We are able to offer representation with the benefit of legal aid for most criminal offences. However some offences do not attract legal aid. This includes a number of motoring offences:

We have dedicated solicitors who prepare and represent clients for motoring matters at the Magistrates’ Court. We offer competitive rates on a fixed fee basis so you know the cost of your case at the outset. If there are any additional costs then we will inform you at the outset of the case. Our fees for motoring offences are:

Preparation and attendance at the Magistrates Court for a first hearing/preparatory hearing or case management hearing (excl trial) £150 plus vat.
