​Driving Offence Lawyers

If you are facing a motoring offence prosecution and are looking for specialist legal advice and representation, we can help you. Our barristers are experts in all motoring offences. This includes: drink and drug driving, speeding, dangerous and careless driving, using a mobile phone while driving or the avoidance of disqualification on penalty points.

Direct Access to us

​​Linenhall Chambers have a number of barristers who are qualified to accept instructions on a Public Access basis.

Each case is unique; once you have contacted us with brief details of your case we will be able to advise you if it is suitable to be undertaken on a direct basis.


Instructing a barrister direct will often cost less than using a solicitor. If the case is not suitable for ​Direct Access ​we can refer you to an appropriate solicitor who will be able to handle your matter.

​What our clients think

My barrister from Linenhall Chambers was a very straight talking lawyer, a real people's person with a wealth of experience which shines through. Very sincere and passionate about his profession and his clients and a very driven individual. I wish we had instructed him to represents us earlier. 5 star rating is understated for this Barrister.

I found them to be excellent, providing good advice and practical support. Thanks.
