Motoring Law

Too many penalty points on your licence? Charged with a serious road traffic offence such as drink driving, careless driving or speeding?


Our motoring and road traffic law clients are usually most worried about losing their licence or even the possibility of a prison sentence. If you have these concerns, get in touch. We know we have competition from other firms in Billericay, Chelmsford and throughout Essex so we value every client. We pride ourselves on our client care

"Some firms have their own in-house counsel or barrister. We don’t. We think this limits unnecessarily the choice of courtroom representation available to you — at a critical time."

Our Motoring Offence Solicitors

Our team of motoring law and drink driving solicitors is led by the experienced Tim Gir. Tim has the technical knowledge required to exploit the weaknesses and errors in a prosecution case, which so often leads to acquittal or reduced sentence.

  • We take on every type of case. From routine matters to complex cases involving tricky points of law and grey areas. We know that many lawyers just aren’t willing to invest the energy in these unusual types of cases.
  • Some firms have their own in-house counsel or barrister. We don’t. We think this limits unnecessarily the choice of courtroom representation available to you — at a critical time.
  • Our solicitors have the expertise and advocacy skills to represent you in many instances. If we think you would benefit from specific expertise, we will use London-based barristers. But we will always make sure the barrister we get for you is the right one for the job.

Motoring Law Fees
