Specialist Road Traffic Solicitor Ruth Peters regularly appears in courts across England and Wales helping clients navigate the often-intimidating court process. Ruth frequently represents clients at risk of disqualification under the totting up provisions and has an outstanding success rate meaning that the majority of her clients can drive away from court with their licence intact.
