Traffic tickets and moving violations have the power to wreak havoc on your life. Fees quickly mount, and points from tickets can cause your insurance premiums to skyrocket or result in a revoked or suspended license. At The Law Office of Jason Coatney, LLC, I understand what’s at stake when you’ve been cited for a traffic violation. My firm represents clients in the Springfield and throughout Missouri on a range of traffic offenses. I question the actions of law enforcement and doggedly work on your behalf to get the charges you face reduced or dismissed.
Whether you are handed a criminal or civil charge for your alleged offense, you may face significant penalties if you plead guilty. Simply paying a fine rather than contesting the charge in court could come back to haunt you when your insurance bill arrives or when you get another ticket. A lawyer from The Law Office of Jason Coatney, LLC can go to court and work to have your charges dropped or reduced to result in less harsh consequences.

I possess the knowledge needed to assert your rights and protect your best interests in traffic court. I handle moving and nonmoving violations of all kinds.
I take a meticulous approach to traffic violation defense, examining every aspect of your case, including the police report, to see if the law enforcement officer violated your rights or failed to perform their duties as required. In addition, I will interview you to obtain as much information as possible regarding the circumstances surrounding your violation. In some cases, the wrong driver may be cited for a violation caused by another motorist. At The Law Office of Jason Coatney, LLC, I explore every scenario before determining the best course of action, and during trial I can aggressively question those who testify against you.
