We have an impressive track record in successfully defending clients across the whole range of road traffic offences, including:

In particular, from award-winning lawyers who are legally sharp, mentally agile, and tactically astute, you can count on us to provide the answers you really need to the questions that really matter.

  • For example, if the police require you to name the driver of a vehicle, do you have the ‘right to remain silent’, or do you have to answer?
  • In a mobile phone case, is the prosecutor able to provide evidence that your phone was being ‘used’ for ‘interactive communication’?
  • Is yours a case, such as speeding or drink driving, where the prosecution require to demonstrate that the device used by police was ‘approved’ and measuring properly?
  • Have police officers complied with crucial procedure, such as warnings or documentation?
  • Was there a genuine emergency which might amount to a defence to a particular road traffic charge?
  • Are there any special legal reasons for the court not to endorse your licence or not to disqualify you from driving. For example, on a ‘No Insurance’ charge, were you assured by the owner of the vehicle that you were in fact insured to use it?
  • Is your case one where there are ‘mitigating circumstances’ or ‘exceptional hardship’ which would prevent you from facing a ‘totting-up’ ban?

These are just some of the many crucial questions likely to crop up in the legal minefield of road traffic law. And as part of our commitment to delivering the right answers and best solutions, you can count on us to listen carefully, think cleverly and defend you vigorously.

What are the costs for our Award-Winning help?

Again, given that the result you want depends on you finding the lawyer you need, we have the confidence to provide every client with a first, diagnostic consultation, free of charge.

Thereafter, depending upon your financial position and the nature of your case, it may be possible to represent you under the Scottish Legal Aid scheme. If, however, Legal Aid is not available or appropriate in your case, we are always happy to provide you with the certainty of a fee agreed in advance, and, if you prefer, usually the reassurance of a fixed fee arrangement, rather than fees based upon each item of work. Further, in certain cases, we are able to provide you the comfort of a payment plan to spread the cost of your legal fees.

Equally, if you have a motor insurance policy or house insurance policy which provides you with cover for the legal costs of defending a motoring prosecution in Scotland, we would always be content to discuss acting for you on this basis. If you are in any doubt as to the terms of cover under any such insurance policy, again, we would be happy to examine the terms of any such policy at your first free consultation.
