Price and Timescales Guide for Motoring Offences
We undertake this type of work on an hourly basis.
The hourly rate will be £272.00 per hour, however the solicitor acting will give you a clearer understanding of the actual fee once the facts of the case are known and whether or not you intend to offer a guilty plea or not.
Where applicable, VAT will be charged at 20%.
The fee will include:
- Taking your instructions
- Considering evidence
- Providing advice on a charge, the evidential case against you, any defences and likely outcome including any potential sentence.
As part of our service, we will explain the court procedure to you so you know what to expect on the day of your hearing and the sentencing options available to the court where relevant.
Once the facts of the case are fully understood, we can give you a fixed price based on the hourly figure given above. There are several factors which will determine how much the service will cost such as:
- Taking any witness statements
- Instruction of any expert witnesses
- Attendance and representation at the Magistrates Court
- Advice or assistance in relation to any appeal.
Timescales will vary greatly depending on the complexity of the case and available court dates (if applicable) but tend to be completed within 8 to 12 weeks.
We have two members of the team who may work on your matter:
