Here at Kendalls Solicitors we pride ourselves in the knowledge and representation we are able to provide in this field of law.
If you are reading this, then you are in need of our services in respect of one or more Motoring Offences.
It is generally the case, that those requiring such assistance have never found themselves in this situation before and are therefore in unfamiliar territory. At Kendalls we have the experience and knowledge in this specialist field to answer your questions and put you at ease.
If you have been charged or reported with a motoring offence (or are anticipating such) then we can help you. Offences such as Speeding, Driving without due care and attention, Driving whilst above the alcohol/drugs limit, amongst many others require the assistance of specialist Solicitors.
Whilst the Offence itself is worrying, then so are the potential costs involved. Below we set out the costs that are likely to arise for matters in this particular area of law.
Our fees for dealing with motoring matters can vary depending on whether there is likely to be a Guilty or Not Guilty plea, the number of hearings involved and the location of the Court that is seized of the matter. It will be necessary for us to acquire all the facts and details of your particular matter and of your own personal circumstances, along with acquiring full disclosure and possible liaison with both the Prosecuting Authorities and Courts.
We offer both Fixed fees and Hourly Rates, depending upon the nature of the matter. Our hourly rates are the same for both of our Solicitors at up to a maximum of £200 per hour.
All of our Fees and Disbursements are subject to VAT @ 20%.
Initial Advice up to one hour – Fixed Fee - £200 Plus VAT @ 20%.
Single Hearings at the Magistrates Court – For those matters that can only be dealt with at the Magistrates Court on a single hearing then our fees range from £500 to £1,500 Plus VAT @ 20 %.
These fees include.
The fees quoted above are Fixed and include the services detailed above. However, there may well be factors which may increase the fee in your matter. Where this is likely to result in additional costs, then you will be kept informed at an early stage along with the anticipated costs.
Services not included in the Fixed Fee
Should you decide to Plead not guilty or your matter requires an adjournment, i.e. for trial, this is not included in the fixed fee. Neither will the fixed fee include any of the following services which will be charged at our hourly rate (see above).
Expenses and disbursements are not included in the fee quoted. Examples of such include:
Key stages (based on a guilty plea and that you have a date for a hearing)
We have outlined what we should expect from you. In return we would ask that you attend promptly when asked to and provide us with any information or material we may find appropriate as soon as possible. Remember, we are only as good as the instructions/information you give us.
Should you have any questions arising from the above please contact Kendalls Solicitors and ask to speak to Robin Phoenix or Imran Hussain.
