The municipal court legal system is confusing and intimidating to most people. Often, those who are facing municipal violations are uncertain of their rights and may be ignorant of the ramifications of just pleading guilty and paying a fine.
At the Erker Law Firm, we are lawyers who are experienced in representing clients’ rights and interests before municipal law courts throughout the Kansas City metro area. We also regularly represent tourists and others from out of state who received a municipal violation while in Kansas. Our office is based in Olathe, Kansas, and we have helped a significant number of people over the course of nearly 30 years of practice in this particular area of law.
In many cases, we are able to represent our clients without them ever having to appear in municipal court.
