If you’ve been charged with drink-driving then you’re probably wondering what to do and worrying about the future. The penalties can be harsh, and you may lose your license and/or your freedom. Even after you have paid your fines the consequences continue. Your employment might be compromised, your leave in the UK might be affected and there might be the loss of reputation.
Having drink driving solicitors London by your side can make all the difference
If you’ve been arrested, it’s critical that you get good legal advice right away so that you know your rights and options. It could make all the difference. We provide representation in Magistrates Courts and Police Stations.
Fighting a drink-driving charge can be complex. Our experienced and specialised drink driving lawyers London will thoroughly investigate your case and determine how to get the best outcome for you. There are many possible defences, for example:
- Was there a problem with the breath testing device?
- Are the blood or urine test results valid and admissible?
- Did the police office follow correct procedure?
- Was the car being driven in a public place?
- When was the alcohol consumed?
- How long was the alcohol consumed?
Hiring experienced drunk driving lawyers may help you to get your license back, avoid points, avoid a conviction on your record and avoid prison time.
Do I have to provide a specimen?
The breathalyser test alone is not enough to convict you of drink-driving. If it indicates that you were over the limit then the police will conduct a further test. If you refuse this test then you can be charged with Failure to Provide a Specimen. The penalties for this are similar to those for drink-driving.
What are the likely penalties?
It depends on your previous convictions and the circumstances of your case. If you engage our services our experienced drink driving lawyers will assess your case and let you know the merit of your case.
