Road Traffic offences
The practical and legal consequences of losing a driving licence are significant. LA’s team is practised in advising clients about the particular circumstances which may affect or help them when faced with a prosecution for a road traffic offence; whether it is to fend off a conviction altogether, or to mitigate the effects of it (including where there are special reasons why disqualification should not be imposed, or where there may be exceptional hardship case).
Our team has acted for individuals and companies across the whole range of offences, from speeding through to fatal collisions.
Lester Aldridge is happy to discuss fee arrangements to ensure that legal costs are kept predictable, affordable and clear.
