Motoring Solicitors – When your job involves driving

People who are on the move as part of their job are especially high risk due to the amount of time spent in a vehicle. When your job involves driving you can find yourself in a very vulnerable position if you commit a motoring offence and your licence is at risk. In cases where a disqualification is a the only likely outcome, reducing the length of time spent disqualified is what our specialised motoring solicitors would be aiming for.

When the offence is more serious nature the consequences can be devastating and can result in a custodial sentence. Given that driving is an important part of a modern, fast paced world it is vital that you get the right advice from our motoring solicitors before attending court, this will help you to make the right decision on how to deal with a charge. The consequences of a driving conviction can be completely life changing which is why it is important that you seek legal advice relating to your driving offence.

Best practice in cases of intended prosecution

If you been contacted by the police or have been sent a notice of intended prosecution, we can advise you of the way forward. Good advice would be to contact us early as some options, such as driver awareness courses, are not available once a court date has been set. If you have been summoned to court our specialised motoring solicitors in Leeds can provide you with information on the likely outcome of your case and, if necessary, defend you in court, especially if you face a driving ban and/or disqualification.

Appealing a conviction for motor crime

You are able to appeal against a conviction in the Magistrates’ Court one of two ways – either by appealing to the Crown Court, or by appealing to the High Court. The differences between the two options relate to the approach that will be taken to your appeal. Appealing to the Crown Court means a retrial, where your case will be heard again before a Judge and two Magistrates, as though the first trial had not taken place. On the other hand, if you take your case to the High Court, this involves a hearing which will strive to establish whether the Magistrates Court made an error during your original.

  • 5 star review  Stuck in a legal rut? call Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP. in 2017 we had new UPVc flush fit windows fitted to our three bedroom detached house. From the day the windows were fitted we had problems and issues. A question I often ask myself, time after time. Is why did I pay the full amount knowing I wasn’t 100% happy. The window company Ryburne Windows of Halifax kept fobbing us off with excuses after excuses. They had our money and we felt powerless to do anything. They didn’t even have a formal complaints procedure. Which they were supposed to have being a CERTASS member. The Director of Ryburne’s told us, “just keep on writing in as the buck stops with me”. After many letters of complaint to the window company and CERTASS - who are a complete waste of time. We decided after two and a half years of complaining we would instruct a Solicitor. We went to see Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP armed with many documents and photos of the poorly fitted and poorly manufactured windows. Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP instantly understood our predicament and agreed to take on our case. Despite all the photographical evidence and a joint independent Royal Institute Chartered Surveyors (RICS) report into the manufacture and installation of the windows. The window company still wouldn’t accept the findings of the Surveyor’s report. They even got a former associate of theirs recommended by CERTASS to do a desk top critic of the independent surveyor's report. They failed on their attempt to introducing it as evidence to the courts. Thanks to a robust defence from Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP. With less than eight weeks before the reconvened hearing - May 2020, The window company decided to settle. After some tough negotiations by Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP. We got our money back for the windows plus our legal expenses. This would never have been achieved if it wasn’t for Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP. Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP, a firm you can trust. 30th April 2020
