Legal Aid and Motoring Offences - Patterson Law
Can you get Legal Aid?
It's highly unlikely that anyone charged with what is classed as a "minor road traffic offence" will be able to get legal aid to fund their representation.
The court only tends to grant legal aid to people who are at risk of imprisonment.
At Patterson Law we only deal with cases on a private fee paying basis.
We try and make sure that our fees are as reasonable as possible and, if we win, we try and get as much of your fees back for you in the form of a defendant's costs order.

Clarke v CPS 2013 EWHC 366 (Admin)
It's not easy to defend a speeding allegation and its becoming increasingly difficult with cases like this.
A new client came to us after being banned by the Magistrates for 6 months. He had accumulated 12 points within 3 years and the Magistrates court banned him for 6 months. The client tried to argue exceptional hardship on his own and the court rejected his argument.
Our client instructed us to represent him at court when he was charged with overloading a hired minibus. He had hired the minibus as he had his extended family visiting for a holiday. At the same time builders were refurbishing his house and asked him if he could help them collect some extra sand and cement. Our client agreed and they went with him to the DIY shop to collect the materials.
