Do I need a specialist drink drive solicitor?
I am often asked this by clients. What can a specialist drink drive lawyer do for me?
There is rarely a defence to drink driving and often it is a case of damage limitation. The court must disqualify you for drink driving and the minimum disqualification for drink driving is 12 months.
So how can a drink drive solicitor help? For a lot of people a driving licence is crucial, it can mean the difference between being able to work and being unemployed.
There is no excuse for drink driving and the courts come down hard on those that are caught drink driving. The courts have a large discretion in terms of length of ban for drink driving. Say the wrong thing in front of the court and they will think you are not taking it seriously and increase your ban.
Expert mitigation by a specialist drink driving lawyer can make a difference in terms of the ban. A specialist drink drive solicitor will know the right thing to say to the court to show that you do understand the seriousness of the situation but also persuade the magistrates that you are not a risk to the public and that you can be trusted with a short ban.
If having a licence is essential for your work employing a drink drive solicitor to reduce the ban by a few months may well be a good investment.Tags: drink driving legal aid, drink driving solicitors
