Have you been accused of a motoring offence that you dispute or simply would like to achieve the most favourable outcome in the circumstances? 


Do you want to know if you should accept penalty points or plead guilty or if there is any value in challenging the allegation?


Please feel free to contact me and I will always provide free initial advice on the prospects of your case.


If there is no merit in you instructing a solicitor then I will tell you. Integrity is fundamental to my ethos and I probably tell more than half of the people who contact me that they do not need a lawyer.


I specialise in Motoring Law and defends motorists throughout England and Wales who face investigation or prosecution under Road Traffic laws.


I understands that for many of us, a driving licence is essential for employment purposes and to manage the commitments of everyday life and that the loss of your licence can have far reaching and negative consequences.


I advise on technical defences and legal loopholes to present arguments to the Court that avoid driver disqualification. If there is a way of keeping your licence I will find it.


I am an experienced motoring lawyer who provides specialist legal advice and representation to individuals and businesses where allegations of driving or vehicle offences have been made. Our clients know I will provide frank and honest advice on the merits of a case and we will bring my significance experience to bear in order to protect your driving licence and to achieve the most favourable outcome for you in all of the circumstances.


Our regulator requires us to publish our fees, which in most case will be fixed:
