Road Traffic Offences

For law abiding citizens, it is more often than not that the Road Traffic Legislation will provide them an introduction to the Criminal Justice System and unfortunate encounters with the Police.

It is important that you obtain legal advice, at the earliest opportunity to deal with matters that may be regarded to you as simple in the first instance, whereas in fact are of a complex nature. The quality of your legal representation, could determine whether the offence results in disqualification or you retaining your license. Our lawyers have the expertise in all areas of road traffic offences, and are able to assist you in the following situations:
