Road traffic law

Motoring offences almost invariably have serious consequences. Some offences such as Causing Death by Dangerous Driving, Dangerous Driving or Drink Driving, by their very nature can lead to prison sentences. Other offences can still have very significant consequences because they can lead to the loss of a driving licence which can affect your employment or ability to work. Even points on your licence will lead to increased insurance premiums.

It is therefore vital that you take proper advice and are properly represented by solicitors who understand this complex area of law.  We have a specialist team able to advise and represent you in a wide variety of road traffic matters such as:-
