Speeding Fines Perth

Speeding fines in Perth can carry significant financial detriment to an individual, as well as be accompanied by the accrual of demerit points and potential suspension.

Stevenson Legal have extensive experience representing those accused of driving offences in Perth. With fines potentially reaching $1000, and the possibility of gaining up to seven demerit points, making contact with a Stevenson Legal lawyer can be beneficial.

Most speeding offences are dealt with by way of infringement, rather than charging individuals and requiring them to go to court. However, you can always elect to have your matter heard by a court to decide the issue. As there can be unforeseen consequences of electing to have your matter heard by a court (such as a conviction for speeding appearing on your National Police Clearance) it is highly recommended that you obtain legal advice before deciding what to do with a speeding infringement, not after.

HAVE YOU RECEIVED A SPEEDING FINE IN PERTH, WA?

A driver being flashed or pulled over for speeding offences does not always necessitate guilt. There may be a range of defences available that are not always obvious. If you’ve received a speeding fine from a Perth police officer, a Stevenson Legal representative can analyse all aspects of your case and offer high quality legal advice, and if need be, strong legal representation in court and/or negotiation with police.

Even if there is no defence to a speeding charge, and even if you accrue 12 or more demerit points, you may still have options open to you that allow you to keep driving lawfully. If you have any concerns at all you should always seek legal advice before paying an infringement, or electing to go to court, as once certain actions are taken it can be difficult to reverse them.

Make contact with Stevenson Legal by calling 08 9489 4898.

Ihaka Raimona
Nick was extremely clear and concise with his advice from the moment I engaged him and was very knowledgeable about the whole process. But most importantly he got the job done and achieved the desired result for myself. Would highly recommend.
Andrew Riley
Nick is a highly competent individual. He immediately honed in on the most advantageous manner to pursue my case without extracting hours of unproductive, frivolous details and costly charges. Innocence is not a forgone conclusion if you don't know how to navigate the legal system. Without his acumen, I would have ignorantly accepted an outcome with unforeseen long-term repercussions. I owe a debt of gratitude for his services. On the day I was required in court, Nick was able to guide me through the procedure and what I should expect. With out his help, I would still be without a license. I have no problem recommending Nick Stevenson to any of my business associates and Look forward to employing his services in the future.

My partner found herself in a tricky situation involving a drink driving charge. Nick gave us his professional opinion on how he believed the case would pan out. Everything he said that first day was accurate and resulted in a fantastic outcome for us. Highly recommended. Anyone needing legal advice in regards drink driving matters should do themselves a favour and go see Nick. Thanks again for your help and advice!

I highly recommend Stevenson Legal. From first meeting through court appearance Nick was thorough, rational and honest. His manner and explanation of procedure before entering the courtroom was very reassuring and his presence and knowledge when in court was very impressive. I could not be happier with the outcome.

I recently engaged Nicholas Stevenson of Stevenson Legal to represent me against a charge that carried a substantial fine and imprisonment. Nick was able to obtain a "Spent Conviction" for me. Nick was clearly at ease with the court environment and acted with great competency and professionalism. I highly recommend him.
Alun Dufty
I can highly recommend Nick Stevenson. Without his representation I would not have my extraordinary driver's licence for which I am truly grateful. I can now keep my job which I was in danger of losing. Nick is always available, friendly, understanding and speaks in easy to understand language, never judgemental, Simply the best!
Wendy Andri
Nick is an outstanding lawyer, who doesn't sell you the world and deliver you nothing. He uses he extensive legal knowledge and experience, to give you a defence which will lead to the best outcome in relation to the charge you are facing. He is extremely competent in compiling any evidence which may provide mitigating circumstances to your offence. I would not hesitate to use his services again in the future. A 5/5 lawyer and his fees are money well spent.

Thankyou Nick for a job well done. My partner was looking down the barrel at imprisonment if she did nothing but turn up to court but Nick managed to gain the minimum time off the road and a minimal fine considering what could of been for a major DUI offence. I found Nick to be very thorough and extremely professional. He ticked all the right boxes on the day!! Thanks again Nick!!
Sean Osborne
Nick was very professional in the handling of my son Adam’s application for his Extraordinary Drivers Licence. Nick is very direct and honest we thought our son would get refused but Nick’s preparation and legal knowledge got our son through this dark chapter. I would have no hesitation in recommending Nick, Thanks again Nick!
Karen Bowers
Highly recommend Nick he has helped me with 2 cases first one lifting a life licence ban and now getting my extraordinary licence condition changed to allow me a truck licence when the prosecutors objected to it. Both cases he was successful. Very knowledgeable with law and great help HIGHLY RECOMMEND👍👍👍👍
Damien Jurgens
This experience of losing my licence has been one of the toughest to deal with but dealing with Nick Stevenson has been one of the best outcomes I could have imagined. His professionalism and attention to detail in his organisational skills are second to none and made my court experience feel like a breeze. I was honoured my extraordinary licence by the judge on the day with no fuss whatsoever. Thank you Nick Stevenson I am very pleased I chose you to be my lawyer through a tough situation. Thank you!
Jarrod Coote
Nick was very professional from the onset with my case. Nick informed me of all required information throughout the whole process and made it very simple and stress free. I applied for EDL which was required for work purposes. Due to a thorough collection of supporting documents and a extensive justification as to why my EDL was necessary we were successful. Not only were we successful in being granted my EDL but all desired outcomes were achieved, only the mandatory restrictions were applied to my EDL. Due to the successful outcome of my hearing I have been able to continue with my employment without any worry or repercussions and most importantly loss of income. I can't thank Nick enough for his efforts and I highly recommend anyone who finds themself in a similar situation to seek his services asap to achieve the best possible outcome. Thankyou again Nick!

From the first meeting with Nick, I was so impressed with his high attention to detail and customer service. He helped me organize all the information required, His Focus on Completing Task and working collaboratively to ensure a consist approach was shared. On the day I was required in Court, Nick was able to guild me though the procedure and what I should expect. Without his help, I would still be without a licence. I have No Problem recommending Nick Stevenson to any of my Business Associates and Look forward to employing his services in the future.
