Our Process

Contact us. Because every circuit court, district court, and municipal court in the Kansas City  area utilizes different procedures (including their applicable fines, court costs, and other issues), we need to obtain additional information about your specific criminal charge, DUI, traffic or speeding ticket.  You can provide us this  information via our Free Estimate Form, via email, or by calling our office at (816) 229-2708.

Discuss your case.  Our criminal and traffic lawyers will then discuss with you or will contact you back regarding your case.  For many criminal and DUI cases, we will provide you information regarding: (1) the specific charges against you; (2) an overview of the process of examining and addressing your criminal charge; and (3) the amount of our attorney fees; and (4) further information and the process of addressing your criminal charge.  Depending on the severity of the charge, we may request that you come to our office for an in-person consultation.  For simple traffic and speeding tickets, we can give you a quote for: (1) our attorney fee; and (2) our estimate of the price for amending or obtaining a diversion regarding your speeding or traffic ticket(s).  The fine amounts, court costs, and attorney fees vary based on the individual jurisdiction, the severity of the charge, your driving record, and various other factors.

Payment. Once we agree on representation, we have a variety of payment options.  You can pay via credit card (either over the phone or using our credit card payment link) or cash (in person only).  For most speeding tickets, we request that you make an up front payment of our attorney fee and the estimated costs of the fine amount and court costs, and we will then make pay to the court on your behalf once your ticket has been amended without you ever needing to appear in court (in most cases).  For many criminal and DUI cases, we are agreeable to allowing payment plans.

We Represent You.  Our office will then confirm our engagement regarding your case, and will provide you with a receipt for your payment to our office.  Our representation of you will depend on the type of case.  Further information on our specific representation for criminal, DUI, and traffic & speeding tickets can be found on the following pages.

Without fail, getting arrested or convicted of DUI/DWI is a traumatic experience that will upset your life. You are here because you need a DUI/DWI lawyer in the Kansas City area.  The penalties for a conviction are severe. You may face steep fines, a suspension of your license or even jail time. If you are convicted of a DUI/DWI charge, the conviction will typically remain on your record forever. Investigation of your background will reveal the conviction to all interested employers.

Even if you decide not to take your case to trial, it is important to have an experienced DUI attorney to review your case, file appropriate motions, and negotiate the best possible plea deal.  Don’t fight the prosecutor’s office alone.

It is possible, in some cases, to reduce the DUI/DWI charge to a different offense that carries fewer penalties. At times, much of the evidence in your case can be challenged by a skilled lawyer.  A skilled DUI/DWI attorney may minimize the severe penalties associated with a conviction. Sometimes the defense can even get a case dismissed if the driver’s constitutional rights were violated during the arrest. It is appropriate to question the qualifications and judgment of officers who administered field sobriety tests, and Breathalyzer tests may not be reliable.  Other times, plea bargaining may be the best strategy for getting DUI/DWI charges reduced or dismissed.

  • Increased Insurance Premiums
  • Job or Employment Implications
  • Driver’s License Suspension or Revocation
  • Possible Jail Time
  • Missouri Speeding Ticket Lawyer

Missouri Speeding Ticket Lawyer

In most Missouri courts, we can work with the prosecutor to reach an agreement to amend your charge from speeding to a nonmoving violation such as a “defective equipment,” “illegal parking,” or another type charge that does not result in points against your driving record or have the other serious negative consequences associated with a speeding conviction. As part of a typical plea agreement, there is typically an increase to the original fine amount listed on the ticket (some have fee schedules, while others use the general rule of thumb of “doubling” the fine listed on the ticket). The amount of the increased fine depends on the specific jurisdiction, the speed you were going, your driving record, and other factors.

Kansas Speeding Ticket Lawyer

In Kansas, the typical process is slightly different. While some cities and municipalities allow a plea/modification process similar to that in Missouri, other jurisdictions allow for a diversion agreement. Under a diversion agreement, an initial application is made, and if approved, the driver must agree to abide by certain restrictions for a prescribed period of time in order to have the speeding ticket amended to a nonmoving violation. This diversion process is becoming more and more prevalent and has similar costs to “amending” a ticket.

Great service and very convenient. Highly recommend.

Barry H. - Independence, MO

I was running late to work one morning and in my haste I forgot to watch my speedometer closely. Bam!! A very nice KCMO policeman gave me a speeding ticket but he could have made it worse... A quick internet search brought me to Brandon Kane's website and within a few days Brandon had taken care of my ticket for an excellent price! The process was very easy and I highly recommend the Kane Law Office to anyone who needs help with a traffic violation. Thanks again Brandon!

Sam S.

This was done quicker, more efficient, and was a lot easier than it had been in the past with other law offices that had done the same thing for me. Brandon is very trust worthy, personable, and knowledgeable. I knew when he said he would get it taken care of; that it would be take care of.....I was surprised at how quickly it was done. There’s no doubt in my mind that I will go back to Brandon when/if I need help with any legal matters in the future. Check him out….you’ll be glad you did.

Ryan O. - Kansas City, MO

My daughter got two tickets in KCMO. A speeding ticket for speeding 36+ MPH over the limit and No Proof of Insurance. Brandon's fee was very reasonable and he kept both tickets off her driving record! Nice guy too!

Conetha R. - Kansas City, MO

Brandon was referred to me by one of his associates, after an initial conversation I decided to utilize his services. Very happy with the outcome, Brandon is professional, effective and courteous. I would not hesitate to use Brandon for future legal issues nor would I hesitate referring friends.

Patrick - Riverside, MO

The Kane Law Office made my bad driving experience into a painless one. They are very quick to respond and communicate every option that you have available. After agreeing to represent me, my case was closed within 1 business day! I would highly recommend the Kane Law Firm to anyone who is having an issue with traffic tickets. 5* Yelp Review!

J.W. - Platte City, MO

I highly recommend Kane Law. They handled my case quickly and affordably. Professionalism and communication is superb. 5* Yelp review

Tim - St. Louis, MO

As others have said, communication with Brandon was stellar. He promptly handled my traffic ticket and provided me with a receipt of payment to the city. His price was very fair as well. 5* Yelp review!

Shane M. - Independence, MO

It was easy. I just e-mailed my info to the Kane Law Office professionals, and they took care of my speeding ticket at an affordable, up-front price.

Dane L.

I worked with Brandon on a traffic ticket. This was my first time dealing with something like this, and he was great about clearly explaining what my options were and what I could expect. Communication was great and he had the issue resolved in no time! I would highly recommend him. 5* Yelp review!

Kara H. - Mission, KS

Brandon did a great job taking care of the speeding ticket my son received. Since we had moved here from the east coast, he explained the process (which is different than what is done in NC) and handled everything. I would highly recommend him.

Laurie - Olathe, KS

Very easy to work with, even responded to emails and phone call after hours. Highly recommend.

Brad A. - Independence, MO

I have to say I was very surprised how responsive he was in getting the ticket amended... I met him in person to talk about the process. He was very professional and kept me informed by email. Emails were sent almost immediately after my ticket was amended. Definitely a trustworthy person - I didn't worry a bit about getting my speeding ticket taken care of after talking to Brandon. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family and to anyone who reads this review.

Speeding ticket client - Kansas City, MO

After my initial contact, we returned my call within a couple of hours, and had all the answers to my myriad of questions. He was knowledgeable in the county in which my violation occurred, accurately explained the detailed process of how to go about getting it resolved, and all costs associated with it....The pricing was fair and reasonable, and clearly explained where the fees generated from. I would 100% recommend Brandon Kane for any traffic violations.

Geoffrey - Independence, MO

I worked with Brandon Kane on a traffic ticket I had received and not to mention it was pretty last minute too. He was great to work with and made the experience as easy as possible. I'm hoping to not ever need him again but he will be the first one I recommend to anyone!

Sarah B. - Kansas City, MO

I happened across Brandon Kane while looking for an attorney for a traffic violation. Brandon helped me immediately, charged a very reasonable fee and resolved the matter within days. I enthusiastically recommend Brandon Kane for legal services.

Laura A. - Leawood, KS

From the moment I called Mr. Kane he treated me with respect. My case was literally handled overnight! Never before have I experienced such excellent customer service when dealing with a traffic ticket amendment. I will definitely refer anyone in need of an affordable attorney here!

Mindy S. - Kansas City, MO

I recently had the misfortune to get a speeding ticket on my way to work. I have a spotless driving record and haven't had any traffic tickets for many years so was very concerned about what this would do to my insurance rates. After filling out an online form, I got a call from Brandon Kane within a few hours. He explained the entire process and told me what the fee would be. I was then able to pay the fee online and a few days later, received an email indicating the ticket was taken care of. He was very friendly, professional and speedy! This was a great service I would recommend to anyone.

Gina S. - Buckner, MO

The Kane Law Office ... handled everything at a much cheaper rate than other lawyers in town. After contacting Brandon he said the process was real simple and stepped me thru everything I needed to know and how it all worked... All I had to do was give him the ticket information and took it from there, updating me whenever something new came up and finally when it was all said and done. As promised Brandon took care of everything and my ticket was reduced down so that it did not affect my insurance, faster than I thought also. It was completely hassle free and handled in a very professional manner, less stressful than I thought possible. Can’t thank them enough!

T. Wilson

Brandon was a wonderful lawyer. He was quick and efficient when I hired him for a speeding ticket I received. I called him about 3 weeks prior to the court date and he had everything settled within a week of me calling him. He was true to his word on how he was going to proceed with my case. He kept me well informed and provided detailed invoices on what was done.

Kim

I used Brandon Kane to assist with a traffic violation and would highly recommend his services. He was very responsive and took care of things very quickly. Great job!

Luke L. - Kansas City, MO

Brandon was awesome when dealing with my speeding ticket. I talked to my insurance broker and he told me to get my ticket taken care of. Brandon emailed me back within 5 minutes, His price was great and my ticket was taken care of 24 hours later, paid and done. This was so easy and worth not having this ticket on my record. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a quick ticket fix.
