Driving Without A Licence

Driving Whilst Disqualified

We can assist any person who is to be interviewed by the police for a Driving Whilst Disqualified offence or those who have already been charged and are due to attend court. We offer specialist legal advice and representation for a range of Road Traffic Offences, and are available to help you today.


Driving Without Insurance

Many drivers do not realise the severity of the law relating to driving a motor vehicle without insurance. We can help you if you have received a conditional offer of a Fixed Penalty or a summons to attend court for Driving without Insurance. Get in touch now for urgent advice.



A Speeding charge can have serious consequences and impact your freedom and livelihood. We know how stressful it can be to face a Road Traffic Offence and will work tirelessly to achieve the best possible outcome for your circumstances.


Totting Up/Exceptional Hardship

Any driver who accumulates 12 or more penalty points in a three year period will receive a mandatory disqualification of six months. We can provide you with the necessary legal support and representation.


Special Reasons

If a court accepts that there are Special Reasons applicable to your case, whilst you would still be guilty of the offence, your licence will not be endorsed with penalty points for that offence or the magistrates may decide to endorse your licence with fewer points than they would have.


Wrongful Use of a Disabled Badge (Blue Badge) Offences

Local authorities are prosecuting Blue Badge Offences more and more and we are often asked to assist people who have unintentionally misused a disabled badge or did not appreciate the serious implications that follow from doing so. Get in touch for advice tailored to your circumstances.

Our Criminal Law Services

With over 19 years criminal law experience we are able to provide clients with a robust, attentive, personal and knowledgeable private criminal law advice and assistance including the following areas:


Benefit Fraud

We know that facing a Benefit Overpayment or Fraud allegation can be incredibly daunting. Our clients are often reassured by the ability to speak to us directly at any time via telephone or email and often praise us for our extensive knowledge of the law whilst maintaining a friendly and approachable manner. We can help.


Benefit Appeal and Tribunal

Our senior solicitor Lucinda Dore has a strong and highly regarded reputation for successfully challenging DWP, HMRC and Local Authority decisions at Appeal Tribunals over her many years of practice. Her reputation and success rate takes her all around the country.


Business and Regulatory

We appreciate the reputational and financial implications a criminal investigation or prosecution can have on your business. Companies often make the mistake of trying to resolve these issues without seeking professional legal advice and most people that we act for wish that they had sought advice and assistance earlier. Let us help you today.

Our Local Authority Investigation Services

We can help you if you have received a letter from the council, invited to attend an interview under caution, or have received a summons for any council matter including;


Education Act Offences

If your child is of compulsory school age and is registered at a school but fails to attend regularly, you as the parent are guilty of a Criminal Offence. Should you find yourself in this predicament, contact Lucinda Dore Solicitors.


Food Hygiene

We appreciate that running a successful small food business can be difficult at the best of times but to be faced with an investigation or prosecution can be hugely damaging for a business. We can defend any council prosecution and have assisted restaurants, bars and other small food businesses for a number of years. Contact us now.


Fly Tipping

We can assist any person or business who faces an investigation or prosecution for Fly Tipping. We can attend an interview with you at the council offices or attend court to provide advocacy to mitigate your offence or to defend the charge to protect you or your business. Get in touch now.


Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) Offences

It can be difficult for landlords to keep up to date with their ever changing legal requirements. A conviction for a HMO Offence can have serious implications for future HMO licence applications which require a ‘fit and proper’ requirement to be met by applicants. Let us help you today.
