Road Traffic Offences
Losing your driving licence could result in the loss of your employment, your home, and your family
We're Here to Help
I have extensive and specialist experience in defending all aspects of road traffic offences from the most minor to the most serious. This includes the most serious offences of causing death by dangerous driving to careless driving, speeding, drink-driving, driving without insurance and driving without a licence amongst others. I constantly monitor and keep abreast of the latest legislation and case law relating to road traffic offences to ensure all of my clients receive the very best representation possible. Each case is considered carefully on its merits to establish whether there is an arguable defence particularly in relation to speeding offences. The instruction of a suitable road traffic expert is always considered and I have an excellent database of Scotland’s most established experts in this field. Consideration is always given to whether there are any special circumstances which may avoid disqualification. No road traffic offence is too large or too small to receive the benefit of my experience and dedicated attention.
The answer requires legal analysis and is often misunderstood. I will provide you with a suitable appraisal and advise on the prospects of success to ensure that you can make suitably informed decisions.
Expert advice and legal assistance is required immediately upon detention for any offence and preferably before any police interview is conducted as admissions made during such an interview can significantly affect any possible defence.
I am registered to provide criminal legal assistance by the Scottish Legal Aid Board and can provide advice on eligibility for legal aid and alternative payment arrangements. Full disclosure of fee charging is provided.
This will depend on the particular circumstances of each prosecution and the seriousness of the offence. In some cases it may be possible for me to attend court on your behalf. I can discuss this with you in greater detail at the consultation.
