Drink Driving Technicalities.

Patrick Horan is regarded as a specialist drink driving and motoring offence Solicitor in Ireland. His experience is without parallel in Ireland.

The one word that Patrick consistently reiterates to new clients is “Detail.” As he explains it:
“Detail is the golden rule. It is one of the least appreciated aspects of criminal defence. The trial Judge wasn’t there on the day that you were arrested and therefore doesn’t know what was said by whom and when.

“So, the Judge is trying to assess the credibility of the witness as they give evidence before them, and one of the main criteria by which a Judge assesses the credibility of any witness is their recall of events.

“What time was it? Where were they driving? Where had they come from? Where were they stopped? What did the Police Officer say to them? What was the weather like? Did anything strike them as odd or strange?

“Witnesses consistently let themselves down by a poor recollection of what happened when they were arrested for drink driving.
“I’ve always made it a cornerstone of my defence of drink driving cases that on my first consultation with the client I insist that they write down in great detail all of the events which occurred on the day they were arrested while those events are still fresh in their minds.
“It may be many months before the case comes to trial and in that time essential details may understandably be forgotten”.

When a person is arrested for drink driving numerous questions come to mind, usually all at once

1. Should I get a solicitor for drink driving?
2. What happens if you get caught drink driving?
3. How long does it take for a drink driving charge to go to trial?
4. Can you avoid a drink driving ban?
5. What are the drink driving limits?


Patrick is happy to go through each and every question that you may have in a clear and calm manner. His advocacy skills have been long recognised as much as his skill at putting clients at ease and making sure that they fully understand the court process from start to finish.


As a former member of An Garda Siochana (Irish Police) and outspoken critic of that organisation, Patrick has excelled in defending clients who have been charged with driving offences over the years.

Defending drink driving charges before the courts is only part of the battle: understanding how the prosecution thinks is equally important.

Patrick is uniquely placed to help you in this area and his advice in dealing with drink driving charges, as well as the steps to be taken when the Police are seeking a statement from prospective clients, has proven to be invaluable over the years.

He fights hard for his clients. That characteristic is important to them and it’s something he’s proud of.

Is it worth it getting a Solicitor for Drink Driving?

Yes. Drink Driving law is quite complex and heavily contested. Legislation has become tougher but with hard work these cases can be won.

Are there drink driving loopholes?

No. This is a misconception, largely driven by the media. There are statutory defences to drink driving, but where imprisonment is a risk, leaving court a free man is paramount.

Patrick Horan of Phelan Solicitors is recognised throughout Ireland as a drink driving and motoring offence expert.

Phelan Solicitors will be commencing business across the United Kingdom in 2020. At Phelan’s we’ve fought hard for our clients in Ireland. We’ll do the same for future UK clients.
