Pricing of Summary Only Road Traffic Offences

 

From years of experience in dealing with these matters we feel that most clients much prefer a fixed fee structure of pricing.  We are therefore able to provide you with some examples of the fixed fees charged for more routine work.

 

Every matter is different and some may not fit directly into the examples below.  If this is the case please do not hesitate to get in touch.  We will gladly sit down with you and discuss what work is required and the likely cost.

  • Meet with one of our solicitors to provide instructions on what happened.
  • We will obtain and consider the initial disclosure plus any other evidence required.
  • Arrange to take witness statements if necessary (additional cost of £100 per statement at our office. Statements taken outside our office will incur additional costs).
  • We will explain the court procedure so that you know what to expect on the day of your hearing and the sentencing options available to the court.
  • We will conduct any further preparatory work, obtain further instructions from you if necessary and answer any follow up questions you may have.
  • We will attend court on the day of your hearing and meet with you before going into court. Most matters are dealt with in half a day.
  • We will discuss the outcome with you.  If advice on appeal is required this will carry an additional cost.
