If we are instructed at short notice, and only have several days to prepare your case before the First Magistrates’ Court Hearing, the fixed fee will be higher, to reflect the fact that your case will be treated as a priority. If you have received a Court Summons for a driving offence, you should appoint us as soon as possible as this will provide us with several weeks to prepare your case and will not result in a higher fixed fee.

There is no additional cost for a meeting in person, if a telephone meeting takes place this will be instead of a meeting in person.

Hourly Rate for Driving Offences

Our lawyers can also be instructed on an hourly rate basis for Summary Only Driving Offences. Because all our lawyers are highly skilled and qualified solicitors or barristers, our hourly rate for motoring offences is set at £250+VAT. We typically dedicate 8 to 10 hours of time to each motoring offence case.

Additional Costs

If you choose to appoint us to represent you for a Summary Only Motoring Offence on a Fixed Fee basis, this includes representation at one Magistrates’ Court Hearing. If your case is not concluded within the First Hearing, due to the case being adjourned by the Court, or not concluding for any other reason, an additional fee will need to be paid if you require us to represent you at the second Magistrates’ Court Hearing. This additional fee will depend upon the offence you are being prosecuted for, the location of the Magistrates’ Court and the complexity of your case. Our lawyers will explain the cost of this from the outset.

There will also be additional cost if you would like to have more than one meeting in person or telephone meeting. Additional meetings in person or telephone meetings are charged at £500+VAT.

If you are unable to attend our office in Birmingham and would like to have a meeting in person at your home or place of work instead of a telephone meeting, this will attract an additional cost. The cost of home / work place visits varies and will take account of our travelling time, the length of the meeting and our travel expenses.

Timescales

As part of the fixed fee for Motoring Offences, we will attend the Magistrates’ Court on the day and meet with you before the commencement of your Court Hearing. We anticipate being at Court for half a day however, if we are at Court for the entire day, you will not be required to pay any additional legal fees due to our lawyers being at Court for the full day. We cannot provide a timescale of exactly when your hearing will take place, as this depends on how busy the Court is on that day.
