With experience as a former Jackson County, Missouri, criminal prosecutor, Troy is able to anticipate where your DUI case is headed and can help you make the right choices for you and your family. He understands the harsh consequences you face and will fight hard to help you avoid penalties such as:
Jail time: Going to jail is disruptive to your job, family and life in general. Troy fights tirelessly to help you avoid the lengthy jail time that is a possibility in DUI cases.
Fines: Fines for DUI can range from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars, depending on the severity of the offense and your history.
Felon status: Repeat DUI offenses may be charged as felonies. If convicted, you will be labeled a felon for the rest of your life.
License suspension: As an administrative penalty, your license may be suspended following a DUI arrest unless you appeal the suspension to the Missouri Department of Revenue. Repeat offenders face longer suspensions with every subsequent DUI.
Points on your driver’s license: Even a first-time DUI offense can put points on your license. Repeat offenders receive an escalating number of points with every offense.
Increasing insurance rates: Apart from criminal or administrative penalties, your insurance carrier may increase your rates to an unmanageable level.
When discussing these consequences or other DUI topics, Troy wants you to feel confident in your choice of representation, maintain a sense of control over your defense, and get the quality service you deserve.
