Speeding Ticket Lawyer | Traffic Attorney | Kansas City

Kansas City Speeding Ticket Lawyer

If you have been issued a speeding ticket in the Kansas City area, our speeding ticket lawyers are here to assist you with the goal of amending or reducing your speeding ticket to a no-point, non-moving violation so that it will not affect your driving record or insurance.

Our traffic ticket and speeding ticket attorneys have assisted hundreds clients with getting their traffic law violations and speeding tickets amended, reduced, or dismissed throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area, and are licensed to practice in Missouri and Kansas.

Why you should amend a speeding ticket

Speeding tickets are considered a moving violation or points violation in Kansas and Missouri. These can typically be kept off of your driving record if you hire us to negotiate a plea bargain with the court to have your speeding ticket reduced to a non-moving violation, such as “Illegal Parking,” “Defective Equipment,” or another similar charge. If your ticket is reduced to a non-moving violation, the ticket will not be reported to the Department of Revenue, and no points or moving violations will be added to your driving record.

Why to hire a speeding ticket attorney

Speeding tickets and traffic tickets can seriously affect your insurance rates, your employment, and potentially even your privilege to drive.  We recognize that your time is valuable, and do our best to handle your case in a cost effective and expedient manner.

For most speeding tickets, we can represent you without you ever needing to appear in court.   For more serious speeding tickets, such as those involving charges of an excessive speed, careless & imprudent driving, school zones, construction zones, or other aggravating circumstances, you may need to appear in court along with your traffic ticket lawyer.

Contact us. Because every circuit court, district court, and municipal court in the Kansas City utilizes different procedures (including their applicable fines, court costs, as well as their willingness to enter into plea agreements or diversions), we need to obtain additional information about your specific traffic ticket.  You can provide us this ticket information via our Free Estimate Form, via email, or by calling our office at (816) 229-2708.

Discuss your case.  Our speeding ticket and traffic law lawyers will then discuss with you or will contact you back regarding: (1) the amount of our attorney fees; (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 at the bottom of the page) 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).

We Represent You.  My office will then confirm our engagement regarding your case, and will provide you with a receipt for your payment to our office.  We will then work with the Prosecutor, Court, or Clerk to arrange a plea, diversion, reduction in charges, or other agreement so that your charges are amended or reduced to a nonmoving violation (in most cases).  When this process has been completed, we will notify you of your case’s disposition and will include a receipt from the Court.

The majority of prosecutors throughout the Kansas City area are willing to negotiate a plea agreement, diversion agreement, or other type of amendment for many types of speeding tickets and other traffic violations.  This helps you avoid the common issues involved with speeding and traffic tickets, including:

  • Points or Moving Violations
  • Increased Insurance Premiums
  • Job or Employment Implications
  • Driver’s License Suspension or Revocation
  • Possible Jail Time

Missouri.  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.  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.

Most speeding tickets issued by the Missouri State Highway Patrol go through the Fine Collection Center (“FCC”) located Jefferson City, MO.  Some local police and county sheriff’s departments also process their tickets through the FCC.

If you have been issued a Fine Collection Center ticket in Platte County, Jackson County, Clay County, or LaFayette County, please contact our speeding ticket lawyers before the 30 day deadline on your ticket so that we can assist you with amending your speeding or traffic ticket to a no-points nonmoving violation. We offer various flat fee options for all fine collection center tickets.

Attorney Fees at kcticketlaw

Because of the quantity of traffic law violations and speeding tickets that we assist clients with throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area, we are able to offer a $95 flat attorney fee for many types of traffic tickets and speeding tickets.  For many other speeding tickets, our rates are approximately $150-300 depending on the jurisdiction, your charges, and other factors.

Your ticket is eligible for this $95 attorney fee if:

  • Your court date is at least 5 business days away
  • Your speeding ticket is for less than 15 mph over the speed limit, or the ticket is for a stop sign violation, illegal u-turn, signal, lane violation, no insurance, or other similar charge 
  • Your ticket is located is in one of our eligible cities/municipalities
  • You utilize our Estimate Form to contact us and correspond with us solely using email
  • You utilize our online credit card payment system and pay the attorney fee ($95) plus any fines and court costs at the beginning of the case.
Please note that the $95 flat fee is not included for certain cities such as Independence, Leawood, Overland Park, or for most Fine Collection Center tickets (incluing Platte County, Clay County, Jackson County) or many other courts in the area.  Because more time is typically involved in amending tickets that do not meet the above criteria, we typically charge a nominal amount more (typically ranging from a $150-300 attorney fee depending on the circumstances/specific case).

Please note that the amounts above are for our attorney fee only, and that this  does not include the amount of the fine, court cots, or other fees that you will pay to the Court.  We will let you know these other costs prior to our representation and collect them from you up front as well if possible.

Contact us to discuss your specific situation, and we will let you know about our fee, as well as an estimate of the court costs and fines involved.

    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.

    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!

    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

    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.

    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

    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.


    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!
