Minor Motoring Offences

MINOR MOTORING OFFENCES

At Jones & Co, our charges are open and transparent. We will always agree the funding method and estimated costs before we start work with you on your matter.  Our aim is to be up-front and transparent about costs.

When dealing with minor motoring offences such as speeding and drink driving, based upon a guilty plea, we offer the following fixed fees which are calculated based upon the location of the Court that your matter is being dealt with:

 

Court Fee

 

Mansfield Magistrates’ Court £500.00 plus VAT

 

Nottingham Magistrates’ Court £600.00 plus VAT

 

Sheffield Magistrates’ Court £600.00 plus VAT

 

 

We will of course represent you at other Courts; however, the fixed fee charge will depend upon the distance to be travelled.

The fee includes the following work:

  • Attendance upon you and preparation:
  • Considering evidence;
  • Taking your instructions;
  • Providing advice on likely sentence.
  • Attendance and representation at a single hearing at the Magistrates’ Court.The fee does not include:
  • Instruction of any expert witnesses;
  • Taking statements from any witnesses;
  • Advice and assistance in relation to a Special Reasons Hearing;
  • Advice or assistance in relation to any appeal.

The key stages of your matter are based on the presumption that you have entered a guilty plea and have a date for your hearing:

  • Meet with your solicitor to provide instructions on what happened;
  • We will consider initial disclosure, and any other evidence and provide advice;
  • Arrange to take any witness statements if necessary;
  • We will explain the Court procedure to you so you know what to expect on the day of your hearing, and the sentencing options available to the Court;
  • We will conduct any further preparatory work, obtain further instructions from you if necessary and answer any follow-up queries that you have;
  • We cannot provide a timescale of when your hearing will take place, as this depends on the Court listings for that day;
  • We will attend Court on the day and meet with you before going before the Court. We anticipate being at Court for half a day, although this can be longer in certain cases;
  • We will discuss the outcome with you. If advice is required on appeal, this will carry an additional cost.
