Here is our latest testimonial from a very happy client of ours who has been found Not Guilty of Drink Driving:

Ashworth Motoring Law Happy Client Testimonial

“I am writing this review in relation to my experience with Ashworth Motoring Law. Being in a position where your faced with losing your license or even prison is not a nice place to be. I did an extensive amount of research and contacted numerous solicitors for free phone consultations and just didn’t find the comfort or reassurance i needed to decide whether to part with my hard earned money or stay with a legal aid firm. It was a big decision that could affect my career and day to day life for the next few years to come. I finally got around to speaking to Alison and something just felt different about how she came across and it was pleasantly reassuring. I made the choice to go with Alison and she accepted my case. I had been charged with a drink drive offence and also an allegation of failing to stop for the police. The police and prosecution are there to just get targets and numbers up on convictions, no matter if they think you are guilty or not. That is one thing i have learnt in this. Without Alison i would not have stood a chance in hell and the police kept trying to add new things in to worsen things for me, but Alison pursued and fought and worked twice as hard as them to get the result I needed. Im normally quite smart with most things, but Alison can find a diamond in the rough instantly in every instance.  

From the beginning Alison and Colette advised and helped me and kept me more then up to date with everything that she was doing in relation to my case. They put my mind at ease all the way through. They made me feel like it was my good friends on my side helping me in a situation where someone else is trying to ruin my life. Alison was amazing and got me one of the best barristers around. We went to court and successfully walked out with not guilty verdicts to both charges. I couldn’t have been more happy and am able to continue my life normally now. I really am glad i followed my instinct and went with Ashworth Motoring Law.  

If you find yourself in any similar driving position and are a little sceptical about using a private solicitor as opposed to legal aid then I am more than happy to speak to you about my case as an independent person and I’m happy to answer any questions you have. I feel i owe Alison the respect to do that after how much she did to help me and successfully at that. I have unfortunately experienced the services of a legal aid solicitor in the past and to be honest there is no comparison and they of course left me high and dry and with an unsuccessful case i received a conviction. This is what made me more used towards paying for legal representation. They are just lazy number crunchers who want a big turn around of clients whether they help them or not. Ashworth Motoring definitely provide the whole package and more.  

If you do wish to contact me please do not hesitate to ask Alison or Colette for my details. Once again thank you to all at Ashworths.”

Mr B, Birmingham.

Why we do what we do:

At Ashworth motoring law we are dedicated to keeping drivers on the road. We believe that no driver’s licence should be placed in jeopardy due to a lack of legal or technical knowledge. That’s why we’re always striving to deliver relevant, current content to keep you up to date with issues that could affect your freedom to drive.

We know the devastating impact that a disqualification from driving could have on a person’s life, career and family. It’s from that understanding that we fight to save the driving licences of motorists throughout the Country, to ensure that no person is disqualified where a valid defence or judicial discretion is available.

If you’ve been unlucky enough to be accused of drink driving or any other motoring offence and need to keep your driving licence, you can call one of our team of Expert Motoring Lawyers at any time on 0330 33 22 770 or email enquiries@ashworthmotoringlaw.co.uk. Our specialist driving offence solicitors will listen to the details of your case and let you know instantly if your licence could be saved.

 

Another new driver avoids licence revocation and keeps driving licence thanks to Ashworth Motoring Law

Licence saved!

If a motorist accumulates 6 penalty points within the first two years of driving, then their driving licence will be revoked by the DVLA under the New Driver Act. The motorist would then have to re-apply for their provisional driving licence and take both parts of their driving test, the theory and practical tests again. With the current delays that many learner drivers are experiencing just to be given a test date, this could spell up to three months off the road. The only way to prevent this from happening is to request a short-term ban in Court as punishment for the offence itself rather than penalty points.

Our latest new driver client was facing this same problem. He was charged with two separate offences and was going to accrue more than 6 penalty points on his driving licence. Having to re-take his practical and theory tests again would have had significant ramifications, including preventing him from being able to take up a crucial career opportunity.

That’s where we came in; we took very detailed evidence from him and began to build our case. Once we could see the basis for a strong argument in Court, we advised our client on the best evidence to support our case.

When the morning of Court came, we had built a strong case and were ready to fight our client’s corner.

A preliminary discussion with the Prosecutor led to one of the charges against our client being dropped due to the defence evidence that had been gained in connection with the charge. This left only one matter for the Court to determine. Following a guilty plea, we made out our client’s case, and emphasised the disastrous consequences that the revocation of his driving licence would have.

We requested a short term disqualification as punishment for the offence itself.

After retiring to consider their verdict, the Magistrates returned to grant our request of a short-term disqualification from driving of just 14 days, and a fine of only £250 – avoiding the maximum fine of £5000.00. Our client was delighted with the result.

When asked what he liked the best about our business, he said:

“You explained everything very well, told me what I needed to do for Court, and supported me through it”.

He made the following comments about his case:

“It was a motoring accident. You negotiated with the Prosecutor and one charge was withdrawn. You made submissions for the other allegation, disqualified for just 14 days. Fined under £250. Without Alison’s help I would have struggled in Court”.

Many new drivers faced with the same situation could have simply given up, and might not have known about the strategies that we use to keep new drivers on the road. This client from Lancashire  is certainly very glad he called us.

New driver keeps driving licence and avoids 6 penalty points

Drink Driving – Not Guilty testimonial

There’s nothing we love more than reading the comments of satisfied clients who are grateful for the results that were achieved in their case.

Here’s another testimonial from one of Managing Director, Alison Ashworth’s clients who was delighted with the service he received:

Drink Driving Testimonial after not guilty verdict - Ashworth Motoring Law

Alison was my primary solicitor in a drink-driving case and, thanks to her diligence and tenacity, the case was thrown out of court due to a lack of evidence on the part of the Prosecution, together with a number of technical errors by the Crown Prosecution Service.

Allison’s attention to detail is meticulous and I would heartily recommend her to anyone in danger of losing their licence. 

Many thanks – Jon McBride

Another client keeps driving licence thanks to Ashworth Motoring Law – Speeding – 6 month Ban avoided!

Totting up too many penalty points on your driving licence is easy to do, but can be a very difficult situation to get out of. 12 penalty points on a driving licence can be disastrous, spelling a 6 months disqualification from driving.

Our latest client found himself in this situation but was able to keep his driving licence thanks to over a month of legal work on his case.

Mr White was represented by Ashworth Motoring Law Ltd, and was represented in Court by Expert Motoring Law Solicitor, Alison Ashworth.

We are proud and humbled by the testimonial which he has provided:

What our totting up client had to say when he kept his driving licence

Speeding – Ban avoided!

“I would definitely recommend Alison to anyone who has motoring offence issues, she built up a strong case which concluded in the avoidance of a ban on the totting up procedure.

My case was based on the fact that I was about to receive a 3 point penalty which would take me to the automatic 12 point totting up total and a potential 6 month loss of my licence.

Alison built up a strong case based on references from my employer, a customer and a family member and the effect a driving ban would have on all parties – her statement to the magistrates definitely persuaded them that a ban would be severely detrimental and I have therefore retained my licence.

Alison was very professional throughout and I am happy with the result.

When asked what he liked the most about our business, he said “personal service and great attention to detail”

S. White from Rossendale.
