At Troppito Miller Griffin, LLC, Our Goal is to Keep You Driving in the Kansas City Area
Our law firm’s co-founder, Tony Miller, was a traffic court prosecutor in Kansas City and Jackson County before he joined Troppito Miller Griffin, LLC. He knows what prosecutors will use against you and what they will do in court because he has been on the other side. Now, Mr. Miller only helps people like you who have been charged with a Missouri traffic violation. He understands how difficult it is to lose your driver’s license and to hold down a job, get your kids to school and get to the grocery store. We are a mobile society, and if you can’t drive, you basically can’t live.
There are three ways to lose your driving privileges in Missouri (in addition to refusing to submit to a chemical test (“breathalyzer”) after a DWI stop):
If you have too many points on your driving record – you will lose your Missouri license: In order for us to help you continue driving in Missouri, we have to keep points off your driving record. You can check how many points are on your driving record by getting information from the Missouri Department of Revenues’ website.
- For every moving violation you have, you get points on your Missouri driver’s license. In Missouri, if you accumulate a total of 8 or more points in 18 months, the Department of Revenue will suspend (meaning you can’t drive) your driving privilege. How long your driving privilege suspension lasts depends on how many suspensions you have had in the past. The Missouri Department of Revenue will revoke (meaning you can’t legally drive) your driving privilege for one year if you accumulate: 12 or more points in 12 months, 18 or more points in 24 months or 24 or more points in 36 months
- If you get too many points on your driver’s license, it will make it harder for us to help you next time. So even if your license is not suspended or revoked, too many points can have damaging results.
If you don’t show up in court – you may lose your Missouri license: If you miss a court date, the court may suspend your driving privileges. This means you can’t legally drive. To drive again, you have to get your driving privileges reinstated.
If you don’t pay a court fine – you will lose your Missouri license: If you had a traffic ticket, and you didn’t pay the fine on time, your driving privileges will be suspended. This means you can’t legally drive. To be able to drive again, your license has to be reinstated.
At Troppito Miller Griffin, LLC, Here’s How We Keep You Driving
We strive to keep points off your license in Missouri: Many times, we can often amend traffic tickets to a negotiated plea. Each Kansas City prosecutor has his or her own procedures and practices for negotiating traffic tickets. Sometimes, a moving violation charge in Kansas City (such as speeding, careless and imprudent driving, failure to signal, improper signal, following to close, etc.) can be plead (negotiated) to a non-moving violation like a parking ticket.
Non-moving violations do not put points on your license. So, if you don’t have points on your license, you can keep driving. If you hire Mr. Miller, he will work with the local prosecutor to strive for the best deal possible under the unique facts of your case.
We show up for you in a Kansas City area traffic court, so you don’t have to: If you hire us, we will always show up for you in a Kansas City area court to fight your traffic ticket. This means you don’t have to miss time from work, and you don’t have to worry about losing your driver’s license for failing to show up in court.
We inform you about your deadline for paying traffic ticket fines in the greater Kansas City area: When you pay your traffic ticket fines on time, you keep your driver’s license. When you hire us, you will know exactly when your fine is due and how to pay it.
