“If I am honest, without their assistance I would have been looking at a worse outcome”

I engaged Millars for an up and coming case.

Paul, Carl and Keith are a great team – they were 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.

“If I am honest, without their assistance I would have been looking at a worse outcome”

I engaged Millars for an up and coming case.

Paul, Carl and Keith are a great team – they were 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 do.

Calls in to Millars were responded to quickly and if I am honest without their 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.

“Absoulte best outcome I could have hoped for”

The initial conversation I had with Carl really calmed my fears. He explained how these cases work and the potential outcomes. He was very attentive and understanding. I really had little expectation going into this as 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.

“Would highly recommend him to anyone in a similar situation”

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 Millars 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 he called me up very promptly for a quick chat, where he outlined a bit of his background and what I could face in terms 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 utmost 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, Carl’s 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.

I contacted Paul Turner who was completely honest and frank with me from the beginning. The solicitor I was provided with on the day was excellent. She spent the whole day with me and truly did her research to ensure I got the best possible result. I would strongly recommend anyone to use them in any driving circumstances, and if you think you can’t afford it, I would advise that you try your hardest. Considering the service they provided I believe I got a discount even though I paid their standard price. Truly worth it. It genuinely was a difference between life as I know it and life crumbling before my eyes. Thank you guys.

Success – Plea and Mitigation

Our client was charged with an offence of driving with excess alcohol, he had a reading in breath of 95mg. The Sentencing Guidelines suggested that the Defendant should be sentenced to a Community Order with a period of disqualification of between 23 to 28 months.

Outcome – After mitigation was advanced, the Defendant was sentenced to a financial penalty and a period of disqualification of 12 months. The Defendant was also offered the Drink Drivers Rehabilitation Course, which would reduce his period of disqualification to 9 months.

This is the minimum sentence that can be imposed by the Magistrates.

Successful Outcome – Plea and Mitigation

Our client, MT, was charged with an offence of driving with excess alcohol, namely 62mg of alcohol in breath, and was bailed to appear before Leeds Magistrates Court.

The Sentencing Guidelines suggested a sentence of a financial penalty and period of disqualification of between 17 to 22 months. Following mitigation, the client was sentenced to a financial penalty and a period of disqualification of 12 months. The Defendant was offered the Drink Drivers Rehabilitation Course which would reduce his period of disqualification to 9 months.

The sentence imposed was the absolute minimum for an offence of driving with excess alcohol.

Success – drink driving

Our client, Mr P, was charged with an offence of driving with excess alcohol. Whilst taking instructions, one of our drink drive specialist experts at Millars Solicitors noted that there was a disparity between the 2 evidential breath samples provided at the Police Station.

The client was advised to enter a not guilty plea.

At Court, representations were made to the Crown Prosecutor in relation to the disparity to the readings. The Prosecutor recognised the error that had been made by the Police Officer at the Police Station. The Crown withdrew proceedings before the Court.

A not guilty verdict was confirmed, and the Court awarded the client a Defendants Costs Order.

The initial advice was crucial in deciding how to prepare for my court case, all the possible sentences and how best to go about preparing for my case were explained to me. It gave me peace of mind knowing that they had dealt with this scenario many times before.

I would just like to thank Carl for his support and professionalism when representing me before the magistrates for speeding charges. It has been such an emotional period for me, from receiving the initial speeding notices through to the court date Carl has been exceptional.

I received 3 speeding tickets within a 5 week period, was suspended from work, reinstated and at risk of losing my job due to one offence of 92 miles an hour. Carl represented me and advised the court of my circumstances and we pleaded exceptional hardship.

I have managed to keep my license and cannot thank him enough. Would thoroughly recommend Carl to anybody who finds themselves in similar circumstances.

Success – speeding

The Defendant instructed Millars Solicitors very late in the day, namely a day before the hearing.

Given that the prosecution papers were only received on the day of the trial, we had to peruse the documents to find any technical errors.

When consideration was given to the prosecution papers, it was noted that there was an administrative error and that the proceedings against the client had been served out of time.

Given the circumstances, the proceedings were dismissed, and the Court awarded the client a Defendants Costs Order.

Carl was professional, honest, thorough and diligent in handling my case. From our first conversation he was approachable, very knowledgeable and always gave me time if I had questions.

When I initially contacted Carl regarding my situation he was simply fantastic. Very reassuring and was able to give me a recommendation based on the conversation we had on the phone, I always felt like Carl had my best interests in mind even at this point when I was just enquiring.

I always felt I could call, email Carl at any time and he would give me time. Communication was excellent throughout, updates were great and never waiting for days for a reply.

I would highly recommend Carl and would like to thank him for helping to get such a fantastic outcome for my case.

3 Penalty Points Awarded, £280 fine plus court costs, total of £345. Did not receive a driving ban from totting up to 12 points.

Drunk in charge of a motor vehicle – Another success

Our client, ST, was charged with being drunk in charge of a motor vehicle. She was located by two Police Officers who found her sat in her motor vehicle. She had a very high reading of alcohol in her system. Her defence was that there was no reasonable likelihood of her driving her motor vehicle whilst she remained over the legal limit. We thoroughly prepared our client for Trial and went through the type of questions that she may be asked by the Prosecutor (cross-examination).

Miss ST explained that she received some bad news about her ex-partner and that she was a recovering alcoholic. She explained that she was distressed and did begin drinking again but she certainly would not have driven her car. The CPS had made a Bad Character Application because she did have a previous conviction for drink driving. However, Miss ST turned this fact around and said that she would certainly have not have driven her car especially as she knew the consequences for driving with excess alcohol. She explained that she would not risk losing her ability to drive and the consequence of that would be that she would lose her job and not be able to pay her mortgage.

The legal burden of proof is that once this defence is raised of no likelihood of driving whilst over the legal limit, one must persuade the Court on the balance of probabilities that there was no likelihood of driving whilst you remain over the legal limit. The Court were persuaded and our client was acquitted and granted a Defendant’s Costs Order.

I was extremely satisfied with the advice I was given. I had never been in court previously and did not know what to expect. Carl guided me through the process, advising and gathering the relevant information for my case. I felt confident with Carl processing my case as he digested my information and talked to me about all the possible outcomes. He was clear and concise. I couldn’t have wished for a better outcome, which was totally down to Carl’s summation to the court. I would absolutely recommend Millars Solicitors to a friend or family member should they need such a service in the future. I was particularly pleased with Carl who was always available from the moment I made contact.y.

I would absolutely recommend Millars Solicitors to anyone needing advice relating to driving offences. 

When I was told that I would have to appear at the magistrate’s court for the charge of drunk in charge of a motor vehicle I was unsure whether I needed legal representation but after speaking to Millars I understood that it would be a risk going it alone.

Time was taken to understand the circumstances prior to the court date and then Carl had an in-depth chat with myself on the day.

The CPS attempted to change the charge on the day of the hearing. Carl handled it all and was able to mitigate this for me. Had I been on my own I wouldn’t have known what to do, what to plead and what the chances of defending it would be.

All I would say is do not hesitate to speak to Millars solicitors and instruct them for your defence. Do not risk your driving licence.

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 were 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.

Failing to provide a specimen of breath for analysis – Success

Our client, NH, was charged with failing to provide a specimen of breath for analysis. She had provided a roadside breath test which was substantially over the legal limit of 35mg in 100ml of breath.

At Millars Solicitors we made a Section 8 Application for further disclosure. The CPS had not provided DVD evidence from the breath test room and the Custody Suite. They also failed to provide the Custody Record. Despite numerous reminders to the Crown Prosecution Service, they failed to comply with their duties of disclosure and we managed to persuade the Crown to discontinue proceedings against our client where upon she was also granted a Defendant’s Costs Order and received partial reimbursement of her fees.

Failing to provide a specimen of breath for analysis – Another success.

Our client, Mr DS, was charged with failing to provide a specimen of breath for analysis.

He advanced a panic attack as a reasonable excuse for not providing. As a matter of law, once this defence is raised, the Crown must disprove the defence raised beyond any reasonable doubt. In other words, the defence only needs to establish that it was POSSIBLE that the Defendant was unable to provide a specimen of breath due to having a panic attack. The Crown Prosecution Service could not prove their case beyond any reasonable doubt as the Court accepted that the reason submitted was possible. We instructed an independent Psychiatric Expert who supported the Defendants assertion. Again, a Defendant’s Costs Order was granted in the circumstances which allowed a partial reimbursement of the Defendants fee paid.

Carl and team are fantastic to deal with. Handled my case with skill, professionalism and respect. I did not feel judged. On the day of the first plea hearing, Carl made me feel at ease by explaining clearly the court process. As soon as any new information was available I was informed straight away.

Thanks to Joseph, he relayed my case very eloquently and put forward all pertinent and supporting points very effectively.

Driving with excess alcohol - Defendant Acquitted

Our client, Mrs RT, was initially charged with driving with excess alcohol.

We persuaded the Crown Prosecution Service that there was no evidence of her driving the vehicle and the charge was changed to being drunk in charge of a motor vehicle.

The Defendant accepted that she was drunk in charge of a motor vehicle. The Court did have a discretion to disqualify her but instead imposed 10 penalty points. Unfortunately, the Defendant already had 3 penalty points on her driving licence and therefore faced a disqualification for a minimum period of 6 months under the ‘totting up’ provisions. Again, we managed to persuade the Court not to disqualify her as it would cause the Defendant and other Exceptional Hardship.

Based upon my experience I would have no doubts about recommending Millars Solicitors. The defence process was handled efficiently and effectively by Millars. The court was fair but challenging hence the need for good representation.

Early return of Licence Success Stories 

 

Success Story – Section 42 Application for Early Removal of Disqualification

We represented Dr L D on 19th July 2018 in respect of an application for early removal of disqualification.

Dr L D had two convictions for drink driving and she was disqualified from driving for a period of 45 months.  She was entitled to make the application, as a right, at the 2 year anniversary of the disqualification.  She accepted that she did have historical alcohol related issues.  We put together a solid application demonstrating various blood tests that she had undertaken following on from her disqualification.  We made reference to the fact the she had attended Alcoholics Anonymous groups and had taken various undertakings with her regulatory body.  The Judge was impressed by her conduct subsequent to the disqualification and was persuaded to allow the application.

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

Calls in to Millars were responded to quickly and if I am honest without their 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.
