Notable cases our Driving Offence Solicitors have been involved in:

R v C

We persuaded the Magistrates not to disqualify our client by successfully arguing that our client was only driving over the limit in response to a genuine emergency.

R v J

We persuaded the Magistrates that the relevant documentation was not received by our client and that our client should be acquitted at trial of failing to provide driver details.

R v S

Although our client was guilty of causing a road traffic accident whilst driving under the influence of a cocktail of prohibited drugs, we submitted personal mitigation arguments as a result of which our client only received a community order.

R v G

We argued special reasons on the basis that our client was misled into believing she was entitled to drive, which resulted in our client not receiving a penalty points endorsement for an offence of no insurance.

We provide advice and assistance to those who are eligible for legal aid funding as well as on a private fee basis.
