What are Motoring Convictions?

The complex nature of motoring offences and the potentially devastating effect that the loss of a licence can have, is not something to be underestimated. For the most serious motoring matters you can go to prison and your case can be sent to the Crown Court for sentence.

Hi Shetal, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for what you have done, and all your hard work over the last 12 months. On the back of this the evidence which was presented in Court was second to none and no stone unturned. There has always been a professional yet welcoming service from you and your colleagues. This is a very an important factor with the families that I support and the need for them to feel comfortable. I would happily recommend Best Solicitors and your services to others.Claire Walker, Family Support Worker, Home-Start South Yorkshire

I am an Advocacy worker at Ashiana Sheffield. I support BAMER women who suffered or are still suffering from Domestic Violence, Forced Marriage, Female Genital Mutilation, Human Trafficking and Honour Based Violence. Many of our clients needed a family law solicitor. I chose Best Solicitors for my clients because they have a very good reputation. Shetal Gudgeon has been a great support for Ashiana’s service users. She would meet them on short notice because in most cases they need urgent help. The consultation session is always free of charge for my vulnerable clients. Not only is Shetal competent but she is also empathetic and knows how to listen to distressed clients. All of my clients have had successful outcomes to their cases.
