About David Barton
30 years experience
I qualified as a solicitor in 1982 and have represented drivers involved in road traffic prosecutions all my working life. In fact the very day I qualified I represented a motorist who had been summoned for driving without insurance. In the last 30 years as a motorists' solicitor I have represented hundreds of clients in connection with all types of driving offences in courts throughout the South East.
I do all the work
I am a Solicitor Advocate which means I can help and represent you in Magistrates' Courts and Crown Courts. Not all solicitors can do this and I can help avoid duplication and expense by undertaking all the work for you instead of using others.
Because I am a specialist motorists’ lawyer, I am the only person in my firm who will deal with your case. I won’t pass it to anyone else to deal with, and I will prepare your case and attend Court with you until it is finished.
In complex cases there are occasions when I have to work with other specialists, for example accident reconstruction experts, or those qualified to analyse CCTV footage or speed detection equipment. When that is necessary I know who to work with.
You will find me to be clear, concise and accessible.
The amount of work you undertook on my behalf was a credit to the profession...because of your dedication you obtained a very successful outcome, against great odds and therefore enabled me to retain my employment...
My ethos and values
My approach to my work is very simple. If I think you have an arguable case I will work tenaciously to achieve the best possible outcome. Conversely, I won’t take your time or money pursuing arguments that are unrealistic, and I will tell you honestly and straightforwardly if I do not consider you have a defence.
I will provide you with an excellent service, bespoke and tailored exactly to your requirements.
I have been helping clients throughout Kent and the South East all my working life and have acquired an understanding of how local Courts react to many of the circumstances my clients face.
I do not offer a national service but instead provide a high quality personal service in Kent and the South East where I primarily work. My clients value the continuity of service that I am able to offer.
