years of experience as drink driving defence specialists means that we are in a
unique position – we have extensive knowledge of motoring law, and will
carefully go through your individual circumstances to see what can possibly be
done to avoid a driving ban.
There is a common
misconception that the Court has discretion, and can allow you to keep your driving licence if you explain how difficult it will be if you lose it. This is
not true - the Court has a minimum sentence, and if you are convicted they must
give you at least a twelve month driving disqualification. However much hardship a
driving ban would cause you, your personal mitigation cannot have any effect
yourself in our hands as drink driving defence lawyers, we will go through each
case with a fine tooth comb to assess which 'plea' is your best option. Mistakes
happen, and breath test procedures for example can be investigated for defences
such as operator error or breaches of procedure, and if we are able to
demonstrate that there has been a problem, a Court will often be left with no
option but to follow the case law and acquit the accused.
We make no
guarantees of acquittal and you should certainly not listen to anyone who does,
but what we can guarantee is that we are the best in the UK and our experts
will scrutinise every stage of the procedure to see if a plea of ‘guilty’ really
is your only option.
Even if our
experts advise you that a plea of ‘guilty’ is your best option, we will use our
unrivalled knowledge of case law and statute, working towards the Court not having
to impose a disqualification. This is explained in further detail in our drink driving defences section, but our expert solicitors are happy to speak to you
right now to explain what we can do - without any initial cost to you.
