TML Solicitors criminal defence team can offer advice and representation in matters relating to motoring offence and driving licence offences in both the Magistrates’ Court and Crown Court. We give clear advice about the strength of evidence in a case and the prospects of success for our clients. The court process can be complex and it may be the first time you are faced with any type of proceedings. Therefore it is important to have a knowledgeable legal team to represent you.
We represent clients who have allegedly committed a range of road traffic offences such as; death by dangerous driving, speeding, careless driving, driving offences where you do not have sufficient proof of your ability to drive or your ability to be on the road, using a mobile phone whilst driving or driving without a seatbelt and driving whilst under the influence of drugs/alcohol.
Whatever type of motoring offence it is, it can become serious and therefore you need representation at the outset to be able to build your case.
Our solicitors can attend with you at the police station and continue to act in your matter if you are charged with an offence.
If we have to instruct a barrister to represent you in court proceedings, then we have links with a number of very experienced barristers.
Legal Aid is not typically available for motoring offences dealt with in the Magistrates’ Court, but we would be happy to discuss this further on a case-by-case basis depending on eligibility.
For the fees quoted (please see our Pricing page), our services include:
If your case is dealt with at the first Hearing, then it will be completed on that occasion. However, if your matter is listed for Trial or proceeds to the Crown Court, then the Court will determine the timescales of your matter and this can vary up to 12 months. The process for exceptional hardship / special reasons cases depends on the circumstances and complexity of your case. Often, the Court will deal with this at the first Hearing but has the power to adjourn the matter to a Hearing listed in the future.
