Motoring Offences

Drink Keys _62735734Owen White & Catlin Solicitors are legal specialists defending drivers nationwide charged with all motoring offences including drink driving, speeding, dangerous driving, insurance offences and those facing a driving ban amounting to 12 points on their licence.

If you have been charged with driving offences and are due to appear in court, it may be in your interest to hire a lawyer who specialises in motoring offences.

We can help you with:

  • Drink drive offences
  • Dangerous driving
  • Driving without due care
  • Speeding
  • Failure to provide driver details
  • Mobile phone offences
  • Death by dangerous driving
  • Death by careless or inconsiderate driving
  • Death while driving unlicensed
  • Document offences
  • Road traffic signs and traffic lights
  • Notice of intended prosecution

We see our role as one of keeping drivers on the road. Whether you are looking for a driving “loophole” out of the mess you are in or you simply want us to assist in limiting the damage you think is coming your way, Owen White & Catlin Solicitors are the motor offence lawyers who could fix your problem.

We meticulously prepare every case, leaving nothing to chance. We ensure that all of the leg work that could be done has been done before we enter the court room. We often find that many motorists are unaware of legal defenses that may be available to them and find it difficult to believe that it might be possible to defend the motoring offence they face by using loopholes.

We would strongly advise you to contact us at an early stage particularly if you have received a Notice of Intended Prosecution or have been given a Fixed Penalty Notice.

If you have been caught drink driving the police must follow strict procedures at the roadside and the police station in relation to your legal rights, medication, medical or mental health problems that you may have had at that time. If they do not, then a lawyer specialising in drink driving offences will argue to have the case dismissed. Many drink driving convictions fail at this stage in the proceedings or evidence of breath/blood/urine sample readings excluded.

Similarly with speeding, very often, the police and the prosecuting authorities don’t follow the guidelines that they should in terms of operating their equipment, or carrying our appropriate checks and these are often not presented correctly or may be the subject of a legal argument to challenge their validity, this is where our solicitors specialising in speeding offences can help.

Road traffic signs are also subject to very technical guidelines relating to their size, colour and the distances they should be placed in relation to cameras or junctions. There may also be defects with the paperwork you have been served with so it is very important that you contact us at an early stage to discuss these points.

We pride ourselves on offering highly effective criminal defence through one of our lawyers specialising in drink driving defence. Please call us today and we can advise on the benefits of our service and what you can expect.
