About Me

About Me

At Stephen Oldham Solicitors I connect directly with motorists who had been accused of driving offences.

I am a specialist solicitor with a wide experience representing drivers in the police station, Magistrates’ Courts and the Crown Court.

In 2015 I set up Stephen Oldham Solicitors. It is a different type of firm enabled by technology and by new ways of working in the justice system.

I aim to deal with everything in a case personally from the first enquiry to the final court hearing.

I don’t have expensive offices or staff. Just a laptop and my mobile phone and me. All of this frees me up to spend the maximum amount of time with the people that I represent. I can also be sure that the quality of everything that I do is right. My clients know that every email, every phone call and every court hearing has been covered by an experienced solicitor.

There really is no substitute for experience and expertise. As well as being a fully qualified solicitor I have these qualifications:

  • Member of the Law Society Criminal Litigation Accreditation Scheme – an award that is only given to solicitors who have reached a required standard and level of experience in police stations and the Magistrates’ Courts.
  • Higher Rights of Audience – means that I am authorised to appear in the Crown Court. Most solicitors are not allowed to appear in Crown Court trials. Traditionally that is a job that only barristers are allowed to do.
  • 20 years’ experience representing clients at the police station, the the Magistrates’ Courts and in the Crown Court.
  • 5 years’ experience working at one of the country’s best known firms of motoring solicitors.

3 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

Before I became a solicitor I was a European tour guide. I still guide one or two groups of American high school students on a trip every year. See this post for more about my secret travel life.

I play the bass in this brass band.

I once ran a marathon. It took me 4 hours and 45 seconds. The result is buried here somewhere. I need to do another someday to get down to 4 hours.
