What is the best way for me to deal with my drink driving matter?
Whether this has never happened to you before, or unfortunately you find yourself in this difficult situation again, you need to act quickly. You need to take this seriously otherwise you are going to end up in a world of hurt.
It’s normal to feel worried or embarrassed, but putting your head in the sand will not save you. You need someone who will provide you with the legal guidance and support you need so that you can move through this predicament as unscathed as possible.
Having an experienced lawyer who can take the reins and control the process for you is an investment in your future. The Court will treat every Drink Driving case as unique and you need someone who knows the right things to say to achieve the best possible outcome for you.
Do not gamble on ‘winging it’ as once your penalty for your Drink Driving charge has been given by the Magistrate it is almost impossible for you to change it, even if it affects your employment or your personal life.
Imagine this, you have done some research with the help of Google and you find out that you can have a duty lawyer help you out for free at Court and that you have decided to ask the Court for a work licence. You turn up to Court at 9am like you were told to feeling nervous about the outcome (particularly as this is the first time that you have ever stepped into a Courtroom!) You are then told by the duty lawyer that you were counting on helping you out that they do not help with Drink Driving matters and that if you want a work licence, you have to adjourn your case to another day. Given you have already taken a day off work to come to Court (and are not keen to take another!) you decide to represent yourself and get it over and done with. At 11.30am you finally get out of Court after getting a significant fine and a higher than you expected licence suspension.
Now picture this, you attend at Shuttleworth Legal for legal advice before Court. The entire process is explained to you so that you now understand completely what is going to happen and what kind of outcome to expect. You attend Court with the confidence that your experienced lawyer is going to do all the talking to the Magistrate for you. You are in and out within 30 mins and you receive a penalty from the Court in line with what you were expecting.
