$99 Attorney Fee
Traffic Ticket amendments in this court may qualify for the $99 attorney fee when processed online.
** Be sure to check requirements as listed below.
We know this court "inside-out" and can economically assist you in having these moving violations amended to zero-point, non-moving infractions that will not be recorded on your record.
**Note that the attorney fee facilitates the amendment process. You will also owe amendment fees and court costs to the court as well.
For straight-forward, uncomplicated traffic citations, we are pleased to offer a Special $99 Attorney Fee. This is a great value that keeps a moving violation off your driving record at the best possible price.
However, please MAKE SURE your ticket meets all the qualifications for this $99 special as listed below.
If it does not meet the qualifications for the $99 special, we can still handle your ticket but the attorney fee will be more because it is more complex.
How much more? The attorney fee may be higher based on the complexity of your particular case. We can promptly quote you an attorney fee after researching the circumstances of the particular ticket in question and your driving record history.
If you have a suspended license or DWI it is an entirely different situation. Call us with your case specifics and we can quote you a price to minimize the damages against you and your driving record.
KC Traffic Law Central can assist you with any charges you may have against you in the Kansas City, Missouri Municipal Court.

KCMO Court Amendment Fees and Court Costs:
**Important Note: Amendment fees are never the same as the fine on your ticket or pay slip. Those amounts are "plead guilty" amounts. That is the amount the court will charge you to plead guilty to the citation as a moving violation.
We are not pleading you guilty. We are having your ticket amended and therefore, court amendment fees replace the fines on your ticket or pay slip. For more information, read ticket costs - amendment vs guilty plea.
