Charged with Drink Driving? – Help is at hand; as a specialist drink driving solicitor we may be able to save your licence.


Drink Driving is a serious matter that can lead to a prison sentence. The court has to disqualify you from driving if you are convicted of drink driving. This often leads to a loss of employment and financial difficulties.


Specialist Drink Diving Solicitor, Steve Williams, explains the process.


Case Study: Mr A was charged with drink driving. He had provided a urine sample but the police only took one sample; they split it into 2 and said that counted as 2 samples.

Result: the court threw the case out, client kept his licence and our costs were repaid to him.


There are very strict guidelines that the police have to follow. If they do not follow these then the court have to throw the case out.


We specialise in finding a defence for drink driving matters.


Case Study: Ms C was charged with failing to provide a breath test. We were able to establish that there were medical grounds for not being able to provide a specimen.

Result: case dismissed and our legal costs were refunded to the client.


As a drink driving solicitor we only act with motoring cases we have developed strategies for defending people charged with drink driving.


Case Study: Miss G was charged with drink driving. She told the police that she only drove to get away from an abusive boyfriend. The police did not believe her. Thankfully after we got involved the court did believe her and found her not guilty.

Result: she was able to keep her licence and carry on working. Of course all of her legal costs were repaid to her.


There are a lot of things that can go wrong with a drink driving prosecution and we are able to identify these and ensure that you are not convicted when there is a defence.


Even if there is not a defence, we may still be able to keep your licence.


Sometimes there are Special Reasons that the court can take into account that will allow someone who is guilty of drink driving to keep their licence. These are shortness of distance driven, emergency and where someone has given you more alcohol than you were aware of (spiked drinks).


If we can’t find a defence or Special Reasons, then we will be able to reduce the level of your ban. We understand that, in cases where you simply misjudged when you would be under the limit, clients often do not want to find a ‘loophole’; they often want expert representation to mitigate on their behalf and have the case concluded quickly and without stress. We almost always get a lower ban than the guidelines suggest you should receive. See our Mitigation Page to see how.


Don’t just take our word for it; see what our clients say about us on our Testimonials page.
