Drink Driving Solicitors Mayo Some people -on occasion- insist on pleading guilty when they've been arrested for drink driving. This is almost always a bad idea as there may be a legitimate defence open to a person. It is not the case that exceeding the limit is sufficient to ground a conviction. It is also not the case that drinking and driving is, by itself, illegal. It is certainly not advisable but it is not strictly illegal. What is illegal is driving after having consumed so much alcohol so that you are impaired i.e. incapable of having proper control of a vehicle in a public place. drink driving solicitors mayo drink driving lawyers mayo been caught drink driving ive been caught drink driving what will happen drink driving statistics ireland solicitors specialising in drink driving do i need a solicitor for drink driving is it worth getting a solicitor for drink driving solicitors for driving offences mayo

Drink Driving Solicitors Mayo: Patrick Horan Solicitor

They’ve seen the ads, they know they shouldn’t do it, they’ve done it

Yes, they had consumed alcohol and they’re in a car and driving, and then they suddenly realise “I’m in trouble here”

I do feel a good deal of sympathy for those people

They can’t explain why they’ve done it and then they start to judge themselves

They start to assume that they must be a terrible person because they’ve done this thing which they know they shouldn’t have done

Usually, it’s a reaction to something else that’s happened, like a row, an event at home, some unexplained thing, that they just needed to be away

It is legal advice, but a lot of times its not, its just talking to the person

That’s what they want, they want you to speak to them

But if you combine those things, skill level and I suppose empathy and understanding

People appreciate that and that’s what I try and do
