Road Traffic Law or Motoring Law is an area of Law that can have a profound effect on our everyday life.

Being found guilty of a motoring offence is only the beginning of the devastation that you could face which is often followed by the loss of employment and/or the ability to earn and support yourself and your family.

Our Specialist Motoring defence team are ready to advise and represent you on ALL aspects of Motoring Law throughout the UK.

We assist you by building a robust defence against all charges you face from those considered to be minor to fatal road accidents and from your initial contact with us we will provide you with a quotation of what our costs will be with no hidden extras.

Public funding is not usually available for motoring offences so we know the importance of getting the figures right as well as the facts.

Appealing Against a Conviction

We can assist you to appeal against a conviction in the Magistrates’ Court in one of two ways:

  1. by appealing to the Crown Court,
  2. by appealing to the High Court by way of case stated.

Appealing to the Crown Court means a retrial, where your case will be heard again before a Judge and two Magistrates, as though the first trial had not taken place.

We can prepare and submit your appeal to the Crown Court and we can advocate on your behalf at the appeal.

If you decide to take your case to the High Court, this involves a hearing in which we will seek to establish whether the Magistrates Court made an error during your original trial, applying the law incorrectly or acting outside of their jurisdiction, we can assist you with this action from start to finish.

Our service to you doesn’t end there. We can advise you in areas such as:

  • Driver rehabilitation course
  • Drug driving law
  • Fixed Penalty Notices
  • Getting your licence back early
  • Parking tickets
  • Totting up and exceptional hardship
