About

As a motoring law expert Matt famously uncovered that numbering on speed signs on some of Britain’s busiest motorways were in fact the wrong shape (have a read of the Daily Mail’s article) resulting in thousands of speeding fines being overturned.

He is a specialist in all aspects of motoring offences and road traffic law and represent clients throughout England and Wales. He has an enviable success rate and if there is a way of keeping your licence, he will find it. Reputation and integrity are fundamental to our business and if your case has no merit, he will tell you at the outset before you have incurred any legal costs.

Please feel free to get in touch with Matt and he will give you a free telephone consultation and advise you on your options and whether there is any real value in instructing a solicitor.

He represents individuals and companies in both Courts and Tribunals, prosecuted by agencies including the Crown Prosecution Service, Trading Standards, HM Revenue & Customs, VOSA, the DVLA, the DVSA, Landlord Licensing, the DWP, the HSE, FACT (SKY prosecutions), and the SIA. He appears before Council Taxi and Premises Licensing committees, conducting appeals against committee decisions in Magistrates and Crown Court.

Over 20 years, he has gained extensive experience as a specialist criminal litigator, representing his clients from the PACE interview under caution stage, right through to preparing complex cases for trial. He works alongside senior barristers and Queen’s Counsel in cases that involve murder, fraud, drug conspiracies, POCA/confiscation proceedings, serious sexual offences and other serious crime.

Outside of the law, Matt enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons, walking and gardening.
