Drink Driving & Traffic Law Case Studies

If you are faced with drink driving offences or traffic charges, and are looking for advice about the law and real results of real cases, you are in the right place.

We have an extensive number of case studies for drink driving and traffic law cases and our lawyers have a wealth of experience in all charges.

These case studies have been anonymised. We have changed ages and places of offence so as to make sure that people can not identify a client of ours from these case studies.

They are provided to give you an idea of the scope of work that we cover and also to have some idea of penalties in cases.

The case studies are, naturally, weighted towards where a lawyer has got a good result for a client. Our solicitors generally post them because they think it is an interesting or great result. They should not be used to reason that if you are charged with the same offence you will get the same penalty.

Below are some of our recent drink driving and traffic offence case studies
