  • Protecting your driving licence

Being charged with a driving offence can be a distressing experience, and you will need the best possible legal help if you are to be able to stay on the road. A specialist in driving offences who not only understands your problems, but also knows the ins and outs of the justice system and can use that knowledge in your best interests.

Hammond Trotter solicitors are just the experts you need. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail, and we really do specialise in driving offences; as a matter of fact, we don’t offer any other type of legal services.

We will explore every aspect of your case with the aim of identifying intelligent solutions to your legal issues, and in the initial stages our advice is free of charge. Advice is only of real value if it comes from an expert, so right from the start of your case you will be speaking to our fully qualified solicitorsor barristers.

We operate throughout England and Wales, with the majority of our work being performed in London, Birmingham and Manchester and we will never pass your details on to any third parties.

How can we help you?

Being charged with a driving offence is not the same as actually having committed the offence – mistakes do happen, and equipment can malfunction. A charge of Drink Driving or Speeding may be a false accusation and actually due to equipment failure or even operator error, so we always begin each case with an investigation into whether you have really committed a driving offence at all. If we can establish that the accusation is a false one or there has been some irregularity with the equipment, the Crown Prosecution Service may decide not to proceed with the prosecution.

Having established that the equipment (for example a speed camera or breath test meter) is reliable, our next step is to investigate the way the procedure was carried out. There is provision within the law for us to insist that the prosecution prove their case, and if it turns out that the police or prosecuting authority have made fundamental errors, the case can be thrown out of court.

As you can see, we go through every aspect of every case in tremendous detail, but if the worst happens and the court is considering awarding penalty points or a driving ban, be assured that we will always be on hand to ensure the result is fair.
