The Pragma Law Driving Offence Team

Lucy Whitaker

Lucy Whitaker


I’m Lucy, a specialist driving offence solicitor based in Nottingham.  My team and I really know our stuff when it comes to motoring offences. After speaking with us, you’ll be confident you’re in experienced hands. You can learn about the other team members below.

Since 2008, I have worked exclusively as a driving offence lawyer. I now work only for private defendants, but in the past have also prosecuted cases in the criminal courts. I believe that having experience in both prosecuting and defending has made me a better solicitor and advocate and I will use my knowledge to your advantage.

Why don’t you give us a no-obligation call and judge for yourself?

Specialist Solicitors

We do what we’re best at.

Free Initial Advice

No obligation, no hard sell

Staged Fixed Fees

Competitive, transparent pricing

Flexible Appointments

Even evenings and weekends

Whether you are facing a minor offence such as speeding or using a mobile while driving, a more serious charge like drink driving or dangerous driving or perverting the course of justice, I can represent you. If you want to defend your case, I will help you fight. If you don’t have a defence, I’ll aim to reduce your sentence.

Highly Experienced

My professional team and I have many years’ experience giving legal advice on traffic offences and representing drivers in court.


I deal only with motoring offences and road transport matters. My aim is to deal with all my cases personally, from start to finish.

If for any reason I am not available, you will be advised or represented by a specialist motoring offence solicitor or barrister whom I trust. I will supervise your case throughout.


You’ll find me friendly and approachable at all times. I’ll put your mind at ease and guarantee to make your situation less stressful. At the same time, you’ll be confident that you are in safe hands.


My advice will be clear and explained in a way that you can understand. I will not confuse you with legal terminology.

In the courtroom, I’ll fight your case and put forward clear, persuasive arguments.


I am confident I can get you the best outcome, but will not make false promises.

Here's what some of our clients say

I just wanted to thank you personally and say how delighted I was with the service I received from Lucy. Considering the situation and how worrying it was for me, I can sincerely say I felt an enormous pressure lifted from me as a result of the way Lucy handled my case. Of course the legal representation I received was second to none and I felt complete faith in my representation from Lucy at the court where the outcome was very very positive. Lucy was exceptional and professional in the service she provided and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is looking for excellent representation.
John Catalano


Lucy Whitaker did an excellent job in supporting me through my speeding offence and achieved the best possible outcome. Would definitely recommend.
Es Ode


Exceptional advice, support and service during a recent motoring offence. Without such pertinent and significant advice this matter may not have been as positive as it turned out.
Giles Civil


I was facing the possibility of a driving ban and with the help, support and advice of Pragma Law, we secured a positively favourable ruling regardless of the previous unfavourable outcome from the lower court. I was offered a personalised help and support (which helped to put me at ease during the whole process). Thanks for the good work-Lucy/Pragma Law.


I was unfortunate enough to need a lawyer recently and chose lucy at pragma law. She was very professional in dealing with this and I would recommend them to anyone with motoring law issues.
Craig Holland


I recently had Lucy Whitaker represent me in court for a driving matter. The outcome was very satisfactory albeit irrelevant to this review. Lucy was excellent inside and out of court. Very informative and hugely supportive as I was very nervous. Her professional approach and knowledge is second to none. An absolute pleasure to deal with. I am extremely grateful and therefore have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone should they require similar support. Thank You Lucy and all at Pragma Law
Craig Donnelly


I cannot speak highly enough of Lucy’s work. The diligence and attention to detail she brought to our situation resulted in an otherwise hopeless situation being completely resolved. She made no false promises and was scrupulous in keeping us informed and ensuring we fully understood all options.
Eryl Ward


Lucy is absolutely brilliant, very professional. I will be recommending her to anyone needing this type of legal advice, Lucy helped me when no one else could and I’m overly grateful thank you once again for your outstanding service.
