Have you been cited for a traffic violation?
It’s easy to forget that driving is a privilege, and one that should not be taken lightly or for granted. But it happens to everyone from time to time–speeding, parking in a no parking zone, failing to fully stop at a red light or stop sign–and more often than not the driver is caught. Others get their license suspended for a time, but in order to get to work, take the kids to school and participate in social events, they drive and get caught. Still others don’t know that their license was suspended for a reasons such as failing to carry adequate or proper auto insurance or owing back child support.
When you find yourself in a traffic law violation it’s essential to work with an experienced attorney who will help you through the legal process so you can make things right and get back to driving legally. Attorney Stacey Meinen is that attorney. She has years of experience helping St. Louis residents with their traffic law cases and aims to get violations cleared in cases where her client didn’t commit them and reduce sentences for those who were in error.
