Our Fees

Our FeesAt Palmers Solicitors, we appreciate that facing charges for a motoring offence is stressful enough, without the added worry of how much defending and preserving your licence will cost.

We will assess the details of your case to determine how best to progress, and then outline the likely costs involved.
