Lucinda Dore Solicitors can assist you by presenting your case to the court on your behalf. We do all the talking for you, helping to alleviate the anxiety and stress that you are no doubt feeling as you await your court case.

Advice for first-time offenders.

We are often approached by clients who have never been in court before and don’t know where to turn. Most of our clients did not realize that they were over the legal limit to drive or perhaps their judgement was misguided by alcohol in their system at the time.

Lucinda Dore’s clients are often first-time offenders who need help and guidance. It can be daunting the prospect of attending court; we can make the process easier, achieving the best possible outcome for you.

Representation in court. 

We will take your full instructions about the offence and your personal circumstances and we will be able to advocate in court for you. We will select the most important and beneficial information that the court will need to hear.

We will ensure that you are fully advised of the process and are prepared for what will happen in court. We will also be able to advise you if you have any grounds to appeal against a sentence given.

Worried about losing your licence?

We can help save your driving licence or at the very least keep the disqualification to a minimum.

Don't go into court unprepared. 

We prepare your court case in advance. Our solicitors will request a copy of the Initial Disclosure of the Prosecution Evidence (IDPC) from the CPS before your court hearing. This means you will know exactly what the police and prosecution will be saying about your arrest and the case at your court hearing.

Pleading guilty or not guilty.

We will find any legal arguments that can be made in your case. We will be able to assess that evidence for you to find any legal arguments that may be possible to avoid a Disqualification from driving.

Talking in court. 

If you're worried about talking in court, don't be. We do the talking for you. At the very least, if you plead guilty, we will be able to mitigate your case in court to achieve the minimum disqualification length possible.
