If you choose to deal with your case in person, Motor Lawyers recommends the Self Representation Service. This covers everything that you need to present your case confidently and successfully to the Magistrates. Given the appropriate assistance and advice, most clients are perfectly capable of presenting their own case and this can also increase the sympathy factor. However, it is a lot easier if you have some understanding of how the procedure works, guidance on the best way to deal with a Court appearance, know what to say and just as importantly, what not to say.
Motor Lawyers will go through the Court process with you and prepare a complete script/crib sheet for you to use at Court. This is a detailed and comprehensive document that is unique to your case. We will need to discuss the case fully with you (this will take about an hour) and Motor Lawyers will also deal with any concerns you have. Provide guidance on the hearing itself and how to present your case. Once we have covered all the issues will we prepare the crib sheet which will then be sent to you as a Word or Adobe document. We will clarify any other steps you need to take to improve your prospects in Court. Clients who have used this service normally not only get a successful result, but are often complimented by the Court staff/Magistrates for taking the trouble to prepare the case properly.
