City of Ladue Traffic Ticket Lawyer | Douglas Richards |


City of Ladue Traffic Ticket Lawyer. You or a family member have been pulled over in the City of Ladue by the police and have been given one or several traffic tickets. Whether the traffic tickets are for,  including but not limited to:

  • All Speeding Tickets
  • Speeding in a Construction Zone
  • Speeding in a Accident Reduction Zone
  • Speeding in a School Zone
  • Excessive Acceleration
  • Drag Racing
  • Failure to Signal
  • Failure to Drive in a Single Lane

  • Driving Without Insurance – No Proof of Insurance
  • Careless, Reckless or Imprudent Driving – C & I

The consequences of just going to court without consulting with a Ladue Traffic Ticket Lawyer and pleading guilty can be serious. They may include a criminal conviction or traffic conviction on your record, fines, loss of your driver’s license, or even jail time.

Pleading guilty to a DWI/DUI, or some other moving traffic offense, even to a speeding ticket, will not only mean a fine but application of the Missouri Department of Revenue points system, which could lead to eventual suspension of your license and extremely high insurance rates for several years.

Before pleading guilty to a DWI/DUI, or any kind of criminal charge, or any kind of speeding or other kind of traffic ticket, it is often worthwhile to discuss the situation with a experienced Ladue Traffic Ticket Lawyer.

Call me, Douglas Richards, an experienced Ladue Traffic Ticket Lawyer, for a Free Consultation. You may permanently damage your case by talking with police and prosecutors before talking with a Ladue Traffic Ticket Lawyer.

I have represented clients facing municipal court charges for over 29 years.  The Prosecuting Attorney must prove municipal court cases, like all other criminal cases, beyond a reasonable doubt. By demonstrating even before trial that the Prosecuting Attorney has no case,  or a very weak case, can serve as the basis to arrange for a plea bargain, a reduced charge, or even complete dismissal of the charges.

Make sure your rights and privileges are protected to the greatest extent possible. An arrest can be a devastating experience, and the consequences can follow you for the rest of your life. Because the criminal court system is complex, you benefit from the counsel of a skilled and knowledgeable Ladue Traffic Ticket Lawyer even in the municipal court.  You need someone on your side who understands the law and how the municipal courts work.

I never charge a fee for an initial consultation because I understand that it is an important step in the process of finding the right Ladue Traffic Ticket Lawyer for you. Call today to contact my office so we can set up a time to meet face to face with you so I can answer all of your Ladue Traffic Ticket Defense questions.

Call today to discuss the details and to set up a free case evaluation of the facts of your case at:



9666 Olive Blvd, Ste. 365

St. Louis, MO 63132




I look forward to sitting down and talking to you face to face, so you can teach me the facts of your case and I can teach you what the law is and what legal defenses and legal tactics that are available to you, so that together, we can achieve the Best Result for you!

I am a Ladue Traffic Ticket Lawyer – with over 29 years of experience in handling cases in the City of Ladue and in the other Courts in the area of St. Louis County, (West County, South County, North County), St. Louis City, St. Charles County, Jefferson County and Franklin County.

How does Missouri’s point system work?

If you accumulate a total of 4 points in 12 months, the Department of Revenue will send you a point accumulation advisory letter.

If you accumulate a total of 8 or more points in 18 months, the Department of Revenue will suspend your driving privilege.

  • 1st suspension – 30 days
  • 2nd suspension – 60 days
  • 3rd or more suspensions – 90 days

The Department of Revenue will revoke your driving privilege for one year if you accumulate:

  • 12 or more points in 12 months
  • 18 or more points in 24 months
  • 24 or more points in 36 months

When your driving privilege is reinstated following a Point Suspension or Revocation, the Department of Revenue reduces your total points to 4.

Every year you drive without getting new points on your record, the points will be reduced.

  • 1 year — total remaining points reduced by one-third
  • 2 years — remaining points reduced by one-half
  • 3 years — points reduced to zero

Although your points may be reduced to zero, certain types of convictions must remain listed permanently on your Missouri driver record.

How do I find out how many points would go on my record if I do not hire a lawyer to help me?

How to pay your reinstatement fee to the DOR

How many points do I have on my record?

Please call (573) 526-2407 to find out how many points you have on your record or send an e-mail to .

When can tickets be removed from my record?

Traffic Tickets cannot be removed from your Missouri driver record until the conviction is at least three years old, but other conditions may apply.

If the traffic ticket(s) led to the suspension or revocation of your Missouri driving privilege, then five years must pass from the suspension or revocation reinstatement date before the traffic ticket(s) may be purged.

Traffic Tickets for Failure to Maintain Insurance cannot be removed from your Missouri driver record.

How can I request an old ticket be removed from my record?

You may submit a request (including your full name and Missouri driver license number or social security number) to have old tickets purged from your record using one of the following methods:

  • Send an e-mail request to .
  • Call (573) 526-2407 during normal business hours to request the purge.

  • Missouri Department of Revenue
    301 West High Street – Room 470
    PO Box 200
    Jefferson City, MO, 65105-0200

NOTE: A ticket is not eligible to be removed if it “supports” an existing administrative suspension/revocation/denial action against the driver, or if it otherwise must remain on the record in accordance with state law.
