About David Barton
Solicitor 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 do all the work
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.
Because I am a specialist motorists’ lawyer, I am the only person in my firm who will deal with your case. I won’t pass it to an unqualified clerk or caseworker. I will advise you, prepare your case and attend Court with you until it is finished.
In complex cases there are occasions when I have to work with other specialists, for example accident reconstruction experts, or those qualified to analyse CCTV footage or speed detection equipment. When that is necessary I know who to work with.
You will find me to be clear, concise and accessible.
My ethos and values
My approach to my work is very simple. If I think you have an arguable case I will work tenaciously to achieve the best possible outcome.
Conversely, I won’t take your time or money pursuing arguments that are unrealistic.
I will tell you honestly and straightforwardly if I do not consider you have a defence or if I don’t think you can achieve the outcome you want.
I will provide you with an excellent service, bespoke and tailored exactly to your requirements.
I work across England and Wales
Although I am based in Kent I can and do represent clients in all courts in England and Wales.
