As a traffic law lawyer licensed in both Kansas and Missouri courts, I understand how courts differ greatly in their policies, procedures, and fees. Because of those differences, one of the first pieces of information we need to gather from our clients is which Kansas Court jurisdiction their ticket is in.
You can always find this information on the top section of your ticket. You can also check the court address with the information provided below. If you need help, please don't hesitate to give us a call.
The following links will provide additional information for you regarding:

If we do not offer the $99 attorney fee for your court, contact us for a competitive price to handle your ticket amendment.
