The sentencing council have recently published clarification regarding the position of loss of employment with regards to the exceptional hardship argument which was published earlier this month. It no longer leads to an automatic finding of exceptional hardship. We at JTS are aware of this and prepare all our cases in accordance with the new guidelines.
Due to being busy as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic the courts are currently unable to swear statutory declarations at this time. However we here at JTS are able to and are more than happy to help.
We have recently had 2 new people joining or growing team of specialist lawyers.
Tineka O’Mara is a Solicitor with experience in dealing with driving cases, taxi licensing and serious crime.
Samuel Hinds is a Trainee Solicitor specialising in driving offences and fare evasion as well as police complaint matter.
JTs would like to welcome both Tineka and Sam to our expanding team.

Another good result for JTS a a person who had been accused of speeding on four separate occasions over a period of a week faceed disqualification under totting.we were able to negotiate with the central ticket Office that there were exceptional reasons why why these matters should not be preceded with and therefore a disqualification was avoided and a minimum number of penalty points imposed if you need help contact ask now for free initial advice

We have noticed a significant increase in clients who have revived letters in the last few days notifying them that they have been banned without their knowledge. It appears that at the moment the courts are imposing can first ask questions later policy. Often the disqualifications of offences that the person did not commit or not made aware of and this has been compounded by the current coronavirus crisis. We are able to liaise with the courts and seek to quickly reverse the disqualification on your behalf and hope to limit the impact on your life. More often than not these cases can conclude with no penalty points or a small number of penalty points and a small fine and no disqualification. We are also able to conduct process initially over the telephone and almost immediately. Call or email us now for further assistance
