Reckless Driving Lawyers

Work with a fierce and committed reckless driving lawyer with Australian Lawyers and Advocates

Reckless driving is a criminal offence in Australia that occurs when an individual operates a motor vehicle in a manner that is dangerous to other people or property. This may include driving at excessive speeds, weaving in and out of traffic, ignoring traffic signals or engaging in other reckless behaviour behind the wheel. It can ultimately lead to more serious offences such as Negligent Driving (Occasioning Grievous Bodily Harm), Negligent Driving (Occasioning Death), Dangerous Driving (Occasioning Grievous Bodily Harm) and Dangerous Driving (Occasioning Death).


It’s important to remember that reckless driving is not defined by a specific blood alcohol concentration or substance use, unlike drink or drug driving. Instead, it is defined by how the vehicle is operated.


If you have been charged with a reckless driving offence, you should seek the assistance of an experienced reckless driving lawyer. Our team of reckless driving lawyers can help you navigate the legal process, explain your charges, inform you of your rights and possible penalties and provide guidance on the best defence strategy.


We are also highly competent to represent you in court and work to mitigate the potential consequences of the reckless driving offence. Depending on the complexities of your case, we can also negotiate with the prosecution to reduce the number and/or severity of your charges or even secure a dismissal of your charges.

Australian Lawyers and Advocates believes everyone deserves access to affordable legal representation, which is why we offer flexible payment arrangements with fixed or time-costed fees tailored to your case.

What a reckless driving offence may mean for you

The legal consequences of a reckless driving offence in Australia can be severe and are taken very seriously by law enforcement. Depending on the specific circumstances of the offence, a person found guilty of reckless driving faces a criminal conviction, potential heavy fines, lengthy disqualification periods from driving and possibly imprisonment.

Repeat offenders may face more drastic penalties, including larger fines, longer periods of disqualification and longer potential prison sentences.

A reckless driving offence may also have significant consequences for an individual personally. It may impact an individual’s ability to maintain or obtain future employment and affect their relationship with friends and family.

What our clients are saying

I would like to acknowledge my sincere gratitude to Mr Jack Leitner. I was represented by another firm in Parramatta Local Court. My previous representatives’ preparation for my case was atrocious. I changed my representation. Within minutes of our first phone call, I knew this man knew his stuff. His preparation, professionalism, research, calming influence, everything, was incredible.
I owe everything to Jack, he has changed my life. You are a legend.


‘Daniel is a great solicitor. I’ve used his service twice now and he really turns up for you.”


‘I can highly recommend Daniel and the team from Australian Lawyers and Advocates. My matter was looked after by Daniel directly and the level of expertise and knowledge provided by Daniel was not only outstanding but kept me at ease throughout the entire process of my case. The guidance provided by Daniel and the team lead to a positive outcome on my behalf. Thank you.”


I would like to recommend Jack Leitner. I want to extend my appreciation for all your efforts during this long and difficult path. Your availability, follow-up, and especially the attentive and prompt replies have been invaluable. Dealing with the law and lawsuits is not easy for the “common” man. The incarceration of my partner during the course of this legal nightmare was devastating and certainly increased my level of stress while having to deal with this matter at the same time. Please know that your kindness and concern has made a difference. Thank you for helping me through this difficult trial. I am so grateful to you for representing my partner in court, and for being a powerful advocate for my partner throughout these difficult times. Thank you so much for your passionate, thoughtful, and brilliant work. To say I am pleased would be a great understatement. Again thank you so much for everything you and your firm has done for me. I really cannot tell you how much it all means to me.

Scott P.
