This client instructed BB Law a few days before his trial.  We persuaded the prosecution to drop the s.172 charge (which carries a large fine and minimum of 6 points) in return for a guilty plea to the original minor red-light offence.  This was potentially a difficult task because the red-light offence was well over […]

“Hello, I’m Bobby Bell. I’m a specialist motoring lawyer – welcome to my website ….”

I’m a straight talking, no-nonsense, value for money motoring lawyer. I don’t deal with any other type of law.  I’m a genuine expert in road traffic law.
I work exceptionally hard for my clients and the results I achieve for them, which is why BB Law has a ‘5 star’ Google Review status and a 9.4 Trustpilot Rating

These are the types of motoring law cases I regularly deal with –

Speeding (particularly high speed offences) – Fail to provide driver information (s.172 Road Traffic Act) – 12 Points (Totting Up) & Exceptional Hardship – Fail to Stop / Fail to Report – Careless Driving – Drink Driving & Drug Driving – Causing Death or Serious Injury by Careless or Dangerous Driving – Using Mobile Phone Whilst Driving – Driving without Insurance

I don’t quote ambiguous success rates – I don’t take on cases unless I think I can be of real value to a client – I don’t make false promises – I don’t like disappointed clients – I don’t like losing!

I do offer a FREE Initial Advice Service which involves me spending time assessing the merits of your case so that I can let you know from the outset whether it’s likely that I can make a positive difference to your situation. If I don’t think I can help you then it’s in both our interests that I tell you that before you instruct me.

There are so many solicitors advertising themselves as specialist motoring lawyers, how do you decide who to trust with your case?
1) Check whether the specialist motoring law firm / solicitor you are talking to practices in any other area of the law, for example, general criminal law (assaults, theft, burglary etc). In my experience a solicitor who is a true motoring law specialist will usually practice exclusively in motoring law.

2) Visit an independent review site (such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot) to see what previous clients have said about the firm (or even better the individual motoring lawyer who will be representing you).

3) Make sure you speak directly to the motoring lawyer who is going to be dealing with your case. Ask the solicitor to personally review your case free of charge and ask them to provide you with some free initial advice including setting out your options and the percentage chances of achieving the desired outcome. If they won’t do this then how can you decide whether to instruct them?

4) Find out EXACTLY who is going to be dealing with your case. You need to know at the outset whether a specialist motoring lawyer will be dealing with every aspect of your case or whether a trainee solicitor, para-legal, clerk or other non-solicitor fee earner is going to be doing the majority of the work. At BB Law, you will ALWAYS deal with me personally. I do not have a secretary or an assistant and I do not intend to employ one. I know everything about every single one of my client’s cases and I like it like that.

5) Ask yourself – does the motoring lawyer you are thinking of instructing have sufficient enthusiasm to fight your corner? Will they be prepared to think outside the box?  Will they be realistic and pragmatic when the situation requires it? I treat every client’s case as if it were my own. Often the difference between getting a satisfactory result and an excellent result is the willingness to go that extra mile.

  • BB Law will always give you straight talking, practical advice, if we think you have no defence, then we will tell you this from the outset and we will advise you how best to go about damage limitation.

If you are accused of an offence alleged to have been committed in Scotland then you will need a Scottish road traffic expert to advise and represent you (English solicitors are not permitted to advise on cases outside of England and Wales). A number of my clients have instructed Richard Freeman (RoadTrafficExpert.com) to deal with cases they have in Scotland and have subsequently spoken very highly of the service he has provided to them.

What can BB Law Motoring Lawyers do for you?

TOTTING UP - if you are at risk of accumulating 12 or more points on your licence for offences committed within a 3 year period then you will be at serious risk of a minimum 6 month totting up ban. There a ways of avoiding a totting up ban, arguing exceptional hardship is one option but there may be others. Email the details of your situation to Bobby (bb@bb-law.co.uk) and he'll look at your case (free of charge) and work out your chances of avoiding a disqualification

FAIL TO IDENTIFY DRIVER (S.172) - this is one of the most common offences BB Law deal with. Often these fail to furnish driver details cases can be defended on a factual basis and occasionally we will find a technical defence. Even if it transpires that you have no defence then there may be other ways to avoid the dreaded 6 points and MS90 conviction code. For example, we might be able to persuade the prosecution to accept a guilty plea to the original offence (usually speeding), which very often results in 3 points and a much smaller fine (subject to the circumstances of the original offence, which prompted the police to send the requirement to provide driver information)

SPEEDING (HIGH EXCESS SPEED OFFENCES) - Bobby particularly likes dealing with high level excess speed offences. Clients often think there isn't much that can be done but you would be amazed at the range of options, which can be available in these types of cases. Bobby has dedicated a page of this website to speeding offences - have a look at the 'Offences and Services' menu and select 'speeding'

DRINK DRIVING - we aren't one of these motoring law firms that claim to be able to win any drink driving case. Such claims are ridiculous, there is no easy way to defend a drink driving charge. On average we find a viable defence in about 1 out of every 10 drink driving cases that we deal with. Have a look at the 'drink driving' page to see examples of the drink driving cases BB Law have successfully defended. Disqualifications imposed for drink driving offences range from 12 months up to 5 years or more, so If we can't find a defence in your case then it can be worthwhile putting maximum effort into preparing and presenting mitigation
