Call us for help if you’ve received a traffic or speeding ticket in Missouri. We have extensive experience in helping clients deal with tickets in all regions of Missouri, including these areas:
To get started, fill out the form on our site, or call us! Typically cases can be taken care of within 45 days.
First, you’ll need to fill out the form on our site so we can provide you with a quote. We will need your contact information, your ticket number, the violation, and the city or county where you were ticketed.
Once we know more about your specific situation, we’ll be able to tell you more about your options.
When you give your consent to proceed, we get to work and enter a “Not Guilty” plea on your behalf.
Next, we negotiate with the Prosecution to see if they will amend the charge. The goal is to avoid points on your license so you can avoid increased insurance rates!
Once we have an amended charge, we will call and discuss this with you. Payments of fines can be done via check or credit card. When we receive your payment, we can then pay your fine and file your guilty plea to the amended charge.
You will almost never have to leave your house to keep points off of your license!
Attorney Andrew Popplewell focuses his practice on DWI defense, alcohol and drug offenses, traffic violations and general criminal defense. Andrew grew up and worked on a fifth-generation family farm where he learned, early on, the importance of personal responsibility and work ethic. In 2001, Andrew graduated from the University of Missouri with a B.S. in Agriculture Economics. He began working for Eng & Woods Attorneys at Law in 2002 while still in law school and joined the firm as an associate in May 2005. Andrew became a partner with Eng & Woods in January 2010 and is an active member of the Missouri Bar (MOBAR), the Boone County Bar Association (BCBA) and both the Missouri and National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (MACDL and NACDL).
Andrew Popplewell successfully handles more than 100 DWI cases yearly, giving each client the attention they deserve. He has successfully tried multiple cases to both judge and jury resulting in not-guilty verdicts for his clients throughout the state of Missouri. Furthermore, he fights for all of his clients accused of crimes, contesting multiple cases each month. Andrew obtained certification from the Department of Transportation to administer Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, a necessity for cross-examining arresting officers, and he is one of only two attorneys in Columbia to attain membership in the prestigious National College for DUI Defense (NCDD).
Andrew received his AV rating from Martindale Hubbell in June, 2013, becoming Columbia’s youngest AV-rated attorney. Martindale-Hubbell has rated attorneys based on anonymous peer and judiciary ratings of attorneys’ legal ability and ethical standards. According to Martindale-Hubbell, the AV rating represents the “highest possible peer review rating in legal ability & ethical standards.” Less than 5% of all attorneys achieve an “AV® Preeminent™ Attorneys” rating.
Attorneys from outside of Columbia and even attorneys who do not only practice criminal law refer Andrew Popplewell cases on a continual basis — as do former clients. They all know that he is an aggressive lawyer who will give you an honest assessment of your case, and through a combination of knowledge and hard work, he will fight to get you the best result possible.
