Motoring and Driving Offence Solicitors, quotes

" ..... Be warned, I may have to keep sending you random emails for the rest of my life, just to say THANK YOU! Thank you for getting such a fantastic outcome for us. Thank you for all your hard work on our behalf. Thank you for being so efficient & professional, always keeping us up to date & informed all the way through the process, which made it much less worrying for us. I just wanted to tell you once more how grateful we are to you. It was a shame you weren't able to talk to (my husband) in person that day, as his voice would of may you realise you grateful he was."

"Many many thanks for your help during my court case, I would not have coped on my own in court. Your help and support .. when I was “losing it”, was so appreciated, and the Barrister...was excellent.

The outcome was more than I could ever have wished for and my driving licence was saved, 4 points and a small fine was such a relief. I cannot tell you how glad I was to find your site on the internet after making a mess of the first hearing. With only a week before the second trial, you pulled out all the stops and had it sorted.

I must admit I was worried at first, you were so far away from me, an internet site, and I really was not sure I was doing the right thing. I am so glad I trusted you, you were always at the end of the phone and emailing me any information I needed. The Barrister you found me (at such short notice) was a local man already known by the court, I could not have had anyone better to be there with me, so friendly and relaxed, he put me at ease straight away.

I had never been in a court of law before, and the 4 points are my first in over 40 years of driving, so a very good outcome in the end. My family are also very grateful, as you know, they depend on me driving so that they can work.

I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who needs help. .."


"An island of excellence in a sea of mediocrity"


“Words cannot express how happy I am with the service you provided.By pure chance I came across your website and was not sure if I could trust a solicitor firm that was not local. How wrong I would have been if I went elsewhere. You have been fantastic!

You definitely get what you pay for with Patterson Law. I would be more than happy to tell anybody how professional, polite and organised you were from start to finish.

Words cannot express how brilliant you and your staff are at what they do. You are all a credit to the industry that you work in and there is always somebody at the end of the phone when you need them. Thank you so much – without Patterson Law, I would be without my driving licence.” June 2010


"Patterson Law managed to select, recruit and retain staff with amazing client oriented skill. I was pleasantly surprised to see that everyone was able and willing to provide excellent, effective and efficient service in a cordial and easy going manner. Ms. Patterson appears to be one of the very few legal professionals having not only an excellent mind but also a very good heart. While dealing with my case Patterson Law demonstrated the highest competence, empathy and sensitivity I could have wished for and I take this opportunity to express my gratitude and to wish Patterson Law every success for the future."

We recently represented a client who had initially instructed well-known solicitors who claim to be motoring specialists.

Initially they given our client the same advice that we gave, namely that he had a defence to driving without insurance because insurance cannot be invalidated/voided with retrospective effect.

The police have claimed that our client was not insured because he didn't have a valid license. The police claimed that this automatically invalidated his insurance. There is extremely strong case law that states that insurance cannot be invalidated with retrospective effect and that the insurance company can only void insurance into the future.

The law firm in question changed their advice at the last minute after taking our clients fees. He came to us in a panic only a few days before the sentencing date and we took over the case.

We have just read an article on a web site suggesting that if a Notice Of Intended Prosecution arrives more than 14 days after the date of the alleged offence you can "Reject It".
