Motoring Law

Advice and Assistance

We represent our clients when they face allegations in the Magistrates Court for Motoring Law offences.  These include allegations in relation to drink driving, drug driving, speeding, driving without due care and attention, failing to provide information as to who was driving and indeed any type of motoring case in the Magistrates Court.

John Goodwin, a solicitor and the head of our team, who qualified in 1982 is always happy to appear on your behalf to deal with these cases.  There may be occasions when Mr Goodwin is unavailable in which case another solicitor or barrister will cover the hearing.

We have dealt with a full range of these cases for many years in Courts covering the length and breadth of the country.

We also represent clients who have 12 points or more on their licence and are facing a 6-month ban.  In those cases we have on many occasions successfully saved their licences on the basis that they would suffer exceptional hardship should they be disqualified.

Pricing

We charge an hourly rate of £250 plus VAT per hour for all work done by Mr Goodwin and £200 plus VAT per hour for work done by the rest of the team which includes our legal executives.  Mark Jackson is a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives and Kevin Ripley is a Chartered Legal Executive Advocate.

If another solicitor, or Barrister, appears at Court for you instead of Mr Goodwin then their charging rates are a maximum of £200 per hour.

If you instruct us to deal with the case then at the very first meeting we will give you an estimate as to how many hours are likely and we are often prepared to cap the fee so that we will give you a maximum that will not be exceeded.  Our fee estimates will cover all work done in connection with the case and all Magistrate Court hearings.

The hourly rate we charge also applies to the first meeting in these offices.  If we discuss the matter with you on the telephone before a meeting then there is no charge for the initial telephone consultation.
