    Speeding ticket

    Can someone give me the name of a few attorneys in Decatur county or maybe Des Moines who can help me not put points against my driving history? This stupid cop nailed me for 10 miles over on Friday, imagine that. What a tool. Any help is appreciated.

    Also, I live in St Louis area, I was only travelling up for the game :(

    You're going to hire an attorney for a speeding ticket?

    Here's a thought, pay your fine and don't ***** about it. You were speeding, you got caught.

    Your mad about getting caught? you broke the law, pay up. Next time only go 7 over- it decreases the chance of getting pulled over

    I knew where this thread was going before I opened it. Look out for people on their high horse.

    To the OP, I'm in a breakfast club and play basketball with a lawyer in Des Moines who is a pretty good guy

    His name is Brad Schroeder. He will probably tell you whether or not it is worth to fight it or leave it.

    Here is their website
    Hartung & Schroeder - Attorneys JD*Hartung and Brad Schroeder

    Re: Speeding ticket

    I got a ticket for going 10 over back in 2005 and my insurance went up like $20/year, and I was told most of that was because I moved zip codes. I wouldn't worry much about it, and I most defiently think its not worth fighting.

    Re: Speeding ticket

    Here's the website of an attorney who doesn't mind pursuing meritless cases of behalf of victims, like yourself.

    Gloria Allred | Discrimination Attorney | Feminist Lawyer

    Hope it helps.


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.
