If you have been convicted in your absence or convicted after trial you will be frustrated and alarmed, particularly more so if you have been disqualified as part of the sentence OR you have pleaded guilty and feel that the sentence is too heavy
There is no need to panic but you have to act quickly as there are strict time limitations in which to appeal.
You only have 21 days in which to lodge your appeal so prompt decisions and actions are required to ensure you do not miss vital deadlines.
Your options are not straightforward so why delay call one of our expert solicitors to discuss the best option for you and put your mind at ease.
Can I appeal a speeding ticket?
I have been convicted after trial, what can I do?
What happens at an appeal against conviction?
I accept my guilt but the sentence was far too high what can I do?
I have been informed by the court that I have been convicted and sentenced about an offence I know nothing about, what can I do?
I have been convicted for an offence I knew nothing about, what can I do?
Are there any other appeals other than to the Crown Court?
Can I have my disqualification lifted pending my appeal?
I was offered the drink drivers rehabilitation course, if I am appealing do I still need to it?
If you were offered the drink drivers rehabilitation course you will have been informed as to the deadline by which it needs to be completed, if you appeal is after this deadline then you will not be offered the course again.
It is a decision for you to make early on in your appeal. You are taking a gamble if you want to see if you win your appeal, if you do then it will not matter whether you took the course or not but if you lose and are beyond the deadline you will NOT be given the opportunity to do it and your disqualification will have to be served in full without the 25% discount that the course offers.

were fantastic. From the first telephone conversation where I enquired about the services and cost involved everything was totally clear. Both Andrea and Lloyd who I dealt with were professional but warm, reassuring and were always available to answer any concerns or questions I had. Right up until the day I entered court they were there for me. My barrister who represented me in court, Lisa, was again also fantastic.
Right down to value for money (and I did look around) I really cannot fault the service I got from Auriga Advocates.
