Motoring Offences

At risk of losing your licence and your livelihood?

Disqualification from driving may have an enormous impact on your everyday life and that of your family and can even cost you your job. For some driving offences, a ban is obligatory but in some cases it is up to the discretion of the court.

Our considerable experience as motoring solicitors in defending drivers charged with road traffic offences, allied to our specialist knowledge, could help you retain that all important driving licence.

As expert motoring solicitors we have prevented disqualification in Brighton Magistrates Court and other courts in Sussex and the South of England on numerous occasions. We have dealt with all types of cases for example causing death by dangerous driving, drink driving, careless driving, failing to stop at a scene of an accident, driving whilst unfit through drugs.

Unfortunately legal aid is rarely granted for motoring offences and therefore we will usually need to be paid privately for representing you on these matters. We can assist with initial consultation through to representation at Court, and we strive to keep our costs at a reasonable level.

Remember that motoring offences can lead to more serious sentences than disqualification. Contact us immediately and we can advise on your position and find the best solution available to you

Legal insurance cover?

The Financial Service Authority has confirmed that policyholders have the right to choose their own solicitor:

The case is that of Eschig v UNIQA Sachversicherung AG (C-199/08, 10 September 2009) in which the ECJ has ruled that a legal expenses insurer cannot insist that its policyholders use its panel solicitors rather than a solicitor of their own choice.

If you are facing prosecution or want some advice don’t hesitate to contact us.
