Motorist’s Lawyer with 36 years experience
I qualified as a solicitor in 1982 and have represented drivers involved in road traffic prosecutions all my working life. In fact the very day I qualified I represented a motorist who had been summoned for driving without insurance.
In the last 36 years as a motorists’ solicitor I have represented hundreds of clients in connection with all types of driving offences.
I am a Solicitor Advocate which means I can help and represent you in Magistrates’ Courts and Crown Courts. Not all solicitors can do this.
Choosing a solicitor to represent you through your motoring prosecution is difficult.
Most people don’t know what to look for in a solicitor or what they can expect from them.
I want my clients to feel confident that they are making the right choice in choosing me. That means that at all times they are clear about what’s going to happen, what I will do, what I will need from them and what the costs will be.
My aim is to be the expert advocate you trust.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
I was recommended to David to help us with a motoring problem, from the very start he was thorough and put us at ease with the way he explained the process and the way he dealt with the problem to a satisfactory conclusion, I would have no hesitation in recommending his services.
Amazing news! Thank you so much David for all the support during this stressful period.
We will be keeping your contact details safe for any future issues.
We have also recommended you to our colleague who was stopped for similar offence a couple of weeks ago.
We have been singing your praises to all our colleagues, friends and family. You have been very accessible to contact and have been very helpful and professional.
Thank you again!
Thanks for the confirmation David and your assistance in this matter, I am very pleased with the outcome.
All the best.
Many thanks for your relentless efforts, thoughts and help in resolving this whole matter to its conclusion.
I am very grateful.
Wish you only the best.
I was in desperate need of a motor lawyer to represent me regarding a totting up disqualification. I came across David Barton’s website and made contact. After the first phone call David Barton’s fantastic knowledge of motor law made me feel very calm about the situation. I pressed ahead with hiring his company and he did not disappoint. We pleaded exceptional hardship and I got off with just three points, no fine and no disqualification. It was the best decision I could have made choosing him.
Having spoken with many other firms, we chose David Barton. Highly skilled and extremely knowledgeable, David provided unrivalled expertise, in an honest and refreshingly approachable manner. He dealt with the case from day one, providing clear and concise advice, followed it through with his superb advocacy skills in court, to a brilliant acquittal at the finish. Would very highly recommend.
I didn’t write to you yesterday because, when we arrived home, I crashed out! I think it must have been the relief from tension!
But today, I feel great; and that is all due to you.
Congratulations to you, on the most successful outcome we could possibly have expected. I’m sure you will recollect that, when you first explained the provision to me, you said that the outcome you achieved yesterday would be the “dream ticket”; it certainly was that! Very well done.
We (I include Leila, because you saw her reaction to the result!) are enormously grateful to you, for your sound advice, for the way you presented your submission; for your courtesy and help, and friendship, at all times; and, of course, for the outcome – which could not have been better.
So, for everything you have done and achieved on my behalf, a huge
This was a case in which my client had been charged with causing death by careless driving. Many people believe that they must instruct a barrister for such cases but this is not the case. I represented my client in court against a Barrister for the prosecution.
I consider myself very lucky to have appointed David Barton.Following a tragic accident resulting in a fatality I had a lot emotionally to deal with. It was and to this day remains deeply upsetting.
Then the CPS decided to prosecute and with no experience of what to expect or even the court process, I obviously needed legal help. After reading online reviews, a meeting with David was arranged very quickly, and he calmly talked me through the basics. From this first meeting I had the confidence that whatever the outcome, David would be the best person to represent me in court.
It was a long and involved process in getting to trial, and David with the help of an accident reconstruction specialist Wayman Limited made sure I was in the best possible position to face the court. The trial was daunting. Whilst I have the utmost respect for the invaluable help, support and understanding given prior to trial, I feel David’s swan song was how he conducted himself in court in my defence. It was a long two-day trail and, I feel due to David’s representation I was thankfully found not guilty.
There are no winners in a case like this, and I know that without David’s help the outcome could have been very different. So, thank you David for your services. You helped and supported me in my time of need and this is something that I will always appreciate considering such tragic circumstances.
