My current solicitor believes they are going to use some 'cocktail of drugs' argument that the combined effect of the prescription medication and the anti anxiety pills caused it, by some sort of interaction.
Estimated cost from my solicitor is 6-10 grand at least in legal fees, and I cannot really afford it. So depending on the attitude of the CPS prior to my trial in April, if they don't lessen the charge to "driving without due care", which I will please guilty to, I will have no choice but to plead guilty as I cannot afford to defend myself.
I know I am stretching this Jo, and if you want to upgrade the question so I have to pay you more for the answer, then please do.
I am worried my solicitor has a vested interest in making me pay this money, and he may or may not negotiate with the CPS as vigorously as I would want. I do not believe this is the case however, but even if their is a slim possibility then this is why I am asking for your advice.
If you wish I would be more than happy to book a phone consultation outside of this (I hope suggesting it is not outside the rules) so that we could chat for an hour and you could charge me your usual rate.
