Nationwide Barristers recognise the significant stress that can be caused by the receipt of a notice of intended prosecution (NIP) or being charged with drink driving. Ultimately, such an event can have a significant adverse effect on someone’s life.
We aim to provide clear and cogent advice from the start so that the client is aware of the prospects in successfully defending a complaint and what the likely outcome is going to be. Put simply, it is the role of your public access barrister to provide you with realistic advice and effective representation at Court. We have no difficulty in advising where clients are in significant evidential difficulties or running matters to trial in appropriate circumstances.
A number of offences carry obligatory disqualifications, others carry penalty point endorsements on licences and quite often people can be faced with financial penalties. As a result, insurance premiums can rise and have ramifications on your life. Our public access barristers aim to provide representation in respect of a wide range of motoring offences, many of which are detailed below:
Section 172 and failing to provide driver details
Driving without due care and attention
Using a mobile telephone whilst driving
Traffic light/road sign offences
Fixed penalty notices
Failing to stop/failing to report an accident
With Nationwide Barristers the client benefits from being represented by a public access barrister at Court. A barrister will have conduct of your trial in the event of an allegation being disputed and in circumstances where an admission of fault is appropriate, a barrister will mitigate on the client’s behalf. With the fixed-fees offered by our experts the client is able to benefit from a public access barrister’s advice in advance of any hearing over the telephone or in conference as to the appropriate steps to be taken in respect of their case with the transparency of a start-to-finish fixed-fee. A direct access barrister will be able to advise as to the alternative/range of penalties available such as speed awareness courses, ban reduction courses and financial penalties.
Motoring offences can often be anything but straightforward and our public access barristers have experience in securing acquittals on legal technicalities in, for example, drink driving offences. We are skilled in securing favourable outcomes for those people who are at risk of significant penalties on pleading guilty. If you instruct Nationwide Barristers to handle your motoring difficulty then we can ease the burden and provide you with straightforward advice and representation at affordable prices.
