a specialist motoring lawyer
If you drive a car, taxi or lorry, or ride a motorcycle, the chances are that sooner or later you will face a road traffic prosecution. For most people the consequences of a motoring offence may be limited to an endorsement with penalty points on their driving licence and a modest fine. For others, however, the impact may be far greater including a driving ban, which can result in the loss of a job, a large fine or even imprisonment.
The law relating to driving offences is not straightforward and many solicitors don’t offer help in this area. That's where I differ. I am a specialist motoring solicitor with with an excellent track record and experience of representing clients in the courts of Kent, Surrey, Sussex, London and across the country for nearly 30 years.
Receiving a "Notice of Intended Prosecution", a summons or being charged at a police station can be extremely stressful when the implications of a driving conviction may be disqualification or worse.
It is important to act quickly and with a sense of purpose. In these circumstances I will bring good judgement, support and a calm and clear head.
This is how I can help:
