Road Traffic Offences

Speeding…? Jumping a red traffic light…? Drink driving…?

Using a mobile phone while driving…? Threat of disqualification….?

You’ll understandably be worried about whether the charge is fair and correct, whether a conviction can still be avoided, whether you’ll receive Penalty Points or be disqualified and whether you can find straightforward, practical and caring advice and assistance to resolve something which, very personal to you as it is, can also blight the lives of your friends, family and colleagues.

Road Traffic offences have a habit of turning lives upside down and you need the right support and the right advice at the right time

If you are facing a court date then you may already be at significant risk of disqualification, not to mention higher insurance premiums. Seeking legal advice from expert driving offence solicitors could really make the difference.

Supporting you every step of the way

Newnham & Jordan serve Bournemouth, Poole, Southampton, Dorchester, Weymouth, Salisbury and the whole of the surrounding Dorset, Hampshire & Wiltshire areas and, in fact, can assist with driving cases anywhere in England and Wales. So whether you were stopped or your vehicle was photographed in Bournemouth, Brighton or Birmingham, Newnham & Jordan Solicitors will help and support you every step of the way with honest, practical, knowledgeable and very personal advice and representation.

Effective, reliable and down to earth road traffic advice is everything.

There are many firms out there offering a dedicated road traffic offering, some good, some less good, some that can spell on their websites and some that can’t (it’s true), some that have videos and some that don’t. Newnham & Jordan expert motoring defence lawyers are dedicated to technical and legal accuracy, client satisfaction and, above all, meeting and exceeding their clients’ needs and expectations.

The internet is great and can tell you a lot about road traffic offences and everything else in life but, like with most things, finding the answer to your specific problem is often quite another matter.

Reliable advice is everything. Whatever the motoring offence our road traffic expert lawyer has many years’ experience in this area of law, is well used to dealing with the police and Crown Prosecution Service, has access to the relevant case law and resources, and can instruct experts to support your case where necessary.

Road traffic law is constantly evolving and with new offences, new digital camera technology and in-car video drivers are at ever greater risk of road traffic fixed penalties or prosecution in the Magistrates Court. Protecting your driving licence and avoiding disqualification under the totting up procedure or for the offence itself becomes a high priority for anyone facing a road traffic case.
