Traffic Law

When the unexpected happens, only the best will do

Helping you obtain the best result

The loss of a driver's licence can be much more than an inconvenience; it can have an impact on your employment, your social life, your relationship and your assets. Our Traffic Lawyers have extensive experience representing people charged with all types of offences such as speeding, drink driving, dangerous driving and other serious traffic offences. 

Our Traffic Lawyers work from our head office in Sydney and several other convenient locations in NSW, servicing Courts throughout the Sydney Metro, Parramatta and Greater Western Sydney, Sutherland Shire, Wollongong and beyond. 

Our assessment of your case will help you determine whether to plead guilty or challenge the charge. If the former, we will appear before the Court and make careful submissions on penalty and often, argue that a conviction should not be recorded. If you wish to challenge the allegations, then you will be expertly defended by us, applying our extensive knowledge of the law and years of practical experience to give you the best chance of winning your case. We can help you obtain the best result.

what we can help you with

We cover a range of services

Drink Driving

Drink Driving Offences are considered "serious offences" in New South Wales with convictions attracting heavy fines, long periods of licence disqualification and possibly a gaol sentence. New South Wales has some of the toughest drink driving laws in the country. Further, upon conviction, there are mandatory licence disqualification periods that apply.

Drug Driving

There are various offences that fall under the category of "Drug Driving", with some considered more serious than others. With more state funding being invested in policing drug driving, more and more drivers are finding themselves unexpectedly charged with offences that immediately place their licence in jeopardy. 
When charged with an offence that falls within this category it is important to obtain legal advice to understand the penalties and disqualification periods that may apply.

Licence Appeals and Habitual Offender Declarations

Most drivers require their licence for one important activity or another. Whether it is for the purposes of employment, education or family commitments, losing the ability to drive can impact greatly on a person's ability to maintain daily commitments.

Many traffic offences attract suspension periods and often, drivers are unaware that upon payment of a fine they will be facing a period of suspension. Fortunately, some suspensions can be appealed, but it is important to act quickly once a notice of suspension is received.

For drivers who find themselves coming before a Court multiple times for major traffic offences, additional sanctions, such as Habitual Offender Declarations, can be imposed. We can help you navigate through this complex area of traffic law and, where permitted, help you maintain your privilege to drive or assist you in getting back on the road sooner.

Menacing and Predatory Driving

Menacing and predatory driving offences generally involve using a motor vehicle to cause another person to fear some harm. They are serious driving offences, with predatory driving being one of the most serious driving offences that can be committed.

Negligent, Reckless & Dangerous Driving

There are several driving offences that relate to the manner in which a vehicle is being driven. Some of the offences are directed at the manner of driving itself. Other, more serious offences, take into account the manner of driving and actual consequences that follow; such as injury to another.

Speeding Offences NSW

Speeding offences make up the majority of traffic infringements in NSW and as is well known, raise a large amount of state revenue. Every speeding offence attracts demerit points and some offences attract suspension periods. We can advise you on the prospects of defending a speeding fine or, if it is considered better to pay the fine, the effects of doing so and what else is required if a suspension period is likely.

Unlicensed Driving

There are various offences that fall within the broad category of "Unlicensed Driving". The usual offences are the result of someone driving after the Court, RMS or the Police have imposed either a disqualification period on them or suspended their licence. It is also an offence to drive without having obtained a licence in the first place.

The sanctions for driving whilst disqualified, suspended or cancelled are quite severe and many are surprised when advised that terms of imprisonment may apply.

Happy Customers

Thank you for representing my daughter. I would just like to take this opportunity to say that, under very difficult circumstances, the result was excellent. It was quite evident that you would need to be very skilful in your delivery of the case to get a good result from this belligerent Judge. 

I felt that you read the Judge perfectly and handled the case with confidence & considerable finesse. I would highly recommend your services to anyone who needs legal representation.

Being charged with a traffic offence can be a daunting experience for most. Most clients come to our firm with the prospect of losing their licence or facing a criminal conviction and possibly imprisonment. We thoroughly prepare for every one of our cases; the particular facts and circumstances unique to each are analysed to first determine the strengths of a defence to the charge and where this is not possible, careful and meticulous submissions are made to the Court on sentence. It is only when this approach is taken to traffic matters that a client can be assured that we have done all we can to obtain the best result."
