Being charged with a serious traffic of driving offence can have consequences. At Breens Solicitors & Conveyancers we have extensive expertise in representing client’s charged with traffic offences such as manner dangerous, speed dangerous, negligent driving causing death or injury and serious driving offences. We understand the serious consequences that can flow from not being able to drive.


Often, people will come to us with the possibility of losing their licence. We understand how much of a burden that this can be for you. Losing your licence is usually a burden as it will often impact your work and personal life. Be assured, we will do everything possible to keep you on the road.


The loss of a driver's licence can prove to be much more than a mere inconvenience, it can have an impact on your employment, your social life, your relationship and your assets.

Our approach to traffic offences is to carefully consider each case and find out whether there is any available defence. There are a number of grounds on which it is often possible to defend traffic offences.


Where there is no viable defence, and a plea of guilty is necessary, it is crucial to prepare properly for the sentencing hearing in order to avoid or at least minimise any licence disqualification and other possible penalties.


With the assistance of our experienced traffic lawyers, you have the best chance of minimising the period of suspension or possible even retaining your licence.

If you have committed a driving infringement which can result in suspension of your licence, do not hesitate to contact Breens Solicitors & Conveyancers on (02) 9600 8000.

Even if you feel that there is no possible defence for your driving infringement, we can appeal to the court for leniency and often this will result a more positive outcome. Do you need to retain your ability to drive or minimise your suspension period?  Do not hesitate to contact Breens Solicitors & Conveyancers on (02) 9600 8000 for assistance and advice.
