As Christmas is fast approaching, even though restaurants and pubs may be closed, the festivities are still in full swing. At this time of year drink driving is a lot more common. If you choose to drink and drive you can easily find yourself being stopped, and if you are over the legal limit, you will be arrested, charged and prosecuted.  If you are prosecuted you may be at risk of a custodial sentence being imposed, in addition to a mandatory disqualification for a minimum of 12 months. Drink driving can have lasting, severe and devastating consequences for you for the future.

Attending Court can be a frightening experience, especially if you have not attended before. At Paul Robinson Solicitors we can advise you how best to present your case and represent you at Court.

If you think your drinks have been spiked or that something else has happened, call us so that we can advise you on your case and advise you as to whether you have a defence. We offer fixed fee consultations, with no hidden costs.

You are entitled to free independent legal advice at the police station, which we offer 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We have specialist solicitors who can assist you at the police station and represent you at Court if you are charged. Call us on 01702 342525 24/7, 365 days a year.
