If you’ve been charged with a traffic offence such as drink or drug driving, speeding or driving on a suspended licence, don’t leave the results to chance. Statistics indicate that most traffic cases where the defendant engaged the services of a lawyer result in lowered penalties, including overturning of a charge.
When it comes to finding traffic lawyers in Frankston, Nardi Lawyers are the top choice. With hundreds of successful cases and satisfied clients, we have well and truly proven ourselves as an industry-leading law firm in the area of traffic offences.
While you may not be thinking that a traffic offence is a serious issue, it can result in the suspension or loss of your licence for an extended period of time. This is more than just a minor inconvenience for those who rely on their car for work, as they may be fired from their job if they are unable to drive.
When you engage Nardi Lawyers, we are committed to achieving the best possible outcome for you in your case. We will always use character references and surrounding circumstances to show your prior behaviour and the environment when the offence occurred. We carefully examine the circumstances and evidence to determine if any mistakes were made when collection occurred, which could allow the evidence to be ruled inadmissible.
Drink driving carries not only minimum mandatory loss of licence (can be extended at discretion of the Magistrate), but also strict conditions on relicencing, such as completing a drink driving course, applying to VicRoads for relicencing and installing an alcohol interlocker device. See our table below for minimum licence cancellation period.
