Quentin wins driving disqualification Appeal to keep City Solicitor on the road


Mr RS is a Litigation Partner in a well know firm of City Solicitors. He had represented himself before the Magistrates Court in respect of two matters of speeding and had been disqualified from driving. RS travelled a lot for his work and needed his driving licence for personal reasons and was looking to appeal his sentence.


RS instructed Quentin Hunt, a specialist Criminal Barrister to look after his interests at the Appeal hearing and give him the best chance of success. Quentin was instructed on a Direct Access basis.


Quentin was able to speak to Mr RS in conference and analyse the factual circumstances of the offending and the underlying law; he identified a number of technical legal arguments that had not been previously argued and that he considered would stand a good chance of success at the appeal hearing.


At the Appeal hearing at Brighton Crown Court, Quentin argued that there were Special Reasons attached to the commission of the two offences that meant that Mr RS should not be awarded points upon his driving licence. This had the effect that RS had not reached 12 points and therefore was not liable for disqualification under the ‘totting’ provisions. This had the effect that RS was able to keep on driving and the serve effects of losing his licence were avoided.
