About Pragma Law

Lucy is assisted by fellow motoring solicitor Maria Moore with over 30 years’ experience.

We both consider client care to be paramount and are sure you will find us approachable and professional at all times

You’ll speak to a qualified motoring solicitor at all times; how many other lawyers can promise that?

Unlike many ‘law firms’ who use unqualified staff, advice will only be given by a qualified solicitor who has undertaken years of study, training and practise in this area of law. Solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority which gives you added protection. You should be aware that if a law firm is regulated, it’s legally obliged to display its SRA number on its website.

Nowadays, more and more law firms are employing unqualified ‘lawyers’ to handle cases. Whilst some unqualified motoring lawyers are excellent, you cannot be sure of who you’ll get. With Pragma motoring solicitors, you’ll always deal with Lucy Whitaker or Maria Moore, both qualified solicitors, and never anyone else.

Pragma Law are proud to be pro-active. If you need to speak to us, we’ll ensure that happens. We promise to treat you and your motoring matter with the importance you deserve – at all times.

We are passionate about providing a service which offers value for money and try our best to offer consultations at times which are convenient to clients.

We appreciate that it’s important to know how much legal advice is going to cost. We understand that if you’re facing a motoring offence which requires a court hearing (or even if you’re not), it can be a very stressful time. Therefore the last thing you need is a bill for more than you expected to land on your doormat. In most motoring matters, unless our clients request otherwise, we work using Fixed Fees.
