Lawtons were instructed to deal with a case where things had not gone to plan at the Magistrates Court. Our client, an equity partner and solicitor at top city law firm had been caught speeding doing 82 on the M1 when there was a temporary 50mph speed limit.
He was originally unrepresented when he appeared before the Magistrates Court, where he attended and was given a fine but also disqualified from driving for 40 days. The consequences of this disqualification were particularly bad for our client and his family of 4 children, all of whom were adversely affected by the disqualification. Realising that he needed expert assistance, he immediately instructed Lawtons to deal with the Appeal to Luton Crown Court.
From our specialist Crown Court team, Alex Britton acted for our client at Luton Crown Court where he was successful in his appeal against his driving disqualification. At the Hearing on 17th May, Alex was able to persuade the Court that the Sentence imposed was excessive, the Appeal was allowed and the disqualification was reduced to 6 penalty points.
