We understand entirely the often devastating effects of a disqualification upon an individual and how it can impact upon the whole family.
If it is legally possible to avoid a driving disqualification we will do our utmost to keep you driving!
Whether it be a complete defence to the allegation or strong mitigation we will discuss the situation with you in detail and explore all available options.
In certain situations we can avoid you having to attend court in person and can appear on your behalf. We will present your case to the court in the most effective way and promptly report back to you.
Motoring law is a highly specialised area and our years of experience in dealing with all types of motoring offences has given us the expertise that is required to best present your case.
Legal Aid may be available to you and we will advise you upon this. Most motoring allegations are “summary only” which are considered only in the Magistrates’ Court. Legal Aid is often not available; in those circumstances our Partners, David and Nicola, charge an hourly rate of £150.00 plus VAT totalling £180.00 for all of their time expended on your case. If your case is likely to be dealt with at a single hearing at a Magistrates’ Court within 45 minutes of our office the cost is likely to be in the region of £450.00 plus VAT totalling £540.00 – £750.00 plus VAT totalling £900.00 (based on 3-5 hours work). In those circumstances an alternative of a fixed fee of £500.00 plus VAT totalling £600.00 may be offered to you which would include taking your instructions, seeking to obtain details of the evidence from the prosecution, advising you and representing you at court and all preparation and travelling involved
If you are suspected of having committed a motoring offence, or believe you may have been caught by a camera, please do not hesitate to contact either Nicola or David who will be pleased to advise you.
