Road traffic law is extremely complicated making it essential that you seek the advice of a specialist. Sometimes a motoring offence may be minor; other times it could be far more serious with potentially devastating consequences. If you have received a notice of intended prosecution, received a court citation or have been contacted by the police, we can advise you on the best course of action to take.

If you have been summoned to court our solicitors can provide you with information on the likely outcome of your case and, if necessary, defend you in court, especially if you face a driving ban / disqualification.

Our road traffic solicitors will do everything we can for you, within the bounds of road traffic law, to protect your driving licence and prevent you from going to prison.

Motoring offences – areas of specialism:

  • Drink Driving / Over prescribed limit

  • Death by dangerous driving

  • Dangerous Driving
