We Can Fight Your DWI/DUI Or Traffic Violation

Traffic tickets are more than an inconvenience. At worst, traffic offenses can trigger license suspension or jail time and increase your insurance rates. Our DWI and traffic lawyer can help preserve your driving record and driving privileges by contesting a ticket or challenging the basis for a criminal traffic offense.

The law firm of Carter & Putnam, LLC, has literally handled thousands of DUI/DWI cases and traffic violations in Jackson County and surrounding jurisdictions of the Kansas City area. Call 816-246-8881 to find out how we can help.

Minor And Major Traffic Offenses

Attorney Tamara Putnam handles the full range of traffic matters, including:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI/DWI)
  • Driving on a suspended license
  • Speeding tickets and minor traffic infractions
  • Careless driving or reckless driving
  • Leaving the scene of an accident (hit-and-run)
  • Vehicular assault/homicide (causing injury or death)

On more serious charges like DWI (driving while intoxicated), DUI (driving under the influence) and DWS (driving while suspended or revoked), you will want to obtain an experienced criminal defense attorney at the earliest possible time. These charges have serious consequences which can often be avoided or mitigated.

Traffic Violations Have Serious Consequences

Missouri Department of Revenue assesses 2 points for a minor traffic offense. For a more serious traffic offense, Department of Revenue can assess up to 12 points. An accumulation of minor traffic offenses can cost you your driver’s license and increased auto insurance premiums. For serious traffic offenses a driver is subject to high fines and jail time.

You can save yourself a substantial amount of money over the next few years by hiring a criminal defense traffic lawyer to assist you in keeping some or all of the points off your driving record. This stops your insurance company from raising your rates because of the tickets.
