Motoring Law

We can assist you if you are accused with a road traffic offence.

Our Approach

If you have been accused of an offence whether it be for speeding, use of a mobile phone, driving without due care and attention, dangerous driving, no insurance or any other road traffic offence we are here to help you.

If you are denying the offence we are highly experienced in taking matters to trial and our Advocate will present your case including cross-examination of the witnesses.

There are many technical requirements under the road traffic legislation and in some cases a technicality such as failing to serve a notice of intended prosecution within 14 days or to commence proceedings within 6 months will make any attempt at prosecution null and void.

Even if you are guilty of an offence we can be of great assistance to you.

If you are liable to receive penalty points which would take you to 12 or more points you should receive a minimum of 6 month disqualification.

However we have a very high success rate and many years experience in arguing exceptional hardship to the Court to prevent disqualification from driving.

In many cases you will not know whether you should contest the case and/or what your likely sentence is going to be and for that reason we provide an initial fixed fee diagnostic interview where we can provide initial advice upon the case and assess the likely outcome.

Sadly, it is increasingly rare these days to experience the highs standards of service that Jamie has provided."
