motoring offences

If your driving licence is at risk we can help save it.

We have a reputation for successfully representing and defending people’s driving licences in courts and police stations across the country. We are proud to say that we receive a large number of referrals and previous clients repeatedly recommend us to their friends, family and work colleagues. We also frequently receive referrals from other lawyers.

Our specialist team help clients across the country, defending and mitigating to achieve the best results in the circumstances of the case, from the more basic, but where the driver’s licence is at risk; to the more complex serious offences where a person’s liberty can be at stake. We provide clients with practical and realistic advice.

Some may appear complex at first glance but are more simple than they appear.

Up to half a day representation at a Magistrates Court
