Difficult mitigation

Home  /  Road Traffic  /  Difficult mitigation

I recently represented a client at Guildford Magistrates’ Court charged with speeding – 96 in a 70. He already had six penalty points on his licence and faced disqualification if he received penalty points in line with the sentencing guidelines. He narrowly avoided disqualification after I informed the court of the consequences to his professional life of losing his licence.
This type of mitigation is extremely difficult to advance by yourself. It is also not very wise to take a chance with your licence. On occasions like this, it really is worth instructing a good lawyer.
