver's license, one more ticket may lead to a driving while license suspended (DWS) charge. This is a serious offense that can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony.
At The Gordon Law Firm, LLC, we help people fight DWS and other traffic offense charges. As criminal law attorneys, we have experience protecting people's rights. We can defend you against traffic charges ranging from violations to misdemeanors and felonies. If your driver's license is at risk, contact a Kansas City, Missouri, traffic law lawyer as soon as possible.
License Suspensions And Additional Traffic Offenses
In Missouri, driving on suspended license is a misdemeanor, not just a traffic ticket. It is a 12-point violation, which means your license will be automatically suspended again. If you plead guilty to DWS, you will have a misdemeanor or felony conviction on your criminal record for life.
We can represent you during the administrative and criminal parts of your DWS case. We need to take care of the underlying reason for the license suspension. Your license can be suspended for issues such as an unpaid parking ticket, too many points on your license, an auto insurance lapse, failure to pay child support or not updating your address with the Department of Revenue. In many cases, the driver is unaware that his or her license has been suspended.
In addition to DWS, we defend people from charges such as speeding, reckless driving, driving while license revoked (DWR), leaving the scene of an accident and DUI/DWI. Many times, we can represent clients at hearings so they do not have to attend. We often represent people from other cities and states who were ticketed in the Kansas City area and do not want to come back for the hearing.
