With Road Law Barristers, you have direct access to your dedicated barrister throughout your case. We can therefore offer our services at very reasonable rates, because you do not have to pay for a solicitor, a paralegal or a solicitor’s secretary. Many cases can be resolved during the first court appearance, minimising the cost to you. Moreover, our fees are fixed; no hourly rates, no surprises.

The fees for court appearances are for attendance at courts in the north of England. We do travel to courts further afield but there will be a charge for reasonable travel expenses. Fees for appeals and Crown Court work vary depending on the type of case and the length and number of hearings involved. We are happy to discuss Crown Court fees with you once we know some details about your particular case.
* After your initial free consultation, you can instruct a Road Law Barrister to analyse your case papers and provide detailed advice, either during a face-to-face conference at our premises or over the telephone, for a one-off fee of £175 + VAT. If you later decide to instruct your barrister, this fee will be deducted from your bill.
**An adjourned trial takes place when it is not possible for your trial to go ahead on the date which it was listed or if the trial does not conclude in one day.
