When i was charged with ‘Drunk in charge of a vehicle’ I didn’t know what to do or who to contact. Fortunately I’ve known one lawyer for a number of years so contacted him immediately. I explained my situation to which he replied immediately ‘ If there’s anyone that can help you its a personal friend Graham Walker’. Obviously at first i was dubious of such a high recommendation so quickly but it soon became apparent it was the right choice. Living on a small island on the west coast of Scotland isn’t practical at the best of times never mind trying to win a court case with your lawyer, the court and residence all in different places. Having said this Graham and his team weren’t phased by the logistics in the slightest and pressed on with the case straight away to a fantastic standard. One of Grahams juniors Simone travelled to the scene of the incident to photograph the scene,interview witnesses and appreciate the logistics of the offence. Simone couldn’t be faulted in any aspect of the investigation. She went through everything with a fine toothed comb and came across genuinely on my side of the argument and determined to get the best outcome possible.Knowledgeable and professional throughout, Simone is a real credit to Graham and Road traffic law as a company. Graham Walker drove 3 hours to get to court for the case not to go on trial and he didn’t bother in the slightest. Again, the main concern was my case and getting the best possible outcome. The second time he made the 3 hour drive the trial went ahead. It was at this time i witnessed him stand in front of the court room and ‘grab the bull by the horns’ so to speak. With his eloquent manner and calm demeanour it wasn’t long before the fiscal and witnesses were on there back feet wondering what to ask next. This was the theme from the outset and subsequently he won the trial with an impressive portfolio of questions and techniques. Graham,Simone and I’m sure the rest of there colleagues at Road Traffic Law are exceptionally well educated in the given department and couldn’t provide a better service. If anyone has been charged with a road traffic offence theres only one company that will give you the service and confidence to win your case and thats road traffic law. Impeccable service form start to finish.

Just wanted to say that these guys are the real deal. You can trust Mr Walker and his team to give you rock solid honest advice. They do not promise the world then fail to deliver. These guys walk the talk unlike some lawyers! I know Mr Walker is in court everyday and is difficult to get hold of but it is worth the effort. I have won 3 cases already with him representing me.

Keep your Car Insurance Premiums Down

Take the necessary steps to ensure you are not paying more than you need to

It’s that time of year again.

Spring is around the corner; meaning many people’s car insurance policies will shortly be up for renewal. Don’t settle with what you have; there are usually ways to keep more of your hard earned cash in your pocket and keep your car insurance premiums down!

Keep your car insurance premiums down

Keep your car insurance premiums down

I know it is time consuming; however companies are aware that we do not wish to spend our evenings in front of a computer researching where to get the best deals! Therefore your Insurance Renewal can often be laden with unnecessary costs and fees – Hastings Direct charge a 50 pound renewal fee: they are literally charging people extra money for staying loyal! The best way to keep your car insurance premiums down is to shop around:

Insurance companies know that many of us will just click the renewal button: Inertia stops many of us from changing bank accounts, or mobile phone contracts, and it is the same with insurance. Although it is the ‘easy thing to do’, it can cost you hundreds of pounds! Use comparison sites such as MoneySupermarket, and GoCompare. Aviva and Direct Line are two major players who you will not find on any price comparison sites so are worth a search. If you own more than one car, then a ‘multi-car discount’ can keep your car insurance premiums down and save you hundreds of pound’s.

As in all walks of life: the cheapest deal is seldom the best deal. Although you want to keep your car insurance premiums down you must think about the cover you actually need. We are repeatedly contacted by motorists facing a variety of Insurance related charges. Do you drive to work? Not all policies cover commuting and are only in place for ‘Social, Domestic and Pleasure’ use. If the use of your car is central to your employment then you will need a business insurance policy. It does not matter if you drive the length and breadth of the country, or are a part time delivery driver at the local takeaway: if you are using your car for business purposes and are stopped by the police without the correct insurance you will be facing a high end points endorsement.

Once you have found the correct insurance deal for your needs it is up to you to keep your car insurance premiums down! I wrote a blog yesterday on the True Cost of Speeding in Scotland: if convicted of a motoring offence, expect the cost of your car insurance premiums to soar. If you have been stopped by the police for driving without the correct insurance then ti is important you contact a lawyer as there could be a technical defense open to you. If you have been charged with any Road Traffic Law offence, contact Graham Walker at or call 0800 612 9597 for a FREE CASE CONSULTATION with a member of the Road Traffic Law team.
