Benefits of Using Us

You will benefit from our experience and advice on strategy and procedure, as well as our legal knowledge.


We Do The Checks

Have the police made an error? We check to see if your Notice of Intended Prosecution, Single Justice Procedure Notice, Charge and other paperwork is defective and could provide you with a defence.

If You Have A Defence, We'll Find It

Want to fight your case? We tell you if there is not enough evidence to convict you. It may be that the police cannot prove the offence or cannot prove that you were driving. If you have a defence to a driving offence, we will find it.

We Provide Mitigation

If you do not have a defence, we will prepare mitigation to reduce your sentence and boost your chances of a successful outcome. Some driving offences can result in either disqualification or points. If you would prefer one over the other, we will do our best to encourage the court to impose that sentence.


Court Representation

We will represent you at court and put forward a persuasive argument on your behalf. We maximise the chance of a successful outcome if you choose to represent yourself.

With You Throughout

At all times we will be approachable and do our best to put you at ease and prepare you for the outcome, whatever it may be. You’ll get a personal service and find us easy to get hold of when you need us.


Specialist Experience

Our team has successfully defended some of the most serious road traffic offences in the Crown Courts, such as causing death by dangerous driving or causing serious injury by dangerous driving. We can help with all motoring offences such as driving without insurance, drug driving, failing to provide a specimen, mobile phone offences and many more.

There are few, if any, driving offences our solicitors have not dealt with.
