Road Traffic Offences

Read our road traffic defence cases

For law abiding citizens, it is more often than not, that the Road Traffic Legislation provides the introduction to the Criminal Justice System, and consequent encounters with the Police.

It is important that you obtain expert legal advice in a clear straightforward manner, at the earliest opportunity to deal with matters that may be regarded as simple in the first instance, whereas in fact are of a complex nature. The difference between disqualification and retaining your licence, can be the quality of legal representation. Penman Sedgwick Solicitors Watford have considerable expertise in the area of road traffic offences and  can make the difference.
