We have extensive experience in advising on all aspects of road traffic law and in defending clients in these types of matters. We can assist from the time of arrest through to any court hearing. If charged, most defendants will face a hearing in the Magistrates Courts but for more serious offences, such as causing death by dangerous driving, the Prosecution will often apply for the case to be heard in the District Court. It is essential to have proper and sensible advice on how and whether to assist the Police in their enquiries at the preliminary stages of an investigation, and sensible advice on the evidence should the matter go to court. We will advise you on any available defences and possible penalties, the likely costs involved and the time frame to completion if you are faced with a driving or road traffic charge or summons.
