We understand that cost is important. Quality legal services are not cheap but here at Motoring Defence (a division of John Onions Solicitors) we only use the best and brightest Solicitors and Barristers. We have worked hard to keep our costs down but without compromising on quality.

As soon as you instruct us you will be told who will be conducting your case and will be provided with that person’s mobile number/email address.

All our Lawyers will take calls both in and outside of office hours because we understand how stressful these cases can be and sometimes you may need advice in the evening or at the weekend. This is a bespoke and personal service.

Whilst we do offer an hourly rate most of our clients find that a fixed fee agreement is preferable. This means that you can plan your budget safe in the knowledge that there are no nasty surprises coming!

Once we have conducted the initial free consultation we can give you a quotation for your case. You are under no obligation to use our service and we will never charge you for initial advice.

Below are some examples of what you would be likely to pay.
