For nearly two decades, The Traffic Lawyers of Kopecky Law, P.A. have represented thousands of clients in various traffic matters ranging from speeding tickets to complicated DUI/DWI cases. Traffic law is our life and we spend most of our day in courts all across Missouri, Kansas, and Iowa. We have several offices in the Kansas City Metro Area and one in St. Louis where we meet clients. However, we do a significant amount of work with clients completely over the internet or over the phone. Our goal is to make it as easy on you as possible. We know our clients are very busy people and often don't want to waste time coming to our physical offices if they don’t have to. We try to work it so you either won't have to go to court at all or typically just once for the more complicated and serious cases. Because we do such a huge volume of cases, we can do your case cheaper than most of our competitors and offer very reasonable prices.

The Traffic Lawyers of Kopecky Law, P.A. holds the highest rating (A-V) a law firm can hold for competency and integrity (Martindale Hubbell). It's founder and lead counsel, Christopher E. Kopecky, is a teaching lawyer. He is a professor of law at several colleges, including Avila University and Rockhurst University, where he is has been teaching litigation for the last seven years. He also regularly teaches lawyers at continuing legal education seminars for the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association. He is a Judge Pro Tem for Olathe Municipal Court and is past chair of the Municipal Courts Committee of Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association. Mr. Kopecky was recognized as "Best of the Bar" by the Kansas City Business Journal for the last five years, and was also in the first graduating class of the Greater Kansas City Bar Leadership Academy. He has been interviewed and quoted by NBC Action News, the Kansas City Star, The Kansas City Business Journal, The Kansas City Small Business Monthly, and Missouri Lawyer's Weekly. He was also featured on a radio show called “The Entrepreneurial Moment” wherein he gave advise to other entrepreneurs about how to achieve the American Dream by focusing on customer service. He received his bachelor's degree from Rockhurst University in 1988 with a triple major in Psychology, Philosophy, and Economics; and his law degree from Saint Louis University School of Law in 1991 where he was a staff editor of the St. Louis University Law Journal (Law Review) and received an Academic Award for having the highest grade.

All of our attorneys and paralegals are top notch and have been carefully screened to have exceptional “bedside manner”. We know that communication is very important as well as privacy. Many of our clients are very particular that their spouse or parents (or kids) don’t find out about their “embarrassing situation” and we go out of our way to respect that, while on the same note, make a point to stay in touch with our clients and let them know what is going on, every step of the way.

Our pledge to you is that we will handle your case promptly, ethically, and with your best interest at heart. We work in a team environment and try to leverage the knowledge of all our attorneys to get the best possible result for you. We will keep you informed, explain to you your options, and let you make the decision that is best for you. It is our sincere belief that when someone refers to us a friend or family member they are paying us an extreme compliment by trusting us to do a good job. This is a committment we take very seriously. We are also honored to say that we have been hired to represent many lawyers in their own cases as well as being entrusted to represent their family members and clients. In fact, lawyers from most of the big law firms in the metro send us their clients as they know that not only are we in front of the judges and prosecutors every day, know the law readily, but we can usually do a traffic case more economically and efficiently than they can. Why not hire a “big firm” lawyer at a “small firm” price?

Speeding ticket reduced to non-moving violation
Requested help in getting a speeding ticket reduced to a non-moving violation at 10:41AM. Ticket resolved at 1:46PM the same day. Did it all using their website and email. Fast and easy could not have ask for better service or result.

Well recommended
After contacting the firm, Chris got back to me promptly and immediately set me at ease. Services were affordable, and even with a pandemic complicating things he stayed on top of everything and managed to get my ticket dismissed. Highly recommended!

Mr. Kopecky did a great job on my case. First, he did a great job preparing me for what would happen, when it would happen and how. I knew what his game plan was and what I had to do (which wasn't very much). The day of my case in court, he went through the plan again and expected questions from the Judge (he was 100% on this which I was really happy about). My case went exactly as he'd outlined. Mr. Kopecky is my go-to attorney.

The Kopecky Law Firm is top notch!
The staff at Kopecky Law is friendly and knowledgeable. They are always professional and helpful. The legal advise given to me was fantastic. They helped me feel at ease and guided me through every step of the process. I highly recommend them to anyone!

Will never go anywhere else!
I am a very busy working mom and did not want to hassle with taking time out of my day to deal with a grumpy court staff. I wasn't even sure what to do when I got my ticket or my options. The Kopecky staff were so helpful and sincere. They walked me through every step and I didn't even have to set foot in a court room. The cost was much cheaper than I thought and now I don't have to worry about my insurance skyrocketing.

Worst Lawyer Ever
The phone number is linked to a VM Box that no one will ever answer, they changed my ticket to a Non Driving Violation but never paid my ticket after six months nothing!!! No I am outside MO and stuck with paying them the full price their fee + ticket cost and they never paid the state of MO. I will be pursuing legal options.
