DUI Defense



These cases are actually one in the same.  Driving under the influence (DUI) and driving while intoxicated (DWI) are two shorthand names for the exact same charges.


Your police stop really starts with what is called a probable cause ticket.  Why did you get pulled over in the first place?  Speeding, lane weaving, driving with no headlights on are just some of the reasons a cop pulls you over.


Lee’s Summit Traffic Tickets will obtain your police reports and generally a DVD 0f your arrest and booking procedures. These reports and videos will be closely examined to aid in your defense.


I have been in practice for 35 years and formerly served as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney in the Kansas City Municipal Court.


FIRST:    I have been to all local courts.


SECOND:  I know the Prosecutors and how to negotiate a plea bargain or try your case.


THIRD:   I also work with you in the Administrative Hearing Process with the Department of Revenue. This process is technical and follows strict time rules.  You must not delay in seeking legal help if the police take your license.


Give Howard Hoyt a call or drop him a text or email. He actually returns his calls as soon as he can. You will also speak with him directly, and not get lost in voicemail or shipped off to a secretary.
