Ashworth Motoring Law Info
Ashworth Motoring Law | Driving Offence Solicitors in Rossendale, Lancashire: Review
At 1to1Legal, we love specialists! And we can think of no greater case type where a specialist would be wanted than motoring offences. We've seen the searches, we've read the emails. You want someone who lives and breathes motoring law with all the know-how to "make it go away", as you keep putting it. Usually, the people that end up coming through here have already searched the internet for "X offence loopholes" ... but we'll get to that ...

They have in-depth specialised knowledge, and experience, of the technical, factual and mitigating defences relating to driving related charges and road traffic laws. They promise round the clock access to the solicitor dealing with your case, as well as regular updates alongside the general advice they provide during the legal process.
They list the benefits of their service to include competitive pricing, fixed fees where possible, a nationwide service, qualified solicitors, expert advice and case preparation. They also promise access to the country's best scientific experts as well as "the most infamous trial barristers".
Case types covered include:

Failure to Stop/Report an Accident
Driving with No Insurance
We've seen that most people immediately seek out the services of a solicitor when they have been caught driving whilst unfit through drugs or drink. Driving with an alcohol or drug level over the specified limit can result in automatic bans for years. So the cost of a solicitor will always seem worth it to avoid that. However, many people associate solicitors with high fees, and when faced with a £100 fine to make a penalty go away - they will often believe that using a solicitor will actually cost them more than simply admitting guilt and paying.
We won't debate the sad state of affairs of the motor offence legal system because that would take up a few pages of ranting and cursing. (Defendant has to prove they are innocent?!? Police don't need to prove you were even driving the vehicle?!?) Anyway ... as Ashworth's put it "being charged with a motoring offence can feel like a living nightmare". The whole system seems rigged and the police can badger you as much as they want, safe in the knowledge that courts are likely to convict even without proof.
Motoring law is all Ashworth Motoring Law do. The clue is in the name. Wherever you are in England or Wales, their motoring law solicitors are on hand 24/7 and believe that almost every motor prosecution can be successfully defended. They have 100% success rates in most offence categories including drink and drug driving cases involving the analysis of blood or urine. That means that every client of theirs that pleaded 'not guilty', has been found 'not guilty'.
Such is their expertise, that they are often called up to write for motoring publications, keeping the nation's drivers abreast of the issues which could affect their driving licence. They have also commented on the BBC, Channel 5 and other media outlets programs. See the video embedded above or their YouTube channel for more information.
One of our favourite quotes from the Ashworth website, is: "Our specialist motoring law solicitors continue to be at the forefront of innovating unique and successful driving defences which many other firms remain unaware of to this day." That is an incredibly bold statement. But certainly stays away from the terminology that many people facing offence charges use - i.e. 'loopholes'. That word is mentioned only once on their site as far as we could see, and it was applied more of an 'a.k.a.' to the actual term - a technical defence. Certainly, when a case is thrown out because something was not done correctly, it can feel like a loophole was found. But considering that the driving offence system is quite rigged anyway - don't feel too bad about it. Just be sure and drive responsibly from then on, as you may not get the same bit of luck twice!
The founder of the firm, Alison Ashworth, feels the same way as us, stating: "I am always surprised by the level of injustice that I witness day in day out where cases are brought before the Court despite serious procedural irregularities and issues concerning the reliability of the evidence that the prosecution attempt to rely on."
The likelyhood of Legal Aid being available for most case types is ridiculously small. For motoring cases, it is even less. There is no such thing as no win, no fee for cases like this either. So you will be paying for your legal advice on this one with nearly every firm out there. Ashworth Motoring Law apparently promise fixed fees on every case, no matter how complex. Considering their promise of the best scientific experts and the best court barristers - that's an interesting promise to make.
We have spoken to many motoring solicitors, and some have come back with fee quotes in the region of £4000 for a simple £100 fine for doing 36mph in a 30mph zone. If I were a famous footballer, I'd expect to be ripped off that amount. So the prospect of a fixed fee arranged in advance with payment plans offered - certainly appeals to us, and is just one of the positive reasons we are happy to bring Ashworth Motoring Law to you.
The domain name for this firm is quite long and currently does not use the www. prefix. If you try going to www.ashworthmotoringlaw.co.uk you will be redirected to the non-www version though. www.ashworthmotoringlaw.com does not load for us, and it is possible that you may forget the firm's name and try things relating to Ashworths Solicitors or simply AshworthLaw. So we recommend bookmarking the site once you're on it to save messing about later.
General Notes: Usually if Legal Aid is possible we've mentioned it above, but you can always ask. We haven't looked in depth at their recruitment program so are unaware of any job vacancies available. For a career with Ashworth Motoring Law it's best to visit the website (www.ashworthmotoringlaw.co.uk), check opening hours, and find the correct phone/email contact details. Simply emailing a CV to reception looks lazy. Each law firm's Law Society and/or SRA number should be on their site, usually at the bottom of each page.
