Traffic Law

traffic law

Whether you have received an Expiation Notice from the Police or a Summons to attend Court, you should seek legal advice from a specialist traffic lawyer before paying the expiation notice or attending court.

When the police direct you to stop, you should pull over immediately, switch off your engine, and remain seated in your vehicle. The police officer will usually approach the driver’s window and ask for your driver’s licence. Show the police your driver’s licence, give them your full name and address, and be polite to them at all times. It is possible that a good attitude may make the difference between receiving a warning and the police throwing the book at you.

Regardless of the nature or seriousness of the alleged traffic offences, the outcome of your traffic matter can have negative effects on your employment and financial opportunities.

With the lawyers at Lincoln Chambers Barristers & Solicitors by your side, you will not have to face the expiation notice or court process on your own. Our lawyers will ensure that you understand the process from start to finish by explaining:

•     the nature of the charges;
•     what will have to be proven by the Police;
•     the potential penalties;
•     any defences that may be available to you; and
•     whether it is worth contesting an expiation notice.

By providing clear and honest advice, our lawyers will help maximise your chances of achieving a favourable outcome.

We will provide an estimate of the costs before commencing work.

Depending on your circumstances and whether the penalties can include a term of imprisonment, you may be eligible for a grant of legal aid funding. We will be happy to assist you in preparing an application for legal aid funding.

If you are not eligible for legal aid funding, feel free to ask us about a payment plan.

Please call us on 1300 546 200 to speak with one of our expert lawyers as soon as you receive an expiation notice or summons.
