Road Traffic Offences

When faced with an allegation of a road traffic offence, it is important to have a solicitor who can give you the help and expertise you need without delay.

You have been charged with a road traffic offence: what is most important to you?

  • To keep your driving licence, which can be crucial to your livelihood.
  • To avoid disqualification under the totting up provisions.
  • To avoid rising insurance premiums.
  • Skilled and knowledgeable representation against driving offences in Scotland.
  • To be represented appropriately and potentially avoid the need to attend court.

Duncan and McConnell Solicitors are highly skilled in this technical area of law. We have successfully represented clients from all walks of life, from Members of Parliament through to blacksmiths.

Through appearing every day in the courts around Dundee, Edinburgh, Forfar, Perth, Kirkcaldy, Dunfermline as well as the rest of Scotland, we know the local areas better than anyone else and can keep costs to a minimum.

Any driving contravention or conviction could put your licence in jeopardy and could lead to higher insurance premiums or even disqualification. Duncan and McConnell Solicitors can prepare and present a compelling argument to the court as to why that shouldn’t happen using the tools of Special Reasons or Exceptional Hardship Proofs. These are technical hearings for which you should be legally represented. You are in safe hands.
