- 3314 out of our last 3436 clients (at risk of a driving ban) avoided disqualification (were not banned from driving) or got a significantly reduced driving ban by Patterson Law arguing exceptional hardship / special reasons / defending their case / or persuading the court to impose points instead (96.45%).
- We have successfully defended 3229 Clients out of the last 3439 clients where we advised them that they had a defence and that they should plead not guilty (93.89%). After negotiation by Patterson Law, 2639 (80%) were dropped by the prosecution without the need for a trial.
- We have maintained a 90% success rate making exceptional hardship arguments for the last 8 years where clients have accumulated 12 or more penalty points within 3 years & were at risk of a totting ban.
- 97.98% of people at risk of discretionary disqualification, for example in a case where the speed was very high, avoided disqualification. Out of 843 cases only 17 at risk of a discretionary ban were disqualified.
*as at 2.6.15 – These figures apply to non-imprisonable offences.
But we don’t want your money unless we can genuinely help! Every case is initially assessed by Emma Patterson, our Primary Motoring Solicitor and legal spokesperson to the Association of British Drivers.
We are often referenced in the press in motoring offence related articles such as this one in the Daily Mail
Additionally Emma is often asked to take part in media interviews such as this recent BBC Radio interview with Mark Forrest discussing some of the more frequently misunderstood motoring laws and offences:
“Firstly, can I thank you and Emma for your time and help today. I called several legal firms … and to say that you stood out from the crowd is such a massive understatement. Right from my first call in you all acted so different to everyone else.”

Read What Our Clients Say About Us;
“At first I was rather sceptical about using a firm that I had never heard of and that were based many miles from me. I certainly needn’t of worried. You, personally, have a very calming nature and I found it very easy to talk to you and, in return, you made everything as clear as possible to me.”
“I was concerned that I would not meet my barrister until shortly before my court appearance, but once again I need not have worried as Vanessa was very good at allaying my anxieties and was fantastic in court. The case was adjourned for a week – for very clever legal reasons that were far beyond me!”
“Overall service from everyone was simply fantastic. Everyone I spoke to worked extremely professionally and diligently in overturning my driving conviction. I would recommend you to all my friends and colleagues.”
“Thank you so much Emma. The answer put my husband’s mind at rest. He now feels he can get a job without worrying too much about his driving licence. I am so glad to have found this service and hope to use it a lot more in the future.”
