Lawyer For Stop Light Ticket Defense

Police take intersection stop signs and traffic lights seriously. It comes from being the first responders at serious T-bone, head-on and rear-ends intersection collisions and seeing the serious injuries.

I am attorney Christopher T. Patterson and I have been in practice since 1980. If you have been charged with a traffic violation, I may be able to help keep your driving record clean. For decades, I have dedicated my career to helping the citizens in the Northland communities and in the Kansas City, Missouri, metropolitan area with their legal needs. 

Car Insurance Companies Make Drivers Pay Higher Premiums

While many drivers think they can get away with running through an intersection, this is still one of the most common reasons for traffic citations in the country. Car insurance companies often use the single ticket on a driver’s record to increase premiums, even when no other drivers were in danger at the intersection. 

Stop Sign Violations And Stop Light Violations Not Always Easy To Handle

The police have cameras at many intersections and on their dashboards, making challenging these types of violations difficult. Depending on your circumstances, I may be able to go before the traffic judge and request that the ticket be waived or the fine reduced. In fact, often I can resolve your case with a plea bargain that will be cost-effective to you. You need to move on with your life with as little financial damage as possible, while at the same time protecting your driving privileges.
