Criminal Defense & Traffic Violations

Protecting Your Rights Through a Criminal Charge

Kansas City Criminal Defense

Most people rarely think about criminal courts or a criminal defense attorney, until they need one. Whether you got caught up in a bad situation, got caught with drugs, were falsely accused of a crime, or anything else, you never want to step foot in a criminal courtroom without a good attorney present.

If you have been arrested, or even if you are just being investigated for a crime, you need to contact a criminal defense attorney right away. The sooner you reach out to us, the sooner we can start gathering evidence, choosing witnesses, and creating an effective defense for your case. No matter how bad the police or prosecutors try to make it look, we are here to help.

Use Your Right to Remain Silent

No matter how big or small you think your case may be, you never want to give the police or prosecuting attorneys any information that they don’t already have, because they will find a way to use it against you. As soon as you are able, contact The Starosta Law Firm to have an attorney there to represent you. We’ll review your case, go over your options, and offer you the best possible defense for your situation. We also offer discounts to UAW members, so don’t hesitate to call no matter the situation you are in.

Effective Representation of Traffic Violations

Traffic tickets and other traffic-related violations are among the most common legal issues that people face today. While most people just go down to the police department and pay their fines, that is not always the best course of action. With a good attorney, you can often fight almost any type of ticket or other issue and have it reduced or even removed from your record. This can not only save you money on the ticket, but can also help keep your insurance costs lower, and ensure your license is not revoked.

Dealing with Serious Driving-Related Issues

Of course, there are also traffic issues that are much more serious than a simple speeding ticket. If you’re found to be at fault for an accident, you’re accused of a DUI, or there is some type of violence involved, the consequences can be devastating. In these situations, it is essential to have an attorney who will fight aggressively on your behalf. Don’t put your driver’s license, or your future, in jeopardy. Let Attorney Timothy Starosta help you today.

Alive at 25

One great option that many people have available to them after they’ve gotten a ticket or other traffic violation is the “Alive at 25” program. This program is designed for younger drivers (though others can benefit from it too), and teaches people defensive driving techniques that can help to improve awareness on the road, and avoid dangerous situations.

In addition to helping you become a better driver, once you go through this program, you can typically get a traffic violation removed from your record. Sometimes this class is mandatory after getting a ticket, and other times you can petition the court to let you attend instead of having the ticket on your record. In either case, this is a great option to be aware of, and one that we can help you qualify for.
