Motoring Matters

Although one of the most common areas of law, motoring law is one of the most complex areas and our team is on hand to assist and advise you.

Many motoring offences may seem relatively trivial which can be both serious and expensive. Penalty points can lead to increased insurance premiums and if you gain 12 or more penalty points within a 3 year period, you will be in danger of a minimum 6 month driving disqualification, which can leave you with devastating consequences on yourself and on your loved ones.

Our team is able to assist you whether at the Police Station, Magistrates and Crown Court.

Regulatory Crime

There is a huge range of offences investigated and then prosecuted by governmental departments for example the Health and Safety Executive, Trading Standards, the Department of the Environment, Local Authorities and various other statutory bodies in addition to criminal offences investigated by the Police.

The penalties for these offences, if convicted, range from fines which can amount to several thousand pounds to more severe penalties including imprisonment. Therefore, the potential consequences for your business are extremely severe.

We can assist you by attending at the initial interview which can often determine whether or not prosecution will follow or whether the matter is capable of resolution by another means. If necessary we can arrage for representation at the Magistrates and Crown Court.

Painters Criminal Department has 3 Partners all with over 20 years' experience of dealing with a wide range of offences so should you or your business be subject to investigation or prosecution then please contact us straightaway.
