The initial conversation I had with Carl really calmed my fears. He explained how these cases work and what the potential outcomes. He was very attentive and understanding. I really had little expectation going into this and I had spoken with another solicitor and they were very negative.

I found Carl to be positive and put a positive spin on this silly situation I had gotten myself into. They handled my case professionally and with care. If anyone I knew ever got into this situation, I would recommend Millars Solicitors. The result I got was the absolute best outcome I could have hoped for.

I engaged Millars for an up and coming case.

Paul, Carl and Keith are a great team and very honest and forthright on the expectations and outcomes that I should accept and basically put me in the correct frame of mind what to expect.

Paul was great on communication and the reality of my situation and Keith Jones on the day – apart from being a very personable lawyer – did not let the court take any liberties in what they could and could not to.

Calls in to Millars where responded to quickly and if I am honest without there assistance I would have been looking at a worse outcome.

As I was told ‘A person that goes into court and represents himself has a fool of a client’ and that is why I would always and highly recommend Paul, Carl and Keith to anyone that finds themselves in a similar situation. I can’t thank them enough.

A few weeks ago I made the stupid decision to move and drive my car under the influence of alcohol. Not knowing what to do, I was passed on the number for Carl of Carl miller solicitors. The friend (of which I greatly valued his opinion) had actually never met Carl, yet knew he was the best man for the job.
So I left Carl a message and called me up very promptly for a quick chat, where he outlined abit of his background and what I could face in term of punishment from the courts.
I decided to use Carl and met at a location quite convenient for me. He told me the maximum punishment I could receive was a 3 year ban and a lengthy community Order. But he said he will try his upmost to reduce them. But advised caution, what with such a high reeding.
Carl then outlined a plan that would the best approach and specific for my circumstances. Before court he told me the lees magistrate may not let him speak or argue anything at all. Luckily for me, Carls respect in his field, granted that time to speak.
I left the court with a 2 year driving ban and a fine and I was also offered an awareness course which will reduce my ban to 18months.
Carl was very professional and I was extremely pleased with his efforts and the end result. Would highly recommend him to anyone in a similar situation.

Carl and Paul was very professional throughout and guided me through the whole process, they updated me immediately on any new findings and I felt if i needed, i could pick up the phone for advice at any time. I was very surprised with the outcome of the case and I simply couldn’t have wished for a better result! The charges against me, for Failure to provide a breath sample was dropped, this was due to a technicality and Carl had put this to the CPS. Without Carl and Paul’s help, the outcome of my case would have been very different. I can’t thank them enough for helping me and I would highly recommend them if ever in need.

THE BEST POSSIBLE CHANCE OF SUCCESS

Don’t leave your licence or freedom to chance. We specialise in giving you the best possible chance of success, whether that be saving your licence or dramatically reducing your sentence. We fight for you.

Your driving licence is probably the most important document you have that you take for granted every day. That is until it is taken away from you through drink driving.

It is a complex and in-depth area of law and one that requires specialist advice.

In March 2015, the Government introduced two new ways to be prosecuted for drug driving offences. Driving whilst unfit through drink and drugs; Driving with excess (over the specified limit) drugs.

Not all drug driving cases will be regarding illegal drugs, a vast amount will include people on prescription drugs.

Not providing a specimen or it not being one that can be properly tested can result in a prosecution. The law has made it clear that it will not allow drink driving cases to be frustrated on the basis that someone has not given an evidential sample.

There may be a reasonable excuse for failing to provide a specimen for analysis meaning a charge will not always lead to a conviction.

Speeding offences are the most common form of road traffic offence, with over 40,000 people a year summoned to court.

If you have been caught speeding the minimum sentence you can expect is £100 fine and 3 penalty points on your licence, in more serious cases you can be disqualified altogether.

If you have accumulated 12 or more points on your licence over the period of 3 years, you risk being banned from driving for a period of 12 months or more.

This not only has an adverse effect on your life but can, once the ban is over, make it impossible to secure car insurance.

Being Drunk In charge of a motor vehicle.

In 1925, it became a driving offence to be in charge of a motor propelled vehicle whilst under the influence of alcohol.

A motorist can unintentionally end up in this position for a number of reasons

Careless driving, also known as driving without due care and attention, means that the standard of driving is below the standard expected by a competent and careful driver.

Dangerous driving is any driving that is deemed to be far below the standard expected by a competent and careful driver.

It is possible after having had a ban to ask for your licence to be re-instated earlier to the court that disqualified you.

We help numerous clients prove that they should be allowed their driving licence reinstated and navigate the pitfalls of dealing with CPS who almost certainly will oppose any application.

Any driver, regardless of fault, involved in a road traffic accident that has caused injury or damage has a duty to stop and remain at the scene, and to provide information.

Even if you stop at the accident but still do not provide details when asked, can be deemed to be failing to stop.

Driving whilst disqualified (DVLA code BA10) is a serious offence. If stopped you won’t get a telling off and dropped back home by a friendly Bobby. You’ll be arrested, placed in a cell and receive a summons to appear in court.

We can advise you of the laws and penalties of driving without a licence and the action you need to take.
