We recognise how important your licence is to you and how losing it could have devastating affects on both your job and your family. Therefore, it is imperative that you contact our specialist team of Solicitors to receive clear advice on the options available to you in relation to the precise road traffic prosecution you face. We act for individuals and companies, especially when a key member of staff may lose their licence. We can help you keep your licence using the Special Reasons procedure.

Funding Motoring and Driving Offences

You should be aware that legal aid is not generally available for motoring offences, unless they are of the most serious kind. We recognise how difficult it is, when faced with impending court proceedings for a motoring offence, when so much is so potentially at stake. It is essential that you receive the right advice from the start. We offer a specialised fixed fee arrangement for these offences; please contact our office on 0191 567 6667 for further details.

In successful cases we will apply for a 'Defendant's Costs Order' which in most cases will result in a proportion, if not all, of your legal fees being recovered.

“It was very assuring to see you at court and I am extremely pleased with the outcome. I was impressed with your delivery of the details and this proved to be successful. I have been very anxious since the date of the offence and worried about the effect that this would have on everyone. Not least of which is the everyday school run to deliver and collect our 5yr old granddaughter from school".

"You have given me confidence in using your services in the future - NOT for motoring problems as I will be extra vigilant but for any other problems. I can only thank you for your help. I will be forever grateful".
