Customer Question

My son faces court 29/03/2016 for mid range drink driving charge.He was on green P plates. His first offence.He is employed but a low income earner-casual nursery assistant. Is it necessary or advisable to engage an attorney or is a court appointed solicitor likely to represent him and to what effect?

Hello
Sadly he will lose his licence for around 6 months.

Mid range, short driving history where the limit for alcohol level for a P plater is zero.
He should obtain a solicitor, but his chances of getting his licence back is next to zero sadly.
I wish I could give better news.
