Unity Street Chambers - Bristol: A leading set of Barristers serving the South West and beyond


The Motoring Law team at Unity Street Chambers is highly experienced in the field of road traffic law, regularly representing clients charged with driving offences, from the most serious including causing death by dangerous driving, to driving without due are and attention or driving whilst using a mobile phone. Our advocates are all experts at dealing with any aspect of motoring law and are more than happy to informally discuss any case prior to being formally instructed. Our barristers understand that the loss of a driving licence can often lead to loss of job as well as possible home, which is why every one of our advocates will explore every avenue in both defence and mitigation.

These are just some of the areas upon which we advise on a regular basis:

  • Causing Death by Dangerous Driving
  • Inconsiderate and Careless Driving
  • Dangerous Driving
  • Driving with Excess Alcohol
  • Speeding
  • Failing to Stop/Report following an Accident
  • S 172-Failing to Provide Driver Information/Identity
  • Using a Mobile Phone

The above list is far from exhaustive. Our barristers primarily cover Magistrates and Crown Courts in the Western Circuit but willingly take instructions from further afield. Contact out clerk Clair Wadden who will also be pleased to discuss our fees, including fixed fees.
