What happens at the police station is often more important than what occurs in the courtroom in terms of determining the outcome of a case. Most cases are won or lost at the police station. Confessions, sometimes false, are obtained from suspects, evidence is gathered, deals are done, and decisions are made which will inevitably influence the course of subsequent events. Accordingly it is vital to instruct an experienced lawyer from the outset.

We offer professional legal advice, information and representation for a range of motoring offences including careless driving, dangerous driving, speeding, speeding disqualification and drink driving.
Drink driving carries a minimum 12 month disqualification and a financial penalty. In more serious cases, the court can impose a community order and even a custodial sentence (prison). You may have a defence without knowing. All our initial advice is completely free of charge.
You may receive a custodial prison sentence for drink driving if your offence surpasses the ‘custody threshold’. The custody threshold is reached when a fine, community sentence and/or licence points alone are not severe enough as punishment for an offence, and custody – i.e. imprisonment – must be considered as a sentence.
