Belinda Smyth – Client Services Manager
Between our lawyers we have appeared in court thousands of times representing clients with drink driving charges.
Since 2010 we have been representing people throughout the Cleveland region who have been charged with a DUI or Drink Driving charge and need a good traffic lawyer to represent them. We aren’t a firm that does traffic law as just one area of law, we do traffic law exclusively.
Our client’s often come to us nervous, worried and needing answers. This is not a time for uncertainty over your future nor the costs you will pay. The stress that a drink driving charge causes to people can be overwhelming, having a lawyer to help will give you a lot of relief.
We strive to give you immediate comprehensive advice and a fixed fee so you can be sure of your legal costs and whether you qualify for a work licence. While we will never be the cheapest we do offer the best value in our humble opinion.
Our prices include;
- full preparation for court and devising strategy to minimise penalty
- negotiations with the police prosecution unit including obtaining traffic history and charge documents
- preparing for what we will tell the Magistrate
- advising you on how to obtain character references
- all telephone calls and emails
- detailed information to you on the likely disqualification period and fine and information on what will happen at court and afterwards

Why should I choose you and not just represent myself?
We understand that many people do just represent themselves in court for a drink driving charge. Unfortunately some believe the duty lawyer will assist them which they will not for a drink driving charge unless you are facing a prison sentence.
We get calls every week from people who have represented themselves and had a terrible outcome and are now desperate to try and do something to overturn the decision. Just some of the reasons to engage a traffic lawyer includes;
- We have appeared in Cleveland hundreds of times this means we know what the Magistrates want to hear to minimise the disqualification period
- We can advise you if you qualify for a work licence
- We are there to look after your interests, neither the Magistrates nor the Police Prosecutor is going to do that, you need someone on your side
- We can take you through the whole process so you are not worried what will occur in Cleveland court as we would have explained everything to you and will be with you at court to assist you. This will dramatically reduce your stress levels
- engaging us shows the court you are taking your charges seriously
