Do I Have To Have A Lawyer To Get My Ticket Amended?

Do I have to have a lawyer to get my ticket amended or can I do it myself?

In most courts: Yes, you do need a lawyer to get your ticket amended.

A few states will allow you to request your own amendment or diversion, however, Missouri is not one of those states. An amendment or diversion is generally a negotiation between an attorney and a prosecutor and/or judge.

Courts have found that when clients “represent themselves”, it is often very time consuming and labor-intensive for an “already over-burdened court”.

The average person has many questions as to the amendment process, the whys and wherefores that have to be explained over and over and over. The person then generally wants to dispute the validity of the ticket as well.

So, to simplify the process and make it manageable for the court, most courts advise clients that if they want to do anything other than plead guilty or no contest (same thing), they need to have a lawyer explain the options to them and represent them in court.

If a lawyer represents you on a traffic charge, you do not generally have to appear in court. If you have a more serious or complicated offense (such as a no insurance citation, driving while suspended or revoked, or exceptionally high speed as examples), you may be required to accompany the attorney in court.
