Traffic Tickets: We can
handle all traffic citations and help you in several ways. There may be
fines and court costs associated
with your violation(s) that add up into the hundreds of dollars.
Additionally, auto insurance rates may
increase and, in some circumstances, the violation could result in
your driver’s license or worse. Hiring
an attorney to assist you with traffic tickets will save you not only money but
time waiting in municipal court through a number of available legal remedies --
amendments and diversion.
D.U.I. Charge: If you are arrested for Driving Under
the Influence, there are two separate matters to consider.
The first matter is that charges potentially
result in substantial fines, jail times and suspension or revocation of
driver's license. Moreover, there are
several factors to consider in determining the impact of the D.U.I.
you, including mandatory jail time, substantial court fines exceeding
suspended or revoked driver license for a substantial period of time,
required courses to attend for first time offender.
There are different consequences and remedies
that come along with a D.U.I. arrest.
These consequences and remedies most commonly turn on circumstances
surrounding the arrest as well as whether there are prior D.U.I.
convictions. There is the possibility of
being placed in a diversion program, which still includes the high court
and fees, a requirement to complete an alcohol treatment program, a
alcohol and drug abstinence period, and other matters to follow. It is
important to know that KSA 8-1567 counts a diversion for a D.U.I. as a
conviction if the person is ever charged with D.U.I. and the proposed
license suspension as set out in DC-27 may still remain in effect.
The second important matter deals with what is
commonly known as a “DC-27 Hearing.” “DC-27” refers to a pink sheet
commonly given by police officers to the person they are arresting at
of the stop. This pink sheet entitles
you, the arrestee, to request an administrative hearing with the Kansas
of Revenue within 10 days of when you received the DC-27. If you
fail to request the administrative hearing, you will be barred from
the suspension of your driving privileges. There are a number of issues
and matters to consider in this administrative hearing that we can
assist you with.
Criminal Law: We can handle your misdemeanor charges
filed in Municipal Court or Johnson County District Court. Depending
on the charge(s) and circumstances, a plea bargain or an agreement can
reached with the prosecutor to resolve the criminal matter when
potential outcomes include a reduction or amendment in the charge, one
of the multiple charges being dismissed, pleading guilty to a lesser
or securing a more lenient sentence. Be aware that any criminal
conviction may result in incarceration and high court fines/restitution,
can impact the individual being charged with a crime, including the
charge being placed on the individual record that may impact his
