Legal Fees

Private Client

The cost of defending your road traffic case will vary depending upon the complexity of the case. We operate throughout the whole of Scotland and have defended motoring prosecutions the length and breadth of the country.

Our fee structure is agreed in advance and typically will take the form of a fixed-fee arrangement. It should be noted that fees are not recoverable in Scotland.

We are happy to offer payment plans to spread the cost of your legal fees.
