Motoring Offences

Our Fees

How much will it cost?

We appreciate clients like to keep costs under control and know from the start how much their case will cost. For this reason, we try where possible to offer representation for a fixed fee. If it is not possible to agree a fixed fee, then we can discuss and explain this at our first meeting.

These are an example of our fixed fees for representation at Lincolnshire Courts. Of course, we have to charge more for travel but find this is beneficial to you, the client, to ensure continuity of service.

(please note VAT charged at 20%)
