Coronavirus update

Bakers Solicitors remains open for business and available to support the clients who need us.

Our solicitors are working, our telephone lines are open, and we are determined to ensure it is ‘business as usual’ with minimal disruption.

Technology allows Bakers Solicitors to continue representing clients who face personal difficulties. All our staff members have access to laptops and our staff are well equipped to work remotely. We have invested heavily in IT in recent times, including a state-of-the-art internet-based telephone system and cloud-based software. This enables us to keep disruption to an absolute minimum.

Whilst our offices will remain open, we will, in most cases, conduct client meetings by telephone or video conference. Most importantly we will continue to be available for existing and new clients.

Our family law solicitors are familiar with the recently published guidance from the President of the Family Division and as such will be able to represent clients at court hearings remotely or in person. Our criminal defence solicitors are well-used to video link technology but will also continue to attend police stations and courts in person when needed.

If you or an employee is being prosecuted for a driving offence seek specialist help from the team at Bakers Motoring Law. Too many penalty points will often lead to disqualification. The loss of your driving licence can have a very real impact upon your life. The loss of employment is for many a very real consequence of losing their licence. To avoid disqualification you need expert advice and representation.



Our experts have extensive experience in presenting exceptional hardship arguments to the court and rarely lose this sort of argument. An exceptional hardship argument has to be well prepared and well presented. Our experts will do both on your behalf.


Mitigation can be used to stop you from getting to the point at which the court must consider imposing a period of disqualification. Our expert barristers and solicitors are available to represent you nationwide and ensure you get the right result when appearing before the court.


Bakers Solicitors are proud to offer an exclusive course promoting alcohol awareness to workers within the licencing trade.
