Lucy Whitaker, Solicitor/Director

Lucy Whitaker, Driving Offence SolicitorMy aim is not only to get you the best result but to reduce the stress of the court process.

I will of course save your driving licence wherever possible!

If you’ve not dealt with the court system before, it can be a daunting process. I have been a specialist driving offence solicitor for many years and have represented countless drivers in court. You will be confident that you are in safe hands as I guide you through the process.

Since 2008, I have worked exclusively as a driving offence lawyer. I now work only for private defendants charged with driving offences, 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.

To make a free enquiry, call us on 0115 7840382 or send us a message.

Will I Deal with a Driving Solicitor?

Yes of course. As the number of drivers contacting us has increased, Pragma Law has grown. If Lucy is not representing you, your case will be dealt with by a highly experienced solicitor or barrister.

“I would not allow anyone to represent my clients that I wouldn’t allow to represent me if I were ever in court.”

All solicitors have over 10 years’ post qualification experience representing drivers in the courts. This is in addition to the many years of training before qualifying as solicitors.

Whether it is Lucy or one of her team representing you, Lucy will oversee your case throughout. If you have instructed us and need to speak to Lucy personally, she would be very happy to give you a call regardless of who is dealing with your case. Promoting the firm’s reputation is extremely important to us and your satisfaction is vital in achieving that.

You will be given clear advice from the outset about what to expect and, wherever possible, how much it will cost. We will do our best to put you at ease and explain the strength of your case.

    Just out of few miles.
    As we wheel around we do step at times on the lines labelled as traffic law. You could be
    … More fine at the moment but the sweet moment does not last. Out of just a few miles, the minute problem starts snowballing to a self-unmanageable level. Paper from traffic police paper from the court, bitter mouth, the clock is ticking and nothing sensible comes to mind of what to write to the court rep. When a problem starts simmering and climes we tend to run out of fit ideas. Some call it panicking and I agree. Pragma law has a different set of remedies for similar situations. And I am sharing this from experience. Lucy from Pragma listened to my story and said the problem is not as big as my mixed at the time mind thought it was. ‘’Leave with me and answer my emails timely and don’t worry’’ she said. Six weeks later I was out of the mud. Just like that, …out of a few miles.

    David did a great job of defending me in court.
    They communicated
    … More well and went out of their way to help.
    Couldn't recommend these solicitors enough.
