Have you been accused of a crime or are you being investigated by the Police or a Regulatory Authority?

Such matters include road traffic allegations such as exceeding the speed limit and careless driving both of which attract penalty points and can carry the risk of disqualification under the totting up procedure.

Shaun has regularly represented clients in various Magistrates’ Courts in Yorkshire, putting forward arguments of exceptional hardship to avoid a client being disqualified, and has also acted for a number of clients facing the very serious charge of causing death by dangerous driving. It is generally wise to seek advice from the outset of a matter.

Shaun has acted for businesses for example in respect of allegations of health and safety breaches and prosecutions by the Environment Agency.
