Criminal Investigations by the Insolvency Service
by Camilla Rents | Criminal Defence Generally
Being convicted of a driving offence can have far reaching consequences. Not only will a conviction often result in a financial penalty, you could also face losing your driving licence or, in the most serious cases, a prison sentence. If you require your driving licence for work, or if a family member or loved one depends on your assistance, a disqualification could be devastating.
Old Bailey Solicitors have vast experience representing those charged with driving offences, no matter how serious. The law surrounding motoring offences is complicated. The rules are strict and even cases which seem straightforward can be complex, time-consuming and stressful. We can advise you whether or not you have a defence and, even where you don’t, we may be able to help you to keep your licence by arguing special reasons or exceptional hardship.
Certain driving offences, for example, drink driving or driving whilst disqualified, can attract a prison sentence. Some offences are so serious that they may only be tried by the Crown Court before a Judge and Jury. If you have been charged with a driving offence, we strongly recommend that you contact us to engage the services of our expert criminal defence solicitors.
