Our Process

Motoring Offences

Stage 1

Taking Instructions

In our first meeting, which we can do by telephone, you can provide us with initial information on what happened. We will consider this information and other facts available, providing you with advice on how to plead.

Stage 2

Considering Evidence

In a majority of simple motoring offences, the only option for the defendant is to try and mitigate sentencing at their hearing. We may recommend that evidence, such as witness statements or video footage, could assist in achieving this for you.

If so, we will take time prior to your hearing to compile and review evidence as well as preparing a defence based on it on your behalf. This would carry an additional cost which can vary based on the amount of evidence required, however on average the cost is £500.00 + VAT.

Stage 3

Hearing Date

Prior to the date that you have to attend court we will discuss court procedure with you as well as sentencing options available to the court, and a likely outcome for your case.

We will then attend on your hearing and make an argument on your behalf. We will discuss the outcome with you to ensure you understand the sentencing.

Stage 4

Appeal

If you wish to, and we believe there is grounds to, we can discuss your options in regards to an appeal of the decision on the day. This would carry additional cost which we are able to discuss with you.
