The Legal 500

Our price transparency policy aims to provide clients with a straightforward, easy to understand price list whilst offering legal advice and assistance from our motor offence solicitors, on all road traffic offences, from relatively straightforward speeding matters to more complex alcohol-related drink driving offences.

Other cases we regularly deal with include drunk in charge (drug driving and drink driving), careless driving, dangerous driving, driving whilst using a mobile phone, failing to stop/failing to report an accident, appeals against DVLA decisions, hardship and special reason hearings, fail to comply traffic signals, driving disqualifications.

Whatever your problem, we will, wherever possible, provide you with a total cost for the work required on your case. If that is not possible we will provide you with a transparent range of likely fees.

Private Rates

Road traffic law is often more difficult to resolve than it may at first appear and as a result we may need to work on a traditional hourly basis – if this is appropriate. For example, in more complex cases we will discuss likely costs in detail with you at your first consultation.

It is sometimes difficult to give a precise cost for a case at the start because every case is different and will involve a number of variable factors such as:

  • whether or not you are going to plead guilty or not guilt
  • whether expert evidence is going to be required
  • how much paperwork is included in prosecution disclosure
  • whether additional defence witnesses are going to be required to give evidence

However, we will aim to give you a clear indication of what your costs are likely to be, whatever the situation.

Where relevant we will also provide details of ‘disbursement costs’ – these are additional costs which may be required if we decided to obtain an expert’s report which we may want in a drink driving case to analyse alcohol levels at specific times. We may want a forensic- scientist to give evidence in support of your case. The cost of such a witness to give evidence at a court hearing would be classed as a disbursement.

Fixed Fees

Our motor offence solicitors can offer ‘fixed fee agreements’ for a range of different road traffic offences so you can be sure at the start of your case how much it is going to cost through to the end. Many clients prefer a fixed fee agreement if appropriate so they know whatever happens with their case the cost will remain the same.

We provide a full range of services when it comes to motoring law which includes;

Your fee will provide you with advice and assistance on your particular case and representation if requested. You will be sent a detailed letter after your initial consultation which will give you information on your case and will include a full breakdown of our costs.

We will try to give you a realistic time frame of how long your case is likely to take to conclude. This can generally be anywhere between six to eight weeks but some cases can run on for up to a year. We will keep you advised of key dates and will constantly review timescales for you.

Whatever offence you have been charged with we will do our very best to assist and advise you throughout the police/court process so you can end up with the best possible result in all of the circumstances.
