Gary Roberts the firms’ Principal qualified as a solicitor in 1998 and since specialising in 2009 has represented around 6000 clients charged with drink driving related cases. The firm has a dedicated team of reviewing lawyers including Laura Heywood (qualified 2011) and Sandra Cooper (qualified 2013) who deal exclusively in this complex field of law.
We also have a panel of in-house barristers and solicitors who attend Courts nationally on a regular basis. All advocate lawyers are thoroughly briefed with the firms tried and tested methods to achieve the best possible outcome. We never simply pass the case to someone else to deal with. Our reviewing lawyers handle the matter throughout your case after the first hearing for a consistent and seamless service.
They are assisted by caseworkers and admin support staff who are always on hand to put your mind at rest should you wish to discuss any aspect of your case.
We have a proven track record in avoiding driving bans for our clients (one of our Barristers won all of his cases for the firm in 2015, 2016 and 2017) and for reducing driving bans by up to 50% in other cases.
We are one of the very few, if not the only firm of solicitors in England and Wales which deals with drink driving related cases to the exclusion of all other areas of legal practice.
As such you can rest assured with us that you will receive a first class service and that you are with a firm that genuinely specialises in drink driving related cases and at a fraction of the price of many other firms.
The attitude of your lawyer is key to opening up avenues for avoiding a driving ban. Many firms will advise you it is not possible to keep your license on a drink driving charge because they don’t have the necessary experience.
We on the other hand will adopt a lateral approach by checking video footage for procedural mistakes, use legal remedies to sanction the prosecution for case management failures, offer plea bargains and make representations for the charges to be discontinued where appropriate before the case proceeds to trial. This is how 18 clients avoided a ban over a short 25 day period with 4 of these cases on one day! (see our blog page for more details). Don’t let anyone tell you it is not possible to avoid a driving ban!
As our name ‘National Motoring Lawyers’ suggests we offer a truly national service covering all Courts in England and Wales.
