Drink Driving Technicalities
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.

What happens in court for drink driving?

“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 Garda 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 court 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 court?
4. Can you avoid a drink driving ban?


Patrick is happy to go through each and every question that clients 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.

Is it worth it getting a solicitor for drink driving?

Yes. As a former member of An Garda Siochana (Irish Police) and outspoken critic of that organisation, Patrick Horan Solicitor 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 clients in this area and his advice in dealing with drink driving charges, as well as the steps to be taken when the Gardai (Police) are seeking a statement from prospective clients, has proven to be invaluable over the years.

Patrick travels all over Ireland to defend clients charged with drink driving offences and has built a steady team of leading drink driving barristers to help him represent his clients wherever they've been arrested or summoned to court.

Patrick works seven days a week. If you have a query or question call him. He'd be glad to speak with you.

Once Phelan Solicitors enters the UK market, Patrick will pick up there where he left off in Ireland: travelling across the country to help defend his clients wherever they find themselves in trouble.

What happens if I’m caught drink driving?

In many cases if convicted you will face an automatic disqualification for at least 12 months. However, there are defences open to fight these prosecutions.

How long does it take for a drink driving case to go to court?

Approximately 5 to 6 weeks, sometimes longer depending on procedural issues.

Is it worth it getting a Solicitor for Drink Driving?
