We appreciate that losing your licence will impact hugely on many areas of your life and may even lead to the loss of your job. We therefore provide you with an honest appraisal of your case from the outset.
When defending clients facing drink driving charges, we advise them on their defence and how best to present this in court. Where a defence is not immediately apparent, we may suggest further investigations, such as obtaining CCTV footage, to see if any technical defence through a procedural error is available. We also instruct experts who conduct a “back calculation” to determine if the alcohol was consumed immediately after driving but before arrest.
In cases where a defence is not available, we will endeavour to minimise the sentence you receive. In some circumstances this can include arguing “special reasons” in order to avoid losing your licence.
Below are some common scenarios that we deal with:
- driving with excess alcohol;
- driving or attempting to drive while unfit through alcohol;
- in charge of a vehicle while drunk;
- death by careless driving while under the influence;
- failure to provide a specimen;
- failure to co-operate with preliminary breathalyser test; and
- failure to give permission for lab blood test.
It is important that you instruct solicitors with the technical expertise to defend these types of cases.
