Motorist’s Lawyer with 40 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 40 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.
Mr Barton doesn’t, like other firms practicing within this area of law (drink drive), promise to ‘get you off’. What he does offer is a professional, thoughtful, and highly professional advocacy service, where you can be confident that your position will be effectively represented and that he will advise you accurately and professionally. Where there are opportunities for defence, he has the experience, knowledge, and expertise to identify these for you and provide you the right advice.
If you want an honest, ethical, and highly competent professional, I would recommend.

Where do I start?
Faced with what I perceived was a difficult period of my life, I’d finally arrived at a place which was totally out of my control and would hang over my like a dark cloud for the best part of a year.
At my wits end, through google I found David Barton (Solicitor Advocate). I called him and told him of the issue and likely outcome of what it was that I had to deal with.
I was fearful of what I would have to testify in court, and was reassured that my fears were unfounded, and that I could tell my story in truth without fear.
There were some hitches with the hearing dates which meant that David couldn’t appear personally with me in court in the first instance. However he was able to arrange to do so via video link at short notice. At this point the hearing was adjourned to a later date.
After many phone calls to discuss my case further, through his many contacts he appointed a Barrister to appear in court with me on the due date. The Barrister had been fully briefed on my case and was thorough in his approach and advice as to the way in which I was to be dealt with.
Subsequently, my court appearance had a completely successful outcome. I am no longer in that dark place.
Rest assured David Barton knows his stuff
David was very professional and presented my ‘special circumstances’ defence to the court extremely skillfully, with the result exactly as David had indicated he hoped for. A service worth every penny!
I’ve shopped around for motoring solicitors and David Barton is by far the best. Can’t recommend him highly enough.
Can’t thank David enough, he is very knowledgeable and was extremely helpful from start to finish. Ended up getting my case dropped so couldn’t have asked for more. Would definitely recommend!
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
I thought I’d written a review about David as I had hired David a few years Ago and was facing a ban for doing 104 mph on a motorway… it was an expensive exercise but he got the case completely dropped after 2 hearings – amazing. I’ve just asked for some advice about congestion and low emission charge and couldn’t find my original review. even if he cant help this time I will always go back to him, hopefully I won’t have to but you never know what’s around the corner……..
Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness, Value
David was recommended to us as the best motoring solicitor there is. He helped us through a very stressful time with our son and we couldn’t have asked for more. We would highly recommend him.
